For any Western politician who is still confused, Russia clarifies the stakes in war with Ukraine: ‘Loss of conventional war could provoke nuclear war’

Neoconservative and neoliberal globalists ignore the threat of China, while provoking nuclear holocaust with Russia

All it would take is a final humiliating defeat of Vladimir Putin’s invasion force in Ukraine to trigger a nuclear Armageddon that kills millions, a top military expert has warned in an interview with the Daily Mail

Ex-British diplomat Tim Willasey-Wilsey outlined how the Russian-Ukraine war could descend into global carnage if Putin’s military should collapse in the face of unrelenting resistance from Kiev’s Western-armed troops, triggering an apocalyptic scenario. 

The retired foreign office director’s comments came after a threat from one of Putin’s closest allies, former President Dmitry Medvedev, who warned if Russia was beaten in Ukraine it would trigger a nuclear war with the West. 

Medvedev said in a Telegram post:

“It doesn’t occur to any of the wretches to draw the following elementary conclusion: That the loss of a nuclear power in a conventional war could provoke a nuclear war. Nuclear powers have not lost major conflicts on which their fate depends. And this should be obvious to anyone.”

In case Western minds were still in a state of confusion, Vladimir Putin clarified it even further when he said:

“Russia’s nuclear doctrine allows the use of such munitions if weapons of mass destruction are used against it or if the Russian state faces an existential threat from conventional weapons. We will certainly make use of all weapon systems available to us. This is not a bluff.”

In other words, if you are the U.S. and NATO, to win this war in Ukraine is to lose it.

That’s an undeniable fact that no Western politician, military leader, journalist or analyst, no matter how hawkish, can deny.

Russia is a proud nation with a history stretching back more than 500 years that just happens to possess the world’s largest cache of nuclear-tipped ICBMs. What does NATO think Russia purchased those weapons for if not the exact scenario that is starting to look plausible for the first time in the nuclear age? Russia gets decimated on the battlefield and rather than accept a total, unconditional defeat on the West’s terms, Putin decides to unleash the entire nuclear arsenal at his disposal on Western cities. That leaves dozens of cities in smoldering ruins and nuclear fallout for miles upon miles. Period. Full stop. What is so hard to understand about that among the neoconservatives and neoliberals so gung-ho for war with Russia? In military terms, they have a name for this. It’s called a war with no exit strategy.

Keep in mind that war with Russia means war with China. Russia’s role will be one of distraction and depletion, getting the US to focus its attention on Eastern Europe while sending endless armaments to help defend Ukraine. After the Western powers have depleted much of their munitions in Eastern Europe, then the Chinese will strike Taiwan and possibly other targets in the Pacific theater.

Even now, the U.S. military-industrial complex is woefully unprepared for a fight with China, a new report concludes, and cannot fight a war on two fronts.

Defense News, citing a new report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies or CSIS, concludes the U.S. is not ready for a battle over Taiwan, as it would run out of key long-range, precision-guided munitions in less than one week.

U.S. military aid to Ukraine has helped prevent a Russian victory against the neighboring nation, but that assistance has depleted Pentagon stockpiles and shown that the American defense industry cannot surge for a major war, the think tank found.

Seth Jones, senior vice president and director of the international security program at CSIS, wrote:

“As the war in Ukraine illustrates, a war between major powers is likely to be a protracted, industrial-style conflict that needs a robust defense industry able to produce enough munitions and other weapons systems for a protracted war if deterrence fails. Given the lead time for industrial production, it would likely be too late for the defense industry to ramp up production if a war were to occur without major changes.”

The vast number of weapons the U.S. is sending to Ukraine highlights how difficult it would be to replenish them. For example, the U.S. has committed more than 160 M777 155mm Howitzers to Ukraine, leaving its inventory “low.” Manufacturer BAE Systems would need at least 150 orders over several years to justify restarting production lines.

U.S. military stocks of Javelin anti-tank weapons, Stinger anti-aircraft weapons, counter-artillery radars and 155mm artillery shells are all considered low by the study.

Stocks of the Harpoon coastal defense system, a key capability for Taiwan, are considered medium, though current U.S. inventories might not be sufficient for wartime, Jones wrote.

Meanwhile, there is at least one U.S. general whose head is not buried in the sand.

In a two-page memo dated February 1 Air Force General and head of Air Mobility Command Michael Minihan predicted that by 2025 the U.S. will be at war with China, according to a report by NBC News on Friday. In the memo, General Minihan, orders his troops to prepare for the coming war.

“I hope I am wrong. My gut tells me we will fight in 2025,” Minihan wrote in his first paragraph. “[Chinese President Xi Jinping] secured his third term and set his war council in October 2022. Taiwan’s presidential elections are in 2024 and will offer Xi a reason. United States’ presidential elections are in 2024 and will offer Xi a distracted America. Xi’s team, reason, and opportunity are all aligned for 2025.”

