Worldwide Tensions Increase as Ukraine President Says No Worries

Theatres of conflict are increasing worldwide. Russia sent two Tupolev TU-95 nuclear bombers towards the UK on Wednesday, where they were escorted away by British fighters. 

Israel held a “massive” simulated attack on Iran’s nuclear program as Russia flew “unprecedented” sorties with the Syrian Air Force to deter Israeli bombings on Iranian and Hezbollah positions.

China continued to weaken Taiwan’s with more incursions into the Taiwan Air Defense Zone. Each incident costs millions in jet fuel, at an alleged cost in 2021 of $25.5 billion.

Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky insisted there is no threat of “imminent” invasion by Russia, as Biden had claimed. (And walked back.)

But Biden also confused his NATO allies, saying on Jan. 19, that a “minor incursion” by Russia might be ok. (And walked back).

Regardless, Biden has deployed 3,000 more U.S. troops to Eastern Europe to complement the lethal aid sent to Ukraine. 

Meanwhile the U.S. Army decided now is a good time to discharge unjabbed soldiers “as expeditiously as possible” despite a whistleblower coming forward showing a 300% increase in cancer and miscarriage diagnoses in 2021, since the mandatory jabs.

God help us.
