I really did hear it the other day in his "presser", right?
That a "limited incursion" into Ukraine by the Russians would not lead to such-serious sanction?
Uh, exactly what is a limited incursion?
500 missiles targeting both men and material in Ukraine? You know, infrastructure, military sites, maybe a decapitation strike on the Capitol? That's not an "incursion" at all, you know; well... other than by missile of course.
I'm stunned to hear something like that out of a President. But not because of the language; rather the lack of decisiveness on what is and isn't any of our damned business.
Was not Ukraine formerly part of Russia?
Well, sort of. The western part of the nation sort of was and the entire thing was part of the Soviet Union. The communist parliament of the nation declared independence in 1991. Is that valid? If it is, and stands uncontested, then Texas could declare independence from the United States tomorrow by the very same mechanism as exactly the same sort of process brought both together in the first place.
Is this any of our business? Good question, and one that we should have a firm position on backed by the same exact firm position of every nation in Europe, which I remind you has a hell of a lot more at issue than we do when it comes to this matter.
Oh, that "backing" has to come with men, material and a commitment to act.
None of which is there and hasn't been for decades.
Maybe we ought to make up our minds before opening our mouths lest we set off something we then have to deal with.
Oh well -- too late now. That's what we both deserve and get when we have a doddering fool for a President, and we -- both the people and both Houses of Congress -- put him there. All 535 members of Congress have full joint and several responsibility if in fact they put in place a President who is mentally incompetent to discharge the office and as a result gets us nuked.
It just might.
