The push for NATO expansion to Moscow’s border regions has given the Putin regime an excuse to heavily militarize. It is happening at a rapid pace as the entire Russian population is becoming engaged in a push for total war.
The Biden globalist agenda has left the West impotent in the face of Chinese, Iranian and Russian threats, as The White House pushes for transgender and LGBT, DEI, while Moscow pushes for churning out advanced weapons on a massive scale.
Meanwhile, President Biden declared in Vilnius during the recent NATO summit that the West was ‘out of ammunition’.
Russia’s war in Ukraine is already in its 17th month. In that time, President Vladimir Putin has clearly demonstrated that he is not bothered by losses — whether they be financial, material, or human. His war will go on as long as he needs. And, judging by how the authorities have woven the so-called “special military operation” into Russian life, that will be a long time. The government has cash reserves and policy options (such as tax hikes) that mean the current level of military expenditure can be maintained. Putin has not unveiled a coherent plan for “eternal war,” but the Russian parliament has recently passed many laws that institutionalize the war; making it ever-present in day-to-day life, writes Russian independent news outlet The Bell.
Perhaps the most significant change was an extension of the age at which men can be conscripted for military service. Now, young people aged between 18 and 30 can be called up for military service, not just those aged between 18 and 27 (as it had been since Soviet times).
Other significant laws added to the statute books in recent weeks include those on military companies, which governors can now create in their regions on the president’s behalf (during periods of mobilization and martial law). Rosgvardia, Russia’s National Guard, is obliged to provide arms to these groups, and their soldiers have the right to carry and use them. The Moscow mayor has extra powers and he can make his own arrangements directly with Rosgvardia.
The distribution of demand via military expenditure encourages the Kremlin to drag out the war as long as possible. Or to start a cold war in place of the current hot one. All indicators suggest that this is what is happening: economically and legally, the Russian authorities are weaving the war in Ukraine — and more generally the struggle against the West — into the fabric of public life.
“The Russian military has used up all of its old equipment in Ukraine and is now its factories are churning out advanced weapons 24/7”, said Col Douglas Macgregor on a recent podcast with Armed Forces Press.
“We would be smart to end this conflict and regroup before the Tyrannosaurus Rex gets much bigger!”
As the Biden regime exploits every opportunity to escalate the conflict, new leadership in the free world is desperately needed as catastrophe looms for the American people and her allies.
Perhaps that was the plan all along.
