Colonel: Russia Planted Nuclear Bombs In Ocean That Could Unleash Monster Tsunami On U.S. Coast

 

If worrying about terrorism or an attack by North Korea wasn’t bad enough, we can’t forget that Russia has the largest nuclear arsenal of any country in the world with 7,000 nuclear warheads. And apparently they won’t all reign down a fiery hell from the skies, some will send a massive death-dealing tsunami at the United States. This isn’t a fun way to start the day.

A retired Russian colonel claims that Moscow has planted nuclear bombs in the Atlantic Ocean that would unleash a monster tsunami on the east coast of America if detonated. In an interview with Russian paper Komsomolskaya Pravda, Viktor Baranetz said that Russia has been “quietly seeding the U.S. shoreline with nuclear mole missiles.”

The Russian military expert said the bombs “dig themselves in and sleep until they are given the command.”

The detonation of these nuclear warheads would cause a lethal tsunami that would flood the east shoreline and cause massive casualties especially in coastal cities such as New York, Miami, and Charleston.

The former colonel said the idea was hatched as a way for Russia to compete with America, which has a far larger military budget.

“The U.S. is the permanent ‘world champion’ in the size of its military budget – almost $600 billion, which is 10 times more than Russia’s,” he explained. “Russia will not compete with the U.S. in defense expenditure. We are in a different weight class.”

A Russian government spokesman dismissed Baranetz’s claims as “strange” and that the report should “not be taken seriously.”

Russia did “accidentally leak” plans for a nuclear torpedo two years ago, so this isn’t an outlandish proposition.

Baranetz abruptly ended the conversation, probably realizing that he could mysteriously die (Maybe from being poisoned or curiously get shot in the back of the head) for not keeping his mouth shut.

“Oh, it seems I’ve said too much. I should hold my tongue. In short, we have something to provide an ‘asymmetrical’ (and cheaper) response to the Americans.”

 

 

 

 

That was just one 21-kiloton bomb. Russia has the Soviet RDS-220 hydrogen bomb AKA the Tsar Bomba, the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated armed with a 550 kiloton warhead, 1,570 times the combined energy of the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. So if a couple of those behemoths were detonated off the U.S. coast it would certainly cause some major splish splashes.

Makes sense. If I were in charge of Russian military strategy I’d have a few of these stashed away.

If it was published in a Russian newspaper the guy had approval. You don’t get published if you’re off-message. So what are they saying to you guys?

It is a scary message. As you said LordJim, i seriously doubt anything that gets published in Russian News would be not cleared by the government prior to publishing. There is just much control over everything. That leads me to believe it is military propaganda at work and most likely it is based in truth. it is a big wake up call at the least.

wonder how they signal them to detonate,subs have to float a wire to the surface to receive radio signals

I don’t believe a word that comes out of the murican military or murican government when it comes to discussing other country’s weapons, tactics, motives etc.

Tsar Bomba was 50,000 kilotons. not 550. It was also 2500 times the combined payload of Japan’s two drops, if estimated at 20 kt, each.

Compare that to a moderate to strong tsunami, which would need in the range of 250,000 to 500,000 kilotons. While the explosion would be pants-shitting in magnitude, it would not result in a massively devastating tsunami. At the range required for the wave energy to make landfall before dissipating, the bomb(s) would impart ancillary damage effects in addition to hydraulic thrust load of seawater.

Basically, the Colonel is full of bor-scht.
