As Ukraine disaster continues unabated and THE WEST commits to sending ever more sophisicated arms to assist in defending the country, we are seeing unthinkable headlines permeate into the mainstream media regarding the possibility of a dirty bomb detonation potentially from both sides in a dramatic escalation of the conflict. I have posted the Biden statement below regarding this.
History has taught us that lies are the norm in wartime so one has to take anything in our bought and sold media being posted with a grain of salt.
It is my contention that it serves the US more than Russia as midterms loom to play on the dirty bomb story. If indeed the Republicans humiliate the Dems across the board as I firmly believe they will do short of rampant fraud, then a potential exists for the individual states to declare emergencies (Illinois still under emergency per Pritzker) that in theory could force mail in balloting and crush in person voting by virtue of an alleged national emergency shutdown. Note there is no Federal law that allows for this so it would be enforced state by state.
But why would Putin detonate a dirty bomb NOW? One could argue that his battlefield losses forcing the issue but another key question looms? Why would he do anything to help the feckless administration of Joe Biden at this point? As an ex KGB guy Putin acutely aware of peripheral impacts in his strategy and I would think that it serves his purpose better to do everything in his power to thwart any Democratic victory on any level for one simple reason. When Republicans take over many have stated desire to halt the over the top aid to Ukraine which could be the most advantageous move Putin could make at this point.
Food for thought 2 weeks out from 11/8
