Russia has responded to the USA withdrawing an arms treaty by announcing it has plans to build more missiles. News that the USA will exit the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty (INFT) and Russia's response raised concerns a new arms race. Moscow immediately said it would end its own involvement the arms limitation treaty. addition, Russian media stated that Russia's military would develop a "100 megaton nuclear doomsday device" response to the USA pulling of the treaty. The INFT was signed 1987. It was an attempt to limit the number missiles that were capable hitting many European capitals. It banned both countries using short- and medium-range missiles.
The media have written extensively a new "super-missile". This is an unstoppable, undersea, 100-megaton nuclear warhead. Experts say it is so fast it can evade all current missile defense systems. They also say it is powerful enough to cause catastrophic devastation, such as creating 100-meter tsunami waves and enough radiation to wipe life a thousand kilometers. One Russian newspaper wrote: "One the 100 megaton nuclear warheads will sit the US coast. Any US attack Russia would be a suicidal misadventure." However, the paper omitted to mention the concept M.A.D. - Mutually Assured Destruction. This scary scenario sees both countries wiping each other .
