Russians Hold 50-Year Edge Over U.S. In Most Powerful Weapons

CDI Russia Weekly-#250
28 March 2003

"Now we have the strongest nuclear weapon. Americans are mostly scared, not
with Russia's new mobile strategic missile complexes Topol-M, but with the
old SS intercontinental ballistic missiles created in the Soviet era. These
are the silo-based missiles that Americans call Satan. Russia also holds
wonderful developments of new plasma, laser and molecular weapons; it will
take American scientists up to 50 years to develop such kind of weapons.
