JEA: If you think that Republican warmongers have learned something from perpetual wars in the Middle East and elsewhere, then you’ve got another thing coming.

Republican prostitute Ted Crus has recently declared that supporting Ukraine is vital to the US national security! Ted Cruz obviously knows that he is peddling the Neocon ideology. But the world is now waking up. People like Ted Cruz can no longer tell all of us what to think.

Sen. Cruz, Gen. Milley, Zelensky Say Ukraine Is Vital to National Security

As the costs of supporting Ukraine’s war effort soar well beyond $50 billion, high-level officials are seeking to sell Americans on even more military spending, with senators, generals and the Ukrainian president himself each insisting aid to Kiev is vital to American interests, amid rampant inflation, mounting shortages and monumental public debt in the US.

In a statement justifying a recent vote to send another $40 billion in assistance to Ukraine, Republican Senator Ted Cruz argued the move was essential not only for the security of the US, but to ward off a Chinese attack on Taiwan as well.

“If Putin wins in Ukraine, it will confirm for Xi that he can confidently invade Taiwan,” he said, referring to the Russian and Chinese heads of state.

“The reason we should support our Ukrainian allies is because it protects American national security, it keeps America safer, and it prevents our enemies from getting stronger, from threatening the safety and security of Americans, and from driving up the cost, the economic damage, to Americans,” Cruz added.

 

Following repeated appeals for additional Western arms, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is now warning that American troops may have to face down the Russians if they are not stopped in Ukraine, adopting a version of the ‘fight them over there…’ slogan popular during the US War on Terror.

“If we fall, if we don’t hold the line, Russia will proceed, attacking the Baltic states – Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia…The US military will have to go to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, according to the fifth article, and they will have to fight there and die there,” he said in an interview with Axios on Monday, citing NATO’s Article 5 collective defense provision.

During his West Point commencement speech over the weekend, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley echoed similar sentiments regarding Ukraine, all while predicting that future wars would be fought against ‘great powers’ like Russia and China.

In a further callback to the Cold War, the top US military officer asserted that such powers would only be encouraged if acts of “aggression” are not met with a serious response.

“Yet again in Ukraine, we are learning the lesson that aggression left unanswered only emboldens the aggressor,” he said.

The three statements somewhat resemble the Cold War-era ‘domino theory,’ which contended that the presence of Communism in one country would quickly spread into neighboring states – a key public rationale behind US intervention in Vietnam.

However, former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara acknowledged in 1995 that the theory did not play out as predicted, stating,

“I think we were wrong. I do not believe that Vietnam was that important to the Communists. I don’t believe that its loss would have led – it didn’t lead – to Communist control of Asia.”

  1. TASS/ Russia’s State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin took to his Telegram channel to highlight that the US and its partners do not plan to provide real assistance to Ukraine.

    – Ukraine will only get 15% of the $40 billion promised by the US, he said.

    – “Washington and Brussels do not really intend to help Ukraine, or solve its economic and social issues. They only need Ukraine to fight Russia till the last Ukrainian,” Volodin said.

    – According to the recent aid to Ukraine legislation signed by President Joe Biden, 35% of the $40 billion is going to finance the US Armed Forces, he explained. Meanwhile, 45.2% of that amount is set to be spent on other countries, not Ukraine, while another 4.8% will be earmarked to support refugees, and restore the US diplomatic mission in Ukraine. “Ukraine will only receive 15% of the allotted sum,” the speaker revealed.

    – But Ukrainians will have to pay off the whole sum, he said. The US is aware that Kiev will not be able to service the debt in the future. “That is why they are seizing Ukraine’s last reserves, including grain, which is what we are seeing right now”.

  2. UKRAINE WAR, WHO IS IT VITAL TO?
    LOCKHEED MARTIN
    HALLIBURTIN
    BOEING
    RAYTHEON
    NORTHROP GRUMMAN

    SUPPORT OUR BRAVE CEO’S,
    DON’T QUESTION WARS!

  3. Few Ukrainians know that they will receive no more than 15% of those 40 billion dollars. The rest of the money will go to arming the countries that sponsor the war and logistics. But Ukraine will have to pay all 40 billion dollars.
    According to our media, the 20 million tons of grain that the West wants to pump out (and has already begun to do so) from Ukraine are worth $ 30 billion. And if there is a famine in Ukraine, it will be easy to blame the Russian Federation for this.

  4. No, Ukraine is not vital to the US in any way. But it is vital to the Khazarian Mafia Jews world conquest.
