Well, ladies and gentlemen, if you had stopped worrying about the potential for the United States being pulled into the conflict raging between Ukraine and Russia, your relaxation was a bit on the premature side, as President Joe Biden issued a warning on Friday that the latest missile barrage authorized by Russian President Vladimir Putin means “he must be stopped.”
And that means the United States getting directly involved. Why can’t we just simply allow other countries to fight their own battles? Ukraine is a very corrupt nation too. There are no good guys in this situation. Yes, it’s tragic that so many innocent people are dying in the conflict, but, unfortunately, that is the outcome of war. Our involvement in this situation could spur a third global war and that could have disastrous consequences on a level hard to fathom in the modern mind.
Here’s more from Newsmax:
Biden, in a statement issued during his vacation in St. Croix, said the overnight attack, which killed 31 civilians and wounded over 120 across Ukraine, was the largest aerial assault since Moscow launched its invasion in February 2022.
“It is a stark reminder to the world that, after nearly two years of this devastating war, Putin’s objective remains unchanged. He seeks to obliterate Ukraine and subjugate its people. He must be stopped,” Biden went on to say of the situation.
Biden said Ukraine used air defense systems that the United States and its allies and partners had provided to successfully intercept and destroy many of the missiles and drones launched by Russia, and he urged Congress to approve continued aid.
“Unless Congress takes urgent action in the new year, we will not be able to continue sending the weapons and vital air defense systems Ukraine needs to protect its people. Congress must step up and act without any further delay,” the president said.
The United States on Thursday said it would provide up to $250 million in arms and equipment to Ukraine in a final aid package this year, as top officials continued to urge lawmakers to approve another $61 billion in aid to the war-torn country.
It really seems like Biden has been working hard to get us pulled into a foreign war, doesn’t it? What does he have to gain from such a scenario unfolding on the geopolitical stage? Well, it would certainly be a big distraction from the investigation into the alleged influence peddling scheme he and his family likely participated in during his tenure as vice president under the leadership of former President Barack Obama.
And let’s not forget we’re in the middle of a presidential election cycle.
Members of the GOP are not on board with the approval of the assistance that is being requested by the president unless he finally gets off his backside and does something to increase security along the southern border we share with Mexico. Of course, the current administration is doing what liberals always do, utilizing scare tactics to justify additional appropriation of funding from the United States, claiming Ukraine’s funding will run out by the end of the year and thus negatively impact the country’s battle to recapture land now being occupied by Russian military forces.
Congress has approved more than $110 billion for Ukraine since Russia’s invasion, but it has not approved any funds since Republicans took control of the House of Representatives from Democrats in January 2023. Biden said the stakes of the fight extended far beyond Ukraine to the entire NATO alliance and the security of Europe, and warned of risks to the United States.
“When dictators and autocrats are allowed to run roughshod in Europe, the risk rises that the United States gets pulled in directly,” the president remarked. “We cannot let our allies and partners down. We cannot let Ukraine down. History will judge harshly those who fail to answer freedom’s call.”
