State TV says Russia could turn US to 'radioactive ash'
AFP ^ | 3/16/2014 | Stuart Williams

Posted on 03/16/2014 3:09:27 PM PDT by markomalley

A leading anchor on Russian state television on Sunday described Russia as the only country capable of turning the United States into "radioactive ash", in an incendiary comment at the height of tensions over the Crimea referendum.

"Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash," anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television.

Kiselyov made the comment to support his argument that the United States and President Barack Obama were living in fear of Russia led by President Vladimir Putin amid the Ukraine crisis. His programme was broadcast as the first exit polls were being published showing an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voting to leave Ukraine and join Russia.

He stood in his studio in front of a gigantic image of a mushroom cloud produced after a nuclear attack, with the words "into radioactive ash".

"Americans themselves consider Putin to be a stronger leader than Obama," he added, pointing to opinion polls which then popped up on the screen.

As long as the Obungler is in office, the Ruskies could make good on that threat, with his blessing. Nothing would be done about it.

Turns out that reset button Hillary pressed was a reset of the Cold War to ‘On’.

Hey, look...an actual accomplishment for her!

Every time he is out of the country or in Hawaii, I have concerns that Something Bad could happen, and he would just sit back and say how sad it is.

Factually inaccurate. China could too. And at least as far as major cities go, France, Britain and UK could do a decent job as well.

Just saw a poll that says MOST Americans believe Hillary to be honest, compassionate, believable and would be a good leader. Man, this country is in trouble! More from the voters than Russia or muslims.

You’re right. Under Obama we are sitting ducks. Russia and the rest of the world have absoluitely no fear or respect for him. All they see is a big green light to do whatever they want at our expense.

The country is going to pay a horrific price for electing this effete clown.

Hell, all they’d have to do is hit the Federal Reserve and Wall Street and our GDP would probably drop by 70%. Throw in DC/Northern VA, and they’d get another 20%, taking the total number to 90%.

Yes, I believe it is over. When she said what difference at this point does it make, she got the sympathy vote, cuz those wascally wepublicans were just harassing her. All the evils that wench has done, is a resume enhancer for her. There was another Freeper, can't remember his name, who said he did not think there would ever be another Republican president is his lifetime. I do not know, but he might be onto something, with all the parasites and minorities voting rat, it might be over for a long time. I hope I am wrong, but I am not confident about it.

Stronger? Yes. But that doesn't take much. More cunning? Yes.

Neither is a leader I would really wish for, but there is something to be said about having a worthy opponent.
