The Biden administration is going to take us to war with Russia because his poll numbers are in the toilet, and it might as well be Ukraine we are doing it over, because after all, they paid for it.

The troops are moving. It looks like the following troops are being deployed to the area:

  • 82nd Airborne division is contributing an infantry brigade combat team
  • The XVIII Airborne Corps is moving a field headquarters to Germany
  • It also looks like the Second Cavalry Regiment (Stryker) will be deploying there from Germany.

The 82nd, being an airborne division, doesn’t have heavy enough equipment to take on the armor and artillery heavy Russian forces. The Stryker is essentially an armored car, and is by no means capable of taking on Russian main battle tank formations, especially considering that they are outnumbered and outgunned.

On the other side of the coin, we have the Russian forces. Nearly half of Russia’s 280,000 strong Army is arrayed near Ukraine. The Russians have amassed more than 1,000 tanks in theater.

This is a conflict that the limited number of US troops in theater can’t hope to win. This means one of two things: these troops are sacrificial lambs who will act as a tripwire to allow US expansion of the conflict, or that the Democrats are thinking that Russia will blink.

For those of you who think that the Republicans will oppose this, you have another thing coming. In fact, the Republicans in Congress told Tucker Carlson “We’re the decision-makers on Ukraine, not you” in a recent release that was intended to respond to the harsh criticism that Carlson has levied against Ukraine involvement.

“I don’t agree with those views,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said when asked about Carlson’s monologues. “[It’s] the U.S. interest not just in Europe but around the world in not having countries decide, ‘That belongs to us, we’re going to go ahead and take it.’”

I agree that one country shouldn’t be able to simply invade another. I also agree that it isn’t a problem that US citizens should be dying to correct. All of this could be avoided by simply not admitting Ukraine to NATO. Why should we go to war and chance a world war that would cost millions of American lives, all so that we can defend another country? Of course, that isn’t what all of this is about.

Joe Biden owes the Ukraine because he was bought and paid for by the ten percent he got as “the big guy.” Besides, he is lagging in the polls, and there is nothing like a war to boost sagging poll numbers.

It’s insane.

That’s why there’s a big push to defend the Ukraine.

It’s not about American interests. It’s about defending the money-laundering system the Beltway uses to fleece taxpayers and line their own pockets. They really don’t want Putin disrupting that, and they really, REALLY do not want Putin finding dirty laundry if his boys collect the right data.

Now, the Russian military is relatively untested … but as Stalin said, quantity has a quality all its own. And as far as I can tell they are not saddled with notions like ‘diversity’ or ‘genderqueer’ in the rank and file.

I have a bad feeling that the Dems expect Putin to blink, and he’s gonna call their bluff.

The positioning and composition of these troops appears to me to be no more than huffing and puffing by Biden, Austin, and Milley. IF Russia “invades” Ukraine, the 2,000 in Poland will have a dangerous stretch of ground to reach the Donbas. The Stryker battalion in Romania has less distance to travel, but as you pointed out, a lightly armored troop carrier would easily be destroyed once it was in range of a tank’s main gun. During the transition across Ukraine, they would be subject to air and artillery strikes that would destroy the vehicle and it’s cargo of infantry. This is a bluff. And Putin won’t be impressed. I’m sure he laughed as soon as he heard about the meager offering.

The CPUSA cookie jar is the Ukraine and did that prosecutor get fired that Blue Screen Brandon demanded be let go after he got too close to the truth?
Their kids won’t be fighting there so they don’t care and MEAL Team 6 is expendable cannon fodder easily placated with a buffet line or EBT card.
The rainbow rump rangers will have a hard time if they end up as prisoner of war.
