A Very Dangerous Game

Dennis O'Brien

One gets the impression that the rest of the world has no concept of how dangerous the situation in Ukraine now is. Russia has made it very clear in the past that any aggressive military action aimed specifically at the territory of the Russian Federation will be met by a nuclear retaliation. The Russians don’t tend to make false threats. Despite this, the West, and in particular the United States under the umbrella of NATO is continuing to supply Ukraine with arms and war materials and is openly encouraging Ukraine to strike outside its borders — presumably such strikes would be against Russian targets inside Russia. This is madness. While Russia it seems was willing to put up with the West fighting a proxy war against it by using Ukraine, at what point does Russia decide that the West has gone beyond that point and is in fact effectively waging war against Russia directly?

America, led in theory by a sick and pathetic old man, but in reality controlled by hawkish and dangerously naive and corrupt players behind the scenes, is playing with fire. The Western governments, using their lackeys in Big Media to broadcast an overwhelming pro-Ukraine propaganda campaign, and with the Military-Indust rial Complex in cahoots, are displaying what could only be described as a reckless, amateur, and juvenile response to a conflict that should be between Ukraine and Russia only. They are playing Russian roulette with all the chambers loaded.

1 Nonsense. Russia did not specify nuclear retaliation. They did not even imply any such thing. They have a vast store of very deadly conventional weaponry (including hypersonic, against which there is essentially no defense) and they reminded us that they will bot be bluffed into not using it. The situation is exceedingly dangerous, but Russia did not make a specific nuclear threat.

2 You are correct Bill; Putin has never made a specific threat of using nukes. But he has made broad threats, and he will use nukes if backed into a corner and there is no other way out.

I would add he will probably use them tactically rather than launching all the birds - and see if we respond (which I suspect we will not.)

Putin may be paranoid, even a bit crazy, but he's no fool.

3 The "money part" of your comment, Tim, is of course "if backed into a corner." That's a dangerous thing to do to an enemy.

4 Timothy, please. I generally respect you, but how can you know that Putin will use nuclear weapons if you admit that he has never threatened to do so. Have you read his mind?

5 Of course I do not know for a fact Bill, but I have a pretty good idea. He's not a man to be deposed and killed (which is what it would require) without using all his options. He's ruthless.

Why wouldn't he use tactical nukes if he thought he faced disaster?

Again, I don't know exactly what is on his mind Bill, but we can make pretty good guesses based on his character and his history.

6 Exactly Dana; he must be given a way out. I fear the New World Order types don't want to give that to him.
