Russian nuclear reactor explosion shrouded in mystery


MELISSA? MELISSA: THANK YOU FOR THAT, JENNIFER. JOINING TO US GET HIS TAKE ON ALL OF THIS IS RETIRED ARMY GENERAL JACK KEANE. HE IS A FOX NEWS SENIOR STRATEGIC ANALYST. GENERAL, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS EXPLOSION?>>WELL, THE RUSSIANS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR HAVING BELOW STANDARDS IN TERMS OF SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE. AND THEY CLEARLY HAVE GREAT SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, AND THEY’VE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO DEVELOP ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS, AND THAT’S CLEARLY WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO HERE, BUT THEY’VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS SYSTEM IN THE PAST, AND FOR OUR VIEWERS TO UNDERSTAND, IF YOU CAN PUT A SMALL NUCLEAR REACTOR IN A CRUISE MISSILE, THEN YOU HAVE ACTUALLY TAKEN AWAY THE RESTRICTION OF RANGE, AND IT CAN CIRCUMNAVIGATE ANY PLACE ON THE GLOBE, AND IT PROVIDES A HUGE ADVANTAGE TO SOMEBODY WHO OWNS THAT WEAPONS SYSTEM. SO THAT’S WHAT IS AT STAKE HERE. MOST OF OUR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS ARE QUITE SKEPTICAL ABOUT THE ABILITY TO ACHIEVE THIS KIND OF NEW TECHNOLOGY BREAKTHROUGH. MELISSA: YEAH, I MEAN, THEY PUT OUT A VIDEO EARLIER THAT WE LATER DETERMINED WAS DOCTORED SAYING THEY HAD THIS TECHNOLOGY, AND AT THE TIME, YOU KNOW, FOLKS WERE SKEPTICAL. WHAT DOES THIS EXPLOSION TELL YOU ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THEY EVER HAD THAT WEAPONS CAPABILITY OR, YOU KNOW, WHAT DOES IT MEAN IN THAT SENSE?>>WELL, THEY NEVER HAD THE CAPABILITY. THAT WAS A COMPUTER-GENERATED VIDEO, HAVING NOTHING TO DO WITH ACTUAL REALITY, AND IT WAS ASPIRATIONAL TO BE SURE, AND IT WAS DONE IN CONCERT WITH PUTIN’S STATE OF THE UNION, AND INTERESTING ENOUGH, AS THIS MISSILE WAS CIRCUMNAVIGATING PART OF THE GLOBE, IT FOUND ITSELF INTO FLORIDA AS ITS ULTIMATE DESTINATION. THERE’S A LOT OF HUBRIS SURROUNDING ALL OF THAT. I THINK PUTIN CLEARLY OVERSELLING THE TECHNOLOGY THAT IS STILL IN ITS ASPIRATIONAL STAGES. MELISSA: A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK WHEN THEY HEAR OF THIS ACCIDENT. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE FALLOUT OF THIS?>>THEY HAVE HAD PROBLEMS BEFORE. RECENTLY ONE OF THE MUNITIONS PLANT BLEW UP. THEY LOST ONE PERSON, 14, 15 OTHERS EVACUATED. THIS WAS A WEEK OR SO AGO AND 16,000 PEOPLE WERE EVACUATED AND THEN LAST MONTH, THEY HAD A FIRE ON A NUCLEAR-POWERED SUBMARINE AND 14 SAILORS WERE KILLED. BACK IN 2000, WE KNOW THEY LOST NUCLEAR POWER TO AN UNDERWATER EXPLOSION AND THE ENTIRE CREW HAS PERISHED. THEY HAVE ISSUES. AS YOU MENTIONED, THERE ARE NOTABLE ONES. THEY DON’T ABIDE BY INTERNATIONAL SAFETY STANDARDS. THE UNITED STATES SETS THE STANDARD WHEN IT COMES TO NUCLEAR POWER SAFETY STANDARDS. MELISSA: CAN I ASK YOU REAL QUICK BEFORE WE RUN OUT OF TIME. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE PROTESTS THAT WE’RE SEEING THAT ARE GOING ON IN RUSSIA? YOU KNOW, DOES PUTIN HAVE THE IRON GRIP THAT WE THINK HE DOES? WE’RE SHOWING SOME VIDEO OF IT RIGHT HERE NOW. HE CELEBRATED 20 YEARS IN POWER LAST WEEK. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE PROTESTS? BIG DEAL OR NOT A BIG DEAL?>>I THINK IT IS A VERY BIG DEAL. OBVIOUSLY PUTIN IS AN AUTHORITARIAN. HE RUNS A REPRESSIVE REGIME. HE CONDUCTS A MASSIVE INFORMATION CAMPAIGN AGAINST HIS OWN PEOPLE, TRYING TO MAKE — APPEAR THAT LIFE IS BETTER THAN WHAT IT IS, BLAMING THE UNITED STATES FOR EVERY PROBLEM THAT THEY HAVE, AND HERE WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE UPSET ABOUT IS HE’S DENYING OPPOSITION POLITICIANS THE RIGHT TO RUN FOR THE CITY COUNCIL IN MOSCOW. AS HE HAS DONE IN OTHER LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS. THERE’S BEEN PROTESTS ALSO IN OTHER CITIES IN SUPPORT OF THIS, AND THIS IS THE FIFTH PROTEST THAT’S TAKEN PLACE IN MOSCOW. WHAT THEY HAVE DONE, AND WE DON’T HAVE A LOT OF VIDEO ON IT, IS THEY HAVE VICIOUSLY BEAT BACK THESE PROTESTS. THEY HAVE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF POLICE IN MASS WITH BATONS BEATING BACK THESE PROTESTERS. THEY’RE ALSO GOING INTO THEIR HOMES AND ARRESTING THEM. THEY’VE GOT HUNDREDS OF THEM IN THE JAILHOUSES, AND THEYRE GAVING THEM IN SOME CASES EIGHT-YEAR SENTENCES FOR CONDUCTING — GIVING THEM IN SOME CASES EIGHT-YEAR SENTENCES FOR CONDUCTING WHATEVER WHO HAS OBSERVED IT HAS SAID IT’S BEEN A PEACEFUL CIVIL PROTEST ON THE PART OF THE DEMONSTRATORS. MELISSA: WOW, SOMETHING TO WATCH FOR SURE.

