Time for Biden to call Putin’s bulls – t nuke bluff

What will it take, America?

Seriously, what What else does Vladimir Putin need to do? before the world’s No. 1 superpower, the leader of the free world, and the owner of the greatest military force in history, can he stop him?

The cowardly Russian gangster has illegally invaded a sovereign democratic state and is using illegal marble bombs to kill innocent women and children in Ukrainian cities.

Everyone seems to agree that this is a flagrant violation of international law, a disgusting act of immorality and Putin is a despicable war criminal.

But no one dared to stop him.

Oh, the Ukrainians are tryingand God, what a wonderful brave and resilient person they are, led by their amazing inspiration. President, Volodymyr Zelensky.

I marveled at their heroism, their determination, their resolve for the fight despite overwhelmingly bad odds against a much larger and better equipped enemy.

Sadly, that fear does not go to President Biden, who seems to think that Putin can be defeated by Ukrainian resistance and Financial fines only.

He can not.

Putin is one of the richest men in the world thanks to decades of ruthlessly cultivating his home with the nefarious fruits of his corrupt regime.

He doesn’t care about sanctions or the collapse of the ruble, or some his oligarchs receive a pain in the wallet. He values ​​all the economic fallout into his evil master plan.

When the former KGB assassin became his president, all he cared about was his legacy, and he wanted to be the leader of Russia who restored the Soviet Union to its size and power. its legal force.

Biden seems to think that sanctions alone can stop Putin's fight.

Putin is a dictator – a vile bully, soulless, cynical and unconcerned with creating as many corpses to achieve his imperial ambitions.

The only language that men like him understand is brute force, not that of him temporarily dropping to his last $50 billion mark.

But right now, he feels the weakness of those who are able to control his temper, and especially in an American president he has witnessed the Afghan people abandon. The people of Afghanistan gave the Taliban wolves last summer.

Putin has calculated that the United States does not have the will to arrest him, so his absurd eloquence suggests that he will liberate Russia’s nuclear arsenal if America, or anyone else, tries.

By making this threat, he affirms himself as a delusional monster, but not the fool or maniac to begin something he knows cannot end with anything but death. instantly destroy everything he is fighting for.

Putin won’t have to hide from anyone, as long as the US has the power to vaporize him and his entire country in seconds.

That’s the whole point of nuclear deterrence, not that it is used as a protective shield for amnesiacs to invade countries and commit genocide against their own populations. .

However, that’s exactly what Putin is doing, and it’s time to call his bluff.

Last night, billionaire US investor Bill Ackman tweeted Biden, urge him to do more.

“Is there a point where we say it’s not American to sit back and watch the process?” he asks. “Putin was gathering his nuclear sword as he became more desperate. What if? Do we wait for him to kill millions before intervening? What precedent are we continuing to set by allowing this to happen? The defense of Ukraine is a just war. It’s not about oil or money. It’s about right and wrong, and those are the wars we should be fighting. And if we take a long-term view and punish the madmen for their actions, we can thwart their larger ambitions.”

He’s right, isn’t he?

And there is a good precedent for this.

When Saddam Hussein invaded Iraq’s neighbor Kuwait in 1990, the United States led a NATO military intervention, Desert Storm, which left him and his forces packed in just 43 days.

There is precedent in favor of US intervention to help defend Ukraine from Russia.

President George HW Bush explained his decision by saying: “The terrible crimes and torture that Saddam’s henchmen perpetrated on the innocent people of Kuwait is an affront to humanity. and a challenge to the freedom of all… no nation should be allowed to brutally attack its neighbour. ”

Bush later quoted two members of US forces tasked with liberating Kuwait.

“Listen to one of our great officers out there, Marine Lieutenant General Walter Boomer. He said: ‘There are things worth fighting for. A world where brutality and lawlessness are allowed to go unchecked is not the kind of world we would want to live in. ‘ And listen to Jackie Jones, an Army lieutenant, as she says, “If we let him get away with this, who knows what will happen next?”

Exactly.

It’s time for President Biden to stand up to Russian President Putin and his aggression in Ukraine.

The only difference between Saddam Hussein and Vladimir Putin is that the latter has nuclear weapons.

But the moral argument for US military intervention in Ukraine is the same as it was in Kuwait 32 years ago.

If the US allows Putin to use the threat of nuclear weapons to drive them away, Russia will continue its rampage over the nation as Nazi Germany did in 1938-9 and other enemies like China. China and North Korea may feel encouraged to start doing the same.

It would be like waving a white flag of surrender.

And as Bill Ackman said, this feels very un-American.
