When we as a country draw a line in the sand, it needs to be a direct threat to another country, and they should know that we’re serious. With President Joe Biden, Russia doesn’t seem to take us seriously, and honestly, they shouldn’t.
That may seem harsh and pro-dictator, but Biden showed his weakness with the withdrawal from Afghanistan and his cognitive decline. It sets a dangerous precedent over foreign conflict when Biden praises his disaster. It also showed great weakness when Biden waived sanctions on Russian with the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, “President Biden made clear that the United States and its allies and partner will respond decisively if Russia further invades Ukraine.”
She stated that NATO and the US are attempting to protect the peace through diplomatic efforts, “beginning next week with the bilateral Strategic Stability Dialogue, at NATO through the NATO-Russia Council, and at the Organization for Security and Cooperation. In Europe.”
Ukraine said that Russia sent tanks and sniper teams across the Ukraine border to Donbas even with peace talks ongoing.
Psaki also said that Biden made it clear that the US and allies “will respond decisively if Russia further invades Ukraine.” So, if Russia has further invaded Ukraine, why isn’t Biden doing anything?
Biden continues to push his idea that economic measures may be necessary and has pushed de-escalation.
The White House said, “President Biden reiterated his support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and called for de-escalation and a return to diplomacy.”
The conflict isn’t new, and it shows that Biden’s unwillingness to hold Russia accountable before will come back to haunt Ukraine and the rest of Europe as Russia slowed down natural gas supplies. Europe is turning to alternative energy methods to provide their citizens to further their dedication to ending climate change and finding an alternative fuel source.
I believe we can all agree that this would not be happening if former President Donald Trump were still in power. Though relations between Russia and the US have been escalating over the years, Trump had a way of finding agreements amid chaos and proved that he could deal with other countries in a diplomatic way rather than escalating conflict. Trump would have already been in Russia speaking to Vladimir Putin in person if he had the opportunity.
Then, there’s the national defense budget strategy. After the war in Afghanistan, Biden wants to further conflict abroad, and his administration is doing nothing about it. There’s always been a correlation between competition and profit. If Biden stays true to the Democrat and Republican party history, there’s going to be another conflict to pad the pockets of special interests and stock investments.
