Western leaders have always used the fear of nuclear armageddon as a control mechanism, a looming threat used to justify political agendas and the demonization of certain countries.
It now appears the threat of nuclear armageddon is no longer some distant nightmare, but a reality.
As Russia mobilizes hundreds of thousands of troops, declaring annexation of parts of Ukraine – the Western establishment media is banging the war drums more than ever.
This comes as President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Ukraine applied for membership in NATO, a central tipping point.
Retired Virginia State Senator and retired Marine Col. Richard Black warned in an open letter on Tuesday that “globalists are marching us relentlessly toward this nuclear Armageddon.”
“There would have been no war had we not overthrown the democratically-elected government of Ukraine by violently ousting President Yanukovych in 2014. We promoted war by flooding Ukraine with massive arms shipments afterwards.”

Black added: “the US could have achieved peace by simply pressing Ukraine to implement the 2014 Minsk Peace Agreements which it had signed, establishing a clear framework for settling outstanding issues peacefully. Ukraine promised to implement the Minsk agreements but chose instead to make war on the Donbass for the next seven years.”
NATO chose war over peace.
“NATO had ample opportunity for peace but deliberately chose war. The US realized that, with Russia’s back to the wall, it would have no choice to but to attack. In 2007, US Ambassador to Russia William Burns pointedly warned that movement toward absorbing Ukraine into NATO might well trigger war between Ukraine and Russia. Nonetheless, the Obama administration overthrew the Ukrainian president and flooded in weapons, knowing that doing so would trigger war,” Black said.
Black accused elites of making “war profits even if it means gambling the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the globe.”
“Should we annihilate the world’s population to intervene in a border war where the US has no vital national interest?” the former senator asked.
He then called for an immediate end to the war in Ukraine, making the country a neutral, non-aligned state, “just as we did during the Cold War with Austria in 1955.”
The former senator’s plea to avoid war fell on deaf ears as Zelensky’s declared intent to apply for expedited NATO membership amid Putin’s annexation of 15% of Ukraine.
Based on Article 5, any acceptance of Ukraine into NATO would automatically trigger a Russia-West world war (WWIII).
Putin said on Friday the US created a “precedent” by using nuclear weapons against Japan during WW2.
