    Biden Issues Massive Nuclear ‘Armageddon’ Warning

    Published on

    President Joe Biden stated on Thursday that the potential of a nuclear “Armageddon” is at its greatest level since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, as Russian authorities discuss the idea of use tactical nuclear weapons following huge losses in their eight-month invasion of Ukraine.

    Biden stated at a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee event in New York City that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “a guy I know fairly well” and that Putin is “not fooling around when he talks about the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons.”

    “We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis,” Biden said, referring to the tense event during John F. Kennedy’s tenure as president. Biden suggested the threat from Putin is real “because his military is — you might say — significantly underperforming.”

    As a result of a series of strategic failures on the battlefield, U.S. officials have been warning for months that Russia may deploy weapons of mass destruction in Ukraine, but Biden’s remarks were the starkest warnings yet from the U.S. government about the nuclear dangers.

    It was unclear whether Biden was referring to a new assessment of Russian intentions when he made his statement. U.S. officials have stated as late as this week that they have observed no change in Russia’s nuclear capabilities that would need a change in the alert posture of U.S. nuclear weapons.

    Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated, “We have not seen any reason to adjust our own strategic nuclear posture, nor do we have indication that Russia is preparing to imminently use nuclear weapons.”

    According to analysts, the 13-day confrontation in 1962 that followed the United States’ revelation of the Soviet Union’s secret deployment of nuclear weapons to Cuba was the closest the world ever came to nuclear catastrophe. On both sides of the Iron Curtain, the crisis during the Kennedy administration refocused attention on weapons control.

    Biden also criticized the Russian nuclear strategy, stating that the deployment of a tactical bomb with a lesser yield may rapidly escalate out of hand and cause global disaster.

    According to The Washington Post, Biden stated, “I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily (use) a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon.”

    He said that he was still “attempting to determine” Putin’s “exit strategy” in Ukraine.

    “From where does he escape?” Biden asked. Where does he find himself that he would not not only lose face but also considerable authority within Russia?

    Putin has regularly referred to the use of his country’s enormous nuclear weapons, most recently when he revealed intentions to recruit Russian soldiers to serve in Ukraine last month.

    “I want to remind you that our country also has various means of destruction … and when the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, to protect Russia and our people, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal,” Putin said Sept. 21, adding with a lingering stare at the camera: “It’s not a bluff.”

    National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said last week that the United States has been “clear” to Russia about what the “consequences” of using nuclear weapons in Ukraine would be. CONTINUE READING…
