Last week, Leader Biden signed a massive $40 billion military aid expenses for Ukraine. Who cares that inflation is killing the American economy and mothers can’t even get baby formula. For Wa, spending on war and disposition always seems to trump Many interests.
To put this giveaway in order to Ukraine in perspective: just since late February, the US has provided nearly $60 billion in “ assistance” in order to Ukraine. That is almost fifty percent that country’s entire 2020 GDP! Washington has literally adopted Ukraine in our title and on our dime.
The Biden Management claims that Ukraine is winning the war with Russia and that such an expenses to protect Ukraine’s borders is critical to our national interests plus worth risking a nuclear war over.
But protecting Ukraine’s democracy is no longer the stated goal of the Administration. Protection Secretary Austin outlined the particular Administration’s new intention recently when he said that the actual goal is to weaken Russia.
Biden’s neocons are fighting a battle with Russia, but once more Congress has no interest in voting on a war declaration and even in debating whether war with Russia 30 years after the end of the Cold War is a good idea.
There is a reason our Cosmetic grants war powers towards the legislative branch. Forcing Members of the House and Senate in order to declare the US to be in a state of war also enables them – through the powers of the purse-string – in order to define the goals from the war and particularly such a victory looks like. That helps prevent the kind of mission-creep and moving objectives that have characterized the endless wars in the 21st century – including this current proxy server war with Russia.
Even the US mainstream media is beginning to notice. Last week the New York Times’ Editorial Board published an editorial originally titled, “ What is America’s Strategy within Ukraine? ” complaining the Biden Administration has yet to answer any queries to the American people concerning its involvement in Ukraine.
While, since could be expected, the papers attacked the “ isolationists” in the US Congress who opposed the $40 billion giveaway, the NY Times editorial board nevertheless registered so what can only be seen as the very first major sign of refuse among the usual media battle cheerleaders.
… it is still not in America’s best interest to plunge into an all-out war along with Russia, even if a negotiated peace may require Ukraine in making some hard decisions. As well as the US aims and technique in this war have become harder to discern, as the guidelines of the mission appear to possess changed.
While warning that Americans’ interest in Ukraine will begin to wane without more clarity through Washington as to its goals, the paper went on in order to directly contradict the Biden Administration’s predictions of a Ukraine victory:
A decisive military wining for Ukraine over Russian federation, in which Ukraine regains the whole set of territory Russia has grabbed since 2014, is not a realistic goal.
Congress – with virtually no exceptions – has cracked a financial spigot to the governing administration in Kiev without wanting information about a single question about how plus why the money is to be wasted. When Senator Paul purely asked for someone to keep track of this $60 billion we shipped over there he was met with near-unanimous opposition.
An endless supply of US taxpayer money to Ukraine using zero stated goals as well as zero oversight. Isn’t that time to stand up and call for that both parties in Our elected representatives start asking some very hard questions?
