Nuclear Blundering

Putin warned NATO that threatening the integrity of Russian territory will result in a nuclear response. He accused NATO of nuclear saber rattling, which the linked article is denying.

Biden responded to Putin’s statement by antagonizing Russia even further. “No one threatened Russia and no one other than Russia sought conflict,” Biden said. Except that is false.

Biden alluded to the US using nuclear weapons before when he advised Putin not to use nukes now, saying: “Don’t. You will change the face of war unlike anything since World War II.”

Not that the F35 is certified to carry nuclear weapons, the US raised Russian concerns by basing B61 bombs in the UK, joining the 150 B61s already in the European theater.

The MSM is excited at the prospect as Biden claims Putin is bluffing.

Emperor Poopypants is going to blunder us into a nuclear exchange over a nation that the US has no national interest in, beyond the grift enjoyed by government officials.

Where are all the anti-war protesters from the Bush II regime? Jeez, at one time the Dems/Libs/Pussy Hat brigade were against foreign war.

At some point someone somewhere needs to act like an adult and get rid of Biden and the laughing hyena and put a serious president in office. Before the big ka-boom happens.

Bidet isn’t the problem. The rest of the parasites in fed.gov are. You know, the ones that he refers to when he says “I’m not allowed to …”, and the rest that go along to get along (looking at you Republic(a/u)nts).

Enjoy your blog very much. This post is spot on, reminds me of the lead up to World War I. A bunch of nitwits leading us to Armageddon.

nation that the US has no national interest in, beyond the grift enjoyed by government officials.
Well, the kickbacks from the billions we sent aaand let’s not forget about the evidence of the Biden’s crimes they have. We are being blackmailed I would Bet, shit, I don’t gamble, but this looks like a sure thing. I’d bet a Lot that Biden is shipping our money to Ukraine to protect himself and Hunter.

As you noted, the US has no interest in Ukraine, other than using it as a buffer against Russia. So if Putin sets off a nuke in Ukraine, is our prez going to respond in kind? I hope not. And in that situation, I hope that every other nuclear power in the region would take their damned hand off the button and chill for a minute. We don’t need other countries popping off in some chain reaction trying to take each other out.

Even if Putin uses a nuke, the rest of the world could handle the response conventionally, but the risk there is, if he uses a nuke in Ukraine, he’s likely willing to use a nuke elsewhere, regardless of doctrine. Agree that the dementia patient and the word salad hyena are not up to the task.

The problem with Putin’s warning is, “Russian territory” means “any territory which Putin thinks ought to belong to Russia”.

If Putin and his rampaging military dumbfucks would go back to the territory Russia actually possessed and diplomatically agreed to as of December 31, 1990, he’d have no problem whatsoever with the rest of the world.

Funny how nobody mentions that little problem.

If Putin wants to start lobbing nukes over lands that aren’t his, and do not wish to be, he’s going to bring his war to half the world, and Russia will be a synonym for passenger pigeons and dodo birds, as well as Carthaginians.

His ball. He can fold his tent, or he can fold his country.

I’m still betting this is where he gets retired involuntarily, but time will tell how sane his generals are.

And if after having their language outlawed, and being bombed for eight years, these already “breakaway republics” think they ought to belong to Russia again? Do they have a say? They voted for that eight years ago, and Russia said no. They’re voting again. You think that vote is rigged? Was it rigged eight years ago, and if so why did Russia say no?

As you say: Time will tell.

If they missed Russia so much, it’s just across the border.

And you left out that they were bombed by Ukraine because they were infiltrated wholesale by Russian troops in civilian clothes since 2014.
Just because Putin slowrolled it, doesn’t make that not Operation Canned Goods .

Russia has been annexing Ukraine piecemeal since 2014, and screwing with their internal politics since 1990.

Whatever his other faults, Zelensky is certainly no Russian puppet.
Unlike every predecessor he had.
Faced with that reality, Moscow invaded.

If Russia wants to first withdraw to the 1990 borders, including giving Crimea back, and then wait a year to let all the refugees in Poland and Slovakian camps return, then yes, hold a vote.

But a Russian-run referendum, in wartime, held at gunpoint by occupation forces in most cases, when half the population has fled, a third hates Putin to the marrow, and the rest are dead and buried in Russian mass graves, and you think Putin isn’t going to miraculously win with 137% of the vote???

The very notion is farcical.

You should get out and about more.

To be fair, Zelinsky is in power because the US put him there. The US has a long history of meddling in the internal affairs of other countries, and it frequently seems to come back around and bite us in the ass.

You make some fair points, and some not so fair. I accept that your views appear self-consistent. That is enough for me.

Should the US give guantanamo back to Cuba?
Should Russia keep it’s only warm water port in Crimea?

That’s not exactly an ‘anti war’ slogan. Resistance to the John Gill propped up in charge of the current domestic tyranny is unorganized and currently futile.
