Are you concerned about a Russian nuclear attack? Should we be concerned? On one hand it would make no sense for Russia to launch such an attack. On the other hand it didn’t make sense for them to invade Ukraine either.
Apparently we can’t rely on Russia to exercise good judgment.
With that in mind I have to wonder about the state of Russia’s nuclear weapons. As it turns out their conventional forces suffered from corruption and poor maintenance. So how much of the money that was supposed to go to Russia’s nukes went to vodka and hookers instead?
It would seem like a perfect area for scamming money. Everything is supposed to be extremely secret. Nukes haven’t been tested in the real world for something like 20 years. Probably many of those in command expect to never use their weapons. Skimming funds from the program probably looked low risk.
Russia launching may be a remote possibility, but the consequences of a launch are dire. Keep your potassium iodide pills handy.
