It's something most people don't think of, I try not to, but it's pretty scary stuff

In today's world, sophisticated weapons of mass destruction are at the hands of actual human beings that can bring death to so many. I remember when I was young ( very young ) back in 1962 - "The Cuban Missile Crisis"

The Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962

According to "The Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962 was a direct and dangerous confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War and was the moment when the two superpowers came closest to the nuclear conflict" Thankfully any action was avoided.

A warning from Russian President Vladimir Putin

First of all, let me show you a launch from a couple of years ago ( April 21, 2022 ) - A Sarmat Strategic Missile

Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened nuclear war with the United States - flexing his muscles over the Ukraine tensions. Here is what he recently said - according to " the West is risking nuclear war if it sends troops to Ukraine . In his State of the Union address, he claimed that NATO and the US are preparing to "strike Russian territory"

The range of this missile 

Pretty scary about the range of this missile -"...a range of 6,200 to 11,180 miles." Listed below are the 14 locations in the US that Russia would likely target in a nuclear war:

1) The Pentagon - Arlington, Virginia

2) Naval Station Norfolk - Norfolk, Virginia
