Don’t Bring the World to an End! by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

Prolonging the war will diminish, not improve, the outcome for Ukraine, U.S. and NATO. From Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., at lewrockwell.com:

The world stands in dire peril today, more so than at any time in the recent past. In an address on Russian TV, President Putin warned the he was prepared to use nuclear weapons if there was an attack on Russian territory: “Vladimir Putin has said he is prepared to use nuclear weapons as he warned the west: ‘I’m not bluffing.’

The Russian president issued the chilling statement in a rambling TV address in which he also confirmed plans to call up reservists ‘to defend our motherland’.

In a series of bizarre claims, he accused the west of threatening to use nuclear weapons against Moscow.

But he insisted Russia’s weapons were more advanced than Nato’s and he was not afraid to use them.

Putin claimed there were ‘plans in Washington and Brussels to move the military action onto the Russian territory’.

He added: ‘They are not just talking about Russia being completely destroyed – a battlefield. [They are] talking about political, cultural and all the typed of sovereignty with complete pillage.

‘Now they are talking about nuclear blackmail. The Zaparozye nuclear power plant was shelled and also some high position representatives of leading Nato states were saying that there might be possibility and permissibility to use nuclear weapons against Russia.

‘Those that allow such statements shall be reminded that our country also has various weapons of destruction, and … they are even more modern than the Nato ones and if there is a threat to the territorial integrity of our country and for protecting our people, we will certainly use all the means available to us and I’m not bluffing.’”
