It appears that some Pentagon officials aren’t as anxious to embark on World War III over Russia’s war in Ukraine as one might be led to believe.
Reports from Reuters and Newsweek suggest that some in the military, and others recently retired, do not believe Russian leader Vladimir Putin will launch a chemical attack, as President Biden recently suggested. Nor is Russia using all of its might to crush Ukraine’s resistance.
The question is whether saner heads in the armed forces will prevail over the Deep Staters and media leftists. They can’t wait to see American boys die face down in the mud for “democracy” in a country that just outlawed 11 opposition political parties.
Those military officials, Joe Lauria wrote for Consortium News, are “engaged in a consequential battle with the U.S. State Department and the Congress to prevent a direct military confrontation with Russia, which could unleash the most unimaginable horror of war.”
