As Bloomberg just reported, the Pentagon’s new National Defense Strategy rejects limits on using nuclear weapons long championed by arms control advocates (and, in the not too distant past, by Joe Bide) citing burgeoning threats from Russia and China.
“By the 2030s the United States will, for the first time in its history face two major nuclear powers as strategic competitors and potential adversaries,” the Defense Department said in the long-awaited document issued Thursday. In response, the US will “maintain a very high bar for nuclear employment” without ruling out using the weapons in retaliation to a non-nuclear strategic threat to the homeland, US forces abroad or allies.
In yet another stark reversal for the senile occupant of the White House basement, in his 2020 presidential campaign Biden had pledged to declare that the US nuclear arsenal should be used only to deter or retaliate against a nuclear attack, a position blessed by progressive Democrats and reviled by defense hawks. But, like with every other position held by the pathological liar who even trumps Trump in the untruth department, this one has just been reversed as well as “the threat environment has changed dramatically since then” and the Pentagon strategy was forged in cooperation with the flip-flopping White House.
In a stunning move that should – or rather “should” – spark outrage among the so-called progressives but will at best prompt some very sternly retracted letters, the nuclear report that’s part of the broader strategy said the Biden administration reviewed its nuclear policy and concluded that “No First Use” and “Sole Purpose” policies “would result in an unacceptable level of risk in light of the range of non-nuclear capabilities being developed and fielded by competitors that could inflict strategic-level damage” to the US and allies…

Mother Teresa is correct. Once you decide mothers can kill their own infants, you really can’t stop anyone from killing anyone. I hope the bishops rethink their coddling of Biden.
The other thought, “Republicans start all the wars” is a lie.
” On January 17, 1961, Dwight D. Eisenhower ends his presidential term by warning the nation about the increasing power of the military-industrial complex.
His remarks, issued during a televised farewell address to the American people, were particularly significant since Ike had famously served the nation as military commander of the Allied forces during WWII. Eisenhower urged his successors to strike a balance between a strong national defense and diplomacy in dealing with the Soviet Union. He did not suggest arms reduction and in fact acknowledged that the bomb was an effective deterrent to nuclear war. However, cognizant that Americas peacetime defense policy had changed drastically since his military career, Eisenhower expressed concerns about the growing influence of what he termed the military-industrial complex.”
I’ve used the speech to try to wake up my “normie” neocon friends. This is not just tin foil hat stuff.
Where are all the peacenik protesters? This situation is 1000x more dangerous than Iraq and Afghanistan. Michael Moore? Cindy Sheehan? Bus nuns?
Glad I went to Confession the other evening.
I’m not sure you guys properly understand what is going on here. The goal is not for the US to nuke other countries. The goal is to destroy the USA.
And by that I mean the people of the USA. Who do not support Biden, who do not support any of the awful things we are doing.
Barack Obama, an Errors of Russia guy (communist) said his goal was to cut the USA down to size. He said he would “fundamentally transform” the USA. When a communist says that, watch out.
He had trouble doing that. The American people have guns, and a sizable minority of them still believe in God and Jesus. And even though he’s awful, the US people picked Trump over Obama, which really messed up his plans.
By being an out of control government, by being an international pariah, the US government, still led by Obama and the commies/globalists is inviting destruction to it by everyone else. THIS is why the dollar will no longer be the reserve currency. THIS is why we are going to freeze to death, eat bugs, etc. This is why we pick wars with Russia, lose wars to Afghanistan. It’s why there is currently an international order sea change: the globalists / communists aligned against evereyone else.
By being basically a terror state, which we are now, China will look sane, even-keeled, responsible. We will be nuked, and occupied.
Two entities stop the Great Resetters. Vlad Putin (who is also an evil SOB but doesn’t have the power at the moment) and the citizens of the United States.
They have to be stopped.
That is why the US government , unelected, fraudulent, is doing this. They’re doing it to us.
Thank you for the reality check.
At the conclusion of Mass during the “pre-Vatican ii days” the priest would offer a prayer for the conversion of Russia…let’s start petitioning for the introduction of a prayer for the conversion of America.
After nukes go off, remember the savior most religions are primed to look forward to is the antichrist, who will test the world before Christ returns. Do not be fooled by his magic tricks and fake compassion. Do not put aside national and religious differences aside for the sake of peace and recognizing everyone as your “brother”.
I personally think the AntiChrist will come out of this Ukraine mess. Bergoglio is probably dying, which means the Anti-Christ is the next step.
I think the AC will not be a “globalist” or “communist” per se. He will seem even handed, rational, and logical. I actually think , and don’t laugh, that he will be a lot like Tulsi Gabbard. This woman is as ambitious as they come. Served one term in Congress, ran for president. She is a member of the World Economic Forum. But look at what’ she’s doing…she quit the Democrats, quit the Republicans. She’s building a third way in the US, and I think the antiChrist will be like this– probably from the WEF folks, but will appear likable, attractive, and on the surface very reasonable. But he won’t believe in Jesus and will do whatever he can to establish the Anti-Church. And people, weary from war, bug eating, freezing to death, and trying to make sense out of a chaotic world order (thanks to the death of the USA), will embrace it.
