      Now is the time for Biden to clarify U.S. nuclear doctrine. But he remains silent.

      By Scott Ritter

       

      On Monday, Oct. 17, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization kicked off Operation STEADFAST NOON, its annual exercise of its ability to wage nuclear conflict. Given that NATO’s nuclear umbrella extends exclusively over Europe, the indisputable fact is that STEADFAST NOON is nothing more than NATO training to wage nuclear war against Russia.

      Nuclear war against Russia.

      The reader should let that sink in for a moment.

      Don’t worry, NATO spokesperson Oana Lungscu reassured the rest of the world, the purpose of STEADFAST NOON is to ensure that NATO’s nuclear war-fighting capability “remains safe and effective.” It is a “routine” exercise, not linked to any current world events. Moreover, no “real” nuclear weapons will be used — just “fake” ones.

      Not to get immediately side-tracked, a friend of came into church tonight wearing a tee-shirt and a skirt. The tee-shirt said, “Do not make stupid people famous“. More on this in a moment.

      Holding a Nuclear Arms Exercise while there are tensions in Europe are high is thick. In the past, because of current events, other military exercises were put off to a later date or canceled indefinitely. This was due to experiences in the past. Not this time.

      If you read towards the end of the piece, you will find out the Russians are going to hold their own nuclear exercise at the same time. One unnamed U.S. State Official stated, “Russian nuclear rhetoric and its decision to proceed with this exercise while at war with Ukraine is irresponsible. Brandishing nuclear weapons to coerce the United States and its allies is irresponsible.”

      Speaking of irresponsible, in the past 22 years or, let us say, the past 100 years, I do not recall Russia going if front of the world and ripping up a treaty. There is one country that is well known who ripped up a number of nuclear treaties with Russia within the last 22 years. Now this country is saying something about irresponsible, this is where we get back to stupid.

      Ya betcha!

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

        Serious question.

        I was planning on not voting. After going online and reading people like you, I am now inclined to vote for JD Vance, because at least he realizes you can’t be prepared for and manage a nuclear war, unlike your precious Democrat Ryan, who thinks that is what the oh-so-competent Biden Administration can do.

        And the Republican running against Shontel Brown(you remember her–she beat Nina Turner twice in the primary and votes lockstep with Pelosi and the other warmongers) is a cross-dressing former Democrat. Shouldn’t he get the woke vote anyway?

        Both George W. Bush II and Donald Trump both tore up nuclear treaties with Russia. Both Barack Obama and Joe Biden provoked Russia with a no return war. So can understand a person being cynical about so-and-so, but in my book the whole mob needs to be held accountable.
