"Well, we were going to fire off a test nuclear missile, but I guess we'll wait now since you decided to threaten the entire world with nuclear war.".  :D

Fine example of how ridiculous nukes actually are and why they should never have been invented in the first place!

U.S. delays ICBM test-launch in bid to de-escalate Russia nuclear tensions
Quote
WASHINGTON, March 2 (Reuters) - The U.S. military said on Wednesday it will postpone a scheduled test launch of a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile, in a bid to lower soaring tensions after Russia announced it was putting its nuclear forces on high alert.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's weekend announcement on the heightened alert posture fanned fears that Russia's invasion of Ukraine could lead to nuclear escalation, with some European officials seeing it as veiled threat to the West.

"Blackmail" is the wrong word. Blackmail refers to the victim having done something in the past that they want to keep secret, and the blackmailer threatening to publicize what they have done if the victim does not comply with the blackmailer's instructions.

What Putin is doing here does not involve skeletons in our closet at risk of exposure. This is straightforward hostage situation where Putin is pointing a gun at our heads and threatening to pull the trigger if we move against him.

The ridiculous thing is, NATO also has guns, so there is no technical reason why Russia should have an advantage over NATO. The problem is that NATO values Russian lives more than Russia values NATO lives, and Putin knows this. This is why Putin thinks he can get away with anything. In order to stop Putin, NATO must learn to view Russian lives the same way Hitler did.

U.S.: Russia’s Talk of Nuclear Escalation Irresponsible
Quote
State Department Spokesman Ned Price calls Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s warning about a nuclear conflict “deeply irresponsible.” Lavrov earlier accused NATO of “pouring oil on the fire” with its support for Ukraine, warning that the threat of a nuclear conflict “should not be underestimated.” Price spoke at a news briefing.

Quality people find it easy to change their position when proven wrong on a topic or situation, because ultimately truth and justice are more important to quality people than stroking their own egos. This is how you know most politicians are not quality people, especially Russian politicians!

Lavrov threatens the world with destruction, if it prevents Putin from annihilating Ukraine. Both him and Putin are dead serious. In my opinion, the international community should respond to these threats in a way that runs contrary to Putin’s expectations.

After launching its mad, irrational, and barbaric invasion of Ukraine, Russia has revealed that it’s no longer a credible, rational actor in the international arena. World leaders realize that Russian nuclear threats are best taken seriously, because the failure to do so would be prohibitively expensive. After all, the continued existence of human civilization is at stake. One person is currently openly threatening to destroy our civilization if his ludicrous demands are not met. This is nuclear terrorism on a grand scale – it’s not just some major city like New York that’s at stake, it’s all of humanity.

Giving in to the terrorist’s demands is out of the question, it would only embolden him to make further demands, and inspire copycats. Sooner or later, the world will have to call his bluff at one red line or another, risking a global nuclear war. The only difference is that the longer we appease the terrorist, the more powerful he becomes, and the weaker and more demoralized the rest of the world will be. Appeasement is not an option.

What’s left to do then? Any security service official can answer that: the only option available is to eliminate the terrorist, who is holding the whole planet hostage, trying to force us all to meet his political demands. Not unlike a hypothetical asteroid, hurtling to wards Earth, this is a global problem that demands a global solution.
...
China’s foreign ministry issued a rather harsh, by Chinese standards, statement: “No one wants WWIII. All sides must show restraint around the Ukrainian crisis and avoid escalating the conflict.” Beijing is signaling to Putin that Russia won’t receive financial, technological, or military aid from China. Not even sympathies. And without Chinese support, the proverbial Russian warship has but one course to follow.

He brainwashed his populace into expecting a triumph, but as it turns out, it will be Ukraine parading its troops across Moscow. The problem is that Putin has no other way out. Nuclear war is all he thinks about now. That’s his only perceived salvation from a humiliating military defeat in Ukraine.

Putin doesn’t know what to do next, so his finger is creeping towards the nuclear “button.” That’s why I’m certain that Chinese security service will soon join their Western counterparts in figuring out a way to neutralize the Russian dictator – if it hasn’t happened already. Everyone around the globe will be pooling their resources towards stopping Putin. After all, nuclear war must be averted.

U.S. FAILED security drill at nuclear missile base that simulated hostile takeover of launch silo because they couldn't regain control of captured weapon quickly enough

Not surprised:


I am worried what would happen if some rightists secessionists in states with nuclear launch sites get their hands on these weapons...
