When we thought Afghanistan was the first and last, Biden is now on the move for his 2nd debacle and even promised prolonged human suffering.
Biden had an hour phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin last Saturday after the State Department have ordered all diplomatic personnel to flee Ukraine immediately after reports arise that there are about 130,000 Russian troops circulated the area.
According to the White House, the call was focused on, “Russia’s escalating military buildup on the borders of Ukraine.”
“President Biden was clear that, if Russia undertakes a further invasion of Ukraine, the United States together with our Allies and partners will respond decisively and impose swift and severe costs on Russia.”
“President Biden reiterated that a further Russian invasion of Ukraine would produce widespread human suffering and diminish Russia’s standing.
“President Biden was clear with President Putin that while the United States remains prepared to engage in diplomacy, in full coordination with our Allies and partners, we are equally prepared for other scenarios,”
This is a very critical situation especially after Biden’s decision-making habits that has destroyed Afghanistan.
A senior administration official termed the call “professional and substantive” but said there was “no fundamental change in the dynamic that has been unfolding now for several weeks, and the two presidents agreed that our teams will stay engaged in the days ahead,” the official said. “Russia may decide to proceed with military action anyway. Indeed, that is a distinct possibility.”
The official said the U.S. remains “committed to keeping the prospect of de-escalation through diplomacy alive.”
“But we’re also clear-eyed about the prospects of that, given the readily apparent steps Russia is taking on the ground in plain sight, right before our eyes. The stakes of this are too high not to give Russia every chance to avoid an action that we believe would be catastrophic. So as always, we continue along two paths.”
Biden also has offered Russia assurance of its security but still, Russia remains unclear in pursuing its goals diplomatically.”
“But you know, we are not basing our assessment of this on what the Russians say publicly, we are basing his assessment on what we are seeing on the ground … which is a continued Russian buildup on the border with Ukraine, and no meaningful evidence of de-escalation, or really of any interest in de-escalation.” the official added.
What should we expect in a few days? I am getting nervous, Biden is promising warfare that humans will suffer. Not again…
The Washington Post also confirmed that French President Emmanuel Macron also spoke with Putin for about 90 minutes on Saturday.
