At the New York residence of James Murdoch, the son of media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, President Joe Biden warned of the “attack” on American institutions and discussed the threat posed by Russian President Vladimir Putin using nuclear weapons.
Since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis, “we have not faced the spectre of Armageddon,” Biden declared in New York City.
Biden asserted that Putin is “not kidding” when he discusses the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons at a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. This is due to “his military is — you might say — badly underperforming,” according to Biden.
“I’m attempting to determine what Putin’s off-ramp,” said Biden. “Where does he locate an exit? In what situation does he find himself where he not only loses face but also suffers a considerable loss of authority within Russia?”
“I don’t think there is such thing as the ability to quickly deploy a tactical nuclear bomb and not end up with Armageddon,” Biden reportedly told guests at the event.
With the announcement of the takeover of Ukrainian land, some of which Russia does not control, and the mobilisation of 300,000 reservists to support his faltering invasion, Putin has reaffirmed his nuclear threats.
Earlier, Western leaders were deeply divided by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s threat to use a nuclear bomb in Ukraine if Ukrainian “territorial integrity.”
This is not a bluff, Putin said, adding, “Those who are attempting to extort us with nuclear weapons should realise that the wind may also change in their way.”
