The Biden Administration’s handling of the Ukraine conflict has boosted inflation in the United States, sending the costs of food and fuel rising while leading many to warn of a worldwide famine due to food shortages.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear things will get better at any point in the future. Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks recently proclaimed that the administration is “trying to take a longer-term approach to supporting Ukraine five, ten, and twenty years into the future.”
NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg has bluntly stated that western populations “Must not let up in supporting Ukraine, even if the costs are high, not only for military support, [but] also become of rising energy and food prices.”
President Biden is sending yet another arms package to Ukraine; this time it’s costing American taxpayers $1.2 billion and the package includes advanced rocket systems, artillery, and coastal defenses. Put simply, the administration isn’t concerned with ending the conflict but rather with prolonging it, even if it costs the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people.
It’s difficult if not impossible to see how the United States would survive a prolonged proxy conflict with Russia, even if President Biden does manage to keep American soldiers and nuclear weapons out of the conflict. The conflict started on February 24, 2022, which means the two nations have been at war for only four months.
The inflation rate in the United States has risen by a whopping 8.3% in the last twelve months alone, and experts estimate that more than one-third of this inflation is a direct result of the Ukraine War. If the conflict went on for a year; that is, until February 2023, the United States would experience an additional 5% rise in inflation based on the conflict alone.
The gas and grocery rationing that is now taking place in Europe would almost certainly become a reality here. What’s more, there is a very real chance that the left-wing nutjobs who are calling for the Biden Administration to put price controls in place will get their way, bringing about the devastating shortages seen in Venezuela. The current inflation rate, as difficult as it is for many Americans to handle right now, could seem like “the good days” in the future.
At the same time, there is also the very real risk that the warmongers in the Biden Administration will manage to turn the current Ukraine-Russia war into a World War. Ukraine is losing, as even the mainstream media and Biden officials are being forced to concede that Russia has the upper hand in the conflict.
While the mainstream media is repeatedly telling the public that Ukraine just needs more weapons in order to win, the truth is that it’s also running out of soldiers. Deaths are taking a toll and some are even deserting as they realize there is no hope of victory on the horizon.
Russia is regularly bombing western weapons shipments to Ukraine; what’s more, even advanced weaponry that makes it to the front lines can’t be used to its full potential due to lack of training. The only way warmongers in the Biden Administration can prolong the conflict is to drag the United States into it; unfortunately, the President, who is currently standing in the way of full-fledged war, isn’t “all there” mentally and could, with a bit of effort, be replaced or at least pushed into war against his wishes.
The Biden Administration is obviously eager to keep the Ukraine war going indefinitely, even though tens of thousands of people could die either as a direct result of the conflict or as a result of the food and fuel shortages the prolonged conflict will bring about. What’s more, the longer the conflict runs, the higher the odds are that the United States and NATO will get directly involved even though such involvement could easily start a World War involving the use of nuclear weapons.
American leaders during the Cold War understood the dangers of such a conflict and did everything in their power to prevent it; unfortunately, those holding the reins today seem to be doing everything they can to push Russia into using its massive nuclear arsenal.
