Top Biden General Discounts “Sprinkling Magic Dust” As Americans Await “Nuclear Blast In Face”

A forewarning new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting Director Sergey Naryshkin of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) revealing: “Consultations between the SVR and the CIA are of a rare but regular nature…Such communication helps reduce unnecessary tensions even though uncertainty is growing over the outcome of the geopolitical standoff between Russia and the West”, says this revelation was joined by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the leader of NATO’s second largest military force after the United States, most factually declaring: “There can be no losers where peace is concerned in Ukraine”.
Inflaming the standoff between Russia and the socialist Western colonial powers while ignoring the call for peace declared by the leader of his military blocs second largest power, this report notes, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg grimly proclaimed: “Most wars last longer than expected when they first begin…Therefore we must prepare ourselves for a long war in Ukraine”—a grim proclamation followed by Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden top military commander Joint Chief’s Chairman General Mark Milley assessing “I can tell you that it’ll take a considerable length of time to militarily eject all 200,000 or plus Russian troops out of Russian-occupied Ukraine…That’s a very high bar…It’s going to take a long time to do it” and warning: “The United States cannot just boost Ukraine’s power by sprinkling magic dust”.
While ruling out any land concessions to Russia in exchange for peace, this report continues, socialist Western colonial puppet leader Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky declared yesterday: “We need to liberate our territory as much as possible and move forward, even if it’s less than half a mile or a hundred yards…We can’t lose time…Forget about the weather, and the like”—a declaration joined by the leftist New York Times observing: “A hero’s welcome awaited President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine on his first trip to the United States after Russia’s full-scale invasion, which came on the heels of two back-to-back military advances that showcased Ukrainian momentum to the West…Mr. Zelensky spoke to a joint session of Congress last December, highlighting the successes and appealing for continued aid….Mr. Zelensky’s second visit, beginning on Tuesday, is a more delicate political mission, coming in the face of skepticism over assistance to Ukraine from some Republican lawmakers and amid a slow-moving and so far inconclusive counteroffensive on which many hopes in the war had been pinned”—and this morning it was revealed: “All six of Ukraine’s deputy defense ministers were dismissed on Monday, a senior government official said, weeks after the defense minister was replaced…Ukraine gave no reason for its latest defense ministry shake up”.
At the same time puppet leader President Zelensky was ousting all of his deputy defense ministers earlier today, this report details, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) reported: “On Sunday night, the Russian armed forces carried out a group strike with high-precision long-range air-launched weapons, as well as attack unmanned aerial vehicles, on the storage sites of the Kiev regime with Storm Shadow cruise missiles, ammunition with depleted uranium, as well as centers for radio reconnaissance and training of sabotage groups of the Ukrainian armed forces”—the MoD also reported: “Over the September 9-16, 2023 period, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have delivered 11 massive strikes with sea-and ground-based long-range high-precision weapons as well as with unmanned aerial vehicles on port infrastructure targets, the production and storage locations of unmanned motorboats, fuel products, ordnance, Western armaments and stations of Ukrainian military personnel”—the MoD then revealed: “The Russian army repelled six attacks by the Ukrainian armed forces in the Donetsk and South Donetsk direction over the past 24 hours, with Kiev losing up to 350 servicepeople”—all of which was joined by the news: “The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has reported that another ring of people engaged in helping people to evade the draft and leave the country has been identified and broken up…With Ukraine short on manpower at the front, it is racing to fill its ranks”.
With Ukraine facing total obliteration by overwhelming and vastly superior Russian military forces, this report notes, it caused Kiev’s spy chief General Kirill Budanov of the Ukrainian Main Intelligence Directorate to declare: “Warehouses in the West are not completely empty…No matter what anyone says…We can see this very clearly as an intelligence agency…We understand we will not end the war with a victory parade in Moscow…But neither should Moscow ever hope to hold one in Kiev”—a declaration joined by Director Aleksey Danilov of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council issuing the demand: “Western nations should create their own agreed formula for the vision of Ukraine’s victory and also enshrine military assistance to Ukraine in legislation…The United States and its allies should also develop and implement a set of measures to neutralize so-called war fatigue”—a demand quickly followed by warmongering Republican Party lawmakers Senators Tom Cotton, Roger Wicker, Susan Collins, and Lindsey Graham sending a letter to Socialist Leader Biden, urging him to send MGM-140 Army Tactical Missile Systems to Ukraine, arguing that not doing so will “only prolong the war” between Ukraine and Russia.
Quickly countering these warmongering United States Senators in his own political party and Ukrainian demands, this report continues, it saw United States Congressman Michael Waltz releasing his open letter “The Era Of Ukraine’s Blank Check From Congress Is Over”, wherein he most factually assessed: “The Biden administration has neither explained the American objective in Ukraine nor his strategy to achieve it…Will American military spending continue until Ukraine has pushed Russia back to its prewar boundaries?…Its pre-2014 boundaries?…Or until the Putin regime collapse?…We don’t know because Biden refuses to tell us…”As long as it takes” is a slogan, not a strategy…Successive administrations failed to offer clear benchmarks for what a victory in Iraq or Afghanistan looked like…Nobody in this administration is even trying regarding Ukraine”.
