    And he is right, but we don't show them off till we have to use them in war, and that is something few in the world understand.

    Trump: US has better weapons than the 'failed' Russian 'Skyfall' missile

    The suspected nuclear explosion occurred Thursday off the coast of Russia's Nenoska Missile Test Site, an installation suspected of developing Russia's next generation of advanced missiles. Seven people were reportedly killed.


    "The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia," Trump tweeted Monday. "We have similar, though more advanced, technology. The Russian 'Skyfall' explosion has people worried about the air around the facility and far beyond. Not good!"

    Russian media reported radiation briefly spiked to 200 times the normal rate, according to the New York Times, but these reports were later scrubbed from the websites of Severodvinsk, a small city located 25 miles away from the explosion in Russia's Archangel province. Fears over radiation poisoning caused a run on iodine by local residents, which can protect the thyroid gland from absorbing radiation.

    Experts and intelligence officials believe the explosion was the result of a botched test of a nuclear-powered cruise missile known by NATO as the SSC-X-9 Skyfall.
    We could completely destroy Russia and they wouldn't even know it was us that did it.

    The United States has acquired technology that level entire cities and it will be completely masked with natural events. And we have had this technology for quite some time.

    We just don't want to use it and kill millions of potential customers, lol.

    If we have such great weapons, why haven't we won a war since WWII?

    US has won plenty of wars, you're probably conflating military objectives with political objectives.

    But, I hope we are NOT developing nuclear powered cruise missiles. That sounds like a very bad idea.


    I can see what Russia would go for it, but it is not for US.

    There is no doubt that the U.S. has the best technology but Obama's policies still force Americans to hitch a ride on Russian junk if they want to get to the Space Station.

    True, but our failure in space policy goes back much further than that, and includes republican presidents.
