And while negotiations between Russian and Ukrainian delegations are still ongoing to some degree, Vladimir Putin still has the audacity to call his actions in Ukraine... actions now deliberately targeting civilians...a “special operation.” Implemented not to occupy territory but to destroy Ukraine's military capabilities and capture dangerous “Ukrainian nationalists,” or so Putin says, yet the pictures and videos coming out of Ukraine definitely speak otherwise.
And now after a month of devastation the Ukrainians fight on no matter that Putin's military continues to shell and rocket bomb civilian areas. And while Russia has (thankfully) still failed to completely take over any of Ukraine's major cities, millions of Ukrainians have fled their homeland creating a humanitarian crisis on a scope Europe has not seen since the Second World War. And while I believe that most of these folks will return to Ukraine to help rebuild their now devastated country when this war is over, for the fact is that all wars do eventually come to an end. But as history has shown sometimes that end is not the end the aggressor hoped it would be, for in the case of Putin's war against Ukraine there is a chance that Putin's military will be the ones stumbling home with their collective tail between their legs.
“Every day we defend, we get closer to the peace we need so much ... and you can’t stop for a minute. Because every minute is about our destiny, it is about our future. About whether we live.” - Ukraine's President Zelensky's words before the start of the NATO and EU meetings...words that sum up the crux of the situation.
But all this is really par for the course for the fact is that all Joe Biden has done over these past few months in the lead-up to Putin's invasion of Ukraine is to re-instate Obama era polices, especially those in relation to sanctions, and spew the rhetoric told to him by Obama's former foreign policy so-called “experts”...“experts” who now hold places in the Biden administration or should I say Obama's finally gotten third term in office. And while Biden himself might have recently raised Putin's ire with his words that Putin is a “war criminal” guilty of “war crimes,” they are but mere empty words spoken for Joe Biden is doing nothing of real substance to help Zelensky and his forces "win this war," something a “no-fly zone” might help to accomplish. After all, Biden dare not cross Putin's “red line” drawn for fear that Putin will start divulging what he knows about his and Hunter's (and maybe even Obama's) shady, albeit profitable Ukrainian misdoings.
Ignoring the many reporters questions regarding a much needed clarification of those words, Joe Biden instead chose to announce that he's adding even more sanctions against both Russia and Russian oligarchs; increasing humanitarian and limited military aid to Ukraine; and is allowing 100,000 thousand Ukrainian refugees to come to the U.S. Sounds good on the surface yet it remains a limited in scope response to Zelensky's much needed wants, thus leaving the highlight of said presser to be when Biden once again put his foot in his mouth.
Really Joe...really...there's no shock here, but why then over these past few months did your talking heads spew the rhetoric that sanctions will work as a major touch point in helping to prevent Putin from if not going into Ukraine at least rendering it a “minor incursion” if he decides to do so. A “minor incursion”...the very two words giving Putin the go-ahead to do just that, and you did so for all to hear but a few short months ago in yet another nationally televised address. I'd say the answer as to why is pretty damn obvious, and it all boils down to the word “Burisma.”.
And then just this past Saturday before heading back to the U.S., Joe Biden in a private meeting with the Polish president and then in a televised speech for the whole world to hear said words that will become fodder for the history books. First, Biden had the audacity to say to Polish President Andrzej Duda that the United States understands Poland's decision to take in more than two million Ukrainian refugees due to Russia's invasion of their homeland, adding because "thousands of people a day, literally not figuratively, are crossing the U.S. southern border.” Really Joe...you are now equated people who are literally running for their very lives with ILLEGALS with their hands out being given red carpet treatment by Democrats in your party's quest to garner more votes. If that's not the epitome of shamefulness than I don't know what is.
But to make matters worse, during his what was to be solely a scripted speech before he returned to Washington, Joe Biden went off script and uttered nine little words that not only reignited another Cold War between the U.S. and Russia, but put the Ukrainian people and Ukraine itself in a dangerous position of becoming the touch point that does ignite World War III. In saying at the end of his speech, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Joe Biden not only negated our long standing policy regarding both nation building and that regime change in Russia is not the policy of the United States, but actually called for the elimination of Russia's leader.
And while Vladimir Putin now seems to
relish in channeling his inner Hitler, and while he truly, I believe,
should be removed as Russia's leader...preferably by an uprising of
the Russian people themselves...never in our country's history has a
sitting U.S. president called for another country's president...a
president of a country we technically are not at war with...to be
removed from office. That is akin to putting a bullseye on Putin's
back, and gives Putin both discourse and propaganda to use against the U.S. and Ukraine.
” is the very same man who not too long ago told President Zelensky to give in to Russia on certain what Vladimir Putin considers to be key points, thus negating the edge Ukraine now sees...the very edge that might just lead to Ukraine winning this war. What a sorry little man Joe Biden is and how far our beloved America has fallen under what is the Biden/Obama administration...an administration so out leagued in scope as witnessed by both Vladimir Putin's still dictating exactly how this war is to be and not be played, and by the brave and courageous new world leader-in-waiting...Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky. And of course not to be forgotten are those who are willing to fight for the true meaning of the word “freedom”...as in the Ukrainian people themselves. Case closed.
