Nuclear. Where to start?  Well, the danger of nuclear war is the most urgent thing.  There’s Ukraine – with Zelensky wanting to attack Crimea, and with Biden surrounded by his warmongering advisors Victoria Nuland, Jake Sullivan and more- “whatever it takes“.

The USA warhawks are getting smarter. Instead of starting a war, with USA troops, as in Iraq, Afghanistan etc – the system now is to goad another country into an invasion –   Russia invading Iraq,  That not only preserves USA troops from any danger, but is a business coup for US weapons company, – as in Ukraine buying $billions of weapons. Intended result –  a weakened Russia

Next step, even cleverer  –   get Australia to buy $171 billions of nuclear submarines, goad China into attacking its own province, Taiwan, and let Australia as China’s adversary and target, take the human and financial brunt of it all . Intended result – a weakened China.  USA is in dire need of some intelligent leaders and advisors.
