Right on schedule.
In my article earlier this month, “The Truth About Biden’s Fake War With Russia”, I wrote that, “Democrats have played this game for a while, building up tensions with Russia in the media, while remaining good friends behind the scenes. The more the public thinks a war might happen, the tougher and more heroic the Democrat in the White House seems. And when a war that was never going to happen, doesn’t happen, they also look like great peacemakers.”
Here we go. Time to put on a show and collect the winnings.
President Joe Biden has agreed “in principle” to French-brokered summit talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin as long as Russia does not further invade Ukraine, the White House said late Sunday.
The meeting, according to press secretary Jen Psaki, would occur after US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov meet on February 24.
Still, in a statement, Psaki appeared to downplay the prospects of a meeting actually materializing given what US officials have said the high likelihood is Putin could launch an invasion soon. And other US officials made clear no plans – either on timing, format or location – currently exist for the two leaders to meet.
Why agree to a summit if you don’t think it’s going to happen? And why would Putin agree to a summit considering that there’s nothing actually stopping him from going in if he wants to? Despite media hype, the Biden administration has made it clear that it will not do anything to stop Russia militarily.
To put it simply, there’s nothing to actually discuss except a proposal that Biden pressure the Ukraine into cutting a deal with Russia, in exchange for which Biden will claim that he prevented WWIII and deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.
That’s exactly the game that’s being played here.
The more the hype builds up, the more Jennifer Rubin will be able to claim that Biden is a world statesman.
