Romney warns of ‘unimaginable’ nuclear attack from Putin, his answer is for NATO to ‘engage in Ukraine’

U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) says that the Biden administration and NATO should get ready to respond in kind to the possibility of Russia deploying a tactical nuke in Ukraine, although other options are on the table.

“Mr. Putin and his enablers should have no doubt that our answer to such depravity would be devastating,” Romney declared about the Russian Federation president and his inner circle in an Op-Ed for the New York Times.

“By invading Ukraine, Mr. Putin has already proved that he is capable of illogical and self-defeating decisions,” Romney warned in the opinion essay headlined “We Must Prepare for Putin’s Worst Weapons.”

Describing Putin as “cornered and delusional,” Romney still appears to be seeking vindication for his at-the-time, widely mocked remark in a 2012 presidential debate against Obama that Russia was America’s biggest geopolitical threat.

Putin, an ex-KGB officer, had ruled Russia with an iron hand since 1999, including a stint as prime minister.

Russian government officials have alluded to the possibility of deploying a nuclear weapon as the Ukraine war drags on, Romney claimed.

Russia reportedly has a stockpile of 6,000 nukes.

“We should imagine the unimaginable, specifically how we would respond militarily and economically to such a seismic shift in the global geopolitical terrain,” Romney wrote in the editorial published on Saturday.

Along with the other neocons and the neolibs, the former Massachusetts governor (2003-2007) is all-in on providing unlimited military support to Ukraine in the ongoing hostilities. In apparently looking for approval from the corporate media, he has even gone so far as to accuse anyone, including fellow GOP lawmakers and others, who is not a war hawk of almost committing treason.

“Russia’s use of a nuclear weapon would unarguably be a redefining, reorienting geopolitical event,” Romney noted in his article. “Together with our key NATO allies, we should develop and evaluate a broad range of options…The potential responses to an act so heinous and geopolitically disorienting as a nuclear strike must be optimally designed and have the support of our NATO allies.”

The  RINO-trending Romney, who voted to convict ex-President  Donald Trump in both impeachment proceedings, conceded that a wide range of potential options exist apart from a potential nuclear response, which apparently includes the deployment of NATO troops on the ground, which could in and of itself constitute a huge escalation.

“For example, NATO could engage in Ukraine, potentially obliterating Russia’s struggling military. Further, we could confront China and every other nation with a choice much like that George W. Bush gave the world after Sept. 11: You are either with us, or you are with Russia — you cannot be with both,” Romney outlined.

Projecting ahead to the possibility of nuclear strike,” Any nation that chose to retain ties with Russia after such an outrage would itself also become a global pariah,” Romney also wrote. “It could ultimately be economic Armageddon, but that is far preferable to nuclear Armageddon.”

Despite the scorn that everyone from Obama on down heaped on Romney in 2012, vindicative Democrats subsequently climbed on the anti-Russia bandwagon amidst the ascendancy of Donald Trump, using so-called Russia-gate as a weapon to undermine the 45th president and his America First agenda.

In 2016, Trump claimed that Romney was a disaster in the previous election cycle, and fumbled away a chance to beat Obama. He also recalled, in freewheeling Trump style, how Romney begged for an endorsement in 2012.

The senator has acknowledged that Trump is the likely 2024 presidential nominee for his party.

In the meantime, authoritarian, CCP-controlled China is aggressively seeking to become the world’s primary superpower, in part enabled by U.S. establishment politicians and corporations.
