The Belarusian president is not lying when he says he’s the kind of person that gets involved in triggering a World War.
European Union leaders gathered in Lisbon on Thursday to discuss further economic sanctions on Belarus following its widely-condemned forced landing of a Ryanair passenger plane, The Times reported Friday. The country’s authoritarian leaders were looking to arrest a 26-year-old political dissident on board.
The latest EU sanctions are expected to target Belarus’ “most important industries and its financial sector,” per the Times. Said Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte: “This is an unpredictable regime from which you can expect anything, and you have to be prepared for anything.”
On Wednesday, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko recoiled at the mention of sanctions, threatening to “loosen border controls” against “Western-bound illegal immigration” and drug trafficking in response, per The Associated Press. “We were stopping migrants and drugs — now you will catch them and eat them yourself,” said Lukashenko.
Lukashenko had gone so far as to assert the possibility of another world war should something “[flare] up” in Belarus, per AP. “We will respond firmly to any sanctions, attacks and provocations … because you in the West are giving us no other choice,” warned the leader, claiming Western sanctions are fueled by “envy, helplessness, and anger.”
You do have to wonder just how on top of this situation Russia actually is.
The US Military and NATO are just looking for an excuse to start a World War, and Lukashenko seems to be passing out free excuses.
Who knows – maybe Vladimir Putin has a plan.
He didn’t have one in the Ukraine.
At this point, we have no idea who is controlling the US military, but it is clear they are acting independently of the Biden Administration, which appears to be more or less a fake government.
They are going to start a war with someone. They seem to oscillate between Russia and China in terms of which one they want to hit first. I d0n’t know if they haven’t decided or if this is just a fake-out.
Russia is by far the weakest enemy. The West’s ability to unleash Moslem terror inside of Russia would really be a big problem. Russia would have to ban Moslems from white cities, which would probably cause Chechnya and Dagestan to rise up.
