Biden’s ‘Armageddon’ Remarks Lambasted by Mike Pompeo

As our planet remains delicately perched on the precipice of total annihilation, the political flailing of the Biden administration has created a great deal of American anxiety.

We have a nuclear madman in Moscow threatening Ukraine and the world with an atomic apocalypse, all while a geriatric and reluctant Commander in Chief continues to babble and bumble his way around America.

Worse still:  There are fears that Biden’s messaging on the matter may be making things far worse than he realizes.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that President Joe Biden was “reckless” in warning last week about the possible use of nuclear weapons by President Vladimir Putin and Russia.

“Those comments were reckless,” said Pompeo, who served in the Cabinet of former President Donald Trump, on “Fox News Sunday,” calling Biden’s statements “a terrible risk to the American people.”

Biden’s statement was controversial…to say the least.

“We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis,” Biden said Thursday during a fundraiser, referencing the October 1962 crisis that put the United States and the Soviet Union on the verge of nuclear war for almost two weeks.

On Sunday, speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby said: “The president was reflecting the very high stakes that are in play right now.”

Kirby added in reference to Putin: “Neither we nor our allies are going to be intimidated by this and we’re going to continue to provide support and security assistance to Ukraine as is necessary.”

Pompeo had a better idea.

Pompeo said the Biden administration would have been better off using “quiet diplomacy” in pushing Putin to understand the consequences of using nuclear weapons. “I hope that they are doing this quietly,” he said to host Shannon Bream.

Putin’s nuclear threats have been largely written off by world leaders as nothing more than desperate ramblings, but there are at least two major pieces of Putin’s atomic arsenal on the move currently, leading some to wonder just how much bluffing the Kremlin is actually doing.
