Russia's claim to have developed new strategic weapons impervious to Western defenses seems unlikely to change the balance of global power. Russian nuclear missiles already have the ability to annihilate the United States, and U.S. defense strategy is based mainly on the deterrent threat of massive nuclear retaliation, not on an impenetrable shield against Russian missiles.The Trump administration has vowed to expand U.S. nuclear strength while criticizing Russia's buildup.The Pentagon has not publicly talked about the nuclear-powered cruise missile mentioned by Putin.Pentagon spokeswoman Dana W.
