Mutual Assured Destruction

Nikita Kruschev noted this: Maybe America can destroy Russia “many times” (by today’s standards), but Russia only needs to destroy America once –

“Yes, I know what Kennedy claims, and he’s quite right. But I’m not complaining… We’re satisfied to be able to finish off the United States first time round. Once is quite enough. What good does it do to annihilate a country twice? We’re not a bloodthirsty people.”

  • As quoted in Khrushchev Remembers: The Last Testament (1974)

We already know that Russia’s 69bil dollar army can rival the USA military at every level except the Navy. Can you imagine what the 215bil Chinese military can do? and what they can do together with Russia?
