Last night I bet $50 Russia would use tactical nukes. It was one of those spur of the moment joking things.
A young man at the Whataburger asked me what I thought the craziest thing would be to happen in Ukraine. I answered, “Russia using tactical nuclear weapons.”
He said, “I bet you $50.”
Here is the eerie article I just read: “Russian generals plan to nuke their greatest enemy – The United States.”
Friends and readers, this is not the ‘Cold War.’ The Russo-Ukrainian war is very much a hot war. Russia has several maneuver divisions in Ukraine. They have lost a LOT of soldiers. And Russia is becoming desperate to win. And to win quickly.
It has always been part of Russia’s Battle Plan to use tactical nukes when outnumbered – think China – or losing badly – think Ukraine winning. Now Russia is adding Strategic Nuclear Delivery back in when we ‘officially’ have been moving towards peace.
Either Russia, her Generals, and her leaders have gone crazy, or US leaders have gone crazy, or somewhere in between.
I bet on in between.
While we have been told that Obama was cutting defense spending because of ‘peace gains,’ in the background, I believe Obama was specifically complaining about Russia.
I believe Obama asked Democracy Organizations to investigate and encourage overthrowing the Russian Government.
And I believe in reaction to that, Russia has considered democracy movements in Russia a direct threat to their sovereignty. And they are now acting in accordance with what they believe is their only option.
And this war option is escalating.
Please pray for peace.
