Have you ever played War, the card game?
People are accusing Russia of stepping up the rhetoric. Here is the statement by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov:
“Nato, in essence, is engaged in a war with Russia through a proxy and is arming that proxy. War means war.”
What is incorrect about that statement? I think he was being kind by saying “in essence.”
I don’t understand how people can post pictures of food, bunny rabbits, cats and so on while we are 5 seconds away from nuclear war and global destruction. This isn’t being hyperbolic. This is reality.
America and Western Nations are openly saying they want to destroy Russia. We are not pursuing a diplomatic solution.
The New York Times wrote:
“KRAKOW, Poland — The United States toughened its messaging on the Ukraine war on Monday, saying the American aim was not just to thwart the Russian invasion but also to weaken Russia so it could no longer carry out such military aggression anywhere.
The aim was stated in explicit terms by the highest-ranking Biden administration delegation to visit Ukraine since the war began. It reflected an emboldened intent to counter Russia by giving more numerous and powerful arms to the Ukrainians, who have battled Russian forces with unexpected tenacity, sapped Kremlin resources and flustered President Vladimir V. Putin’s hope for a quick victory.
The American delegation also announced that the United States would reopen its embassy in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv — another signal aimed at portraying Russia as headed toward defeat. The embassy, closed in the run-up to the Feb. 24 invasion, will be led by a newly appointed ambassador.
The American visit itself, led over the weekend by Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III and Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken, was completed early Monday and amounted to a risky dare to Russia, which has been seeking to subjugate Ukraine by force for more than two months. Russia has demanded that the United States and its NATO allies quit supplying advanced arms to Ukraine’s military.
Although the trip was supposed to be secret, word leaked, and Russia rained rockets on at least five Ukrainian rail stations hours after the visitors had finished talks with President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv and then traveled by rail to Poland, which can take 11 hours. It is unclear whether they were in Ukraine during any part of those attacks or whether Russia had been targeting them.”
“Ukraine’s railways and other infrastructure are important for funneling Western-supplied weapons and aid to the combat zones in the former Soviet republic.”
Right now, Russia is destroying the weapons we send as fast as we can send them. They do control the skies after all. Now we’re complaining that they’re destroying the trains that are carrying our weapons, accusing them of attacking civilians.
Is this a new tactic by America and the Western world? Have we now resorted to using civilians as human shields?
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austen said “We want to see Russia weakened to the degree it cannot do the kinds of things that it has done in invading Ukraine.”
Secretary of State Anthony Blinken actually said “Russia is failing,” Mr. Blinken said. “Ukraine is succeeding.”
How delusional can you be? There’s not one example of Ukraine having the upper hand in this war. Not one! Does he really believe the Western propaganda?
The Times added:
“There was every sign on Monday that Russia saw the visit as a provocation to escalate the conflict. Besides the rocket assaults on Ukraine’s railways, Russian attacks in the east knocked out electricity for the entire province of Luhansk, leaving tens of thousands without power, local government officials said.”
Russia saw a visit by two of the top government officials in the world to a country they are at war with as provocation?
DUH! IT IS PROVOCATION!
Have you ever played war, the card game? This looks a lot like “I – declare – war – on – you.”
Why would Russia perceive it differently?
