Are you ready for war? After four years of peace with Russia under President Trump, it has taken Joe Biden and his all-star team of warmongers just over a year to get us to the brink of World War 3. Americans have grown accustomed to wars that only have consequences on the other side of the world, but a war with Russia would be completely different.
Russia is not Iraq, Afghanistan, or Libya. The Russians can fight back, and they would not be afraid to fight dirty. If the American people truly understood what was at stake, they would be flooding the streets in protest right now. One of the things that history has taught us is that you don’t mess with the Russians, and every empire that has tried has ended up paying a very great price. Unfortunately, the Biden administration seems absolutely determined to drag us into a conflict that won’t have any winners.
It would be so easy to avoid war, but Biden and his minions refuse to compromise. Instead, they just keep provoking the Russians, and they keep insisting that a Russian invasion of Ukraine is imminent.
In fact, it is being reported that the U.S. has “credible information” that the Russians could launch an invasion of Ukraine as soon as Wednesday…
Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine as early as next Wednesday, February 16 according to respected German publication, Der Spiegel.
American intelligence services briefed NATO allies of a possible impending Russian invasion against its western neighbor in a series of secret briefings.
The Secret Service, CIA and the Pentagon are said to have received credible information that was passed along to the federal government, reports the German newspaper.
While it is certainly true that both sides continue to move toward the brink of war, I do not believe that the Russians will invade Ukraine this week.
In fact, based on the information that I am getting I do not believe that it will happen during the month of February at all.
But Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan seems to be convinced otherwise. In fact, he continues to insist that an invasion is likely to take place “very soon”…
President Joe Biden’s top national security aide warned again Sunday that the Russian military has the capacity to invade Ukraine “this week” under the pretext of a “false flag” operation portraying Ukrainians as the aggressors.
“The way they have built up their forces, the way they have maneuvered things in place, makes it a distinct possibility there will be major military action very soon,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Sullivan also told CNN what he thinks a Russian invasion of Ukraine would look like…
“If there is a military invasion of Ukraine by Russia, it’s likely to begin with a significant barrage of missiles and bomb attacks,” Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.
“It would then be followed by an onslaught of a ground force moving across the Ukrainian frontier,” he said, adding that there would be a substantial number of civilians caught in the crossfire.
He is envisioning a conventional ground invasion, but if the Russians actually pulled the trigger I think that they would conduct a more surgical operation designed to take control of Kiev as rapidly as possible.
But of course, I could be wrong about that.
In any event, I believe that it is so important for everyone to become very familiar with Jake Sullivan. Since Joe Biden is not exactly all there mentally at this point, Sullivan has more influence than a national security adviser would normally have, and that is not a good thing.
Sullivan is a “triple threat”. He is a warmonger, he is horribly incompetent, and he is deeply corrupt.
And that is a very dangerous combination.
His partner in incompetence, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, is warning the Russians that there will be a “resolute, massive, and united transatlantic response” if the Russians decide to move in…
With the U.S. and other countries withdrawing embassy staff from Kyiv amid fears a war could erupt at any time, Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned his Russian counterpart Saturday that an invasion of Ukraine “would result in a resolute, massive, and united transatlantic response.”
Blinken appears to be referring to sanctions, but at this stage, the Russians are telling us that they don’t really care about more sanctions…
Vladimir Putin ‘doesn’t give a s**t’ about the risk of Western sanctions if his country were to invade Ukraine, Russia’s ambassador to Sweden said as US staff began withdrawing from eastern Ukraine amid warnings of an ‘imminent’ invasion.
In an outspoken interview yesterday, Viktor Tatarintsev told the country’s Aftonbladet newspaper that ‘the more the West pushes Russia, the stronger the Russian response will be’.
What the Russians really want is for Ukraine not to join NATO.
And considering the fact that having Ukraine in NATO is not in the best interests of U.S. national security, we shouldn’t want Ukraine in NATO either.
As Tulsi Gabbard just told Tucker Carlson, Russia would agree not to invade Ukraine if the U.S. would assure Russia that Ukraine is not going to be given NATO membership…
The Russians don’t want NATO forces and NATO missiles close to their borders.
Just like we wouldn’t want Russian forces and Russian missiles in Mexico and Canada.
But the Biden administration has made it quite clear that there will be no compromises.
Of course, the Russians shouldn’t invade Ukraine over this, but after being lied to so many times by U.S. officials, I can understand that they would be quite alarmed to have western missiles just minutes from Moscow.
And it would be really silly for us to go to war with Russia over the status of Ukraine when some really basic negotiations could settle this whole crisis in about 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, a war is becoming more likely with each passing day.
