Well, Putin sure doesn’t appear frightened by Biden’s bluster, no matter how “tough” the media tries to make him appear.
On the contrary, he has apparently decided to ingratiate himself even more deeply in the former Soviet Empire, specifically through setting up tactical nukes in Belarus.
“We are doing what [NATO has] been doing for decades, stationing them in certain allied countries, preparing the launch platforms and training their crews … We are going to do the same thing,” Putin intoned ominously.
Needless to say, that’s not exactly a sign of confidence in Biden’s endless “aid,” with no end in sight, to Ukraine.
Little wonder that White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby made a valiant effort to quell Americans’ fears during an appearance on “Face the Nation.”
“We’ve in fact seen no indication he has any intention to use nuclear weapons, period, inside Ukraine,” Kirby insisted.
For the sake of the planet’s future, one can only hope Kirby is speaking truths, rather than ever-popular propaganda.
No matter what varied Biden officials say or don’t say, one axiom is rather true: Biden’s threats against Putin have clearly not disturbed him in the slightest.
On the contrary, Putin is continuing to openly mock the White House, notably in conjunction with Chinese President Jinping Xi.
“Our cooperation in the international arena undoubtedly helps strengthen the basic principles of the global order and multipolarity,” Putin brayed with regards to “cooperating” with Xi.
Shocker, considering that Hunter also “cooperated” on suspicious deals with the Chinese and Russians alike.
In other words, what Beijing invested in via “the Big Guy.”
Elections have consequences …
“China has made a colossal leap ahead in its development in recent years … It’s causing genuine interest all around the world, and we even feel a bit envious,” Putin added pointedly, underscoring the degree to which the United States economy is flailing under Biden.
“We hope that the strategic partnership between China and Russia will on the one hand uphold international fairness and justice, and on the other hand promote the common prosperity and development of our countries,” the Russian president continued.
Strategic partnership = accelerated loss of U.S. supremacy on the world stage.
Putin pointedly added that the West had been making a move towards “persistently working to split the common Eurasian space into a network of ‘exclusive clubs’ and military blocs that would serve to contain our countries’ development,” coldly stating that the exclusive clubs “won’t work.”
In the meantime, those clubs continue on, namely NATO and now the ICC, with the latter issuing an arrest warrant more symbolic in nature than anything else.
“[Putin] bears responsibility for the war crime of unlawful deportation of population and that of unlawful transfer of population from occupied areas of Ukraine to the Russian Federation, in prejudice of Ukrainian children,” the ICC warrant declared.
Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Maria Zakharova made it rather clear that Russia remains unimpressed by the ICC warrant.
“The decisions of the [ICC] have no meaning for our country, including from a legal point of view,” Zakharova sniped.
And, as if to show how meaningless the warrant truly is, Putin showed up in Ukraine physically, taking stock of the lands that the United States claimed he didn’t have.
One really would like a bit more truth regarding this entire war, as Biden has now shoveled in well over $100B with literally no end to the war in sight.
Between the failing banks, crumbling infrastructure, and rising nuclear threats, one can only hope the nation survives until 2024, when new leadership is desperately needed to stop the rapidly sinking ship otherwise known as “Obama’s Third Term.”
