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.
