(Natural News) Following the West’s recent decision to send tanks to Ukraine for use against Russia, Army Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis warned that the provocation, should it result in a NATO invocation of the “mutual defense” clause, will eventually result in nuclear war.

Davis, who spent more than two decades in active service, including deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, told the independent media that just because tanks are being sent does not mean that Ukraine actually knows how to use them.

“From someone who has done combat operations in tank-on-tank fights; in operations patrolling the East-West border during the Cold War and its potential Soviet invasions; and was the second-in-command of an armored cavalry squadron for the First Armored Division in the mid 2000s in Germany; I can tell you that just having NATO tanks does not equal battlefield success,” Davis told Breitbart News.

“The problem is that what works on video games and on paper – you have to make it work on the ground. And very few people anywhere in the western media or anywhere in the other media, for that matter, understand how combat power is made.”

Many Ukrainian soldiers have never been inside or even seen these kinds of tanks, let alone been trained in how to use them. Simply supplying the equipment is not enough to fight off Russia, especially since Ukraine has no experience in maneuver warfare, according to Davis.

“They have lots of experience in trench-warfare, in static warfare, and in defensive warfare – they’ve actually gotten very good at it and that’s why it’s so hard and taking Russia so long to push Studenok, because they’re actually very good at defending.”


If NATO and the West keep pushing to the limit, Russia will pull the nuclear option

Russia knows it cannot successfully defeat NATO and the West without deploying nuclear weapons, Davis warns. Conventionally speaking, Russia simply lacks the military capacity to get the job done – unless it pulls out the big guns.

“There is zero chance – and I mean zero – not point anything, that Russia could ever militarily defeat NATO in a conventional sense,” Davis said.

“It’s a physical impossibility. They’re just struggling even now to defeat Ukrainians in part of the Donbas, their next-door neighbor, so they certainly couldn’t take on a 30 member NATO military alliance; they know that.”

“So the only way they can defend against NATO, is through nuclear weapons, of course. So if we try to think we’re going to trigger Article 5 and not trigger nuclear war. I mean, we’re just insane and fooling ourselves.”

The United States is doing all the wrong things right now if it wants to avert a nuclear escalation. Flooding Ukraine with tanks and other heavy military equipment with no actual plans at the ready for how to use any of it is a recipe for failure.

“We don’t even know what we want to do,” Davis says about the end goals of the U.S. in this skirmish.

“Imagine if you’re throwing all of this military equipment out there and you don’t even know what you want to accomplish – how are you going to know if this is successful? How can President Biden or anybody in the Pentagon tell the American people whether it’s worth it to send this equipment or whether it’s not? Whether it’s making a difference or not? There’s no criteria!”

It is important to remember that Russia currently holds the largest nuclear stockpile in the world – and if pushed to the limit, Russia will not hold back in launching nukes.

Governments spied on high-profile journalists, politicians that were critical of covid policy

(Natural News) A new report from Big Brother Watch details how the British government hired contractors to spy on high-profile journalists and politicians to ensure they followed the script of the official covid narrative.

Entitled “Ministry of Truth: The secretive government units spying on your speech,” the report explains at length how these hired contractors were tasked with flagging suspicious tweets for potential recategorization as “misinformation” if they contained anything that the government deemed as “false.”

Those who tweeted offending tweets were then punished in accordance with Big Tech’s covid “misinformation” and “disinformation” policies, which in some cases resulted in a ban.

According to the report, there was a special government list of offending tweets and associated accounts that Big Brother used to go after prominent targets such as MP David Davis and journalist Julia Hartley-Brewer, both of whom criticized the government’s covid monitoring apparatus.

Three Tory MPs were targeted for joining Parler, a free speech alternative platform to Twitter. Silkie Carlo and Mark Johnson of Big Brother Watch, along with Adam Brooks, a pub landlord and political commentator, were also targeted for criticizing so-called “vaccine passports.”

(Related: Parler was removed from Apple’s App Store for allowing too much free speech, and was only allowed to return after surrendering to the left-wing speech police.)

“The UK government also considered flagging Toby Young posts to Twitter while Peter Hitchens and Daily Mail journalist Ross Clark were targeted for criticizing lockdowns, just as Keir Starmer, Andy Burnham, MP Chris Green were targeted for criticizing tiered regulations and local lockdowns,” reported Reclaim the Net. “Starmer is the leader of the Labour Party and Andy Burnham is the Mayor of Manchester.”


The U.S. government is spying on and punishing “misinformation” spreaders, too

Mind you, what was happening in the UK as far as censorship goes was far more limited than what was happening, and continues to happen, here in the United States.

Over there, potential “opinion-makers” were the primary targets of the government’s spying and surveillance operation. Here in the States, anyone who tries to tell the truth online faces potential punishment by Big Tech and the government.

We now know that in the UK, a military division called the 77th Brigade was brought in to help with that country’s “information” warfare operations. It was a whistleblower from the 77th Brigade who came forward to spill the beans that let us all know about his group’s involvement.