In fact, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Russians have already begun “hybrid war” operations inside Ukraine…
Ukrainian officials say that Russia, which has positioned more than 100,000 troops around three sides of Ukraine, is stepping up a destabilization campaign involving cyberattacks, economic disruption and a new tactic: hundreds of fake bomb threats.
Russian forces and their proxies already control portions of Ukraine and frequent skirmish with government forces. The aim of Moscow’s intensifying hybrid campaign, Ukrainian officials say, is to weaken their country and sow panic, potentially provoking discontent and protests of the kind Russia fomented in eastern Ukraine in 2014 to justify its interventions there. U.S. and U.K. officials said last month they uncovered coup plots intended to install a puppet pro-Russian government.
The U.S. continues to escalate matters as well. On Saturday, it was being reported that the Russians had to chase a U.S. nuclear submarine out of their territorial waters…
A Russian naval vessel chased away a US submarine in Russian waters in the Pacific after the submarine ignored a Russian order to surface, Interfax news agency cited the defense ministry as saying on Saturday.
The Russian ministry called in the US defense attache after complaining that the submarine had entered its waters, the RIA news agency reported. Tensions between Moscow and Washington are already high over a Russian military buildup near Ukraine.
For years, I have been warning that a conflict between the United States and Russia was coming.
But I don’t want it to happen.
Nobody should want it to happen.
Because the Russians have more than 1,000 different ways that they could hurt us, and a war with Russia would very likely go nuclear at some point.

Don’t forget to program your DVR. I find it silly that mainstream media is saying war is on Wednesday. What General in their right mind announces this by giving critical intel away? so I feel it is incorrect.
If I were attacking I would start the attack 30 seconds after kickoff in yesterdays super bowl.
You mean the commanding general isn’t supposed to call before an attack?
There ain’t gonna be a war. There never was gonna be a war.
how dare you Michael….try to interfere with the big guys cut.
who would not want to go to war to secure the big guys take and little crackys lively hood ?
Buy muh book.
You mean trump’s $75 picture book. Did ya know he wrote all of the captions himself!? What a big boy he’s become. ?
If they bring the draft back, then you’ll see protests.
I’m busy wednesday, Can we make it late next week?
Oh – MY – GOD!!!!! I know!! I am the same. I told Pooty Pooh my dog ate my war plans and we still don’t have a trans defense chief in place yet so, sos, we can’t do war this week. Can I pencil in a tentative war, say, about next year this time, but, but, only if I have my covid relief plan in place. So, now thinking about it, can we do war say in 2025??? Oh, I hate pressure ….
Thanks for making fun of the idiocy from “D.C.” Predicting the exact time of any military action is a fool’s-errand. Laughing at those making the predictions is the best medicine.
If predicting an invasion is a fools errand, what do you call all of the evangelical nutbag preachers guaranteeing trump’s “reinstatement” to the White House? And how about shithead Lindell’s constant predictions? And Sydney Powell?
I won’t say that I knew that this would happen, but I was afraid of something like or similar to this when Biden and his handlers took over. What is next ? I wish I knew, not so much for myself, but for my family, the kids, the grand kids, the great grand kids and for the world as a whole.
Tell your kids they’re doomed. The future for them is 0. Way to go grandpa…
Did you thank your parents for having you?
You’re absolutely correct. The moment MAGA returns to the White House (whether that’s trump or some other fascist) we are definitely doomed. I predict you morons are going to get the dictatorship you so dearly crave.
I’ve still yet to order my Stihl replacement coils for my chainsaws to put in my cage as a hedge.
These are the same intelligence sources that gave us WMD’s in Iraq, missed 800,000 Russians marching into Afghanistan, the takeover of the US embassy in Iran, etc etc etc?
The neo-cons are really pressing the prezz to go to war with the Russians. If war starts it will be the fault of the US. In 1962 the US demanded the USSR leave Cuba because it would place their offensive weapons on our door step. The USSR pulled them out.
In 1990, after the Bolshevik communist system collapsed, the US promised Russia NATO would not move one inch east. The US has broken promise after promise, Russia protested but left it at that. Now it’s 1962 again in that the US wants to place powerful offensive weapons in Ukraine and in east European countries, all on Russia’s door step. Where is Russia supposed to go. That’s why Russia has drawn the line in Ukraine, it has no where else to go, what else can they do?
Russia has stated again and again they want diplomatic and political solutions but our wretched mindless prezz is so incompetent and has had such a miserable year he needs the distraction.
