Biden Says He Won’t Send US Troops to Ukraine

While the warhawks are now pushing the US toward conflict with Russia, claiming that the troops Russia has stationed at bases near Ukraine are going to overrun it sometime soon, it appears that Biden is backing off the warpath.

According to the Hill:

President Biden on Wednesday said the United States is not considering sending troops to Ukraine amid rising fears about the possibility of a Russian military invasion.

“That is not on the table,” Biden told reporters at the White House before departing for a trip to Kansas City, Mo.

“We have a moral obligation and a legal obligation to our NATO allies if they were to attack under Article 5, it’s a sacred obligation. That obligation does not extend to … Ukraine,” he added. 

Biden said it would “depend upon what the rest of the NATO countries were willing to do as well” but rejected the idea that the U.S. would “unilaterally use force to confront Russia” if it were to invade. 

Those comments are a bit confused, as can be expected from Biden. At first, he says that sending troops to fight in Ukraine is “off the table” because Ukraine is not a NATO ally, but then he seems to hedge that by saying that our level of commitment would depend on what other NATO countries do.

That presents two, conflicting possibilities if Russia does invade Ukraine. One is that the US won’t send troops under any circumstances but would instead send other aid to Ukraine or our NATO allies if they end up in a state of war with Russia. The other possibility is that, while the US won’t sent troops on its own, sending troops to support a NATO mission isn’t “off the table.”

Either could be the case, as Biden’s statement was muddled at the end and implied that his original remark that sending troops was “off the table” wasn’t entirely true if other NATO countries decide to wage war on Russia.

However, it might not matter. The CIA recently declared it doesn’t think that Russia is preparing to invade Ukraine and, though the CIA is frequently wrong, that could be accurate, and should at least be taken into account.

Furthermore, Biden has generally avoided bellicosity, generally mentioning sanctions rather than troop or weapons deployments. Meanwhile, Putin has called for de-escalation and is planning on sending Biden deescalation proposals.

While only time will tell what all this leads to, it seems, for now, that the idea of US troops dying for Donetsk or Minsk is “off the table,” at least unless our NATO allies stumble into war over Ukraine.
