Biden predicted that this would happen under Trump and not under a Biden admin. Oops. President "We had no idea that the Taliban would take over so quickly" Biden is a mess.I think the non-military response from the west has largely been quite good, so far. A unified response.
I wonder if it would have been as coordinated under Trump, or a helter skelter mess as I suspect. Probably wouldn't have even levied half the sanctions so far.
Oh wait, I forgot, Trump would have "projected strength" and prevented this altogether.
The scales of power are off balance. Between West and East, only East will invade and consume you. West won't lift a finger. In the coming decades you'll learn why this matters. China will take what it wants, and still we will not lift a finger.
It didn't happen under Trump because Trump was destroying NATO for Putin.
What are you still doing here? You're so far up Trump's ass, that by now you should be reaching Putin's ass. Human centipede style.
Good thing for them that inconsistency is a feature, not a bug.There seems to be no attempt to square the ideas that Biden isn't doing enough to stop Putin from invading Ukraine and also invading Ukraine is fine.
He got it from inside Tucker Carlson's butthole.
Did he? Please cite a reasonably neutral source. I'd say Biden (and virtually every rational person) knew Trump was being soft on Russia, but specifically predicting a Russian invasion of Ukraine? Not that I've seen.
Besides, it's a bit rich to claim "Biden is a mess" on this issue when you support pro-Putin politicians like Trump. If Trump had won the 2020 election, NATO wouldn't be offering a coordinated response — and Trump would probably be trying to downplay or even excuse the invasion of Ukraine.
It's fine to argue that the US should deploy troops in Ukraine to fight Russia.
It is simply inaccurate to say that we are part of any form of treaty obligation to do so.
