THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD – NO, HE'S NOT JOE BIDEN!
JOE IS STILL SPINNING AROUND AFTER OBAMA’S VISIT, LOOKING FOR ANYONE TO SHAKE HIS HANDS. SO FAR, NO TAKERS.
Biden’s manifest of weaponry to Ukraine included 100 Switchblade drones costing $6000 each. A few were delivered after a month of promises (the check is in the mail Biden figuratively told the Ukrainian leader).
The United Kingdom is sending 6000 NLAWS, next gen light antitank weapons, costing $20,000 each.
Switchblade anti-tank/anti-armor weapons = $600,000. The UK’s = $120,000,000.
200 times the U.S.’ contribution for a manufactured war that should never have happened.
The U.S. population is fivefold the UK’s. Draw your own conclusions if you actually believe Joe Biden intended to help Ukraine – or just draw this war out indefinitely to benefit the Military-Industrial Complex?
Seriously, Russian soldiers are in Ukraine. Whose women should they rape, Finland’s?
Well, maybe they’re next.
The British antiarmor NLAWS have superior technology, redundancy, lock-on-and-forget laser-guidance, longer range, and are more powerful.
Biden is leading from behind Boris Johnson and NATO.
All certainly behind, after Boris went sightseeing in Kyiv, Joe Biden gave a speech to the nation:
You’ve just witnessed America’s future.
Kyiv is a pretty city and Boris isn’t there just for delights.
Boris knows, we know, Zelenskyy knows, Putin knows.
Biden intends for a stalemate and years of fighting in Ukraine. Biden has been busy destabilizing the United States, and he’s hoping to destabilize Europe too, and the Mideast, while Obama is still in the Oval Office dictating from Biden’s chair.
Boris Johnson has every right to transfer weapons to Ukraine. He may not get the outcome he wanted. However, you have finally met THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD, and his name is not Joe Biden.
“Late Wednesday, The Daily Mail published what it called “unearthed footage” of a naked Hunter Biden telling a prostitute that “the Russians have videos of me doing crazy f-cking sex!” According to The Daily Mail, “after filming himself having sex with the woman using his laptop in January 2019, Hunter left the camera rolling as he recounted a Vegas bender in which he spent ‘18 days going round from penthouse suite to penthouse suite,’ sometimes costing $10,000 a night.”
NEW YORK POST MAY 21, 2021! “The Democrats have shamelessly fluctuated on Russian policy. And it is not only that many of the same officials crafting Biden’s foreign policy mocked Mitt Romney for warning about Russian geopolitical threats. Even before President Barack Obama asked Vladimir Putin’s flunky Dmitry Medvedev to “transmit” his promise “to Vladimir” about “flexibility” on missile defense, the United States had canceled the sale of American missile-defense systems to our allies in Poland and the Czech Republic.
It was Obama who spent two years trying to kill the Magnitsky Act. It was Obama who allowed Russia to operate with impunity in Syria to protect the prospects of the Iran deal. It was Joe Biden, not Comrade Trump, who championed the “reset” and capitulated to Russia upon accession to the World Trade Organization.
All of these were forgotten when the media decided that American democracy had been stolen by a smattering of Facebook ads and some Twitter bots. As this went on, the Trump administration opened up the sale of lethal weapons to Ukraine — including Javelin anti-tank missiles. It was President Donald Trump who reinstated sales of Patriot missile-defense systems to Eastern Europe and continued to impose sanctions and other measures…”
It was Joe Biden who shut down American energy while opening up Russia’s Nordstream II to benefit Russian energy. Repeat after me: “Russia Collusion”!
In the Stalinist era dug up “dirt” was called KOMPROMAT.
We know what Putin intended. He told us.
WHAT AMERICANS AND EUROPEANS DON’T HAVE ARE THE FACTS.
THE ONLY FACT AT THIS POINT IS – NATO CANNOT GO INTO UKRAINE.
These are detailed by my once-associate, Pulitzer Prize winner Fred Kaplan, of Pentagon Papers fame.
Did you know for example, that Khruschev gave Crimea to Ukraine as a good-will gesture?
READ: A BRIDGE TOO FAR
Kaplan encompassed the balanced facts leading up to the current crisis – as there are at least three sides to every story.
NATO has no business entering Ukraine until it will. NATO has no business placing forces in close proximity to threaten the Russian’s sense of security and peace. Both Europe and Russia have a right to a good night’s sleep.
If Russia persisted however in massacring civilians – potential genocide, in other words, having dramatically undermined its case, or assembled near the borders of any European state creating a direct threat - the U.S.-led NATO will need to reassess its position.
Meanwhile we need to turn the tables on the adversary using his own games, bomb the hell out of Iran now to force Russia to fight wars in several theaters, a circumstance Russia and China has caused the West.
Don’t count on Joe Biden who’s been slow-walking air to Ukraine. The leader of the free world, obviously, is Boris Johnson of the U.K.
G-d Save the Queen!
Both sides need to re-evaluate, take their responsibilities seriously, protect civilian populations and property from more harm, and need to back off as far from each other as the continent permits.
