Skip to comments.State TV says Russia could turn US to 'radioactive ash'
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.

Boy, I sure am glad that we have The Won with immediate access to the football. (/sarc)
Yeah...I’m sure when he’s with his boyfriend Reggie nothing can disturb him.
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.
In before the Hillary “what difference does it make” pictures.
like we didn’t know..start
Turns out that reset button Hillary pressed was a reset of the Cold War to ‘On’.
Hey, look...an actual accomplishment for her!
And if 0bama survives he’ll immediately send Kerry, if he survives, to tell Putin how sorry he was to upset him.
Putin must genuinely dread 2016 when obumbingidiot leaves office.
How about this one instead:
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.
Don’t trouble yourself, Russia. God will take care of that soon enough.
They are saying this meanwhile we have a missing 777 that is capable of carrying a crap load of nukes..gee, makes ya think
And rather than saying Britain AND UK, I clearly intended to substitute Israel.
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.
Like shitlery will be a better _resident?
The sheep elected this tumor twice. They’re stupid enough to vote in the beast. 1st woman and all is what matters.
NEVER underestimate the stupidity of Amerikans.
You see? It’s just that sort of attitude that will never win you guys a Nobel Peace Prize.
Uh, which poll was this?
Polls can be rigged too.
yes, yes, yes...just how is that nuclear disarmament thing going today?
If anything, in the long run we will owe Putin a debt of gratitude for shaking awake the American people.
His initial response will be something along the lines of, “Uh, will this hurt my brackets?”
Maybe Casey Anthony can run for President, after all, she is a murderer too..she would probably win, leftists love baby killers
I think what Americans want to know right now is whether or not Obama’s golf game has improved these last five years.
Nothing would be done about it.
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.
I am not even sure he would say THAT. He might kick back and say, how sweet it is.
Not so sure he'll leave office. Internet handed over Sept. 2015, America handed over shortly thereafter.
I hope Putin doesn’t ask Obama to surrender.
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%.

I think you are right. A civil war may be the least of the bad things that might happen.
Remember when we were saying that about Slick Willie Clinton? "Damn, Hil'ry, they're on to us!"
Was FreeRepublic mentioned?
Ummm, true... but my dog's a stronger leader than Obama for me... Every now and then I'll follow my dog...
Hey, Ruskies: please start with D.C.
No, what Obama has been giving away will be hard fought to get back.
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.
To paraphrase PT Barnum:
No one ever lost a recent election by underestimating the intelligence of the American public.
And libs were saying it about Bush. But this is the first president I’ve truly believed would try it.
Now if you can, put hussein’s butt-boy Reggie Love as the bomb muslim boy is ridin’, and ya got it!
If “Obama” doesn’t already have the Order of Lenin, there is no justice.
Only two world leaders I think are good, Steven Harper and Bibi.
