United States President Joe Biden may be hesitant to get the United States directly involved in a shooting war with Russia, but it’s clear that many of his handlers and aides don’t share his reservations.
Military aid from the United States to Ukraine keeps flowing, and the form of aid being offered is becoming increasingly more powerful and deadly, with the most recent package set to include hundreds of drones, helicopters, artillery rounds, five hundred javelin missiles, and unmanned coastal defense vessels.
Poland has confirmed it has sent tanks to the region and Germany has recently announced it would do the same.
Ukrainian troops are being trained in Poland and have recently received training in Britain and the United States.
To make matters worse, United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin went to Ukraine and arrogantly asserted that America’s goal was to ensure Russia would be too weak to ever invade another nation again.
The response from Russia was subdued yet clear: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that NATO is “in essence engaged in war with Russia”, and chillingly noted that “the risks of nuclear war are now very significant.”
The consequences of America escalating the conflict and pushing Russia to do the same will almost certainly affect the lives of billions of people the world over.
Those who are familiar with history will remember that the United States’ shipment of weapons to its ally Britain precluded its direct involvement in World War 1; indeed, it has been proven that there were weapons on the Lusitania at the time the Germans destroyed the boat and with it the lives of hundreds of innocent civilians.
While some in the United States were hesitant to reply to such a scenario at the onset of World War 2 in Europe, others pushed for the passage of the Lend-Lease agreement that passed in 1939 and thus enabled the United States to loan or give weapons to Great Britain after it declared war on Germany.
Once again, the United States is repeating history by arming a nation at war; the only difference this time is that the nation that NATO is engaging in conflict with has more nuclear warheads than any other nation on the face of the earth, and has made it clear that it’s not afraid to use them.
While members of President Joe Biden’s cabinet seem to have no problem with the potentially disastrous consequences of starting World War 3, the President himself seems to be clueless about what is going on right around him.
A recent video showed him shaking hands with an imaginary person after a public speech and then wandering about the stage trying to figure out where he should go.
It stands in stark contract to past appearances by president’s during periods of conflict, and makes it clearly that President Biden cannot possibly be in full control of his cabinet.
It’s a dangerous situation as many of the president’s cabinet members are either far too eager to start World War 3 or are completely ignorant about which steps should be taken to avoid such a conflict.
The United States’ recent moves make it clear that it wants to escalate conflict in the region.
Europe is also becoming increasingly belligerent, which would not happen without America’s consent and encouragement.
Russian FM Lavrov is right to note that NATO is essentially at war with his country and his assertion that “the risks of nuclear war are now very significant” should give any sensible person pause.
The United States has the power to rein in NATO, negotiate with Russia, and put an end to conflict in the region; unfortunately, those in power either have an ax to grind with Russia and don’t care about the consequences or are too befuddled to make decisions without input from warmongering cabinet members.
