Retired General and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn released an official statement Thursday on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Flynn states not only was this “invasion” totally avoidable, but “President Biden and his failed foreign policy team set the table and sent the invitation and President Putin came and spoiled the dinner party.”
Flynn states, “With the price of oil pushing above $100 per barrel, the U.S. Stock market opening with heavy losses, more global economic challenges looming, the real potential for significant loss of life, and the international community in complete disarray with feeble attempts to condemn what was totally avoidable, we face the onset of another very grave and historic period of tension between competing ideologies and worse, the onset of WWIII.”
“There are fault lines on both sides” as well as “gross violations of previous agreements due to incompetence, arrogance and ignorance that got us to this point” writes Flynn. There are real consequences of war and “for now, we must pray that those affected without an ability to decide their fate, are able to survive this extraordinary period of world history unfolding (for many unraveling) on the world stage.”
“What happens next is anyone’s guess but Putin (and Xi—Taiwan?) just laid down a new world order marker” he continues. “It is doubtful our U.S. Administration will change its failed foreign policy and instead, they will make weak attempts to triple down on leveraging this extremely serious situation in Europe to continue to distract from problems here at home.”
Among those failures to distract from are:
Starting with shutting down the Keystone pipeline and America’s energy independence while and enabling Russia and Germany (read Europe) to reopen the Nordstream pipeline, one has to wonder about the discussions in the Oval office that came to these conclusions.
Describing America as a systemically racist nation, the appointment of Marxists and other radical ideologues to positions of power, allowing millions to surge across our southern border, attempts to federalize and take over our election systems and processes, implementing racist CRT in our schools, our military and across our government, all along, raising the national debt closing in on $30 Trillion dollars, spending us toward extinction, all for left-wing causes.
Let us not forget the Afghanistan disaster, the myriad lies about COVID, a certain Biden owned laptop, and a fraudulent presidential election that has massive amounts of evidence coming out daily…all while China gets a pass.
“It is extremely difficult to trust this administration as they lie with a straight face to the American people daily.” Flynn concludes, “there will never be justification for this invasion or any other form of invasion…never forget that war results when diplomacy fails.”
“may God watch over and protect those in harm’s way and may God continue to bless and protect the United States of America.”
Report: North Korean ballistic missile fired by Russia into Ukraine contained components sourced from U.S.
A new report from Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a U.K.-based investigative organization, determined that a North Korean ballistic missile which was fired by Russia into Ukraine contained “numerous” electronic components sourced from the U.S. and Europe.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reported on the findings, noting approximately 75% of the 290 components analyzed in the missile originated from U.S.-based companies, and an additional 16% of components came from European firms, according to the CAR report.
The electronic components came from 26 countries in total and were largely utilized in the missile’s navigation system, according to the report. It isn’t clear how the components ended up in North Korea’s possession, as the country is strictly sanctioned by a bulk of the international community, but it’s possible other foreign companies, acting as middlemen, bought the components and then diverted them to the communist country.
However, the fact that North Korea was able to acquire so many American electronic component parts suggests “that the country has developed a robust acquisition network capable of circumventing, without detection, sanction regimes that have been in place for nearly two decades,” according to the report.
CAR documents “weapons at the point of use and track their sources back through the chains of supply.”North Korea gathered the components, assembled the missile and shipped it to Russia, all within a relatively short time period, according to the report. The missile was recovered by CAR on Jan. 2, and the investigators determined it could not have been manufactured before March 2023.

The U.S. government and intelligence agencies are working to stop sensitive American intellectual property from ending up in the hands of several foreign adversaries. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin have strengthened their relationship since Russia first invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
“Due in part to our export and sanction controls, Russia has become increasingly isolated on the world stage, and they’ve been forced to look to like-minded states for military equipment,” White House National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby said during a press briefing in January. “One of those states is North Korea.”
