The Russians have warned us over and over again that they will use nuclear weapons if they are forced into a direct war with western powers. So why are most western leaders not taking those threats seriously? Ukraine is not worth fighting a nuclear war over. Both sides would be wise to try to find a peaceful resolution while it is still possible to do so. But instead, we continue to see escalation after escalation. In particular, the Biden administration seems determined to see how close it can go without pushing things completely over the edge. This is very foolish, because the Russians are very serious about fighting a nuclear war if they are pushed too far.
This week, Newsweek is reporting that high school students in Russia will be trained what to do if a nuclear war breaks out “as part of the national curriculum”…
Russian high-school students will be trained how to protect themselves in a possible nuclear war as part of the national curriculum, a local publication has reported.
Students will learn about “the combat properties and damaging effects of weapons of mass destruction, as well as methods of protection against them.” It will be part of a subject being rolled out in high schools in Russia called “Fundamentals of Security and Defense of the Motherland,” newspaper Kommersant reported on Tuesday, citing a document from the Ministry of Education.
Russian officials, including former President Dmitry Medvedev, have warned on multiple occasions that a nuclear war could break out amid the conflict in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin said in September 2022 that Moscow was prepared to use nuclear weapons to defend its “territorial integrity” and the topic is regularly discussed on Russian state TV.
Here in the United States we rarely discuss the possibility of nuclear war, and any politician that suggested that we should train our students what to do if a nuclear war happens would be relentlessly mocked.
But over in Russia things are much different.
As I discuss in my latest book, the Russians have been feverishly preparing to fight a nuclear war, and such a scenario is discussed on Russian television all the time.
On Wednesday, the guy that could one day replace Vladimir Putin publicly warned that a war with NATO would result in an “apocalypse” and “the end to everything”…
NATO is a huge military bloc, the total population of the Alliance member states is about 1 billion people, and their combined military budget can get as high as $1,5 trillion.
So, because our military capabilities are thus incomparable, we will simply be left with no choice. The response will be asymmetrical. To defend our country’s territorial integrity, ballistic and cruise missiles carrying special warheads will be put to use. It is based on our military doctrine documents and is well known to all. And this is exactly that very Apocalypse. The end to everything.
This is why Western politicians must be telling the bitter truth to their voters, and stop taking them for brainless morons; to explain to them, what will really happen, and not to play the false mantra of getting ready for war against Russia over and over again.
Dmitry Medvedev keeps saying stuff like this over and over again.
Since the year 2000, he is the only person to serve as president of Russia other than Vladimir Putin.
And once Putin is gone, there is a very good chance that Medvedev will be the one to replace him.
If that turns out to be the case, we are going to be in so much trouble.
With Medvedev at the helm, the Russians would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if it became clear that a shooting war with the United States could not be avoided.
So you might want to pray for Putin’s health.
Yes, I am quite serious about that.
Because if Medvedev replaces Putin, the risk of nuclear war would increase dramatically.
Elsewhere, the war in the Middle East is rapidly approaching a point of no return.
Hezbollah has already attacked Israeli targets more than a thousand times, and the IDF says that it has hit Hezbollah targets approximately 3,000 times…
Israel’s military has issued a new assessment which estimates it has launched attacks on some 3,000 Hezbollah sites in Lebanon in Syria since war started after Oct.7. Military spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says that while Israel is nothing seeking a bigger war in Lebanon, it is “certainly ready” and that the defense forces (IDF) are ready to “attack immediately if provoked.”
Hezbollah has been hitting back on a daily basis too, with villages and communities on both sides of the border being impacted, and in some cases resulting in civilian casualties. When Israel hits targets in Syria, it tends to describe these as “Iran-linked”, which often means Hezbollah.
The good news is that an all-out war on the northern front has not erupted yet.
But that could soon change.
The Israelis are absolutely determined to get Hezbollah to move their forces north of the Litani River, and they are prepared to send troops into Lebanon if Hezbollah will not do that willingly…
Israel now says that time is running out for diplomacy as the two sides spiral toward bigger war. “Israel has said, though, that it’s prepared to open another front with a military attack on southern Lebanon if Hezbollah doesn’t move back to about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from the border, as per the terms of a long-standing United Nations resolution,” according to Bloomberg.
Once the IDF enters southern Lebanon, there will be no turning back.
It won’t happen tomorrow, but Israeli Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz is warning that time is running out…
Israel’s Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz met his French counterpart on Monday, warning him that “time [is] running out to find a diplomatic solution in Lebanon,” and indicating that his country was prepared to go to war if diplomacy fails.
The reason is that, since October 7, Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based group linked to Iran, has carried out hundreds of attacks on Israeli targets. Fearing an influx of militants that could potentially invade and conquer parts of the country, some 60,000 northern Israelis have opted to leave, seeking refuge in the center, away from the hostilities.
I am entirely convinced that the war in the Middle East will get really crazy at some point in 2024.
And that won’t be good news for anyone.
I also believe that the war in Ukraine will soon enter a dangerous new phase.
The Ukrainians are becoming increasingly desperate, and they will be looking for ways to drag the western powers into the conflict.
Let us hope that doesn’t happen any time soon, because a direct conflict with Russia could easily spark a nuclear apocalypse.
