I pray that Gods Son comes and takes us up in the rapture before the nukes start flying. Biden needs to get some diplomatic activity happening So, like JFK and Khrushchev, will Biden and Putin actually bother with some good old fashioned diplomacy and properly talk to each other directly to de-escalate?

. Nukes will be used in Ukraine. Putin will deny he did it. The West will scoff & retaliate. Just as in George Orwell's 1984, the ppl will lap-up what they're served by media & will not only accept war, but feverishly demand it. Just like the pipeline, US has nothing to lose. StopHazarzaGenocide I can understand Putin using nuclear weapons to protect Russia but I still wonder would he use the then on Ukraine?

It sure is With everything going wrong in the US, he needs a nuclear war. and they was worried about Trump starting a nuclear war 🤦🏻‍♂️ Putin’s scared. He has nothing and he knows it. Both Jinping and Putin talk rubbish. There were concessions made between the Soviet Union and the US during the Cuban Missile Crisis to avoid nuclear disaster. What concessions are being offered by the 'Americaaah, Fuck Yeah!' Yanks during this Crisis? Just like WW2 until Pearl Harbour? No idea.

‘What is he talking about?’: President Biden tries to ‘endear himself’ to Puerto RicansSky News host Rowan Dean says 'we can't go a week without having to ask what exactly is Joe Biden talking about?' Mr Dean looked at recent footage of Joe Biden in Puerto Rico – in which the US President was 'trying to endear himself to the locals.' In the clip, President Biden said he was 'sort of raised in the Puerto Rican community at home – politically'. We can’t go an episode of outsiders without having to ask ‘why exactly is Rowan Dean talking about’ 🤷‍♂️ No. You can't. Have you lot considered professional help for your obsession?

Funny, Biden’s pushing it, ABC promotes it. 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 America wants to start a nuclear war with Russia Putin did not threaten to use Nukes for any new reason than in the past. Nothing has changed. The threat is the same. The only change is US officials have threatened to destroy the Russian government. 'Take out Putin'. Who is provoking nuclear war, not Russia.

Putin is full of 💩 Wasn't it Zelenskyy's nuclear threat? or Liz Truss's threat to use nuclear weapons? And could ABC remind its readers that so called Cuban missile crisis was initiated by the US who placed its missiles in Turkey Welcome to bible prophecy.... Yeah. The sensible approach, hype it up instead of trying to diffuse the situation. Stupid Cold War mongers.

Lying coward corrupt war criminals! Murdered millions in the ME in their illegal wars! Joe Biden would prefer nuclear war than to have his Ukraine corruption exposed. And so would the ABC.

He would be correct. Fails to mention Zelenski wanted a preemptive nuclear strike at the Lowy Institute last night you broadcast it you know. Useless. Constantly drumming into peoples subconscious that Russia will use nukes in a preemptive strike. Once this Russian mobilization is complete, it seems to me that it will be NATO that will be in a situation where they will resort to something desperate.

Biden is the p.o.s responsible for the current situation. I'm more inclined to believe Biden thinks Putin is a Canadian carb-loaded delicacy. . Biggest risk since Cuban missile crisis? The purpose of NATO is to put thousands of missiles closer and closer to Russia. So I guess Biden was referring to risk to US, not risk to Russia or risk of nuclear war... Those risks have never been greater thanks to the US. .

Which country has killed more innocent civilians since WW2? & raped & pillaged defenceless nation’s economies & resources all in the name of their own greed & decay? A demented President & the greedy military industrial complex of the 🇺🇸 leading us all to armageddon. USA proxy Biden's a terrible plagiarist.

‘Senile’ Joe Biden is controlled by ‘faceless figures’: Tucker CarlsonJoe Biden isn’t capable of running a birthday party, let alone running a government, says Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “Joe Biden is senile,” he told Sky News host Peta Credlin. “Of course, he’s merely a proxy for the people that are actually running the US government. “The faceless diabolical figures that are driving us into the abyss … They’ve benefitted greatly from having a senile president.” How much lower can Sky go? In the American system, can you boot the preso for the dep? Agreed. He's absolutely useless.

'What should NATO do. They can use nuclear weapons on Russia, but what is important is we need to launch preemptive strikes so that they know what will happen to them if they use it and not vice versa.' All the people who said the world would be a safe place without Trump in charge surprisingly quiet 'Since Cuban missile crisis' and look who is in charge? Grandpa Joe! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

I wish Biden’s corrupt business dealings were never in Ukraine. He’s willing to destroy the world for money. Only the US was engaged with the USSR then.... And Biden aint no JFK. The US will get their wealthy buddies a new major military conflict whatever it takes, by golly!

"For the first time since the Cuban missile crisis, we have a direct threat to the use of nuclear weapons, if in fact things continue down the path they'd been going," Mr Biden said on Thursday (local time).

"We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis," he said. Kremlin denounces call for preventative strikes Russia recently annexed Ukraine's Donestk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions. ( ABC News: Jarrod Fankhauser ) In the 1962 crisis, the United States under president John Kennedy and the Soviet Union under its leader, Nikita Khrushchev, came close to the use of nuclear weapons over the presence of Soviet missiles in Cuba. "I don't think there's any such thing as the ability to easily [use] a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon," Mr Biden said. Mr Putin, who marks his 70th birthday on Friday, has warned he would use all means necessary, including Russia's nuclear arsenal, to protest Russian soil, which he now says includes four Ukrainian regions he annexed.

In remarks to Australia's Lowy Institute, Mr Zelenskyy said NATO should launch preventive strikes on Russia to preclude its use of nuclear weapons. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov denounced the comments as "an appeal to start yet another world war with unpredictable, monstrous consequences", according to RIA news agency. Russia recently annexed Ukraine's Donestk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, representing about 15 per cent of the country, after holding what it called referendums which have been denounced by Kyiv and Western governments as illegal and coercive. Since Europe's biggest attempted annexation since World War II, a Ukrainian counter-offensive has pushed Russian forces into further retreating and regained large parts of the southern Kherson region.
