It’s not just China acting upon the world stage. While the Red Chinese seemingly prepare themselves to invade Taiwan and attempt to crush the valiant Republic of China once and for all, Putin’s Russia is, according to leaks from within the government, preparing for war with Ukraine.
Supposedly, the Russians have prepared a massive force of nearly 200,000 troops that stand ready to blitz into Ukraine in early 2022. According to Fox News:
The U.S. is taking recent signaling from the Kremlin very seriously, and does not consider the matter a bluff, a senior U.S. defense official told Fox News.
Russia already has about 100,000 troops stationed along its border with Ukraine, the defense official said.
[…]The planned Ukraine offensive for 2022 would involve about double the number of Russian troops that participated in a military exercise near the Ukraine border last spring.
“The plans involve extensive movement of 100 battalion tactical groups with an estimated 175,000 personnel, along with armor, artillery and equipment,” a Biden administration official told Fox News.
Senior US defense official tells @foxnews US intelligence sees signs that #Putin plans to invade #Ukraine on multi fronts using 175,000 troops in early 2022. The US govt is taking Putin’s signaling seriously. They are not treating it as a bluff.— Benjamin Hall (@BenjaminHallFNC) December 4, 2021
However, while the usual suspects are quite worried, many non-Pantsuit Empire toadies have a far different view of the situation, as ZeroHedge reports in a recent article. In fact, some speculate it’s all just idle talk meant to play up the Russian threat so that Biden can have an easy “win” when he meets with Putin:
FALSE ALARM! “Russia planning massive, 175,000-troop offensive vs Ukraine” https://t.co/QoCmxsErmV?— Ray McGovern (@raymcgovern) December 4, 2021
Post highlights scary “unclassified” satellite intel (aka official leak). Not to worry: here’s the script:
Biden will warn Putin at virtual mtg next week and THWART Putin war plan.
ZeroHedge backs that opinion up, saying:
mere days ago Pentagon spokesman John Kirby obviously downplayed the ‘invasion threat’ from Russia. “We’re watching it very closely,” he said in a Tuesday press briefing, adding: “We don’t envision any US military intervention in this conflict.” As we described previously, variations of “we’re monitoring the situation” from the Pentagon do not at all suggest US defense leaders have really convinced a military assault on Ukraine is actually coming.
Though the repeat accusations against Moscow over the past weeks have been done without concrete evidence – something the Kremlin has pointed out (amid continuing reports noting Russian forces have been “growing”… in Russia) – the new Washington Post reporting is at least attempting to point to some level of “evidence”, in the form of satellite photos:
The unclassified U.S. intelligence document obtained by the Post, which includes satellite photos, shows Russian forces massing in four locations. Currently, 50 battlefield tactical groups are deployed, along with newly arrived tanks and artillery, according to the document.
But again, there’s unanimous agreement that the ‘invasion forces’ in question are all stationed and positioned well within Russian territory, in some cases deep inside the country’s sovereign borders.
Others on Twitter used the excuse to make fun of how wokeness has taken over Western militaries and would make it hard for them to defeat the Russians if it ever came to that:
I guess we’ll see if Ukraine is diverse enough to fight them off. https://t.co/jwv6McqnxU— Jesse Kelly (@JesseKellyDC) December 4, 2021
So, true, farce, or simply an attempt to expose Western weakness, it’s not entirely clear what’s going on with Russia and Ukraine. Some say war is on the horizon, others say the Deep State is using purposefully misleading and doomsaying reports to push for war with the Russians. Only time will tell.
