Armstrong Economics Blog/Ukraine Re-Posted Feb 10, 2023 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, does your computer suggest that Russia will launch nuclear weapons on Ukraine?
Your computer seems to be the only straight no-nonsense in the middle of this insanity.
ANSWER: The West is the aggressor and they are out to destroy Russia pretending that they are saving the planet because it is a major fossil fuel producer. That is not nonsense, It is real.
What I can say is that there is an element inside Russia who have been pressing for them to just nuke Ukraine pointing out that when the US did that to Japan, it ended the war. They see this now as a war against NATO, which has been perfectly fine if every Ukrainian citizen dies for their end goal. To appear more human than the United States, Russia would give the civilians 72 hours to leave the area. They would justify themselves by pointing to the USA which gave no effective notice to civilians other than listing a number of cities and not really explaining what would happen with one nuclear bomb. It gave the impression of just bombing where people could take shelter below ground. Russia would make it clear this is a tactical or strategic nuclear weapon so leave now. Zelensky would be the first to flee.
The West has been pushing for war and the US/NATO have been hoping to destroy Russia conventionally and then just walk into Moscow to a TICJER-TAPE PARADE that they expected and never got. These people are delusional. Russia is now well aware that this is a strategic war to destroy their country once and for all. The attack on the pipeline demonstrates that this was a permanent action to cut off all fossil fuel sales to Europe. The West is pushing Russia into a corner and they now realize this is to destroy Russia as a nation. That will not leave many options. The US and NATO are not prepared to leave Russia still standing as a superpower and one of the largest producers of fossil fuels.
The US leaflet they dropped on some 50 cities read:
The ‘LeMay Leaflet’
“Read this carefully as it may save your life or the life of a relative or friend. In the next few days, some or all of the cities named on the reverse side will be destroyed by American bombs. These cities contain military installations and workshops or factories which produce military goods. We are determined to destroy all of the tools of the military clique which they are using to prolong this useless war. But, unfortunately, bombs have no eyes. So, in accordance with America’s humanitarian policies, the American Air Force, which does not wish to injure innocent people, now gives you warning to evacuate the cities named and save your lives. America is not fighting the Japanese people but is fighting the military clique which has enslaved the Japanese people. The peace which America will bring will free the people from the oppression of the military clique and mean the emergence of a new and better Japan. You can restore peace by demanding new and good leaders who will end the war. We cannot promise that only these cities will be among those attacked but some or all of them will be, so heed this warning and evacuate these cities immediately.”
