Since some of the usual trolls have felt the need to make a case out of this, here’s what I actually wrote about a possible war in the Ukraine.
There may indeed be an invasion and a war, but it won’t involve the United States.
Eastern Europe, like the Middle East, has been learning the hard way that America under the Democrats isn’t an ally and can’t be counted on to do anything except issue press releases and sell it out.
The Middle East responded with the Abraham Accords that are continuing to bring together Israel and the Sunni oil kingdoms over a shared disappointment with Obama and Biden. Eastern Europe will also have to look inward, building new internal alliances to avert not only outright invasions, but assaults like the mass of Iraqi Muslim migrants hurled at Poland’s border by Putin’s puppet in Belarus and the migrant attacks on Hungary’s territorial borders.
The key point was not that there wouldn’t be a war, but that it wouldn’t involve American troops.
The thrust of the article was not that Putin wouldn’t invade (though I admit he struck harder and more comprehensively than I initially expected based on past history in Georgia and Crimea), but that there would be no military confrontation between Russia and the United States.
And I continue to stand by that. I wonder how anyone, seeing Biden’s performance, would contend otherwise.
(Personal note. I’ve been to the ER this week. I’m still unable to sit or to write for more than a few minutes at a time. And my brain is somewhat fogged by painkillers. If my writing seems more off or sloppy, that’s why. I am doing my best to carry on.)
