President Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan warned Americans in televised interviews on Sunday’s CBS’s Face the Nation and NBC’s Meet the Press (or more accurately “meet the Presstitutes)…to prepare for an all-out war with Russia. 

Sullivan accused Moscow of upping the ante after mobilizing 300,000 reservists to fight the Ukraine War while its President Vladimir Putin, declared that if the “Motherland” was attacked, he would do all they can to protect the country, even using nuclear weapons if necessary. 

Sullivan said that Russian President Vladimir Putin “remains intent…on wiping out the Ukraine people that he does not believe have a right to exist.”

“So he’s going to keep coming and we have to keep coming with weapons, ammunition, intelligence, and all the support we can provide,” Sullivan said. 

TRENDPOST: Sullivan’s comment is a dangerous escalation in wartime propaganda because—regardless of your opinion of Putin—he’s never said anything about wiping out the Ukrainian people. As we, Scott Ritter, and retired U.S. Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor have noted, if Russia wanted to use the full power of its military, it could have turned Kyiv into a crater within days of the invasion’s opening salvo.

Putin has noted this as well and has commented that the Russian offensive has been limited to avoid civilian casualties. However, this has been blackballed by the Western media so as to provide one sine to a complex story.  (See “PUTIN SAYS UKRAINE WANTS WAR, WON’T NEGOTIATE” 20 Sep 2022 and “PUTIN WILL NOT STOP UKRAINE WAR UNTIL HE DECLARES VICTORY” 17 May 2022.)

TRENDPOST: The State Department did not respond to an email inquiry from The Trends Journal seeking clarification for Sullivan’s comment. Furthermore, considering his tough-talk that there would be “catastrophic consequences” taken by the United States if Russia used nuclear weapons if it was attacked… Sullivan indicated that so would the United States. 

Putin, who has said Russians and Ukrainians are one people, said the West is intent on dividing “and ultimately destroying our country,” Sputnik news reported. He said the West’s hope is that Russia disintegrates into “many mortally warring regions and regions.”

Puting continued, “[We talk] about the aggressive policy of a number of the Western elites, who are striving with all their might to maintain their dominance, and for this purpose they are trying to block or suppress any sovereign independent centers of development in order to further brutally impose their will on other countries and nations, to plant their fake values.”

Putin made the comment after announcing the mobilization, which he said is necessary to “protect our Motherland, and its sovereignty and territorial integrity, to ensure the security of our people and people in the liberated territories.”

The Russian president has said it is his goal to come to the aid of people living in the eastern part of Ukraine—Lugansk and Donetsk—who were under attack under the Volodymyr Zelensky regime. He said many already fled. 

“Those who remained—about 5 million people—today are subjected to constant artillery and rocket fire from neo-Nazi militants, who hit hospitals and schools and organized terrorist attacks against civilians. We have no moral right to hand over people close to us to be torn to pieces by executioners, and we cannot but respond to their sincere desire to determine their own fate.”

Putin said the territorial “integrity of our homeland, our independence and freedom will be ensured, I will emphasize this again, with all the means at our disposal. And those who try to blackmail us with nuclear weapons should know that the prevailing winds can turn in their direction.” 

“I want to remind you that our country also has various means of destruction, and some components are more modern than those of the NATO countries,” Putin said.

Another Threat 

Sullivan has issued warnings to Russia before. Weeks before the invasion, when Russian troops were amassing on the border with Ukraine, he said the U.S. would respond decisively. He did not go into detail on Sunday about what he meant by “catastrophic consequences,” but said envoys have spelled it out in greater detail in private channels to the Kremlin. 

Sullivan, who is another carryover from the Obama administration who “failed up,” said it is important that Putin is held accountable for the war crimes Russian troops have committed.

“One man chose this war; one man is directing this war; one man is responsible for this war; that man is Vladimir Putin.”

Sullivan told ABC’s This Week that Russia’s decision to call up reservists and hold referendums in newly controlled areas is not a sign of strength or confidence. 

“Quite the opposite: They’re signs that Russia and Putin are struggling badly,” he said.

He was asked if he believes the Russian people will rise up against Putin.

“At the end of the day, the future of Russian politics is going to be dictated, not by Washington, not by anyone in Europe, but by the people inside Russia,” he said. “And what you are seeing in the streets right now is a deep unhappiness with what Putin is doing.”

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Rumor (history?) has it that the Cold War between the U.S. and Russia, which began in 1947, ended in 1991. But rather than seeking Peace on Earth and keeping relationships respectful, most of America’s politicians and all of the military-industrial complex—and their western counterparts (i.e., “allies”)—have not stopped waging the Cold War.

As we have been reporting since the end of the Cold War—from America’s Gulf War, Kosovo War, Afghan War, Iraq War… to its military interventions in Somalia, Libya, etc., plus its 800 military bases in 70 countries—Russia is a minor war-mongering nation compared to the U.S. track record of killing millions and stealing trillions from its taxpayers to wage these wars.

And, as we have reported in detail since the so-called “Russiagate” was launched by the Democratic Party and its media Presstitutes immediately following Trump’s win of the 2016 election, there has not been one shred of hard evidence proving Russia interfered with the election.

Yet, the drama continues, and most people buy it, just as most have swallowed other lies sold to them by their governments over the centuries.  “Remember the Main”?

As the founder of Occupy Peace & Freedom, as Gerald Celente sees it, to keep peddling hatred between the two nations, rather than creating movements toward peace, is morally, spiritually, and economically destructive. Indeed, America was an ally of Russia in World War II and would not have achieved victory when it did without them.

Yet, following World War II, Russia became its enemy, while Japan and Germany—for which over 400,000 Americans died fighting—became U.S. allies and business partners.
