Biden's War, A Slow-Motion Train Wreck We Cannot Stop!

A great deal has been written about what is occurring in Ukraine, some of it true, much of it not. Unfortunately, two sides exist to most stories, and to those of us skeptical of the path Biden is hellbent on pursuing, it feels like we are watching a slow-motion train wreck. This is something that has taken on a life of its own and we are powerless to stop it. With each passing day we hear more about billions and billions of American taxpayer dollars being shipped off to the failed state known as Ukraine. Yes, we are talking billions!

Picture Of A Fool Playing With Fire recently reported, that instead of supporting negotiations between Ukraine and Russia that could lead to a ceasefire and an end to the bloodshed, Biden and the US government are actually escalating the situation. A prime example of Biden pushing forward the military conflict was evident during a key speech in Poland where he called for regime change in Russia with the words "this man cannot remain in power". 

Biden's words were not some off-the-cuff “gaffe,” it was part of, and the high note of a carefully choreographed, “legacy-defining” speech. Biden's comment caused such a violent reaction from across the world that the White House had to swoop in to clarify that Biden was condemning Russia's efforts to control the region and not altering the power structure within Russia itself. Even Secretary of State Antony Blinken had to step in and calm things down by clarifying "we do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia."

All this was the second time in just a few days that Biden "let it slip" he wanted regime change in Russia thus creating speculation about whether he would be willing to let American boots on the ground become part of NATO's strategy. In short, this is Biden's war. It often appears everything the Biden administration does is geared at taking our eyes off the nightmare forming here in America from his disastrous inept leadership. How quickly he tries to forget the awful mess his incompetent administration made exiting Afghanistan. 

With the current full-fledged media assault Biden and mainstream Western media has unleashed upon Putin it is little wonder why Russia is slow to respond or so far has declined to engage in talks. Media coverage has become so one-sided and biased that it is impossible to know what the situation within Ukraine really is. Through all this, one thing is crystal clear, and that is the warmongers are coming out of the woodwork to bash Putin for finally saying enough is enough and finally taking action.

Well, they got what they wanted and that is another proxy war in an area of the world where most of the people just wanted to live in peace. It would be wise to remember that warfare has proven to be a pathetic option to bring about positive change. War may change things, but to what degree and for how long.  In this case, the signs of censorship and calling those skeptical of national policy traitors, all point to ushering in a world where few of us would want to live. A place ruled by the so-called New World Order, a place where our rights and wishes are ignored even more than they are today. 

The fact is, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Whether you consider Putin a thug and a bully may depend on if he agrees with you. Putin's biggest crime is that with blunt rhetoric he has refused to accept for Russia a subservient role in an American-run world under a system drawn up by our politicians and business leaders. It could be argued that Biden is following Obama's playbook when it comes to Putin and America has adopted a foreign policy so stupid that it results in driving our chief adversaries into each other's arms. 

Many people consider the policy Obama employed to isolate Putin backfired and only enhanced his image. It also caused Putin to turn Eastward and expand economic ties with China. This pivot has resulted in a major shift in the world power structure. Demonizing Russia has been reinforced by a national security apparatus so entrenched in a cold war mindset they have lost all appearance of objectivity. Those with this bias are always pounding on the drums of fear and touting Russia, which is far from an economic power, as a major threat to America and our way of life.

This has made the world a far more dangerous place. By increasing tensions to an unnecessary level, we have increased the possibility of nuclear war. Like many people, I do not find what is known as the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction, or MAD to be reassuring. What the world would look like following a nuclear war is very murky, yet today it seems many people consider nuclear weapons as just another tool or option for us to use in our defense if we are attacked.

History has time and time established that the loss of an individual life is often insignificant except to their loved ones. Also, one of the harsh realities of modern war is that it  has become a less personal way to die. In truth, the nuclear deterrent we hold is a hundred times larger than needed to stop anyone sane or rational from attacking America, and for anyone else, an arsenal of any size will be insufficient. 

Sadly, over the years, as nuclear proliferation increased, the threshold for using nuclear weapons seems to have fallen. Those of us growing up during the Cold War and the Cuban missile crisis most likely remember the U.S. government’s civil defense film titled,  "Duck and Cover." Sadly, if enough nuclear bombs explode, dropping to the ground and covering your head will not prove a life-saving maneuver.

  1. Make NO mistake, this is what the Neocons running our federal government wanted. America's #1 export is War. For many decades America has put its own people in harms way by creating enemies and having our men and women fight these wars. Its main business is to light a bag of dog poop on its neighbors front door, ring the doorbell, then run away to leave the unlucky recipient to clean up the mess.

    Neocons have made boogeymen out of Saddam Hussein, Assad, Gaddafi and now Putin. Next up is Xi. That's where our tax dollars go to. Meanwhile our infrastructures, roads and bridges are decaying. Trillions spent to create chaos in other countries.

    Meanwhile our President who many believe is 48 cards short of a full deck was rambling the other day at the Rose Garden how he remembers being an 18 wheeler truck driver. Say what? Once his speech was over he turned to his handlers and asked them: "So what do I do now?". That's who the Neocons decided would be best to antagonize and possibly start a war with Russia.

    This is what happens to ALL Empires when they are in decline. They use their military might to threaten and beat down their neighbors.

    1. neocons is right. nuland kagan was the tell. as gwh bush explained to his dimmer son when he asked what the neocons were: israel.

  2. We are a great example of do as I say not as I do. We make money wars and if anyone rises up they will be convicted of war crimes.

  3. US Congress is bought and sold on both sides of the house by big finance, big oil, big pharma and big MIC.
    Who else could have selected such a dimwit as Biden to lead the free world. The man cant tie his own shoelaces.
    Which is why the free world is going down but hopefully not out.
    Ukraine is the decoy, undermining the petrodollar with yuan and ruble the main game.
    High/hyperinflation in US will result, at a time when US cannot afford high interest rates.
    All Americans will pay and be much poorer.

  4. It is so disheartening to see what a small, focused group can do to the world. The damage they can inflict. They all should be imprisoned for the rest of their lives. Let them reflect on the damage they are and have done to humanity.

    1. They are psychopath's and as such they have NO morale compass or conscience. They strictly exist for power. It's similar when top Neocon Madeline Albright was asked whether the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was justified. She answered yes.

      Neocons and psychopath's only care about control and power. Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, George Soros along with his heir apparent son etc don't give a crap about we The People.

      Some people believe in Hell and i'll leave that for others but that would be an appropriate place for these monsters. The GOOD NEWS is, that this will all come crashing down before they fully realize their plans. That's why these types have purchased bunkers so as to avoid the chaos.