The neo-cons are the authors of this whole mess however. They get the war they want and our easily manipulated prezz gets the blame. The neo-cons either want Russia destroyed or back under Bolshevism. Add the fact that Russia is reChristianizing, and is too powerful for the neo-cons to bully them angers them more. Neo-cons don’t want a confined conflict inside inside Ukraine only, they want a major war of Europeans fighting Europeans and Christians fighting Christians, to further weaken and fracture them. Historically, for most Americans, our relationships and foreign policy is based on political concepts and diplomacy. But for the last 30+ years, it is based on neo-con goals, which the American people are almost entirely ignorant of. The neo-cons goals are not based on what’s best for the US but what the neo-cons want. They are merely using the might and resources of the US for their own purposes.
Keep your children and grandchildren out of the military.
Probably correct information, as we know General Milley is consulting and coordinating with the enemy.
Let’s be frank: there won’t be World War Three this week. It is BS. There is only two ways to interpret what is going on:
1) It is all a hoax and a deal has been struck to allow Russia to create some power space in Europe
2) We really are facing a global war. If that was the case, then look around: does it look like your government is making any effort to prepare for such a war? To help you to survive the coming attacks on Western cities? If I look out my window I would have to say no. In the run up to WWII – the so-called ‘phony war’ – European cities saw air raid shelters installed, gas masks issued, neighbourhood wardens set up, the military ramped up its resupplies. Fast-forward to today, and all the weapons they had in WWII are many magnitudes worse and more effective and accurate (hypersonic missiles, bioweapons, cyber weapons etc.). Yet our governments are talking about trans rights, how the police are ray-ciss, etc. So, no, we are not heading for WWIII.
There isn’t going to be a war, Putin knows he doesn’t stand a chance against Biden.
Watch and see.
You evidently don’t know a THING about the weapons Putin has that can overcome what we have FACT! I know that and this is all I can say. I was involved in this stuff for many years. They (Russia) ran over us starting with Obama in office when he KILLED some of our high tech work and we have been playing catch-up ever since.
Watch and see.
There is no war. You have been played if you believe so. Putin just pulled his troops. Said it was Western media all along.
Putin won’t reach for the soap.
What about the Olympics?
Take that for trying to cancel Valieva !
Nah! This is a Look Covid Squires nothing burger! But we stoped Russia LoL!
I think you need grammar lessons. Is this supposed to be English?
I just turned 80 & I’m on a fixed income.
I’ll keep you informed.
I canx my Carnival Cruise in the Black Sea next week.
There won’t war except on your buying power.
The Russians announced their troops were now heading back to their bases well away from the Ukrainian borders and that has been confirmed. No doubt the prezz and his handlers and the neo-cons are pissed about it. The Russians realized the Europeans don’t want hostilities and therefore the US had little European support for war. The Russians showed some resolve, ensured Ukraine will not be in NATO, and then packed up and going home.
Several of our allies said American reports of threats were contrived and frantically overstated, and that only the US was apparently seeing some kind of war. Even a lot of Ukrainians were saying that stupid JB was drumming up BS and was going to get them killed. After all the hysterical reporting about invasion and sacking cities the whole world is now laughing at how amateurish and buffoonish the US handled the whole thing. No doubt they’ll spin up a story that they made Russia back down. This is an amateur lie because in reality they wanted a war (with wide European support) and did what they could to provoke one.
The Europeans are shaking their heads over the whole thing, how weak and actually stupid prezzJB looks. The status quo of Ukraine, which no one in Europe had any opposition to, will not change. Ukraine will not now or ever be in NATO. Chalk up another brilliant display of maneuvering for prezzJB.
Europe has now seen how powerless the US currently is. Furthermore, you can bet European gov’ts are rethinking the necessity or purposes of NATO. There will soon be open debate across Europe for its dismantling.
It was funny to watch a “news” presenter reading from a piece of paper handed to him on live TV and saying “this just in, an invasion on Ukraine is just moments away, open hostilities can soon engulf Ukraine and Europe”, and then quickly switch to an “expert” to tell us what is happening. What a huge farce it all is.
Even war hungry Canada is now saying they can’t do war this week because they are really busy with other stuff like Covid, truckers etc.
Putin and the Kiev Nazis played everyone. The Kiev Nazis just got access to billions and billions in cash as well as advanced weapons systems. Russia just had a giant HD ad for its military-industrial complex and tons of weapons contracts will come from that.
Now all they need to do is team up and point those weapons at the real enemies of Europe who hoard their way in by the thousands every day.
Of course there was four years of peace with Russia under trump. Putin was playing trump like a fiddle because he has all the dirt he needs to ruin trump. You can thank trump for empowering Putin for four years.
I see I’m being censored here again. You guys are pro-1A, right?
“After four years of peace with Russia under President Trump” Not if you’re Syrian or Ukrainian. Moron
