In a game of “nuclear chicken”, one of the potential outcomes is that everybody loses. We have reached a point where nuclear annihilation is just one mistake away, and that should deeply alarm all of us. But as I discussed in a previous article, most people don’t seem to care. Instead, most people just seem to assume that our leaders have everything under control and that they know exactly what they are doing. Unfortunately, the truth is that they are completely nuts. They just decided to escalate the war in Ukraine again, and they are dragging us to the brink of nuclear conflict. Of course once a nuclear war starts, the option of choosing new leaders will be gone.
This week, it is being reported that the Russians have just completed the construction of the “first batch” of Poseidon doomsday weapons…
A first batch of Poseidon nuclear-capable underwater drones for the Project 09852 special-purpose nuclear-powered submarine Belgorod has been manufactured, a source close to the Russian military and defense industry told TASS on Monday.
“The first batch of Poseidon ammunition has been manufactured and will be soon delivered to special-purpose nuclear-powered submarine Belgorod,” the source said.
Up to this point, military experts were concerned about what Poseidon drones could potentially do someday if they were ever built and deployed.
But now they are on the verge of being operational.
When most people hear the word “drone”, they think of something very small. But these Poseidon drones are actually the largest torpedoes that have ever been created in the history of the world by a wide margin. In fact, we are being told that each one is more than 60 feet long…
According to Russian sources and Western intelligence, it’s enormous. It weighs more than 200,000 pounds, has a diameter of around 6 feet, and a length of more than 60 feet. It’s so big that the Belgorod can only carry six of them. This would make it the largest torpedo ever developed and deployed by any country in the world.
These giant drones have been designed to carry nuclear warheads, and they can quietly travel underwater for thousands of miles until they reach their destinations.
If we have a nuclear war with Russia, the Russians will almost certainly use them against us. The following is a short excerpt from my new book…
The “Poseidon” is actually a submersible drone. It can travel underwater for more than 5,000 miles, and once it arrives at the target it can simply park there until it is given the command to detonate.
In fact, there could be”Poseidons” parked right off our coastlines right now and we would never know it.
It has been reported that some Russian officials have said that the Poseidon “can be equipped with a 100 megaton weapon”.
If such a weapon was detonated underwater, it would create an absolutely massive radioactive tsunami that would go inland for many, many miles.
Theoretically, the Russians could deploy Poseidons to all of our major coastal cities and detonate them all simultaneously.
Just take a few moments to think about what that would mean.
Such a weapon could destroy New York City in the blink of an eye.
If such a conflict were to occur, it would mean the end of our civilization as we know it today.
So you would think that leaders on both sides would be looking for a peaceful solution to this crisis while it is still possible.
But instead, both sides just continue to escalate matters.
On Wednesday, it was being reported that the United States has decided to send 31 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, and Germany will be chipping in with 14 Leopard 2 tanks.
45 tanks will certainly not turn the tide of the war. In recent days the Russians have advanced on several fronts, and at this point they have captured the entire town of Soledar…
Ukraine confirmed on Wednesday its troops had withdrawn from Soledar in eastern Ukraine, almost two weeks after Russian troops said they had captured the small salt-mining town.
“In order to preserve the lives of service personnel, the Defence Forces withdrew from Soledar,” military spokesman Serhiy Cherevatyi was quoted as saying by state broadcaster Suspilne.
Even if the Ukrainians can figure out how to properly use them, 45 new tanks will not stop the Russians from continuing to advance.
But these new tanks will definitely make the Russians even angrier.
Originally Germany was not planning on sending any tanks, and now that they have reversed course Vladimir Solovyov is suggesting that military bases inside German territory are “legitimate targets”…
‘It’s time to send a clear, resolute message that we now consider Germany a direct party to the conflict, rekindling memories of WW2.
‘German tanks appearing will definitely mean we consider German territory, military bases and other sites as legitimate targets.
And Russian television personality Yevgeny Satanovsky has just said that he believes that it is time to flatten the Bundestag…
He said: “German tanks with crosses on their armour will again march across Ukraine attacking Russian soldiers.
“I have a natural reaction to this – the Soviet Union bombed Berlin in 1941.
“And to me this is a signal that the Reichstag, or Bundestag, which now replaces the Reichstag, simply should not remain standing any longer.
“Flat, slightly radioactive, melted-down ground [will remain in its place].”
Of course many in the western world are making highly irresponsible statements as well.
For example, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock made headlines all over the globe when she publicly admitted that “we are fighting a war against Russia”.

What an incredibly foolish thing to say.
How did someone like that get into such an important position in the first place?
Of course the same thing could be said about dozens of our most important officials in Washington.
We currently have the worst collection of leaders in the history of the western world, and they are telling us that there is no other option other than complete and total military victory in Ukraine.
On the other side, the Russians truly believe that they are facing an existential struggle for the future of their society. To give you a better idea of what the Russians are really thinking, let me share with you an excerpt from a transcript of a speech that Vladimir Putin gave just a few months ago…
“In fact, they spit on the natural right of billions of people, most of humanity, to freedom and justice, to determine their own future on their own. Now they have completely moved to a radical denial of moral norms, religion, and family.
“Let’s answer some very simple questions for ourselves. I now want to return to what I said, I want to address all the citizens of the country – not only to those colleagues who are in the hall – to all the citizens of Russia: do we want to have, here, in our country, in Russia, parent number one, number two, number three instead of mom and dad – have they gone made out there? Do we really want perversions that lead to degradation and extinction to be imposed on children in our schools from the primary grades? To be drummed into them that there are various supposed genders besides women and men, and to be offered a sex change operation? Do we want all this for our country and our children? For us, all this is unacceptable, we have a different future, our own future.
“I repeat, the dictatorship of the Western elites is directed against all societies, including the peoples of the Western countries themselves. This is a challenge for everyone. Such a complete denial of man, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, the suppression of freedom acquiring the features of a “reverse religion” [the opposite of what the religion is] – outright Satanism. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ, denouncing the false prophets, says: By their fruits you shall know them. And these poisonous fruits are already obvious to people – not only in our country, in all countries, including many people in the West itself.”
The Russians believe that they simply cannot afford to lose this war.
Western leaders also believe that they simply cannot afford to lose this war.
And both sides are armed with nuclear weapons.
This isn’t going to end well.
If you have not been thinking about where you would like to be located during a nuclear conflict, you might want to start looking at some maps.
We are getting closer to the unthinkable with each passing day, and at this point our leaders have no intention of changing course.
