Earlier this morning the Japanese Navy detected an unknown metal object at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Strong evidence suggests that this unknown object is a nuclear warhead, which rolled off the deck of the U.S.S. Ticonderoga in 1965. It took the US Navy 15 years to admit that the accident occurred about 80 miles off Japan’s Ryukyu Island chain, and not 500, as they first claimed.
In a short address to the public, Putin voiced his concerns about the newly discovered nuclear warhead. He warned about the instability of the unsecured bomb at the bottom of the ocean. “Fortunately, the bomb didn’t explode when it fell into the ocean. Unfortunately, that means that it still might detonate.”
Putin rightfully reminded the public that “The United States has a long and rich history of losing nuclear weapons.”. It is a well-known fact that the US has lost 6 nuclear warheads between 1950 and 1980 and added how we cannot be sure that the US truly lost only 6 bombs.
Finally, he praised the Japanese Navy for locating the bomb and said how he hopes that the bomb will be secured successfully.
The US’ lack of effort in locating the lost warhead sooner makes us believe that they fail to recognize the impending danger of radiation, not to mention the instability of unsecured warheads, which could explode at any moment.
Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are a clear proof that the US is willing to use their nuclear weapons, regardless of the consequences. Once again, US nuclear bombs keep endangering the lives not of some, but of humankind as a whole.
