As they used to say in The Bronx, “bullshit has its own sound.” 

Imagine? Joseph Biden, the U.S. President who withdrew U.S. troops from the 20 year murderous Afghanistan War last year—leaving behind billions of dollars of U.S. armaments and erroneously claiming the Taliban would not take over the nation or its capital, Kabul—is now fat-mouthing that the U.S. will defend NATO nations.

Hours before Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, U.S. President Joe Biden announced plans to shift U.S. forces already in Europe to Baltic states to “strengthen” them in the face of what he called Russian aggression. Besides the troops, the U.S. will send up to eight F-35s and 20 Apache helicopters, according to the Military Times. 

“Our commitment to Article 5 is ironclad,” Biden said. “I have ordered the deployment of additional forces to augment our capabilities in Europe to support our NATO allies. We were joined today by our close partners Sweden, Finland, and the European Union. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has failed in his goal of dividing the West.”

The additional U.S. troops will be sent to Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Reuters reported early Friday that about 20 Apache helicopters arrived in Latvia’s Lielvarde airfield.

“Our forces are not and will not be engaged in a conflict with Russia in Ukraine,” Biden said Thursday at the White House. “Our forces are not going to Europe to fight in Ukraine, but to defend our NATO allies and reassure those allies in the East.”

Filippo Grandi, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, said Friday that more than 50,000 Ukrainians have fled from the country as Russian troops tried to advance towards Kyiv. As many as 100,000 have been displaced.

Four countries—including Poland—called for NATO countries to invoke Article 4 of the North Atlantic Treaty.

    Don’t worry. Biden has it all under control. That’s why Joe uses Ultra Depends. For those frequent unexpected accidents. If your like Joe and always losing control, look for Depends Ultra at your favorite Grocery store with the Presidential Seal.

    What happened to the passionate antiwar and disarmament protests in Europe back in the days of the Soviet Union? Why are the “hippies” of yesterday the warmongers of today?

    The only consistent thread I see is communism.

    It wasn’t peace the protesters wanted; it was communism. So, any war with the U.S.S.R. was unacceptable to them.

    But communism in the Soviet Union ended in 1991. Russia underwent a Christian revival. It became conservative and traditional (it always was, but that had been suppressed). Now it is the enemy.

    The U.S. has gone in the opposite direction. It was conservative, Christian and traditional. Now it has embraced Cultural Marxism and class warfare — with nonwhites, feminists and sexual minorities serving as the new “proletariat” or “revolutionary subject.”

    What else has changed? Nobody under age 50 in the West has any conception of what a nuclear war would mean: mutual assured destruction. And many older people appear to have forgotten as well.

    It should be required viewing of all high school students to watch the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the aftermath so maybe people can realize the foolishness of wanting to fight with Ukraine.
