Belarus’s longtime leader Alexander Lukashenko has said that if the West does not stop “attacking” his country and trying to oust him from power, he will use “super nuclear” weapons, and is prepared to do so.
Belarus is prepared to deploy nuclear arms, as well as even more powerful, unspecified weapons, to defend against threats from the West. “In the event of emergency, if our enemies and opponents take such senseless, stupid steps, we will deploy not only nuclear weapons, but even prospective supernuclear ones, to defend our territory,” he said according to a report by RT.
On the subject of a possible transfer of power in the country, the leader, who has been in office since 1994, said, “if the collective West will take its sights off Belarus and not try to overturn things there, as happened in 2020, then everything will be lawful and thorough, it will all happen earlier than they want. If they attack us, like in 2020, then I will be an eternal president.”
The Belarusian leader also did not rule out the possibility of recognizing the independence of the Donetsk People’s Republic and Lugansk People’s Republic, self-proclaimed breakaway states in Ukraine’s eastern Donbass region, which have been locked in a conflict with Kiev’s forces since 2014. The decision would be made together with Russia, he emphasized, explaining, “we will agree with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin how to act in the best interests of Russia and Belarus, but it will be a mutual decision.” –RT
Although a full-scale war has yet to break out, tensions continue to rise. Lukashenko has been accused of imposing a harsh police crackdown on political opposition and media following the election, causing many anti-government figures and activists to flee Belarus and effectively shuttering nearly all opposition media outlets. As with all who gain power over others, they corrupt, and eventually, those they falsely believe they have a right to rule over because of the sham that is “democracy” will take every bit of freedom from those perceived as its slaves.
The solution is never to give the master more power. It’s to remove and abolish slavery. Until we realize that one tyranny isn’t the problem, and the fact that there a “position” for that tyrant to occupy is, the more enslaved we will be. Our belief that some have a right to rule us because others chose them to do so is what’s keeping us enslaved. Until we realize freedom is our first and most important basic human right is freedom and no one has the right to rule others by force or otherwise, we will stay subjugated and be threatened by those we willingly give power to.
