Suddenly, in Russia....



The Russians now appear set to perhaps double the number of nuclear warheads that they have deployed. This seems unpossible  U.S and R.F warhead totals are limited to 1550 each by a treaty which has all the binding power of....


It gets worse. While the State Department disputes this, the article is reporting that...
Officials said that in addition to adding warheads to the new missiles, Russian officials have sought to prevent U.S. weapons inspectors from checking warheads as part of the 2010 treaty. 

Russia also enjoys a strong civil defense system and some years ago constructed 5000 blast/fallout shelters around Moscow alone. They've recently begun an inventory and inspection of them, you know, just because.  
Puchkov said on August 14 that his ministry has its "fixed attention" on making sure Russia's bomb shelters are "ready to use for their intended purposes."


Russia is also increasing its ties to China which, likewise, is greatly increasing its warhead numbers, and MIRVing its  missiles

While all that's going on, the U.S. is going in rather the opposite direction.
