This phony alleged war between Russia and Ukraine is getting ludicrous.
It must be embarrassing for the White House to keep saying day after day for weeks on end that Russia is likely to invade Ukraine any day now. Two weeks ago war was imminent, but they gave up using the term.
It must be embarrassing for the media to keep telling Americans half truths or no truths at all. For example you won't hear it from the media that Ukrainian forces outnumber the Russian strike force.
Then we have Putin continuing to make a fool of himself as he tries to legitimize war with the Russian people and not informing them of the dire circumstances. Body bags will begin to pile up as the Russian economy goes in the toilet caused by Western sanctions.
A few days after President Biden told the world that Putin decided to invade Ukraine, Putin agreed to a summit with Biden. "President Joe Biden
has agreed “in principle” to French-brokered summit talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin as long as Russia does not further invade Ukraine, the White House said late Sunday," CNN.
That summit may not happen because Putin made a fool of himself.
Putin decided to invade Ukraine.
reports, "The Kremlin has ordered Russia’s defense ministry to deploy troops in two Russia-backed separatist territories."
Putin told his nation that he had decided to recognize Russia-backed separatists in the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics. That is the Russian backed separatist region in eastern Ukraine. He told the Russian people he is sending "peacekeeping" army troops to keep the peace.
Actually, Russia invaded Ukraine eight years ago.
From the beginning of March 2014, in the aftermath of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution and the Euromaidan movement, protests by Russia-backed anti-government separatist groups took place in the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine, collectively called the Donbas region. As the conflict escalated in May 2014, Russia deployed irregular fighters, regular Russian troops, and conventional military support to destabilise the Donbas region.
Putin is doing nothing different. His B.S. may fool the Russian people, but it won't fool the West and certainly not the U.N. Security Council.
The media is not telling the whole story, and it fails to tell the American people that Russian troops have been in the Donbas region for eight years. We are being led to believe this is new. That this is an invasion.
