Experts react to Biden's words about the inadmissibility of unleashing a nuclear war

64

On the night of December 30-31, a telephone conversation took place between Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden. The conversation lasted about 50 minutes and did not have a public part. Thus, its results can only be judged by the statements made later by the official representatives of the parties.


Aide to the President of the Russian Federation Yuri Ushakov said that the American leader has repeatedly emphasized the inadmissibility of unleashing a nuclear war, the newspaper reports. Interfax... In addition, according to the Russian functionary, Joe Biden assured Vladimir Putin that the United States did not intend to deploy an offensive nuclear weapon in Ukraine.

In turn, the White House described the conversation between the two presidents as meaningful. A representative of the Washington administration during a special briefing said that it is dialogue that is the best way to resolve the current geopolitical situation.

At the same time, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki noted that the American leader had warned his Russian counterpart about a decisive response from the United States and its allies in the event of an invasion of Ukraine.

Regarding the expansion of NATO in the eastern direction (we are talking about joining the Alliance of Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia), Washington stressed that this decision should be made directly by independent states, and not by a third party deciding for them. Thus, the United States apparently "hinted" that they do not intend to unquestioningly implement the measures proposed by the Russian President to ensure strategic security.

Experts, reacting to Biden's statements about the inadmissibility of nuclear war, note that the United States becomes more accommodating only at the moment when it realizes the real existential threat. In this case, the White House begins to remember that the United States and Russia are responsible for world stability and security and are ready to sit down at the negotiating table. But as soon as the understanding of the threat evaporates, they return to their usual practice: "We are the world hegemon, so you must do what we say."

        What is it, Nazarius, your expectations are fast. It is naive to expect that a can with GDP like this, cracking eye to eye, will settle all the contradictions. All the main graters will be held from January 9 to 13, with trades, arguments, threats and smiles, and only after that it will be clear where they came, who caved in, and who was on horseback.
        Chickens are pinched in the fall. We will wait.

            HM. If you really bothered to read the full text of the requirements of Russia, then you probably noticed that they (for adoption in the full set of requirements) are a priori unacceptable. It turns out that Russia knew in advance that they would not be accepted and that there would be "bargaining" on certain points. In principle, this is a normal practice, initially to make excessive demands, so that in the course of the bidding, "give up" some part and leave those that are really important. The opposing side, having received the "planned concessions", will regard this as a victory for its diplomacy, while the other side prepared in advance to throw off this butor, that's all.

    What's going on around ??? Among those who, to a conversation, are not invited and among those who cannot even be there?
    And different things happen, someone is chatting, also different and incessantly, someone is tensely silent ... and to the rest, that's just his spirit and shares, with those who are still ready to endure it at least somehow.

        Who can they get from? From Russia? Do not be ridiculous .. America joined in with only one purpose - to get something for free, through negotiations. They will try on promises to break the alliance between Russia and China, prohibiting types of weapons that they do not have, etc. They will not give up anything just because they can.

      It burns up not only in Washington DC or the District of Columbia ... everything is much wider there ...
      According to the data provided, from April to July, about a million Americans changed their place of residence. At the same time, according to statistics, there is an outflow of the population from the liberal "blue" states. Most of the citizens who decided to move chose the conservative "red" states in the south of the country for this. Twitter user @birb_k created a Census Bureau data visualization based on state party affiliation ... Internal migration clearly demonstrates the polarization of American society. Representatives of the opposing political forces have reached the extreme point of rejection of their opponents, which results in the emergence of "party" migration. Against this background, opinion polls look especially alarming, according to which more and more Americans support the idea of ​​dividing the country into conservative and liberal States of America. https://riafan.ru/1576686-amerikancy-massovo-begut-na-yug-iz-sinikh-shtatov

      how serious all this is ... but then the confrontation between black and white, then red and blue ... somehow all this - "something is wrong in this kingdom"

    The latter will lose little from the rupture of relations between Russia and the United States. And the West in general.
    What do our airlines fly with? I think everyone knows ...
    Draconian sanctions from the states will hit the most sensitive places for Russia, seriously weakening many areas in the state and the ruble exchange rate.

    The Yankees will not accept this ultimatum (for this and the calculation), and even if they do, we will still do what we have in mind.

    Experts, reacting to Biden's statements about the inadmissibility of nuclear war, note that the United States becomes more accommodating only at the moment when it realizes the real existential threat.

    I don't see any connection. The strategic arsenal has practically not changed - both we and the United States have for the most part all the same nuclear weapons as before. Individual hypersonic weather patterns do not make it due to the already high ability of the ICBM to overcome a modern missile defense system. What existential threat are we talking about? The world has been walking under the nuclear sword of Damocles since the late 50s.

    This does not untie, show tolerance and move away from our borders.

    It is not necessary to negotiate with mattress toppers, but to hammer them into the Stone Age. Yalta 2 is possible only if it is held by the Russian Federation, China, Cuba or the USA, EU, Turkey. You can't beat the Yankees with words. hi

    An analysis of the current capabilities of the Pentagon by the US and Civil Society Think Tank, Loder Institute, University of Pennsylvania, conducted in 2021, showed that today America's actual capability has shrunk to 470 bayonets. This allows you to count on the simultaneous management of only two small conflicts and not too high intensity.

    It seems that the United States, apart from Russia, has no one to talk to about nuclear war, non-use of nuclear weapons and other "global things." Indeed, it is foolish to talk to the British, French, Chinese about not using nuclear weapons if the US invades Britain or France, just like China. The named countries will undoubtedly use nuclear weapons against the United States without even thinking about the consequences for all mankind, or, even more so, about the citizens of the United States. Your business, your own territory, your interests are much more valuable than the death of a million or two people. So the United States has chosen a "victim" that can first be threatened and then talked to from a position of strength. It's Russia. In Russia, people are gullible, we think about humanity, but we have forgotten our interests, as if they did not exist at all, so we get either sanctions, or some old man’s threat from the White House, or hysteria from German politicians who have not received much love or British clowns.
