(PresidentialHill.com)- Last week, United States intelligence officials warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin is so desperate to bring an end to the invasion of Ukraine that he is considering setting off a tactical nuclear weapon in Ukraine.
The heads of the National Security Agency, CIA, FBI, and the Defense Intelligence Agency all spoke at a House Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday, warning that Putin is getting angry with the lack of progress his military is making in Ukraine. The officials revealed how as many as 4,000 Russian troops have been killed by Ukrainian fighters so far, and that Putin is getting angry that he has so far been unable to take control of the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev.
Disturbingly, the nation’s top intelligence officials believe that Putin may become so desperate that he will drop a nuclear warhead on Ukraine to end the conflict once and for all.
Take a look at the committee hearing here:
William Burns, the director of the CIA, explained how Russian military doctrine says that the best way to de-escalate is to escalate and that dropping a nuclear weapon would fit that bill.
Lieutenant General Scott Berrier who leads the Defense Intelligence Agency at the Pentagon also warned that Putin has spent years investing in tactical nuclear weapons, and that he believes Putin when he says his weapons are on “high alert.”
Just great. Not even two years into the Biden presidency and the economy is ruined and we’re on the brink of WWIII.
