When you find yourself standing on the point of the unthinkable, it may be manner too simple for somebody to return alongside and push you over the sting.  I don’t know who simply attacked the Kremlin with drones, however it was clearly carried out for a motive.  Whoever did it knew, or ought to have recognized, that the Russians would strike again actually arduous.  Simply think about how we’d really feel if there have been explosions on the White Home.  Russian leaders are extraordinarily indignant, and a few of them are overtly speaking about utilizing tactical nuclear weapons in opposition to Ukraine.  But when that occurs, our world could possibly be fully turned the other way up.  The Biden administration has hinted that the U.S. would use tactical nuclear weapons in opposition to Russian forces if the Russians use tactical nukes in opposition to Ukraine, and so allow us to hope that cooler heads will prevail.

As a result of as soon as the nukes begin flying, there isn’t a turning again.

I actually want that this assault on the Kremlin had not occurred.  Russian leaders are framing this as “an attempt on President Vladimir Putin’s life”

The Russian presidential administration stated Wednesday that the Kremlin was attacked by drones in a single day in an try on President Vladimir Putin’s life.

Moscow residents had reported listening to two explosions behind Kremlin partitions shortly after 2 a.m. native time, after which the lights went out. Footage shared by residents in a neighborhood Telegram channel captured the incident, as smoke was seen filling the sky above the Kremlin. Movies additionally appeared to indicate a part of the Kremlin on hearth.

So who was accountable for doing this?

Might it have been a false flag by the Russians themselves?

That’s definitely potential.  Either side on this battle are greater than able to conducting false flag assaults.

It is usually definitely potential that the Ukrainians had been behind the assault.  They’ve been utilizing drones to strike other targets deep inside Russia, and the Washington Submit had beforehand reported that Ukrainian officers had discussed attacking Moscow

Final month, The Washington Submit reported that america had secretly monitored discussions amongst Ukrainian officers about potential assaults in opposition to Moscow timed to coincide with the Feb. 24 anniversary of Russia’s invasion. The White Home feared that such a transfer would provoke an aggressive response from Moscow, and two days earlier than the anniversary, the C.I.A. stated that Ukraine’s intelligence directorate “had agreed, at Washington’s request, to postpone strikes” on Moscow. The knowledge was a part of a trove of categorised U.S. intelligence paperwork obtained by The Submit and different information organizations.

When he was requested concerning the assaults, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky flatly denied that his authorities was concerned…

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday denied Moscow’s claims that Kyiv had tried to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin, after Russia stated two drones had been shot down on the Kremlin.

“We didn’t assault Putin. We go away it to the tribunal. We battle on our territory, we’re defending our villages and cities,” Zelensky advised reporters at a joint press convention with Nordic leaders in Helsinki.

Possibly he’s telling the reality.

I don’t know.

We must also not rule out the likelihood that some third occasion is attempting to impress Russia into utilizing tactical nukes in opposition to Ukraine as a result of they know that the U.S. would doubtless reply through the use of tactical nukes in opposition to Russian forces.

There are definitely many events that might like to see an apocalyptic battle erupt between america and Russia.

However irrespective of who did this, the top result’s that Russian leaders are completely livid.

In actual fact, Dmitry Medvedev is publicly calling for “the physical elimination of Zelensky and his cabal”

Russia’s ex-president Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday referred to as for the ‘bodily elimination’ of Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky after Moscow accused Kyiv of a drone assault on the Kremlin geared toward assassinating Vladimir Putin.

‘After right this moment’s terrorist assault, there aren’t any choices left apart the bodily elimination of Zelensky and his cabal,’ stated Medvedev, who has been more and more hawkish since Moscow’s Ukraine offensive.

Different distinguished Russian leaders are issuing extraordinarily indignant statements as well

Professional-Putin Simply Russia occasion chief Sergey Mironov added: “That is the very actual casus belli – a pretext for battle.”

He urged the “liquidation of Ukraine’s terrorist high brass. Now we have one thing to hit their bunkers with.”

Senior politician Alexei Zhuravlev urged: “It’s obligatory to focus on the centre of Kyiv.

“Destroy the president’s workplace, destroy to the bottom the [Ukrainian parliament], the final employees, and the buildings housing the Ukrainian particular companies.”

MP Mikhail Sheremet stated: “It’s time to launch a missile strike on Zelensky’s residence in Kyiv.”

If the Russians do take out Zelensky, that can take this battle to a really harmful new stage.

And if they really determine to make use of tactical nukes in opposition to Ukraine, the Biden administration could be underneath an incredible quantity of strain to hit the Russians again.

That is such a important second in our historical past, and Joe Biden would be the one making the ultimate choices on our finish.

For sure, that thought mustn’t carry consolation to any of us.

In fact the U.S. navy will not be precisely ready for an apocalyptic battle with Russia.  As a substitute, our navy has been focusing on other things

The US Navy invited an active-duty drag queen to be a “Digital Ambassador” – as a part of a latest drive “to draw probably the most proficient and various workforce” and fight plunging recruitment.

Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, who identifies as non-binary, was appointed as the primary of 5 Navy Digital Ambassadors in a pilot program that ran from October to March.

Kelley, whose stage identify is Harpy Daniels, has shared their journey on TikTok and Instagram, the place they described how they started performing onboard and have become an “advocate” for individuals who “had been oppressed for years within the service.”

In a battle of political correctness, we’d beat the Russians palms down.

However that isn’t the best way that actual wars are received.

In fact most People are not looking for a battle with Russia in any respect.

Most People simply wish to work arduous and lift their households.

Sadly, our leaders have simply saved pushing us nearer and nearer to the unthinkable, and now we’re staring down into an abyss of distress and ache.

Is it potential that somebody simply tried to push us over the sting?

I don’t know.

However what I do know is that the Russians are going to hit Ukraine extraordinarily arduous, and I’m simply hoping that they determine to make use of some restraint.
