Doubletalk from Biden – Now Acceptable for Ukraine to concede land to Russia
It should not be acceptable. To allow Russia to invade Ukraine, take territory, and exhibit naked aggression in the face of U.S. and NATO opposition is a major blow to the prestige and influence of the West. It is unthinkable to allow him to succeed.
Or is it?
The ineptness of the Biden Administration allowed this to happen. The sanctions levied have not crushed Russia as Biden promised (and then un-promised). The West is feeding guns and other armaments into Ukraine, without realizing it is too little too late, that the Ukrainian Army doesn’t have enough trained soldiers to execute a war.
The Biden Administration doesn’t seem to realize that Russia already won the war a couple of months ago, created three brand new countries, each of which has voted for its independence. Is Biden going to force them back into Ukraine? Putin has outplayed him there.
In short, the outcome of the war was decided long ago.
So now the Biden Administration is hinting that maybe it’s OK if Ukraine negotiates a settlement and gives up the land that Russia is going to keep no matter want (the parts that are declared independent but are really Russian clients states now).
In other words, Biden will accept surrender.
Biden floated this idea in early April, through leaks to the media We have already noted signs that Biden is tired of the war and wants to move on.
But now he is making much stronger signals.
“From the beginning, I’ve said and I’ve been — not everyone’s agreed with me — nothing about Ukraine without Ukraine,” Biden said. “It’s their territory. I’m not going to tell them what they should and shouldn’t do.
“But it appears to me that at some point along the line, there’s going to have to be a negotiated settlement here,” the president added. “And what that entails, I don’t know. I don’t think anybody knows at the time. But in the meantime, we’re gonna continue to put the Ukrainians in a position where they can defend themselves.”
If Biden is sending these “signals” you can bet the pressure on Zelenskyy is enormous.
