Russia’s new secret weapon could unleash massive tidal waves against U.S. coastal cities

As the world focused on the Middle East, and President Obama strove to retreat from the global stage in order to focus more on America’s “fundamental transformation” over the past seven years, Russia emerged from its post-Soviet funk and began assuming once more its former role as chief antagonist of the U.S. and global bad boy.

One of the areas where Russia has dramatically improved its capabilities is in its robust effort to modernize its military. For a decade or more following the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s, Moscow’s military languished in disarray and disrepair. Warships remained at their docks, rusting. Warplanes remained on their airbases, many of them lapsing into such shabbiness they were no longer airworthy. Conscripted soldiers were disillusioned and often underpaid. On the world stage, no one gave a “beaten” and broke Russia a second thought.

But then the 2000s arrived and with them ex-KGB operative Vladimir Putin, whose nationalism has been infectious during his long tenure alternating as the country’s prime minister and president. Fed in large part by vigorous oil sales (and profits), Putin over the last decade has led an amazing revival of the Russian military. That has included the development and fielding of advanced new weapons platforms like the S-300 and S-400 air defense systems, the T-14 heavy tank and serious technological upgrades to Moscow’s nuclear arsenal.

And speaking of that, one new atomic weapon is drawing the attention of the U.S. intelligence and defense communities for its dangerous and devastating potential – like, possessing the ability to stealthily approach U.S. coastal cities and obliterate them, leaving a radiation-filled debris field for hundreds of miles that would make the Fukushima disaster in Japan look tame by comparison.

A fearful city killer
