For many of us, there is a nagging new omnipresent concern weighing on our mental health: Whether or not we’re about to be vaporized in some belligerently-instigated nuclear holocaust.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is believed to be dying of cancer, has been getting his rear-end handed to him in Ukraine. The stunning outcome has completely dismantled his military’s once-mighty reputation, and it’s left Russia a sitting duck.
Well, a sitting duck with nukes…and lots of them. And so, naturally, the trapped-like-a-rat Putin has been threatening the entire world with an atomic apocalypse, likely in order to erase this massive blunder from history.
President Joe Biden, who just days ago suggested that we are closer to nuclear “Armageddon” than anytime since the Cuban Missile Crisis, now thinks that Putin knows better than to launch an atomic weapon.
President Joe Biden continued to explain and modify his warning about nuclear “Armageddon” from Russia, a stark suggestion about the potential for escalation in Russia’s war against Ukraine he made last week.
The most recent remarks came in a wide-ranging interview with CNN host Jake Tapper, which aired Tuesday and covered both domestic and international issues.
Asked by Tapper whether he thought Putin would actually use nuclear weapons, Biden said, “I don’t think he will. But I think that it’s irresponsible for him to talk about it.”
The threat of a nuclear weapon could lead, Biden said, “to just a horrible outcome. And not because anybody intends to turn it into a world war or anything, but … the mistakes that can be made, the miscalculations, who knows what would happen?”
Putin has insisted that he is “not bluffing”, and the Kremlin has mobilized at least two pieces of their nuclear arsenal over the course of the last several weeks.
