Joe Biden keeps saying he will not commit our military to defend Ukraine.
Yet, he has confirmed that he will be sending troops to the region as tensions escalate between Russia and Ukraine.
This is Joe Biden talking about of both sides of his mouth.
The confusion here might be because the media caught Biden departing Air Force One rather than with a prepared script in his hands.
Biden informed the media that troops were getting sent to the region, but he could not confirm how many.
Biden has changed his story from the beginning of this conflict, now stating that there will not “be any American forces moving into Ukraine.”
That gets him off the hook for sending troops to the region.
My question, however, would be that if they are not heading there to defend Ukraine, then why are they even sending troops?
However, a Pentagon spokesperson did add a bit more clarity, seeming to know more than Joe Biden about the commander-in-chief’s troop deployment plan.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby stated, “I can say today that these units include elements of the 82nd Airborne Division based at Fort Bragg, which regularly, I think you all know, maintains high readiness, as well as elements of the 18th Airborne Corps, also based at Fort Bragg.”
While all of this is going on, Ukraine, which has been ringing the bell for months over a possible invasion, is now accusing the United States of creating panic over an invasion that is unlikely to happen.
The sudden change in messaging has not been missed by some pundits, wondering now if Ukraine officials have some sort of backroom deal worked out with Putin.
As I have stated before, this should all work itself out over the next week or so, hopefully for the better.
Do you think Russia will invade or do you think everyone is being played?
