Vladimir Putin was bragging to a group of children about Russian nuclear weapons. Of course he knows everything he says is watched by the West. I do not like to think of Russia as our enemy. I do not think Russia needs to be, but for many people, binary thinking is the easiest to understand and if one positions oneself opposite another, then simple understanding happens.
Russia is a great nation and culture, I wish she (and many American politicians) did not need an enemy to create national pride.
