An older nuclear weapon can kill just as many people as a brand new one, as long as it has been maintained.

Well, at least those 'modern weapons' won't be used to target western civilian aviation, like the SAMs Qatar supplied to Libya with Western blessing and are in al Qaeda's hands now, shutting down embassies worldwide.

More blowback in the works? Let's hope not.

I agree, the US nuclear weapons are just as much garbage. I read an article about nuclear weapons leaking in storage silos in many locations in the US, I am sure Russia has a similar problem as they built them at the same time.
The US recycles its depleted waste into ammunition. That way it can dispose of it around the world. Russia has no such opportunity.

Speaking about blow back , if the Embassy is closed this week , what about waiting till next when its open.????.
I will eat my hat if the blow back involves any blowing up while the Embassy is in lock down, unless there going to lock them down for good.
Then I will just continue my normal dietary routine.

I pray to the God of Abraham that the US and our Allies see fit to use nuclear weapons on the devil-worshiping hordes of islam.

The closing of the embassies is a sign of ominous portent. I have a feeling that a whole lot of muslims are about to get dead.

The Russians are a disgrace. A bunch of drunken, toe-dancing queers. They are impotent against US might.

The USA should order Israel to fire rockets at that abomination built atop the Temple Mount......while it is full of arabs.

It's good to see one man is astute enough to comprehend the situation.
It appears the Muslim world ( Qatar, Saud ) armed Al Qaeda with surface to air missiles. I wouldn't say the west gave the blessing as air superiority was always in Nato's hands. I think these so called friend nations know exactly what they are giving and to whom. By making a larger conflict the destabilization doesn't end with Iraq or Afghanistan. I also believe United States aircraft have a jamming device the FAA is aware of for just this situation.

Wouldn't be the first attempts. I strongly believe in some crash scenarios even one off of New York years ago was a boat launched shoulder held missile attack that downed an airliner. The US government is containing all the facts in American citizens best interest apparently.

Queers? This is the west which aloows gays to marry and adopt kids, not Russia.

Israel is an evil state. The hystory of Israel is the history of agression, mmurder, robbong and occupation from Israeli side. And I`m talking not just about modern Israel. Read bible! It` written there how ancient Jews came looting, shooting, killing and enslaving the population of ancient Palestine! The only fault of their victims was that they lived on the land which, Jews say, was promissed to them by God. Yet, they certainly cannot prove that. Jews are no better than German nazis.

To be precise, lesbian necrophiliac. Only cadavers could tolerate her sexual advances without vomiting. Well, OK - maybe Abe too, if she bound and gagged him. He likes that, I heard.

Bud the deeper you dig in most societies if not all you just described the roots of most countries. The gay acceptance thing is all over the world. It's not in Russia because once again Putin being a dictator has his will put into law. Now what's he going to do to the athletes at the Olympics? openly gay and gay married participants are already calling for answers of how they will be treated...jailed? Beat? Killed?
Perhaps the security threat and construction delays are the real problem, this is an a1 distraction though and a way to boycott, save face ect...

Russian 'anti-gay propaganda law' won't be enforced at Sochi 2014 Olympics

http://rt.com/news/russia-olympics-gay-law-94...

It isn't an "anti-gay" law as if it's outlawing gays, but a law against gay propaganda. Duh!

Quite a few of countries accept such things as gay marriage and adoption of child by gay couple. Your Canada is in the list. There`s a party of pedophils in Canada then. Which wants to pass legeslation which allows to have sex with children. You probably think this is a trait of high civilization but you`re wrong. This is the mark of decadence. Russia is a healthier nation than Canada. Sorry but it`s true.

Yeah, but they kill a lot of muslims. That's why we love them.
