Former US Defense Secretary Bill Perry: "far from continuing nuclear disarmament ... we are starting a new nuclear arms race."
The horror and reactions to the Paris massacre have overshadowed a troubling new twist in the U.S.-Russian rivalry that could prove even more terrifying. Russian state media recently "accidentally" revealed plans for a bizarre new nuclear torpedo.
More of an underwater drone, it is designed to swim 6,000 miles -- enough to span the oceans underwater just as long-range missiles do in the air.

It would detonate a huge warhead, a hydrogen bomb equal to a million tons of TNT or more but "salted" with special metals to vastly increase the amount of radiation it would pour into a U.S. port city.

The U.S. is rearming as well.
First up, the U.S. will deploy almost 200 new nuclear bombs in Europe.
The U.S. Navy is developing 12 new submarines to prowl the world's oceans, carrying over 1,000 warheads on missiles that can hit any spot on earth.
The U.S. Air Force is developing a new strategic bomber and wants 1,000 new cruise missiles to go with them, plus a new fleet of almost 650 intercontinental ballistic missiles.
