Joe Biden is reportedly considering sending some three to five thousand troops to Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia as part of an effort to protect NATO states near Russia, to ward off Russia, given their aggressive actions toward Ukraine. Other NATO countries might also be kicking in troops under this plan, according to Fox News.
This Biden military move might not only include troops; they're also considering naval vessels and aircraft.
This follows a report from the U.K. that Russia was plotting to try to install a pro-Kremlin government in Ukraine and boot out the pro-West Volodymyr Zelensky. Russia is denying this report and blaming the U.K. for spreading it.
This was also kicked off after Joe Biden appeared to give Russia a green light for a “minor incursion” on Wednesday, Jan. 19. Since then, the tension seems to have kicked up a lot. Russia has more than 100,000 troops perched on the border with Ukraine, and aircraft in Belarus poised near Ukraine.
K.T. McFarland, deputy national security adviser to former President Donald Trump, told Fox News Digital that President Biden has brought the current circumstances upon himself, seemingly giving President Putin a “green light” during a press conference this week.
“Whatever happened in Afghanistan had a ripple effect with Ukraine. Whatever is going to happen with Ukraine is going to have a ripple effect with China, but it will have a ripple effect with Iran. It's going to have a ripple effect with North Korea because all of these countries will think they'll seize the moment. They'll think this is my time. America's weak, it's disorganized,” McFarland said.
This is incredibly concerning and would be totally unnecessary with a leader who projects strength. Joe Biden may just have brought us to the brink of war because of his careless language, and now he may ratchet it up still more with further careless action.
