Thread 1/3

Last night in Ottawa, Canada's U.N. ambassador Bob Rae claimed that Canada's foreign policy is "principled".

I and two other peace activists, @TamaraLorincz & @EnglerYves, disrupted Rae's hypocritical speech.

Here is Tamara denouncing #NATO's proxy war in #Ukraine.

After Tamara denounced NATO's proxy war in Ukraine, Yves Engler condemned Canada's disgraceful voting record at the United Nations.

#cdnpoli #UnitedNations #Haiti #Palestine #nuclearweapons #NATO #Ukraine #UkraineRussiaWar️ @EnglerYves

As I explained in my disruption of Bob Rae, the international human rights community is nearly unanimous that Israel is committing the crime of apartheid, yet Canada's support for #Israel knows no bounds. This makes a mockery of Trudeau's "rules-based order."

A longer thread 🧵 on the question of #Putin and the possible use of #nuclearweapons: During his Valdai-speech, Vladimir Putin dedicated a substantial time to convince the world that Russia is not ready to use nuclear weapons. 1/
He said that Russia is not interested in using a “dirty bomb”: “it makes no sense for us, neither politically nor militarily”. 2/
He also made it clear that Russia does not plan to use nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear power, except in cases prescribed in the Russian Military Doctrine. 3/

I'm increasingly troubled by how Western analysts fail to grasp how differently Eastern Europe sees what is at stake if Ukraine loses. Discussions about #nuclearweapons are a case in point.

Here's a great piece about proliferation by @Nick_L_Miller.…
I agree with prof. Miller, an expert on this topic: proliferation cascade, ie other countries seeking nuclear weapons if they prove useful now, is not the main concern now, and is still unlikely. That's why I haven't discussed it.

But. Much depends on the outcome of this war.
From what I've gathered, Eastern Europe strongly sees war in Ukraine as near-existential. In Eastern Europe, many believe (and not without justification) that the West abandoned them in 1945. Now the threat from the East has returned. And the West seems to hesitate already.

Regarding #nuclearweapons, I believe the following are all true:

1. As long as nuclear weapons remain, there is a risk of a nuclear use

2. Nuclear weapons are unlikely to be used

3. Nuclear use risks escalation to general nuclear war

4. Nuclear escalation isn't automatic
5. Even one nuclear weapon could cause an immense disaster with consequences that are difficult to predict

6. One or few nuclear weapons in themselves are unlikely to cause a disaster even comparable to the Second World War
7. All-out nuclear war could cause the greatest disaster in human history

8. Even all-out nuclear war and its consequences would probably be unable to destroy every society in the Southern Hemisphere

1/6 A #CCP influencer, who has over 7M followers on #Weibo, is calling for #China, #India, #Pakistan, & #NorthKorea to throw
#nuclearweapons together at #NATO countries, esp. the #US to save the world.
What is his rationale? The following is the translation of his entire post:
2/6 The United States + Europe (NATO countries), in terms of territorial area, are at least 3 million square kilometers smaller than #Russia, but their population is Russia's six or seven times, and the density is great. The number of nuclear warheads on both sides is comparable.
3/6 Russia and #Europe are adjacent, so if NATO and Russia really start a nuclear war, throwing nuclear weapons at each other, NATO must be damaged faster, greater - - of course, if the Earth is completely destroyed in this case, that is another story.

I bet Bejing is pissed. So as we all know by now, Medvedev says that Russia can use strategic nuclear weapons to keep Ukraine from liberating Ukrainian land. He didn't beat around the bush about it either. This follows on Putin's remarks about, "not bluffing". What many people
do not realize is how this will play in China. Xi just figured out he is shackled to a rabid dog. A primer on China's nuclear theory is needed. Despite what the US Mil-Ind complex and groups such as Rand like to say there was (as of 10-ish years ago the last time I looked) zero
evidence that China kept warheads mated to delivery systems the way the other P5 members do.…

1/ Dear journalists, I am travelling 4 @ecfr this week. I can't give individual interviews, so here is a 🧵 on what I think about #mobilisation & #nuclearweapons threats.
2/ Mobilisation was rumored for some time, and it is the bigger news. 🇷🇺 occupation forces had issues finding enough personnel for months. Now a lot of contracts from authumn 2021 expire, in November, a lot of 6 month contracts would have expired.
3/ Now would be the time to approach conscripts from last year's authumn draft. They are fully trained, end of service.
However, the #charkiv counter-offensive came right in time to disturb that. Who will join an army that is loosing?

🧵Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has swiftly changed the security landscape of Europe. And as our own @ckafura lays out in @Diplomat_APAC, the war has also opened up a debate in Japan. For #ThreadThursday, we take a look at that debate:
The war in #Ukraine has prompted a much different reaction from Japan than past international crises. Since February, #Japan has imposed broad and escalating economic #sanctions on Russia in coordination with G-7 allies.…
The stronger Japanese response to this crisis is not solely driven by policymakers, but also by the public’s reaction to the war in Ukraine. In @nikkei polling, 61% favored sanctioning #Russia– 2x what polls found after Russia annexed #Crimea in 2014 📊⬇️

#Russia is claiming that the #USA is planning to use chemical, biological OR nuclear weapons in #Ukraine in a false flag attack. The claimed goal would be to blame 🇷🇺 for the attacks. 🇷🇺 supplies a list of targets that includes #Kyiv, #Kharkiv, #Azovstal or #Zaporizhzhya.
🇷🇺 continues it target list with #Kramatorsk, #Slovyansk and #Kamenskoye. It further states that an incident like this has a “high likelihood” of happening in the near future w the consent and knowledge of the 🇺🇦 govt. these are all large population centers spread throughout 🇺🇦.
#Russia states that should this highly likely scenario occur that responsibility will rest exclusively with the #USA. The press release then goes on to note that only the #USA has ever used #nuclearweapons during a conflict.

How the US prepared for World War III

Seemingly overnight, the terms #worldwar3 and #NuclearWar are everywhere.

In reality, the US military has been expanding its #NuclearWeapons fight 🇷🇺 and 🇨🇳 for years.

#UkraineWar #NuclearWeapons #UK #FakeNews

#Fake: The #West has never supported #Ukraine in its plans to get nuclear #weapons.
Truth: #British Defence Secretary Ben #Wallace has publicly admitted () that the United Kingdom is ready to support #Ukraine if it starts developing its own nuclear programme.
Mr #Wallace said this during a video call. The Defence Secretary thought he was talking to his Ukrainian counterpart at the time. But, unfortunately for him, it was the well-known pranksters Vovan and Lexus. 😄
