This thread may be a little long but I promise it’s worth it if you have an open mind.

Especially if you’ve ever lived in fear of some puppet President or Ruler pushing the ever dreaded “Red Bottom” and launching nukes.

Nukes do not exist in the way they have been described to us.

Look at this video with your adult eyes. Odd? These are miniatures used to fool you into being afraid.

They showed you these and made young children do drills in schools and hide under desks in manufactured fear.
This man Galen Winsor (1926-2008), a chemist and nuclear physicist went to the Hanford Nuclear Site where they housed 200,000 cubic meters of high-level radioactive waste, swam in the pools where the spent fuel rods were kept and drank a glass of water out of them each day.… Image

#Putin Ups the Ante With Nukes in Belarus up till his arse into the #nukes…
Putin is also trying to conflate his own plans in Belarus with the long-standing US practice of stationing nuclear bombs in Allied nations such as Belgium, the #Netherlands, #Germany, Italy and Turkey. But those arsenals — whatever their merits at the time — date to the Cold War.
Neither Washington nor any other capital in control of nuclear weapons would dream of placing such warheads closer to Russia in the current state of tension. You wonder if that polite stand off between the West and Russia relations will continue. Putin showing no turning back

Given Putin’s renewed nuclear threats today, a quick thread on why #nukes really don’t offer an effective MILITARY tool. Before we go on; yes of course it would be a dangerous, world-changing break with the nuclear taboo, would invite conventional NATO retaliation etc. (1/5) Image
Typical ‘tactical’ nuclear weapons have a yield of between 1kt and 30kt. They are much smaller than megaton-range thermonuclear strategic nuclear warheads. Here is a very approximate model of a 10kt airburst over Lyman for illustration. Direct damage hardly clears the town. (2/5) Image
For scale, see here how this fits into just Donbas. Tactical nuclear weapons would be catastrophic for troops or civilians in the kilometre or two around the blast radius. But you would need to use lots to materially alter the balance of forces in Ukraine as a whole. (3/5) Image

Let's talk #Russian #nuclear strategy and why that's relevant to recent developments in Russia's war in #Ukraine.
First, Ukraine has made major territorial gains, especially around Kharkiv. This has put a lot of pressure on Putin. 1/23
This has hit his international standing and was on display at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in Uzbekistan. Putin was publicly put down by Modi and Xi, and today Erdogan also chided him - they all had the same message: the war must end. 2/
On top of that, other Central Asian nations didn't treat Putin with the respect that he would normally expect. Not to mention the added instability along Russia's borders with fighting btw #Armenia - #Azerbaijan, and #Tajikistan - #Kyrgyzstan. 3/

#Putin's decision to facilitate the issuance of Russian passports in #Kherson & #Zaporizhzhya regions of #Ukraine isn't spontaneous. This decision has been on the table for at least 2 months and has been transformed & postponed given the objective situation on the front
Moreover, #Putin's plans for the annexation of several regions of #Ukraine to #Russia are a resolved matter and these plans are constantly discussed at closed-door meetings in various formats with the participation of the President
Now the main goal #Putin has set for the military is to reach the admin borders of #Donetsk & #Luhansk regions and, if possible, #Kherson & #Zaporizhzhya regions of Ukraine

🧵1200+1 hrs since #Ukrainian Patriotic War of Independence was started by #Russia full scale attack & 2976? days since #RussiaInvadedUkraine.
Pretty much the same as last time - tense situation waiting for new #Russist violence as they sink in frustration over their failures...
More missile strikes, air alerts across entire country. Which is ofc expected after the humiliation #Russia suffered when its #Moskva sank. Frustrated with own failures they can only escalate and keep destroying our cities, sending missies to kill us from, for now, safe distance
#Russia's #criminal culture demands an "otvetka" - their criminal slang for a retaliation, which, characteristically, they use openly in their propaganda - crime is a part of their fascist mafia culture, after all.

#Russia has invaded Sovereign #Ukraine.
Russia along with the big 5 gave Ukraine, #Belarus and #Kazakhstan explicit guarantee to respect their Sovereignty and territories as part of #Budapest memorandum in return for giving up their #nukes.
#Putin claimed that "promises" were made and broken regarding #NATO expansion?
Yet #Gorbachev has said many times that no such promise was given
Who should we believe?
The Ethno-nationalist?
Or the Nobel prize winner?
Russia breached this accord with its original 2014 invasion.
The actions of Russia in its pursuit of Crimea and making #Azov a russian lake have led to creating and supporting continued insurgency in eastern Ukraine.
The claim of Putin to be entering Ukraine as a #peacekeeper?
As a guardian of Russian speakers?

I have been studying this topic since at least 2004. Maybe earlier. Back then it was 'forum posts' where you'd see the blatant hijacking and 'flaming of threads'.
There were guides showing how 'agents/shills'were assigned to take over boards or how to slide & bury information that they wanted to keep out of the public eye.

This huge thread from reddit explains how pervasive all of this is now in the late 2000s:
This is all very real, but most people just don't know or they discount how serious the problem is, because the internet "feels real"... Especially social media.

It really feels like you're interacting with real people.

#Nukes are in the news a LOT, and it's scary that one man has his finger on the button. But we built them, we can take them apart, and we don’t have to have one person in charge of ending the world. Learn more about #NoFirstUse at
A #NoFirstUse (NFU) policy is a commitment by a country to never be the first to use #nuclearweapons in a conflict. Learn more about why a country should adopt a No First Use policy and what you can do about it in our Q&A…
