Seems to me that the West/Biden is engaged in a poking of the Russian bear almost to provoke a reaction. Let's not forget that some years ago the West invaded Iraq on the basis of intelligence reports of Weapons of Mass Destruction,
Biden and his administration and the military complex want a war. Not just a regular war but a war with Nuclear weapons. This would allow those individuals who want to control the oil pipe line to take control. Also it would open many gates for making money for the elites.
Senator Wicker already said the the USA should use Nuclear weapons against Russia and many of both Democrats and Republicans have agreed that the USA should strike first with Nukes so as not to allow Russia to shoot their Nukes.
China has said if USA strikes Russia with Nukes, it will strike the USA with Nukes to avoid being nuked by America.
