This week, the world moved closer to nuclear war due to Joe Biden’s actions. Wednesday, Biden enthusiastically dispatched dozens of Abrams tanks to assist Ukraine in its fight against Russian forces.
Now, the World Health Organization (WHO) is urging all nations to stock up on medications that treat radiological and nuclear emergencies. Since 2007, this is the first time they’ve made this recommendation.
Here’s more from The Hill:
The updated list, which advises nations on how to stockpile for nuclear and radiological accidents and emergencies, is included in a new WHO report reflecting data and research for related medical treatment that emerged in the last decade.
Maria Neira, the director of the WHO’s Department of Public Health and Environment, said it was important for nations and governments to have “ready supplies of lifesaving medicines that will reduce risks and treat injuries from radiation.”
“In radiation emergencies, people may be exposed to radiation at doses ranging from negligible to life-threatening,” Neira said in a statement. “Governments need to make treatments available for those in need — fast.”
The WHO says a typical radiation emergency stockpile should include stable iodine to reduce the exposure of the thyroid to radioactive iodine; chelating agents to reduce radioactive cesium, which can form during nuclear fission, from the body; and cytokines to mitigate damage to the bone marrow.
In addition to infection, diarrhoea, and vomiting, the list from the World Health Organization includes a number of other medications that treat radiation-induced bodily injury, such as infection and diarrhea.
The United States announced on Wednesday that it will provide Ukraine with 31 advanced M1 Abrams tanks worth $400 million over the next few months. The decision was made in order to resolve a diplomatic impasse with Germany regarding the most effective means of assisting Kiev in its conflict with Russia.
President Biden thanked Germany for its decision to provide Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks, stating, “Germany has really stepped up.”
Biden claims “Russia anticipates that we will disintegrate, but we are fully, completely, and thoroughly united.”
The delivery of the Abrams tanks, which are among the strongest in the United States’ arsenal, will not occur immediately. According to senior administration officials who provided information to reporters, the delivery of the tanks will take several months, not weeks. This decision is viewed as a long-term measure to support Ukraine’s defense.

Let us hope and pray that this situation will be resolved prior to the onset of a period of global conflict.
