Borders exist for a reason.
Former Polish president – and famed anti-communist activist – Lech Walesa agrees that the U.S. and Nato’s arming of Ukraine could lead to a nuclear war.
One other thing. Russia has about, I think, 10,000 tactical nuclear weapons, sometimes called battlefield nuclear weapons. You use these for short distances. They can be fired; you don’t need an airplane or a missile to fly them. They can be fired from artillery. But they’re nuclear. They’re radioactive. They’ve never been used. Russia has about 10,000. We have about 500. Russia’s military doctrine clearly says that if Russia is threatened by overwhelming conventional forces, we will use tactical nuclear weapons. So when Obama boasts, as he has on two occasions, that our conventional weapons are vastly superior to Russia, he’s feeding into this argument by the Russian hawks that we have to get our tactical nuclear weapons ready.
Riddle me this: If your neighbors in your neighborhood, those immediately surrounding your property lines and fences, started mounting machinegun nests and pointing them at your home, into your yard where your children play, how long would you tolerate such behavior before you burned every one of those homes to the ground?
Do not tell me Vlad does not have not only a legitimate Natural Law Right to defend his borders from American meddling, but indeed, a moral obligation to his Countrymen to do so.
But discussing it is less than futile. You and I can't legitimately do anything to stop it. Bad Peopleat the highest reaches of many world governments have decided that World War is inevitable and desirable - and they have already set the machinations into motion.
All you and I can do: Try to survive, then hold anyone we can find in the aftermath responsible for their crimes.
