COLD WAR 2.0: State TV Says Russia Could Turn USA to ‘Radioactive Ash’

Moscow (AFP) – A leading anchor on Russian state television on Sunday described Russia as the only country capable of turning the United States into “radioactive ash”, in an incendiary comment at the height of tensions over the Crimea referendum.

“Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,” anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television.

Kiselyov made the comment to support his argument that the United States and President Barack Obama were living in fear of Russia led by President Vladimir Putin amid the Ukraine crisis.

His programme was broadcast as the first exit polls were being published showing an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voting to leave Ukraine and join Russia.

He stood in his studio in front of a gigantic image of a mushroom cloud produced after a nuclear attack, with the words “into radioactive ash”.

    Yea right. When we send our sodomite soldiers led by transvestite priests with aborted fetus skulls about their waists holding high the inverted Cross; we’ll see whose talking then…

    • Ricarrdo estavans

      I dig your elocution.

  • Abby

    They feel emboldened and I’m not sure that Obama might intentionally be laying back to let Mother Russia have her way on the earth. I keep thinking about that interview/photo shoot where Obama still had his mic on and basically rolled over and let Putin’s rep. piss on him when he promised after he won 2008 “he could do more”….

    The one world government ruling bankster criminals of the European and Federal (Feudal) Reserve declare they want world peace and the only way to achieve this goal is a one world government. Bullschit. They make most of their money during wartime.

  • Paladin

    Yeah, that’s because during the time that the US was reducing it’s nuclear arsenal the Russians have been building and stockpiling theirs.

    Ha ha comrades… the joke on you it is.

    • Will

      Russia’s stockpile of weapons has decreased massively since the heyday of the Cold War. In terms of active weapons, the US is still reckoned to have more than Russia. Not that this really matters of course – you don’t need all that many to wipe out, say 10 significant cities.

      • Clint

        Who did this reckoning? I lived through one cold war and a few hot ones, and frankly, I don’t want any more. In nuclear war, whoever gets the first lick is probably going to be the winner. If you can call a super radiated planet a winner?

  • ss442es

    Does this idiot not think we would hit back? What is the point of that statement? California has a GNP higher than that of Russia and the only reason they have nukes today is because they stole them from us. The Russians haven’t had an original thought since Tchaikovsky and The Nut Cracker Opus. Which is really quite good, the into on itunes.

    • Clint

      There is something about “The Nut Cracker Opus” that sends shudders through me.

  • Will

    No one, not even Russia would want this to develop into full conflict. It should be no surprise that Putin went to seize the land on which a significant portion of the Russian navy is situated. The script seems to run in a way terribly similar to Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia before.
    Russia has made use of political pressure via gas supplies to Ukraine very effectively in the past, but Russia is equally dependant on exports of oil and gas, mostly to Europe. Cut out the market and you cut out a portion of the Russian state budget which it can ill afford to lose, and after a mild European winter they aren’t so short of gas for now either, so making a point shouldn’t be too difficult.

    • Clint

      Anyone with half a brain knows that is the case. The problem is, Obama and the fearless jungle warrior John Kerry, didn’t get the email.

  • suz

    Obummer is weak and showing it. Down sizing our military and getting rid of good Generals, etc. He wants to destroy the US and he’s doing it piece by piece

    • Libertarian Soldier

      He believes that we are an affront to other sovereigns by being powerful and that if we get out of the National Defense business, all the countries are going to sing kumbaya and fire their nukes and ballistics into outer space and we’ll all be one!

      That’s from the database of bad ideas he’s been going through.

      • Clint

        You are right, he’s an idiot. If not, he sure is a good actor.

        • Libertarian Soldier

          He’s a radical, extreme, right wing islamist using the socialist user’s manual and their money while he’s out overthrowing governments for the muslim brotherhood (Yemen, Egypt, Libya, Syria) and and making his domestic policy mirror his foreign concerns. Dumb 4$$ democrats don’t know they’re being used by the real right wing!

  • Up Huff

    Idiot doesn’t know about MAD, does he? Mutually Destructive

    • Clint

      If Russia unleashed every nuke they have in our direction, Obama would wet his panties before he would hit the nuke button. I say that with all sincerity. We have no leaders with any backbone.

      • Up Huff

        The story is that he wears Depends. Backwards so he can catch whatever from wherever. Most likely it’s brain cells which have a straight shot through to his rectum, the only part that seems fully functional.. Unfortunate that since there are few useful ones to start with.

  • giegie

    While Obama was destroying our country along with our military, Russia has been increasing their strength for years. I’ve never called friendship with them a ‘cold war’ and know everyone knows why. They cold turn us to ash, hate to say it but true.

  • anAmericanByChoice

    The cold water is not over! The idiots who speak of disarmament need to wake up before it is too late! The communists are still in power, the USSR just changed shirt, and it’s now Russia… but nothing changed. Only the useful |d|ots believe that it did change, and the useful |d|ots have all been put in places where they have decision power, starting with the one who now sits in the oval office, who seems to be mighty wih the pen, in spite of having a week, limited brain!

  • Clint

    I have a good idea! Let’s destroy more of our nuclear arsenal! We can all be sure that Russia will do likewise, right? Wrong. We are being led either by fools or traitors, it’s your choice. God help us.

  • bushwacko

    Neva happen capt’n. Silly Hilly hit the old “reset button”, the left lord sez , “I’ll have more flexibility when I am reelected” and Kommando Kerry sez that “it’s nothing personal.” While the Ruskies sez bite me!!

    They ought to remember Chernobyl..
    My comment would be, and Visa-Versa, what a load of crap….

    Those of the liberty school understand that voluntary associations of free men are capable of far more than detached central planners.
