“Putin Not Joking About Using Nuclear Weapons”: Biden

Biden said, “We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis in 1962”

Washington: US President Joe Biden said that since the Cold War world risks nuclear “Armageddon.” He also said that he is trying to find Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “off-ramp” in the Russian Invasion.

Addressing a ‘Democratic party fund-raising event’ Biden said, “We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis in 1962.”

The event was held in New York. At the event, Biden said, “Putin is ‘not joking’ when he threatens to use nuclear weapons to pursue his invasion of Ukraine.”

Biden said that after Cuban Missiles first time we have a direct threat from Nuclear Weapons. Biden said,  “First time since the Cuban missile crisis, we have a direct threat from the use of nuclear weapons if, in fact, things continue down the path they are going.” He made this statement in reference to the nuclear standoff triggered by the Soviet Union stationing missiles in Cuba, within easy range of the United States.

Putin has indirectly stated that he will make use of Nuclear Weapons if he feels that has run out of options to win over Ukrainian Territory.

Experts have stated that this is a relatively small, tactical strike. Speaking of this Biden warns that ‘in a limited area it would still risk triggering a wider conflagration.’

“We’ve got a guy I know fairly well,” Biden said. “Putin’ is not joking when he talks about the potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons, because his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming,” he added.

“I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily (use) a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon,” Biden said.

“I’m trying to figure out what is Putin’s off-ramp. Where does he find a way out? Where does he find himself in a position that he does not, not only lose face but lose significant power within Russia?” Biden said.
