The average life expectancy of a front-line soldier in eastern Ukraine is just four hours, a former US Marine fighting alongside Ukrainian forces in the Donbas told ABC News. “It’s been pretty bad on the ground. A lot of casualties. The life expectancy is around four hours on the front line,” American Troy Offenbecker said.

I knew exactly what would happen when China unveiled their peace plan for the conflict in Ukraine. The night before, I told my wife that western leaders would immediately dismiss it. Sadly, that is precisely what happened. Of course, any peace plan proposed by China was not going to be perfect. But for the good of humanity, our leaders should be willing to at least sit down and talk with the Russians. Because if we stay on the path that we are currently on, eventually somebody will use nuclear weapons. And once things go nuclear, we could be facing a nightmare scenario in which hundreds of millions of people die.
This is not a game.
At some point, peace talks may become impossible. So if we have an opportunity to talk now, we should grab it.
But instead, our leaders made it abundantly clear that they aren’t even interested in considering China’s peace plan…
US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, speaking on CNN, brushed off the Chinese proposal, saying it should have ended after the first bullet point, which calls for “respecting the sovereignty of all countries.”
“This war could end tomorrow, if Russia stopped attacking Ukraine and withdrew its forces,” he said.
Asked about the proposal, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, “China doesn’t have much credibility” in light of its failure to condemn Putin’s war.
And Volodymyr Zelensky is completely rejecting the idea of ever negotiating with Vladimir Putin…
The Ukrainian president has repeatedly rejected the idea of negotiating a peace deal that would see Ukraine lose any of its territory. Speaking on Friday, he said he would not negotiate with Putin – even though he was prepared to speak to him before the war started.
“It is not the same man. There is nobody to talk to there,” he said.
I think that Zelensky would see things quite differently if he was one of the men that was being forced into the meat grinder in eastern Ukraine.
According to a former U.S. Marine that is fighting there, the “average life expectancy of a front-line soldier in eastern Ukraine is just four hours”…

It is a really, really horrible war.
But those that are far from the front lines can afford to talk about how glorious the war is…
Just one day before the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion, the official Twitter account for the NATO military alliance has come under criticism for a post that said Ukraine is “hosting one of the great epics of this century” and compared the war to Hollywood movies.
The post, which quoted a Ukrainian soldier named Pavlo, said: “We are Harry Potter and William Wallace, the Na’vi and Han Solo. We’re escaping from Shawshank and blowing up the Death Star. We are fighting with the Harkonnens and challenging Thanos.”
The idea of comparing the war, which has claimed thousands of lives, seen widespread destruction, and destabalised the world’s food and energy supplies, to fictional characters was quickly deried by many on the social media platform.
I would like to see leaders from both sides being forced to serve on the front lines.
If that ever happened, this war would end really quick.
Sadly, a conflict with Russia is apparently not enough, and so the Biden administration is now relentlessly provoking the Chinese.
This week, a new round of sanctions that were announced by the Biden administration actually included entities located inside China…
The White House has announced yet another package of sweeping sanctions targeting Russia on the one-year anniversary of its brutal invasion of Ukraine – with new efforts to target third countries including China for sanctions evasion.
And it is being reported that the U.S. will soon “quadruple” the number of U.S. troops in Taiwan…
The US is expected to quadruple the number of forces deployed to Taiwan in the coming months as tensions with Beijing continue to simmer.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that the Pentagon plans to deploy between 100 and 200 troops to the self-ruled island, up from around 30 a year ago.
Service members from the Marines and the special forces have been sent to Taiwan in the past and the number has fluctuated over the years.
The Chinese consider Taiwan to be their sovereign territory.
This is something that they believe with a passion.
And so the fact that the Biden administration will be sending more U.S. troops to the island has really pissed them off…
A commentator for the Global Times, a media project of the Chinese Communist Party, issued a threat to the United States on Thursday night, intimating that China would not hesitate to engage U.S. forces stationed in Taiwan if the Chinese launched an invasion of the island nation.
Hu Xijin, formerly the editor-in-chief of the Global Times, reacted to a Wall Street Journal report about U.S. troops traveling to Taiwan by calling it “illegal” and suggesting that the Chinese would treat them as enemy combatants.
“It’s illegal for these US soldiers to go to Taiwan and Chinese mainland won’t take any responsibility for their safety,” tweeted Hu. “If we take military action when necessary, they’ll be wiped out together with the resisting Taiwan troops. They can also be eliminated first as the invading army.”
But most Americans don’t understand any of this.
Most Americans have absolutely no idea that we are literally on the verge of a war with China.
Unfortunately, such a conflict is getting a little bit closer with each passing day. In fact, we just witnessed a very alarming incident over the South China Sea…
A voice, saying it’s coming from a People’s Liberation Army (PLA) airport, crackles over the radio of the US Navy P-8 Poseidon as a CNN crew, given rare access aboard the US flight, listens in.
“American aircraft. Chinese airspace is 12 nautical miles. Not approaching any more or you bear all responsibility,” it says.
For some reason, the U.S. Navy aircraft was carrying a CNN crew, and the Chinese fighter jet got so close to them that they “could make out the red star on the tail fins and the missiles it was armed with”…
In a few minutes, a Chinese fighter jet armed with air-to-air missiles intercepts the US plane, nestling in just 500 feet off its port side.
The Chinese fighter jet was so close, the CNN crew could see the pilots turning their heads to look at them – and could make out the red star on the tail fins and the missiles it was armed with.
Why does the Biden administration see the need to endlessly provoke China at a moment like this?
It is madness.
We could easily find ourselves involved in conflicts with both Russia and China at the same time, and I have been precisely warning of such a scenario for a very long time.
Unfortunately, we have a hothead in the White House that is in an advanced stage of mental decline.
And he is surrounded by irrational warmongers such as Jake Sullivan, Antony Blinken and Victoria Nuland.
They do not want peace.
So global war is coming, and I would strongly encourage you to get prepared for such an outcome.
