An op-ed by National Security Advisor Lt. General Michael Flynn suggests that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was “totally avoidable,” and because of America’s perceived weakness and poor foreign policies, the world is now in the “onset of WWIII,” according to the Western Journal.

Flynn writes: “

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.”
