(OPINION) The Russians continue to threaten us with nuclear annihilation. Why are so few people in the western world alarmed by this? I think it is because our leaders are assuring everyone that the Russians are all talk and that the odds of a nuclear war actually happening are extremely low. Meanwhile, both sides just continue to take steps to escalate the war in Ukraine.
We are engaged in an extremely bizarre game of “nuclear chicken”, and both sides truly believe that the other side will blink first. And so we continue to creep closer and closer to a cataclysmic nuclear conflict, and once the missiles start flying there will be no turning back.
I simply do not understand why our leaders are not taking Russian threats more seriously. The Russians warned that they would take military action in Ukraine if an agreement to avoid war could not be reached, and that is precisely what happened.
And now the Russians are repeatedly threatening us with nuclear war. In fact, Dmitry Medvedev just warned that if the U.S. does not back down our “land will be on fire and the concrete will melt”…
If the West continues its “unrestrained pumping of the Kiev regime with the most dangerous types of weapons,” Russia’s military campaign will move to the next level, where “visible boundaries and potential predictability of actions by the parties to the conflict” will be erased and the conflict will take on a life of its own, as wars always do, Medvedev argued.
“And then the Western nations will not be able to sit in their clean homes, laughing at how they carefully weaken Russia by proxy. Everything will be on fire around them. Their people will harvest their grief in full. The land will be on fire and the concrete will melt,” Medvedev wrote, before citing a Bible verse from Revelations 9:18.
In case you are wondering, this is what Revelation 9:18 says… A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues—by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which came out of their mouths. Medvedev also addressed the fact that U.S. politicians don’t seem to be taking Russian threats very seriously…
“Yet still the narrow-minded politicians and their stupid think tanks, thoughtfully twirling a glass of wine in their hands, talk about how they can deal with us without entering into a direct war. Dull idiots with a classical education,” Medvedev wrote.
When I read that statement, I immediately thought of National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. He is one of the chief warmongers in the Biden administration, but most Americans don’t even know who he is.
Personally, I am shocked that someone like Sullivan can even get a job in Washington, but at this point he is one of the key architects of our foreign policy. There are times when Sullivan makes John Bolton look like a radical anti-war peace activist in comparison, and Biden considers his advice to be highly valuable.
That is quite frightening, because if Sullivan has his way we are likely to end up in a nuclear war with Russia. At this point, the Russians do not believe that they are fighting a war with just Ukraine. All over Russian television, there is talk about the vast numbers of “British and American soldiers” that are now on the front lines of the conflict… READ MORE
