Tucker Carlson opened his show last night with an important message.

“You’re going to get a hot war with Russia — and China — whether you want one or not.”

He followed up with an analysis of the Black Sea drone incident and the calls for retaliation and escalation from the War Party, both Democrat and Republican alike.  Watch the whole thing but the most important part is at the end:

But as they were yapping about all of that, they missed some other things that were going on in the United States, like, for example, the collapse of our economy. The second and third-biggest bank failures in the history of this country just took place. Now, the venerable Credit Suisse is down 97% from its all-time high. It’s trading for about 2 Swiss francs.
Are you worried about that? Yeah, you probably should be. Your leaders aren’t worried at all. The media don’t care at all. Instead, they’re telling you that you’re a traitor to your country if you don’t want a Third World War, and they’re panicked, of course, just like Milley was panicked in that tape. They’re afraid.
Why are they afraid? Because they know the public is not on their side, but the second we actually go to war with Russia, they will use that as a pretext to crush all dissent. There is no dissent allowed in wartime, and that’s what this is really about in addition to their personal enrichment. It’s about changing the domestic politics of the United States.
The second we can all say we’re at war with Russia, not in effect, but in reality, in a hot war, which is what they want, that’s the moment that you were no longer allowed to express your opinions. And the penalty is jail during war. It’s happened a lot, and they want that now. Hopefully on the basis the questionnaires we received, other people will take charge soon and save us from this lunacy.

The timing of this incident is just way too convenient.  At a time when more and more people on both sides of the aisle are growing skeptical over helping a obviously corrupt Ukraine (not too mention a country full of Nazi love).  Any skepticism is characterized in the media as supporting Russia.

Meanwhile we are sending boatloads of cash to this country for what?  To line the pockets of these corrupt Ukrainian politicians and to support a war that has no bearing on our country whatsoever.

We spent more than Russia’s typical annual military budget in Ukraine, and yet the Ukrainian military is out of ammunition again? OK, that might be a question for Zelenskyy. Where’s all the money going? They’re on the phone with BlackRock all day. Where’s all the money going? People are getting very rich. You can’t have an audit because if you want an audit of where your money is going into the most corrupt country in Europe, you’re a tool of Putin. 
The media, by the way, isn’t mad about the fact our money appears to be disappearing into this sinkhole of corruption called Ukraine or being used to close Christian churches. No, they’re mad because the House speaker, Kevin McCarthy, hasn’t rushed to kiss the ring of Zelenskyy.

As far as that Drone incident I’ll let Larry Johnson explain the situation:

 Let us start with the facts:

  1. The MQ9 drone was conducting an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance mission in international air space off the coast of Crimea.
  2. The MQ9 turned off its Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) transponder.
  3. Russian air defense systems were tracking the drone.
  4. Russian jet fighters were scrambled to intercept the drone.
  5. The United States and NATO have been flying drones along the Crimea coast for more than a year.
  6. The drone was brought down without a shot being fired by the Russian combat jet fighters.

So far the United States and Russian military are sticking with the same story — i.e, one of the planes clipped the drone’s propeller accidentally, which cause the drone to crash.
Russia’s Foreign Minister Lavrov’s comments on the incident makes it clear Russia viewed this drone as a threat to its security.
Russia’s Ambassador in Washington reacted sharply to calls by American officials, specifically Senator Lindsey Graham, to shoot down a Russian jet interfering with a U.S. drone:

“ Intentionally attacking a Russian aircraft in neutral airspace is not just a crime under international law, but also an open declaration of war on the largest nuclear power ,” he warned. “ An armed clash between Russia and the United States would be radically different from a proxy war that the Americans wage remotely against us in Ukraine. Is the Capitol ready to expose American citizens and the international community to the risk of all-out nuclear war? Answer, dear senator! “

If you look closely at the picture of the MQ9 Reaper above you will see that it is almost impossible for a Russian jet to just “hit” the propeller without causing other damage to the drone. That kind of impact would have caused the drone to start tumbling, probably end over end.
…This is not a video game. Russia, from its perspective, is defending its homeland. As I mentioned in my previous piece, how would we react if Russian drones were flying along the Mexican/U.S. border collecting intelligence on the deployment of U.S. border forces and passing that information to the Mexican drug cartels, who in turn would use that information to flood the weak points of our border with illegal migrants? Americans would be rightly outraged. So why do we think we can do what we are doing and expect the Russians to roll over like a beaten dog and do nothing?

Unless some adults step up and stop this senseless, idiotic, and childish escalation we may well find ourselves in a very real shooting war for no good reason.
