Russia is not taking kindly to the United States keeping Ukraine and President Zelensky flush with military supplies.
Between that and some comments made by Joe Biden, the trigger finger of some Russian officials seems to be twitching.
To that point, a member of Russia’s Parliament is now laying down the gauntlet, openly threatening a strike against the United States.
Take You Out
Alexei Zhuravlev is now touting the idea of taking out the east and west coast with a missile strike.
Putin’s thug stated, “I will tell you absolutely competently that to destroy the entire the East Coast of the United States, two Sarmat missiles are needed.
“And the same goes for the West Coast.
“Four missiles, and there will be nothing left.”
This may all seem like bravado on his part to some, but there is some real concern about his statements.
The problem as I see it right now is that Russia simply cannot afford to be involved in a dual-front war.
The conflict with Ukraine has drained much of Russia’s military assets and it is widely believed that Russia is very vulnerable right now.
If Putin did feel threatened by NATO and the United States, nukes are his only real option, as he simply cannot afford to get into a ground, sea, or air battle with anyone because of Ukraine.
With concern for Putin’s health and mental state, it is a scary thought that he has members of his parliament so open to a nuclear strike.
