SecDef Austin: Russia's invasion of Ukraine represents a world that none of us want to live in


‘A preview of a possible world of tyranny’: U.S. Def Sec on Putin’s war

U.S. Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said failure to help Ukraine secure its own future could lead to a “world of tyranny and turmoil”, in a speech on Saturday that sought to lay out the stakes in the war for the international community. Austin's remarks, delivered at a security forum in Canada, were some of his most powerful to date on Russia's invasion which has lasted for nearly nine months already.

…Mr Austin also said that “Russia's invasion offers a preview of a possible world of tyranny and turmoil, turmoil that none of us want to live in,” adding that Russia’s irresponsible nuclear saber rattling, if not reacted to, risks encouraging other dictators. “Putin's fellow autocrats are watching. And they could well conclude that getting nuclear weapons would give them a hunting license of their own. And that could drive a dangerous spiral of nuclear proliferation,” Austin said.

As Mr Austin said, the danger is already apparent. “Now the ripples of Russia's invasion have traveled far, far beyond Europe,” said the U.S. Defence Secretary. “Beijing, like Moscow, seeks a world where might makes right. Where disputes are resolved by force and where autocrats can stamp out the flame of freedom.”


Very strong words. Putin fluffers on the right just got taken to the political woodshed.