In full support of the indisputable military expert analysis: “Ukrainian troops have suffered colossal losses during Kiev’s counteroffensive while achieving almost no results…Ukrainian territorial gains from their much-vaunted counteroffensive are so miniscule they can barely be seen on a map…Russia will take more territory and win the war”, yesterday it saw Elon Musk posting the grave observation: “So much death for so little”—a grave observation of truth coming from the world’s richest person and acknowledged greatest genius of our time to the extent he’s been designated as a “shadow ruler” of America—but for those who would logically think that the thoughts and observations of Musk would be heeded by the socialist warmongers ruling the United States, world renowned American international security expert Professor Max Abrahms at Northeastern University, in his just released dire open letter “You’re Not Supporting Ukraine Enough Until The Nuclear Blast Hits Your Face” beyond all belief documents:
What happened to Elon Musk this past week showcases how completely unhinged and dangerous U.S. policy to Ukraine has become.
The condemnation began when the Washington Post published excerpts from a new biography on Musk revealing that he turned down a Ukrainian request to help launch a major sneak attack in September 2022 on the Crimean port of Sevastopol.
There were numerous, legitimate reasons why Musk refused to activate his Starlink internet services for Ukraine to carry out the unprecedented, surprise attack on Russian naval vessels: Musk was providing terminals to Ukraine for free; he was not on a military contract at that time; the late-night request came directly from the Ukrainian—not American—government; and Starlink had never been activated over Crimea because of U.S. sanctions on Russia.
Most importantly, Musk was concerned that enabling the attack could result in serious “conflict escalation“. He worried that he was being asked to turn on Starlink for a “Pearl Harbor like attack” and had no wish to “proactively take part in a major act of war“, possibly provoking a Russian nuclear response.
In response to this nuclear aversion, Musk was called “evil” by a high-level Ukrainian official and “traitor” by American war enthusiasts.
Rachel Maddow on the Russia conspiracy network MSNBC said Musk was “intervening to try to stop Ukraine from winning the war“. Not to be outdone, CNN’s Jake Tapper described Elon as a “capricious billionaire” who “sabotaged a military operation by Ukraine, a U.S. ally“, an act that demands “repercussions“. For his part, chief Iraq war salesman-turned-Democrat-darling, David Frum, said that Musk must be stripped of his U.S. government contracts for not reflexively acceding to the Ukrainian Starlink request, and former “progressive“, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, called for an immediate Congressional investigation “to ensure foreign policy is conducted by the government and not by one billionaire“.
But the Musk pile-on was just getting started. In the days that followed, his detractors used a Ukrainian operation as proof that Musk was overreacting. Days after the Starlink story broke, Ukraine successfully launched British Storm Shadow cruise missiles into the Russian naval headquarters in the Crimean port city of Sevastopol. It was the largest attack since Moscow launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine nearly 19 months ago, and it damaged a Russian submarine and warship.
When the military action was not followed by World War III, Musk was torched again. As the pro-war media noted, “It was precisely such a strike, according to Musk, that should have provoked a nuclear war“. A torrent of international relations pundits on Twitter mocked Musk, tweeting things like “I was assured by an internet service provider executive that this would have caused WWIII and the use of nuclear weapons” and “How’s it going man, after the splendid attack on Sevastopol? WW3 started already?”
Musk’s detractors might think this is all very funny, but attacking Crimea—not to mention the Russian mainland in increasingly frequent drone strikes on Moscow—is no laughing matter. Even the staunchest Western war enthusiasts from the NATO-aligned Atlantic Council to the Estonian defense minister to Biden’s own Secretary of State Antony Blinken all previously acknowledged that threatening Crimea is a possible “red line” that could lead to nuclear war.
As the Russian military specialist Nicolo Fasola pointed out in April, “There’s a definite risk that Putin would use nuclear weapons to counter a Ukrainian offensive in Crimea. And that’s why Ukraine’s Western allies are reluctant“.
But that previous caution has faded—no doubt as a result of the much-touted counteroffensive disappointing American war planners, leading to a seemingly endless and halting war of attrition reminiscent of World War I. Meanwhile, Biden’s political legacy is on the line as the presidential election looms.
The longer the war goes on, the more the Biden administration and its NATO allies are throwing caution to the wind. Biden keeps consenting to supply weapons previously ruled out as excessively escalatory, from Patriot air defense systems to Abrams tanks to cluster munitions to F-16’s. The latest reversal is over the expected transfer of Army Tactical Missile Systems that can fly up to 190 miles, enabling Ukrainian forces to strike far beyond Russia’s defensive positions inside Crimea and deep into Russian sovereign territory.
National Security advisor Jake Sullivan used to rule out ATACMS “to ensure that we don’t get into a situation in which we are approaching the Third World War“. Even CNN, an enthusiastic advocate for greater American involvement in the war, has acknowledged the “fears about escalating the conflict“.
A couple months ago, Senator James Risch of Idaho told the Aspen Security Forum, “I’m tired of hearing about escalation. I want Putin to wake up in the morning worried about what he’s going to do that’s going to cause us to escalate“. Biden apparently now agrees.
The view now ruling the Democratic Party and the President is the same as the warmongers: It’s silly to worry as Musk does about turning the Ukraine war into something catastrophically worse.
It’s un-American not to try to find Russia’s redline for starting World War III. It’s traitorous to believe—as the President himself did, just a few months ago—that we should be doing all we can to prevent escalation.
The new mantra seems to be: We’re not trying hard enough in Ukraine until we feel the nuclear blast against our faces.
