US Troops Going To Eastern Europe

To NATO allies, for now.

Echoing Woodrow Wilson on WWI, Franklin Roosevelt on WWII, and Lyndon Johnson on Vietnam, Joe Biden has assured Americans there will be no US troops going to Ukraine.

FNC: “President Biden made clear Tuesday that there would not ‘be any American forces moving into Ukraine,’ though U.S. troops could be moved to Europe in the ‘near term.’ The troops may head to NATO front-line countries if Russian begins a large military operation against Ukraine.

Biden’s comments to reporters in Washington come as the White House has urged Americans to leave Ukraine, saying that the security situation in the region ‘can deteriorate with little notice.'” Translation: Start humming “Over There”, the Yanks are on the way. Oh joy.

“There are reports Russia is planning significant military action against Ukraine. The security conditions, particularly along Ukraine’s borders, in Russia-occupied Crimea, and in Russia-controlled eastern Ukraine, are unpredictable and can deteriorate with little notice,” said a State Department travel advisory Sunday.

“There will be enormous consequences if he were to go and invade … for Russia,” Biden said. “Not only in terms of economic consequences and political consequences, but there would be enormous consequences worldwide. If he were to move in with all those forces, it would be the largest invasion since World War II.” China interceded in China in 1950. Four Warsaw Pact nations invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968. There are other examples. The man has no knowledge of even recent history.

Ukrainian officials are trying to play down the risk. “There are risky scenarios. They’re possible and probable in the future,” Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said Monday. “But as of today…such a threat doesn’t exist.”

A military veteran and long time associate of this writer comments from Latvia, a NATO frontline state, on the mood there. “Mostly preoccupied with COVID – medical masks required as of today. President (aka “Rat Whiskers”) asked for more NATO presence in the Baltic. Latvia has drawn up a plan for removal of citizens from Ukraine, but hasn’t initiated anything. So really, nothing much. Pretty run of the mill, actually.”

Meanwhile, the US has sent fighter jets to Estonia. “Baltic and enhanced Air Policing are enduring NATO missions that deliver constant vigilance of Allied airspace and contribute to the Alliance’s collective defence posture,” Major General Jöerg Lebert, Chief of Staff, Headquarters Allied Air Command said. “The additional aircraft will work closely with the current detachments to increase our readiness, build crucial interoperability and underline the robust solidarity across the Alliance.”

A senior American administration official commented on possible action against Russia if Ukraine is invaded. “I would say, a deepening selloff in Russian markets, its borrowing costs, the value of its currency market, imply default risk, reflect the severity of the economy consequences we can and will impose on the Russian economy in the event of a further invasion.”

Let us back up 10 feet or one year and look at why this is happening: Oh yes, Biden is now (illegitimately) the President. Putin regards Biden like an ice-cream cone wrapper. Garbage. Where is the Republican side of Congress? Why, they are providing us proof that they are nothing more than part of the Deep State.

The logic is sound. Take the opposite of what a Democrat says and you are much closer to the truth.

Let the nukes fly this is what NWO wants! America’s pattern is a pattern of other people’s kids’ life being lost after years of dead-end war. Rain Man told us it will be dark winter; he just left out the part of a nuclear winter.

Russian invasion of Ukraine? Russian aggression? Only just a potential? Hasn’t really happened. But, Hurry! Send thousands of American Troops to the other side of the planet.

Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are invading our Southern Border and being escorted to towns and cities all over the country. Apparently there are no concerns or need to send ‘thousands of American troops’ to our own border?

What the hell is going on here? Who’s running the Animal Farm?

Given the nature of how corrupt the U.S. administration is on a globalist scale; and considering that Biden Inc, which is really the Hillary Clinton foreign policy establishment, would give Zelensky the full Gaddafi treatment if it helped them gain wealth, power and influence; it really would be in Ukraine’s best interest for Zelensky to open a dialogue with Vladimir Putin.
