For weeks now the Biden administration, hopelessly compromised and looking at political annihilation in the coming midterm elections, has flirted with disaster. Desperate to regain credibility and to counter the obvious impotence of the man in the White House, Joe’s mandarins have made all sorts of vaguely threatening pronouncements regarding Ukraine and shoved forward a wide range of U.S. military assets into Eastern Europe.
The obvious danger of stumbling into war has been disregarded. Men who have never heard a shot fired in anger, never put their lives on the line, and have no earthly idea what strategy they are pursuing have put the whole world in danger. We may be about to pay the price for that incompetence.
According to Russian state media, a U.S. Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarine was detected today in Russian territorial waters off the Kuril Islands. Per Russian reports, the vessel was found submerged near the island of Urup while Russia’s Pacific Fleet was holding exercises in the area. Russian vessels then contacted the submarine, warned that it was in the country’s territorial waters, and ordered it to surface immediately.
