Putin Steps Up Nuclear Threat

Since its inception, the chosen “enemy” of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the reason for its existence, has been a nuclear Russia. In the good old days of the Soviet Union, the bogeyman was known as that rather than Holy Mother Russia, but the enemy was defined as eastern Europe whether the designation was real or not.

Over seven decades later, the Russians are working at living up to that enemy status by simulating war games on the edge of NATO influence in Europe.

Russia carried out ominous simulated nuclear missile strikes this week on the border with the European Union and NATO, according to reports.

The Kremlin confirmed the war games Wednesday in Kaliningrad, a small Baltic Sea enclave sandwiched between EU nations Poland and Lithuania, both also members of NATO, according to the Moscow Times.

It included simulated “electronic launches” of nuclear-capable Iskander mobile ballistic missile systems, the independent paper said, citing a defense ministry statement.

The Russian forces practiced multiple strikes at targets imitating launchers of missile systems, airfields, protected infrastructure, military equipment, and command posts of a mock enemy, the statement said.

If the Russians want not to be the enemy of the west, this is not the best way to go about it, that’s for sure.

Military personnel also roleplayed avoiding “a possible retaliatory strike” — as well as “actions in conditions of radiation and chemical contamination,” the statement reportedly stressed.

The announcement came on the 70th day of Moscow’s military action in the pro-Western country, with thousands killed and more than 13 million displaced in the worst refugee crisis in Europe since World War II.

The simulated strikes came after repeated threats that Russia’s war on Ukraine could lead to full nuclear war.

Oh, please, let’s hope not. We still do have the photos and stories of the aftermath of what two nuclear bombs did to Japan. There is a reason none have been dropped since then.

Hopefully, now as always seemed to happen during the years of the actual Cold War, cool heads will prevail in this conflict.
