The brink of nuclear Armageddon? as Elon Musk Warns of World War III
Four headlines caught my eye recently. I’m going to lay them out and see if you notice any correlation…
📰 Why Did the Biden Admin Just Buy $290M Worth of Anti-Radiation Drugs for Nuclear Emergencies? [via TownHall]
📰 Biden Says Risk of Nuclear Armageddon’ is Highest Since 1962 Crisis [via New York Times]
📰 Zelensky calls for ‘preventive action’ to deter Russian nuclear strikes [via The Hill]
📰 Elon Musk Warns of World War III [via TheStreet]
Let’s be clear… Nuclear war is so incredibly unlikely thanks to the mutually assured destruction that it would cause for all sides. But the spidey senses are definitely tingling.
What are Joe Biden and the western global elites up to and why are they intentionally trying to worry Americans about nuclear war with these coordinated news stories?
Your guess is as good as mine.
So let’s talk about the last article: Elon Musk Warns of World War III
Western democracies are united in their condemnation of Russia following its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
The war that has since followed has been unanimously criticized by NATO, which has provided crucial military and logistical aid to Kyiv since the start of the conflict.
For the countries of the West, to end the war, which has already caused thousands of deaths and the displacement of millions of others, Russia, the aggressor, must withdraw from Ukraine.
Musk has just disrupted that consensus by proposing a peace plan perceived as pro-Russian.
Elon is quoted as saying “I’m a big fan of Ukraine, but not of WW3”
Musk explains that his position was motivated by the fear of a world war, a fear which he had already exposed the day before by saying that the Russia-Ukraine conflict could escalate into an all-out war with enormous consequences not only for Ukraine but also for the world.
The CEO of Tesla proposed that Ukraine recognize that its region of Crimea, annexed in 2014 by Russia, is Russian territory and that Kyiv renounces its plans to become a member of NATO and the European Union.
Unsurprisingly, the plan was massively rejected by the Ukrainian authorities and the Ukrainians who see it as a request to capitulate. This is also the opinion in political circles in the West.
“Suggesting we end the Russian invasion by simply giving Russia parts of Ukraine – after all the suffering – is dumb,” lambasted US senator Lindsey Graham on Twitter on October 5. “It is also an affront to the bravery of the Ukrainians fighting to defend their homeland.”
After this intense criticism, Graham gave a lesson in history and diplomacy to Musk.
“It was an agreement signed by Russia that included protecting Crimea and the Donbas as part of Ukraine. If you want peace in Ukraine — which we ALL do — simply demand Russian honor the boundaries they agreed to in 1994 and withdraw their forces,” Graham added.
He continued: “To do otherwise is to legitimize a bait and switch by Russia and a signal to other bad actors to take what you want – by force! If Elon Musk and others want the world to continue to be in chaos, then by all means capitulate to Putin and reward his aggression.”
The Musk Response:
But the billionaire is not one of the CEOs who do not respond to attacks. The Musk brand is based on singularity and attacking regardless of the strength and power of the opponent. Musk strikes blow for blow and he has just proven it again by answering Graham point by point.
“Assuming you believe that the will of the people matters, we should, in any given conflict region, support the will of those who live there,” the tycoon responded. “Most of Ukraine unequivocally wants to be part of Ukraine, but some eastern portions have Russian majorities and prefer Russia.”
He then accompanied his remarks with an electoral map of Ukraine from 2012 – before the annexation of Crimea by Russia – whose aim was to show that there are regions of the country which are pro-Russian.
“Obviously, not everyone who voted for the pro-Russia party wanted to join Russia, but it would also be inaccurate to say that none did,” the billionaire added.
World War III:
This post caused supporters of Ukraine and Russia to accuse each other of bad behavior since 2012. To which Musk replied: “There are no angels in war.”
But all these explanations do not calm the critics who continue to corner him.
“The @elonmusk situation is clearly getting out of hand, and it seems like pride and vanity play a behemoth role in his attempt to pose as an expert on #Ukraine. Just stop, Elon. It’s ok to admit that you overdid smth. Just stop,” asked the Kyiv Post, which describes itself as the top international source of English-language news about Ukraine since 1995.
