Has Anyone Checked On Russia Lately? No? Because Apparently They’re Ready For Nuclear War

Russia, really? Don’t we have enough going on in the world right now? Do you have to choose NOW to go back to being crazy, pesky Russia?

Zvezda, a nationwide TV service run by the country‚Äôs Ministry of Defence, said last week, “Schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow.” I’m not political expert, but, I have a hard time believing that’s true. We have enough to worry about at the moment, let alone starting a war with the second most powerful nuclear nation in the world.

Russia has been clashing with the West recently over its policy in Syria, where Russia was accused of bombing civilians. The U.S. suspended negotiations with the country yesterday, after Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed a law suspending a Moscow-Washington agreement to dispose of weapons-grade plutonium on Monday.

I think I speak for the combined about 500 million people of both the US and Russia when I say that literally neither of our countries have time for any of this bullshit. We’ve got killer clowns on the loose over here. We can’t be distracting ourselves with a potentially world-ending nuclear war.
