Russia boasts of nuclear edge over USA, NATO

[link to www.drudgereport.com]

The chief of Russia's armed forces said on Friday a strong nuclear arsenal will ensure military superiority over the West as Russia seeks to fulfill a multi-billion dollar plan to modernize its forces by 2020.

Russia, facing a likely recession this year after U.S. and European sanctions over Ukraine and a fall in oil prices, must deal with new forms of Western aggression, including economic confrontation, said armed forces chief Gen. Valery Gerasimov.

Despite deep economic woes, he said Russian armed forces would receive more than 50 new intercontinental nuclear missiles this year.

"Support for our strategic nuclear forces to ensure their high military capability combined with...growth of the military potential of the general forces will assure that (the United States and NATO) do not gain military superiority over our country," said Gerasimov.

Russians boast, that is what they do. MAD is still assured for both the USA and Russia, so it doesn't really matter if they have more.

Well, I guess I am giving Russia the benefit of the doubt. Most of their missiles would probably fail on launch.

The US still has more than enough nuclear weapons though. May not always be the case, but for now the US still has the most accurate missiles, and the highest number of forward staged weapons with first strike capability (lots on subs).
