President of the United States Joe Biden claims that since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, there has never been a greater chance of a nuclear “Armageddon.”
Mr. Biden stated that it was “not joking” for Vladimir Putin to threaten to use tactical nuclear weapons after experiencing setbacks in Ukraine.
The US was “trying to figure out,” he continued, Mr. Putin’s plan for ending the conflict.
The US and the EU have emphasized the significance of taking Mr. Putin’s nuclear saber-rattling seriously in the past.
Despite Moscow’s nuclear hints, the US has not seen any signs that Russia is preparing to use a nuclear weapon in the near future, according to Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser for the US.
Despite the four recent illegitimate annexations by Russia, Ukraine has been gaining territory at the expense of Russia.
Russian officials have been warned by US officials that if they run into trouble on the battlefield, they might resort to using WMDs.
President Biden claimed that the Russian leader had made reference to using tactical nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons because “his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming.”
For the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis, nuclear war may be on the horizon if current trends continue, Vice President Biden warned his fellow Democrats.
“We have not had to deal with the possibility of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis,” the author writes.
