Thought for the day

"We're so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody's going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven't learned how to care for one another. We're gonna save the fuckin' planet? . . . And, by the way, there's nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin' great. It's been here over four billion years . . . The planet isn't goin' anywhere, folks. We are! We're goin' away. Pack your shit, we're goin' away. And we won't leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we'll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake." -- George Carlin

Western policymakers appear to have reached a consensus about the war in Ukraine: the conflict will settle into a prolonged stalemate, and eventually a weakened Russia will accept a peace agreement that favors the United States and its NATO allies, as well as Ukraine. Although officials recognize that both Washington and Moscow may escalate to gain an advantage or to prevent defeat, they assume that catastrophic escalation can be avoided. Few imagine that U.S. forces will become directly involved in the fighting or that Russia will dare use nuclear weapons.

A military confrontation between Russia, the United States and NATO is not part of Moscow's interests. Russia, as a nuclear power, will continue to act as responsibly as possible, Ivan Nechaev, Deputy Director of the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said, RIA Novosti reports.

Russian Foreign Ministry speaks about Russia-NATO military confrontation

Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter both were involved in stories about having lost the nuclear codes, a 2010 report from ABC News revealed.

ABC had reported on a memoir published by Gen. Hugh Shelton, who served under Clinton as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff between 1997 and 2001, and a story about the former President having lost the codes for “months.”

Nuclear tensions are rising more and more. The US military said on August 16 that it had conducted a test with the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. In the official statement, it was also stated that the operation was already previously scheduled, having been postponed in order to avoid increasing tensions with Beijing during China’s show of force near Taiwan earlier this month. For some unexplained reason, Washington considered the current moment to be the most “appropriate” for the maneuver.

Amid heightened global fears of a nuclear war or accidental catastrophe, Veterans for Peace this week urged President Joe Biden to review its recommendations for U.S. policy related to weapons of mass destruction.

President Joe Biden said Monday that the U.S. would intervene militarily if China were to invade Taiwan, saying the burden to protect Taiwan is “even stronger” after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It was one of the most forceful presidential statements in support of Taiwan in decades.

Biden, at a news conference in Tokyo, said “yes” when asked if he was willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if China invaded. “That’s the commitment we made,” he added.

Dominant Biden regime hardliners are recklessly playing with fire by pushing things for possible war with Russia and China.

The risk of what’s unthinkable is more possible than at any previous time post-WW II — because lunatics run the Washington asylum. 

With Russia overwhelmingly triumphing over US-created and supported Ukrainian Nazis, the empire of lies risks an unthinkable nuclear disaster by orchestrating and directing their attacks on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant — with intent to release and spread deadly radiation over much of central Europe.

In the first week of August, at a moment Chinese military drills surrounding Taiwan were kicked into high gear following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's ultra-provocative visit to the self-ruled island, the White House had announced the Pentagon postponed a routine test launch of an Air Force Minuteman III nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile.

Five billion people would die in a modern nuclear war with the impact of a global famine -- triggered by sunlight-blocking soot in the atmosphere -- likely to far exceed the casualties caused by lethal blasts.

Scientists at Rutgers University mapped out the effects of six possible nuclear conflict scenarios. A full-scale war between the US and Russia, the worst possible case, would wipe out more than half of humanity, they said in the study published in the journal Nature Food.

The horror that pervades life right now is almost indescribable. Trusted medical and scientific institutions have been weaponised against us with the aid of a corrupt media industry. Healthcare is being used to subvert society at the foundational level. A dangerous gene therapy technology is being mis-sold to a terrified public as a safe and effective vaccine.
