FAST FIVE: Biden's Nuclear "Armageddon" Statements Not Based In Any Evidence: US Intelligence

Published by on

Biden had asserted the threat of nuclear “Armageddon” is at its highest level since the Cuban missile crisis. “He is not joking when he talks about potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological and chemical weapons, because his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming,” Biden said in the prior evening remarks, according to Bloomberg.

“I don't think there's any such thing as the ability to easily use tactical nuclear weapons and not end up with Armageddon.” And yet the White House is still defending Biden's fearmongering statements, even after intel officials indicated there's been no new intelligence to back up his words, per the CNN report:  One senior administration official said Biden was speaking “frankly” in his remarks at a Democratic fundraiser in New York, reflecting heightened concern based on Putin's recent nuclear threats.

21 'partial mobilization' speech wherein nuclear weapons were never directly named, but instead many have suggested he was more likely talking about Russia's advanced hypersonics arsenal: I would like to remind those who make such statements regarding Russia that our country has different types of weapons as well, and some of them are more modern than the weapons NATO countries have.

Medvedev's remarks quoted the exact terminology of one of the conditions of Russia's nuclear strike doctrine: “aggression against the Russian Federation with conventional weapons when the very existence of the state is threatened”.

Russia has the right to use nuclear weapons if necessary,” Medvedev said, adding that it would do so “in predetermined cases” and in strict compliance with state policy.
