Based off of recent speeches, that Russian President Vladimir Putin might use tactical nuclear weapons in the war in Ukraine is not a new possibility. The Biden Administration has been cautiously dismissive of Putin’s threats… until Thursday.
Speaking before a small collection of donors in New York City – Biden warned “We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis.”
Military strategists and top members of the Biden Administration have said if Putin were to utilize tactical nukes, the US would not in turn respond with nuclear weapons. Targeting instead Russian military installations using conventional weapons. All in the name of avoiding nuclear escalation.
Yet, at this same event, Biden seemed to contradict this line of reasoning “I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily (use) a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon.”
Given the seriousness of a worldwide “armageddon” the question then becomes – why isn’t this top news from the White House? Why did Biden choose to share this state of dire affairs with only an exclusive collection of donors and not the American people at large?
Either the world is truly on the brink of a nuclear showdown and our government chooses not to panic the public with such fears or it is in fact a last ditch, desperate midterm ploy to resuscitate a flailing DNC donor base.
The fear of nuclear showdown however is grounded in three alarming events from this week alone:
1) Wednesday, military trains normally used to transport nuclear material were spotted headed for the Ukrainian border.
2) Nato this week warned the US and member nations that Russia’s nuclear submarine, Belgorod – the largest submarine in the world carrying “doomsday nukes” left its base in the Arctic Circle and is on the move.
3) Russian troops are being moved out of recently annexed portions of Ukraine in what appears to be retreat. Media and Ukrainian officials have praised this as evidence Russia is losing the war. However, once Russian troops are cleared of the region, Putin’s decision to tactically nuke these areas will be made significantly easier.
In addition to these points, the US government on Wednesday quietly purchased $290 Million worth of the nuclear radiation emergency drug NPlate. Amgen sells the drug for almost $1200 per dose.
Following Biden’s “Armageddon” statements, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted there was no new intelligence behind Biden’s use of the term.