That whistleblower “lift[ed] the lid on the ‘sentiment analysis’ the 77th Brigade conducted, looking at how people viewed the government’s handling of the pandemic.”

Through a number of Freedom of Information requests, Big Brother Watch also determined that the following were also involved in Great Britain’s censorship operations: the Counter Disinformation Unit (covering government response from the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport, as well as the Rapid Response Unit in the Cabinet Office) and the Foreign Office’s Government Information Cell, and the Research, Intelligence and Communications Unit in the Home Office.

“This is an alarming case of mission creep, where public money and even military power have been misused to monitor academics, journalists, campaigners and members of parliament who criticized the government, particularly during the pandemic,” commented Big Brother Watch Director Silkie Carlo.

As we also reported, Twitter hired its own army of FBI agents to help with these surveillance operations both domestically and abroad.

“Twitter is just another arm of government newspeak,” wrote a commenter here at Natural News about the deceptive nature of this “social media” platform. “Censor any opposition to the party line.”

Four-star Air Force general warns war with China just two years away… but America doesn't have the missiles to fight for long

Image: Four-star Air Force general warns war with China just two years away… but America doesn’t have the missiles to fight for long

(Natural News) A top Air Force general issued a shocking ‘gut feeling’ warning to those in his chain of command last week warning them to get read for a major conflict with China in two years.

Gen. Mike Minihan, head of Air Mobility Command, said in a memo obtained by NBC News, “I hope I am wrong. My gut tells me will fight in 2025.”

The news outlet reported further:

Air Mobility Command has nearly 50,000 service members and nearly 500 planes and is responsible for transport and refueling.

Minihan said in the memo that because both Taiwan and the U.S. will have presidential elections in 2024, the U.S. will be “distracted,” and Chinese President Xi Jinping will have an opportunity to move on Taiwan. 

In the memo, the Air Mobility commander explained his objectives for preparing, which include building “a fortified, ready, integrated, and agile Joint Force Maneuver Team ready to fight and win inside the first island chain.”

The signed memo was sent to all air wing commanders within the command and other operational commanders throughout the Air Force. It orders them to report to him all significant efforts to prepare for fighting China by Feb. 28.

During the next month, the memo directs all AMC personnel to “fire a clip into a 7-meter target with the full understanding that unrepentant lethality matters most,” adding, “Aim for the head.” In addition, he ordered all of his personnel to update medical and other records as well as emergency contacts.

In March, he ordered all personnel to “consider their personal affairs and whether a visit should be scheduled with their servicing base legal office to ensure they are legally ready and prepared.”


Furthermore, he advises AMC personnel to take on some risks in training.

“Run deliberately, not recklessly,” he writes, though later in the memo, he added: “If you are comfortable in your approach to training, then you are not taking enough risk.”

NBC News added: He also provides a window into one capability the U.S. is considering for possible conflict with China — commercial drone swarms. He directs the KC-135 units to prepare for “delivering 100 off-the-shelf size and type UAVs from a single aircraft.”

On Friday, a spokesperson for the command confirmed the authenticity of the memo.

“This is an authentic internal memo from General Minihan addressed to his subordinate command teams. His order builds on last year’s foundational efforts by Air Mobility Command to ready the Mobility Air Forces for future conflict, should deterrence fail,” the spokesperson said, according to NBC News.

And Defense Department press secretary Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder added in a statement: “The National Defense Strategy makes clear that China is the pacing challenge for the Department of Defense and our focus remains on working alongside allies and partners to preserve a peaceful, free and open Indo-Pacific.”

In March 2021, Adm. Philip Davidson, then commander of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing that China has designs on Taiwan and plans to take over the island democracy by force if diplomacy fails.

“I think the threat is manifest during this decade, in fact, in the next six years,” said Davidson.

Meanwhile, former lawmaker, CIA director, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed Minihan’s statement in an interview with Breitbart News.

“The Chinese Communist Party has frankly…been at war, at the very least economic war, with the United States for 40 years, and we just turn the other cheek and let them run over us and build their economy on the backs of the American worker. And so I’m glad to see this,” Pompeo said of the memo.

He added: Yes, our military should get ready. I don’t know if 2024, 2025 is the moment, but we should be doing the hard work, getting our military space systems, our cyber systems, all of those lined up, and then working our tails off to continue to build on what I write about in [his book] Never Give an Inch; India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, our partners in the region the Philippines we should be working with them to deliver against the Chinese Communist Party a capacity to deter them from doing precisely what [Minihan] writes about.”

On Sunday, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said of Minihan’s prediction during a Fox News interview: “I hope he’s wrong, as well. I think he’s right, though, unfortunately.”

WATCH: House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman @RepMcCaul joined @ShannonBream on #FoxNewsSunday to discuss China’s looming threat, the U.S. sending tanks to Ukraine, our military readiness and more.
