Russian leaders are "delusional" to think a new class of high-tech nuclear weapons Russian President Vladimir Putin unveiled last week are necessary or enhance Russia's security, and the decision to build them is "insane," according to a space-shuttle operations engineer for over two decades who literally wrote the book on U.S. space-based warfare.

James Oberg, author of the seminal volume "Space Power Theory" written for the U.S. Space Command before it was integrated into the U.S. Strategic Command in 2002, tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview the billions of rubles Putin has squandered on developing the new weapons actually represent "a windfall for the United States."
