Flirting with Armageddon


Friends, today I share with you an excellent article that suggests that the U.S. policy of escalation in Ukraine, which ignores Russian warnings that the use of nuclear weapons is on the table, risks putting Ukraine -- and us -- in a truly desperate situation.  Should Russia subject Ukraine to nuclear attacks, needless to say the Ukrainians have no good answer, and neither do we.  Before Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, we seemed to believe that Western bravado alone could deter them.  We were wrong.  Now, we seem to assume that we can send Ukraine as many weapons, and as much critical intel, as we please, because the Russians, if they sensed that they were on the verge of defeat on the conventional battlefield, would never dare to use weapons of mass destruction.  Oh really?  Do you trust Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schiff, Austin, and Blinken to make decisions this grave?  I sure don't.  Let's all take a deep breath, therefore, before we make a bad situation worse.
