In a post on his social media site, Truth Social, former President Donald Trump raised the alarm about an impending nuclear war.
Biden revealed on Wednesday that Ukraine will acquire 31 modernized M1 Abrams tanks worth $400 million from the United States in the coming months. Ultimately, a diplomatic impasse with Germany was overcome on the most efficient means of assisting Kiev in its struggle with Russia.
Biden congratulated Germany for supplying Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks, proclaiming, “Germany has really stepped up.”
As a result of the announcement, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov issued the following statement: “There are constant statements from European capitals and Washington that the sending of various weapons systems to Ukraine, including tanks, in no way signifies the involvement of these countries or the alliance in hostilities in Ukraine.”
“We categorically disagree with this, and in Moscow, everything that the alliance and the capitals I mentioned are doing is seen as direct involvement in the conflict. We see that this is growing,” he said in a press conference on Thursday.
Trump is undoubtedly ringing the alarm at a time when the majority of politicians are clamoring for conflict.
“FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES,” he warned on TRUTH Social. “Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Donald Trump appears to be one of the only folks aware of how near we are to nuclear war.
The Russian administration has made it quite clear that they do not play games.
“This extremely dangerous decision takes the conflict to a new level of confrontation,” Sergei Nechayev, the Russian Ambassador to Germany, declared on Wednesday. Nechayev also noted Leopard tanks being sent to Ukraine represented Germany’s “final refusal to recognize its historical responsibility to our people for Nazi crimes.”
Politico claimed that three persons with knowledge of the proposal believe the U.S. intends to transfer the more advanced M1A2 variant of the Abrams main battle tank to Kyiv rather than the older A1 version now in storage.
According to reports, the 31 tanks that will be supplied to Ukraine will not have the most recent armor composition.
“The A2 version has more sophisticated optics and controls than the older A1 version, which the Army intends to retire in the next few years. Outwardly similar to the A1, the A2 has a redesigned commander’s weapon station with improved optics for targeting, and an independent thermal viewer that allows the commander to independently scan for targets in all weather and battlefield conditions,” Politico explained.
The most radical changes are on the inside, which has been redesigned to take advantage of new technology. The control mechanisms are digitized, most notably a new inter-vehicle information system that allows vehicles to exchange information continuously and automatically. Using the new technology, commanders can rapidly track the location of friendly vehicles, identify enemy positions and process artillery requests.
But federal policy forbids the export of Abrams with classified armor packages used by the U.S. military, which includes depleted uranium, according to a fourth person with knowledge of the policy. The U.S. strips the vehicles of this secret armor “recipe” before selling them to other countries. There are other armor packages the U.S. can provide for foreign military sales customers.
