Russian Submarines Launch Their Missiles

By

Russian submarines operating dangerously close to US waters launched two ICBMs over the weekend.

The two massive missiles hit dummy targets in eastern Siberia.

The exercise was designed to test new liquid and solid-fuel propulsion systems.

But also to provoke the Trump Administration.


Russia’s Defense Ministry claims that the weekend missile launch was a response to the US recently testing a ground-launched cruise missile, which Moscow called a violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).

The Trump White House reminded the Kremlin that it had already withdrawn from the INF over Russia’s failure to comply with the agreement.

Anyone want to start taking bets on how long it will take for these provocative tests to escalate to direct confrontation?
