Vladimir Putin calls for more weapons to stop America doing 'whatever it wants'

Russia needs more weapons to punch through Americas new missile defence shield, Vladimir Putin said yesterday in blunt remarks that will complicate efforts to cut the nuclear arsenals of the former Cold War rivals.
The Russian Prime Minister, reasserting himself as the countrys real ruler, said that Moscow should press ahead with a new generation of weapons to stop the Americans doing whatever they want.
To preserve the balance we must develop offensive weapons systems, not missile defence systems as the United States is doing, he said during a visit to the naval port of Vladivostok on the Pacific coast.
Until now, it had seemed that Washington and Moscow were edging towards a successor to the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (Start), despite failing to meet the original target of December 5.

Someone remind me: did we hit “reset” or “ctrl+alt+delete?”
Odumbo IS the weapon that is keeping America from doing whatever NEEDS to be done.
Give it a rest you assh*le.
Don't worry, some will pile on Dubya too because he tried to get Russian cooperation in the WOT and gave Putin the benefit of the doubt. Just wait, they'll be posting soon.
It’s not AMERICANS “doing whatever they want”, it’s OBAMA.
Obozo is taking us back to the cold war at an astounding rate.
“overcharge”. the button was labelled “overcharge”.
Yep. That’s how the pack treats its prey.
I like that... America is still king,,, cash and power is still king... but they wee it waning under Obamanana and thus want to take the opportunity to recharge themselves....
It will be their great leap!
Ehe end of the cold war has ended. Thanks to 0bama!
Obumbler is a narcissistic failure.
Predators can often sense weakness in their prey.
As long as we have Bozo Russia, nor any other country, has nothing to fear. Bozo wouldn’t start a war if some one nuked NYC(maybe Chicago, with all his buddies).
Looks like Puty wants to go from #2 to #1.....once we get rid of Obozo it ain't gonna happen !
Huh? What defense?
While Obama is promising to destroy our nuclear arsenal, Putin is promising to build his.
Yeah Obama—That’s really working for you pal.
I notice Ahmadinejhad is laughing at you too.
