Putin threatens to destroy the world if nukes are fired at Russia  

In a TV documentary, Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to annihilate the world with nuclear missiles if nukes were fired at Russia because, in his own words, “why do we need a world if Russia ceases to exist?”

Scary!

But for the time being, at least, the threat of mutually assured destruction should deter any country from starting a nuclear war.

We hope!