  1. They don't believe in safety procedures or what their even there for..!! I think as Americans give them to much credit..!!

  2. Not even close let’s stop the scumbags from trying to lie to us / these people are paid by the scumbags that want total control of the earth and will not stop at anything to do it know the truth and I bet we all can live in peace

  3. Al Jazeera TV to the right after the explosion clouds move right then left!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  4. Fox News, I understand you want a bag on Putin but we as Americans should be concerned about whether innocent civilians are going to be affected by this in Russia and worried about their safety. The Russian citizens aren't the American people's enemies.

  5. The protests that are going on in Russia are sponsored by NED. I'm surprised these news anchors still read from a prompter and never do any research.

  6. Ok but what about the United States withdrawing from the nuclear treaty! This is why it's going out of hand

  7. It's not a break through you moron it's just plain stupid to think you can say such a weapon is a conventional weapon when it's payload will include nuclear radiation and a small nuclear explosion from the nuclear engines fuel … Tell the truth about the nuclear powered anti-gravity technology and how dangerous it can be 😲 😎 Tell the TRUTH πŸ¦…

  8. WHAT ABOUT NUCLEAR WARHEAD MISTAKENLY DROPED AT ONE STATE BUT LUCKILY DEFUSED WAY BACK HISTORY OF USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
    DISASTERS CAN HAPPENS IF MENTALLY SICK NATIONS KEEP PRODUCING NUCLEAR BOMBS LIKE ISRAEL AND AMERICA 🀫

  9. the reactor was made from waste alloy of uranium with plutonium (Russians have a lot of this) – take popcorn is just the beginning

  10. I'm done with FOX , Anti -Trump coverage most of the time . i Will always Stand with TRUMP ,and i will always oppose those who oppose Trump . Thank GOD for Donald J. Trump , "Darkness to LIGHT " i Pray everyday for GOD Our FATHER to Bless and Protect ALL who Calls on his name . Grace ,Love And Mercy to you ALL , WWG1WGA

  11. We have much in common with the Russian people, but not their leaders. What if these explosions are the beginning of a rebellion?

  12. Well Conrad, I'll show you one time how to push red button, afterwards your on your own. Oops! CAm I bad". πŸŒ…

  13. Mediocre propaganda. If this is the best FOX can do to get an "expert" don't bother me again. I don't need imbecilic time wasters. The media chick doesn't impress me either!

  14. Nuclear reactor explosion? You morons, this was a miniature reactor being tested powering a military rocket. Russia has been running nuclear power reactors (including RBMK-1000) since the early 60s with no recorded accidents. Lay off the Chernobyl wagon story, it was a combination of ignorance and incompetence from which the whole scientific community has learned.

  15. Wow… another nuclear reactor going up in smoke…how many more will it take until the face of the planet can no longer harbor life? Depressing…

  16. really funny by some of you kooks to mock other nations tragedy- we had our three mile Island – you idiots of hate should be praying for the safety and well being of the Russian people and those effected in Finland and Norway – tjis is a tragedy- you people have violent occultic and evil hearts – Russians are just as precious as Americans in Gods holy eyes- sadly many of you have seared consciences and will be lost forever- try love and prayer fools

  17. CNN reported that the Russians where behind the explosion and is asking Nadler to investigate if Trump colluded with Putin to poison his own people with radiation. A constitutional crisis … lol

  18. The old saying, 'like a spark to dynamite' has officially been replaced with, 'like a Russian to a nuclear reactor'.
