Biden-Putin Meeting: No to Nuclear War, Yes to Wars That Can Lead to Nuclear War

The Russian delegation hoped that "the United States does not intend to engage in a conflict with Russia using conventional weapons"

July 14. /TASS/. Russia intended to declare inadmissibility of any war with the US, not just a nuclear one, in a statement following the Putin-Biden summit in Geneva.

This position was expressed by the Russian side at a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Council of Foreign Ministers in Dushanbe on Wednesday, according to sources in the Russian delegation.

According to the agency’s interlocutors, at the meeting, it was stated that the Putin-Biden agreements of June 16 on the inadmissibility of unleashing a nuclear war and launching an integrated dialogue on strategic stability and future arms control were a rather positive step.

According to the sources, the Russian delegation said that Moscow wanted “to state the inadmissibility of any war with the US, not only a nuclear one, considering the risks of it descending into a nuclear conflict between Russia and the US,” but the parties “so far agreed that it is precisely a nuclear war that was inadmissible.”

As the source emphasized, the Russian delegation hoped that “the United States does not intend to engage in a conflict with Russia using conventional weapons.”

At the meeting, the Russian side also noted that for years, Washington has been chipping away the system of arms control, pointing to the US unilaterally exiting the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and the Open Skies Treaty. At the same time, it was noted that “thanks to the responsible position of the Biden administration, it was possible to preserve the new START Treaty” which has been extended for five years.

The talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Joe Biden took place on June 16 in Geneva. This was their first face-to-face meeting as heads of state and also the first Russian-US summit since 2018.

In a joint statement, the leaders emphasized that the parties intended to launch an integrated bilateral strategic stability dialogue “that will be substantive and robust.”

Additionally, Moscow and Washington intend to begin consultations touching on cybersecurity, an exchange of prisoners, and arms control.

Here are some very interesting comments from the American Admiral in charge of USSTRATCOM about how the United States needs to prepare for a nuclear war:

The leap toward a global nuclear catastrophe is more likely than it has been since the early 1990s when the Soviet Union and the United States were facing off against each other particularly since Washington is feeling increasingly threatened as the multipolar world evolves.

This admiral is a typical Pentagon parasite. He must find enemies when the only enemy is him and his fellow insane Annapolis graduates. He is a war criminal willing to use nukes on a first strike basis. Get rid of these war mongers in uniform; he has no idea of duty to one’s country, other than to start another needless and unnecessary war, so his paycheck will keep rolling in no matter how many sailors die under his negligent command.

Hot war or cold war, the money continues to flow to the central bankers endlessly.

The Russian government just does not understand how to deal with overt criminals who have dropped the pretense of diplomacy.

Controlling a nuclear war is like trying to control a super critical reaction after it happens. The answer to that is a no! duh. Like what happened in Japan during the 9.0 earthquake, it literally wobbled the earth on it’s axis. A nuclear war will knock earth degrees off axis, and likely change trajectory and spin of earth through solar system. This is not hyperbole, a matter of physics. A whole bunch of Beiruit-scale incidents is not maintainable, and we know the scale of big intercontinental exchange, this is not sustainable.

Now people would be beyond mad to press for global war. The earth is going through early stages of geomagnetic pole reversal. This alone will likely reduce humanity by 50% within the next fifty years.

It is time now world leaders grow up and put on big kid pants, before destable minds drive humanity to the brink of an unavoidable ELE.

This the time for global leaders to join hands and compassionately stear human kind towards a survivable future.

Russians are peace loving people who have never started a war but have successfully ended many. Not to be confused with the Bolcheviks from New York’s east side led by a guy named Braunstein who was employed by the Rochchilds.
