Global Community Spooked as Putin and Biden Get Tense


The long and tumultuous relationship between the United States and Russia is, just below its surface, a terrifying situation; not only for the nations directly involved, but for the rest of the world as well.

You see, should Washington DC or Moscow decide that it’s time to teach the other a little lesson, militarily, each nation is bound by a concept called “mutually assured destruction” that’s just as bad as it sounds.  Essentially, both superpowers will fire their entire cache of nuclear weapons into the heart of each other’s nations, essentially triggering armageddon across large, now-uninhabitable swaths of the only planet we currently have at our disposal.

So, when these two countries get to jibber-jabbering with one another, and the temperature starts to rise, the world takes notice.

This has been one of those weeks.

President Joe Biden proposed a potential meeting “in the coming months” with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a call between the two leaders on Tuesday.

Biden suggested a summit meeting “in a third country,” according to a summary of the call released by the White House. It did not include Putin’s reaction to the offer.

It was one of several topics raised during the conversation, according to the readout. The White House said that Biden “emphasized the United States’ unwavering commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity” amid rising tensions between that country and Russia.

The current issue between these two nations comes as Russia appears to be ready to make military moves against Ukraine, which spurred the United States into repositioning some of their warships to the region.

That move then prompted a nasty response from the Russians, stating that the US was now acting as an adversarial entity.

And, as always, over this talk hangs the threat of nuclear annihilation.
