Armageddon is Closing in on us

Armageddon is Closing in on us

Paul Craig Roberts

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks at the 32nd Assembly of the Council for Foreign and Defence Policy, Moscow, May 18, 2024

Lavrov’s speech indicates that after 20 years of rebuffs the Russian government is gradually realizing that their “Western partners” are in fact determined enemies. Sooner or later Lavrov and Putin will comprehend that arrayed against Russia is Satanic Evil that cannot be negotiated with.

Putin and Lavrov have tried to deal with evil diplomatically. Even after the entire West cold-shouldered the Russian government’s efforts during December 2021 and January 2022 to arrive at a mutual defense treaty, the Russian government still misunderstood its adversary and with the slow paced limited intervention in Ukraine carelessly conveyed to Washington the means to widen the conflict.

By all indications, the conflict is now wide open. If Putin fails to decisively win the war before Western Ukraine fills with NATO soldiers, Putin’s options will be surrender or nuclear war.
