Half the time, one wonders if Putin is biding his sweet time while he chuckles over what the Biden administration will or won’t do.
One thing that the administration certainly will not do is demonstrate real strength, though it will sure talk as though it does.
Just consider Vice President Kamala Harris’s rather humorous “threats” against Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“If Russia and Vladimir Putin violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine there’s going to be serious consequences, and we’re very clear about that,” Harris declared.
That “warning” from Harris is likely about as effective as her ominous “don’t come,” warning to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants that began stampeding towards the border shortly after Emperor Biden was swept into the Oval Office.
Moreover, Putin can also personally observe (and likely laugh at) massive caravans of illegal immigrants swarming towards the United States, clearly ignoring Harris and her so-called attack on the “root causes” of illegal immigration.
Hint: A wide open border certainly constitutes a “root cause.”
Given that hundreds of thousands of Hondurans brazenly disregard Harris, is it any surprise that well over 100,000 troops are now amassed on the border of Ukraine?
The United States currently won’t defend even its own borders, never mind the borders of someone else.
Unless something is in it for “the Big Guy,” which, knowing Hunter’s track record in Ukraine, may well be the case.
As far as the “serious” consequences posited by Harris, Biden himself has little to offer.
In fact, Biden has basically said that he won’t directly intervene in Ukraine, nor will he send American troops to fight in Ukraine directly.
Instead, the Biden administration is opting to merely increase the presence of American troops in nations near the crisis.
“We’re going to actually increase troop presence in Poland, in Romania, et cetera, if in fact he moves,” Biden blared, adding that both nations “are part of NATO.”
Well, that’s a masterful military strategy. Clearly, troops are already present in both Poland and Romania, and merely “increasing” them may not achieve much in the face of a vastly more competent, and determined, Putin.
However, to his “credit,” at least Biden recognizes the significance of an invasion of Ukraine (or, more accurately, his advisors do), which is likely why he began bloviating about “the largest invasion since World War Two.”
“This would be the largest – if he were to move in with all those forces, it’d be the largest invasion since World War Two,” Biden declared, adding that such an invasion “would change the world.”
You don’t say … and you think Hunter got that diamond from the Chinese for free?
After all, if the entire planet is distracted by Putin, who knows what China may be (literally) cooking up within its own borders to inflict upon the world next?
On top of that, even when the whole world is focused on Putin, Biden apparently has little to offer in terms of predicting what Putin may do next.
When a reporter asked Biden whether he thinks Putin may invade all of Ukraine or just “part” of Ukraine, Biden decided to finally be “completely honest” about knowing essentially nothing.
“You know, I’ll be completely honest with you,” Biden mused, “it’s a little bit like reading tea leaves.”
“Reading tea leaves.”
Great. That’s just great.
Putin has over 100,000 troops ready to invade Europe, not to mention a number of other “surprises” in store in the cyber world in all likelihood, and the President of the United States has decided to refer to “tea leaves” in response to rather serious questions about global security.
One thing is for sure: Biden’s words are Putin’s gain.