A “distracted America.” Did you catch that?

I already see and hear many Americans talking useless politics and getting emotionally and intellectually involved in American political drama. It’s a waste of time. All of that talk on your favorite news channel, no matter how conservative, is sapping your energy and keeping you hooked on hopium. Donald Trump is not going to ride in and save the day in 2024. We need to get our minds off of the fraudulent U.S. political scene and realize we now live in a post-elections era, where all of the most important key elections have a pre-determined outcome. But if they can keep you hoping for an election victory they know you will do nothing to really prepare for what’s coming, which is war, economic collapse and famine. We simply must start preparing ourselves and our families and get them on a war-time footing. That means stocking up on key essentials that will be hard or impossible to find once World War III commences in earnest.

In the memo, General Minihan directed his airmen to “go faster” in their training. “If you are comfortable with your approach to training, then you are not taking enough risk,” he wrote.

Then he ordered that, “All AMC aligned personnel with weapons qualifications will fire a clip into a 7-meter target with the full understanding that unrepentant lethality matters most. Aim for the head.”

All commanders were ordered to submit a report on their “accomplishments preparing for the China fight” by the end of February.

“I alone own the pen on these orders. My expectations are high and these orders are not up for negotiation. Follow them,” he wrote.

In other words, General Minihan was not passing on a command from above to place his men on the highest state of preparedness. No, he is taking full responsibility for this decision. The so-called “president” and the top Pentagon brass are more worried about making sure U.S. soldiers are injected with clot shots and prepared to share their shower stalls with transgendered freaks than they are about making sure they’re prepared to fight the Chinese.

We need to be the General Minihans of our families and communities, doing all we can to wake up our sleeping family members and neighbors, encouraging them to take the latest turn of events seriously and prepare for the worst. If the U.S. sending tanks to the Eastern European war front and a top Air Force general warning his men to “train faster” for a potential Chinese invasion is not enough to wake them up, what will? is 100 percent reader supported, not beholden to any corporate advertisers or sponsorships.

  1. I’m gonna stick my neck out here. Suppose there are no nukes at all? I’ve entertained this notion for about 2 years. I’m 73 and had to perform “drop drills” in junior high. They’ve been scaring us and scaring us about everything under the sun, including the sun. I remember we were told not to eat butter, margarine, fish. Then, we were to be afraid of peanuts, vegetable oils, e-coli in under-cooked ground beef. Next, be afraid of gay men. Next, we were warned against eating gluten.

    I now surmise that vaccines (in the 1970’s) made me sick with Fibromyalgia (muscle and tendon pain, numbness, and weakness) and many doctor visits. I think Alex Jones made the connection btwn. peanuts and a vaccine that used peanuts as a substrate or something.

    “My Atomic Bomb Findings” is an interesting deep dive – suppose there are no nukes at all?


  2. This will leave Russia with only one thing in mind? CHINA must start a war with Taiwan to distract the West.

    However, this leads to the WICID system in play during war. Deception, but on whose part?

    But that is what war and deception is all about.


  3. I have listened to many dreams people have had regarding a Chinese/Russian invasion of America. One that stood out to me was where the man having the dream noticed presidential election signs in people’s yards. So, if this was legitimate, it falls in line with the general’s thinking.

    1. Yes, I truly believe that is how it will be. Many won’t even believe we are under invasion, just going about their business and chalking up the reports of invading Chinese as “fake news.”


  4. Unleashing weapons (let alone nuclear weapons) directed on unarmed civilians in a city that serves no special military interest or activity (at the time) is an unthinkable warcrime, not an act of war.
    We should not normalize somehow such (hideous/disgusting/abnormal) crimes.


      1. Not as much normalized as…..still gotten away with, misusing “victors” power the exact way psychopaths would do.


  5. We needed honest-broker diplomats in this situation but nowhere in the West are there any. All that represents the West are warmongering grifters who have provoked this situation for the last 10 years (like the Biden family), who have generated a color revolution in Ukraine, deliberately lied to Russia with the Minsk agreements, destroyed every chance at negotiation that Russia has presented last year, starting with Boris Johnson’s sabotage of negotiations back in April/May 2022. But it could have been different, if only we had wiser and much less corrupt leadership.

    Russia is not losing on the battlefield, it’s Ukraine and finally the major media is reluctantly beginning to admit it. It’s becoming obvious that the West is emptying out its arsenals of weapons to throw willy-nilly into this fight, even searching as far as Peru to find Soviet-era weapons that the Ukrainians can use. But strangely some of our shipments of weapons for Ukraine have ended up on the black markets of Nigeria back in December Ukraine is not called the most corrupt nation for nothing.

