Is he explaining why he's getting filthy rich while his compatriots are suffering?

Putin is strong supporter of NATO. It´s simply NATO+Russia against China. This is long term Russia national interest.

How about Ling Wancheng? He apparently gave some good information about your nukes, including launching procedures.

Ling Wancheng

The brother of Ling Jihua.

So a relative of a top Chinese leader knows the nukes number, fooling CIA.

In 40 or so years high-energy beam anti-missile defences will render most of nuclear missiles useless. Problem was always that there isn't enough time for interceptor missiles to reach the target missile. Interceptors are simply too slow. But lasers... if it can track it, it can hit it. Currently though the range on lasers is **** - beam loses energy in atmosphere quite quickly. But it's still fast enough to intercept any possible missile - so it would be a game changer. Even if range was limited.
The day will come when nuclear missiles are worthless. Just wait.

Laser energy is thermal energy when applied to a mass. The warheads survive reentry temps of over 11,000 degrees C. No laser is destroying a reentry vehicle. Sorry. They are fine for thin skin aircraft and boost phase missiles which have very thin skins but the warhead buses are impervious to any laser ever imagined. Lasers wont change jack.

The laser doesn't need to hit the heat shield, it can be pointed to the much cooler body.
I'm no expert on the subject but if the heat shield is working at 80% capacity the laser could very well bring it over the 100% threshold just by the added heat. It doesn't mean the laser on itself can defeat the heat shield but the combined heat of reentry + laser could.

Lasers top out around around 2000 degrees right now. These buses handle temps almost 6x higher. It's not even close. And basically the whole renentry bus is heat shield since it's spiraling semi out of control to make it look like junk to confuse air defense radars. When lasers get better they'll just add more heat shielding too. It's simple enough.
