Well Really, Are We So Ideologically Bankrupt on Ukraine?
Joe Biden has chosen to pour armaments into Ukraine in response to the Russian buildup of troops on the Ukrainian border. Well, why not? Surely if we arm the Ukraines and supply their flimsy army with weapons against one of the world’s largest military forces, no one will shoot. Obviously, in the face of such a threat the Russians will pack up their military might and go home, tail between legs.
Joe, you are obviously a statesman of rare ability—either that, or a witless politician trying to save face in a time when your political life is fragile, and do it at the expense of others. It is not your children who are at risk, not your cities that will be destroyed and not your blood spilled on the ground. You have chosen this, Joe. If Putin takes up your challenge, as he surely will, you will come down on him personally with the full force of personal financial sanctions, although he holds no foreign bank accounts or assets.
That oughta work out really well as a deterrent.
And so we meander…