    We plebians in the West assume our leadership wants peace. No, they do not. War is profit, a real gravy train. Back on Sept 10 2001 Donald Rumfeld announced that 2.3 trillion dollars was missing from the Pentagon accounts. He vowed that day to get to the bottom of it, but the next day Sept 11 swerved all that and the issue of waste and fraud was forgotten as discussed in this old CBS report. Why do you think we’re experiencing so much inflation? We’ve been paying for decades of warfare around the globe and the irony is that we’ve haven’t won any conflict (proxy or otherwise) since 1945. We’re simply in a state of permanent war and that’s policy. See here:
    and here:

    We have NO strategic interests in Ukraine, so why are we there egging on a useless, murderous fight which is destroying Ukraine and draining its manpower and our arsenals, doing everything we can to keep peace away, letting the Ukraine get totally destroyed? For what purpose? Is it now at the point now that certain Western politicians want to save face before the coming defeat of Ukraine?

    And of course, China is watching this and they see our waste of resources, creeping escalations and panic. They see how our “sanctions” did nothing to harm resource-rich Russia and instead strengthened their economy. They see the Global South realigning itself towards the Russia-China axis and away from the West, even Saudi Arabia. Why can’t our leadership understand the damage they caused to the West by their incompetent policies and useless saber-rattling?

    Are we in imminent danger from the Russians or from our utterly irresponsible, hubris-filled and increasingly panicked leadership? If Russia is in fact NOT losing this war, then who really is tempted to nuke whom? We should ask that question.

      Then the angel said to John, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute was seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. And the ten horns and the beast that you saw will hate the prostitute. They will leave her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For Jehovah has put it into their hearts to carry out *His purpose* by uniting to give their kingdom to the Beast, until the words of Jehovah are fulfilled. And the woman you saw”… is Uncle Sam’s great shining city upon a hill that rules over the kings of the earth. Revelation 17:15

  6. God handed Israel over to Babylon as judgment and purification. He sent Jeremiah, Isaiah and Ezekiel to warn but no one would listen. False prophets arose and spoke only ‘positive things.’ God’s true prophets’ warnings were scorned as ‘too negative.’ The did not discern the difference between true and false anymore, but only ‘positive and negative,’ just as today’s church has fallen into the new age trap of ‘good vibes only,’ and thinking that this will change things. Their ‘positive words’ did not ‘speak any good thing into being,’ (which is not possible but is rather witchcraft) and judgment fell all the harder because of them. If they had heeded the ‘negative’ words and warnings of God’s true prophets, it might have helped them however. But alas…. they did not, and we know how that ended… with Israel being given over into the hands of Babylon. History repeats itself. That is all I will say.

    1. Israel was never “handed over” to Babylon. Over the course of several decades those Israelites who didn’t flee to already established colonies (eg Cartago) were deported to Assyria by several Assyrian kings. And most of Judah as well. The ONLY ones left a century later were those few who were imprisoned within the walls of Jerusalem, a one square kilometer starvation pasture, and they were taken captive to Babylon. 2 Kings 17, 18 makes this perfectly clear. But Israelites had been “spreading abroad” ever since (and maybe before) Darda and his brothers went to the north side of the MidTyrrean Sea. But the Israelites deported to Assyria, according to Josephus, were “an immense multitude, not to be estimated by numbers.” And they didn’t stay there but went through the Caucus (Caucasian) Mountains into Europe. I could go on and on but rather simply say how amazing is the ignorance of so many.


  7. Thanks Leo! Jesus Christ told us that there’d be days like this, but then to Look up, for Our redemption draws nigh. I don’t really believe in the “Beam Me up Jesus” rapture, but Psalm 91 explains it!

  8. Jesus said it would be like this….You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, BUT SEE YOU ARE NOT ALARMED. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. (emphasis mine).
    Setting up for Ezek 38:1-4? Maybe just maybe. Stay safe little Flock and keep looking UP!

  9. Hi Leo, fantastic synopsis of the current state of affairs regarding Russia and the CCP. I read somewhere (someone’s opinion) that the USA is slated to lose the coming conflict so the Global Reset is swallowed much easier by Americans as a whole….. the Globalist’s whom by in large control the governments and that are led I believe by Satanic forces are positioning all the chess pieces for this to play out.

    As for nuclear this could be prophetic as in “ their tongues and eye sockets will rot out”. This sick and dying civilization of unbelievers continue to be fooled by the bread and circuses pumped into every facet of their lives.

    Thank you for this and every article, with which you try to enlighten a dark world.
    P.S. I try to share with those in my circle that are awake, it’s so very difficult for the others 🫣
