Apparently unnoticed by the MSM and the broader public is how the harsh rhetoric and provocative actions of President Biden are enabling Ukraine’s boldness via Russia including the threat by President Zelensky to build nuclear weapons. https://antibellum679354512.wordpress.com/2021/04/15/ukrainian-envoy-nato-or-nuclear-weapons/
As Mark Gaffney points out, this confrontation has “Biden “leading” the world to the brink of nuclear war over Ukraine!”
It is hard to put into words the seriousness of such brinkmanship on the part of the West that coupled with similar actions against China demonstrates a level of lust to obtain Pax Americana far exceeding any previous Administration.
Biden and his Democratic cohorts seem to be living out the wet dream of the Neocons who surfaced during the term of George W. Bush when they saw the 9/11 attack as an opportunity to achieve their quest for a unipolar moment.
Putin has shown clearly he will not be intimidated by all the huffing and puffing even if his enemies are not bluffing.
All it will take is one overly zealous general or even private to trigger a chain reaction of the kind that launched WWI for push to come to shove for a global conflagration.
With bipartisan support in the Senate to block the US from withdrawing from NATO as President Trump suggested, the true nature of American Imperialism is on full display for all to see how devoted both parties are to implementing their vision for global domination.
Biden appears to be all in for war against Russia with Ukraine as his proxy. Calling Russia an “unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States” is beyond inflammatory and has provoked a strong response from Moscow to the tune of half a million soldiers.
One would think that after two world wars that began in Europe, the world would have learned the weakness of our current international system and the failure of leaders from that part of the globe to shape a viable planetary peace.
Hopefully sanity will prevail and the lessons of history will somehow impact the thinking of these individuals to stop the rush towards war! We need more voices other than Tulsi Gabbard’s reminding us to “stop the saber rattling and begin de-escalation!”
