Déjà vu can sometimes give you a sickening feeling, and this is the case here.
After the debacle in Afghanistan, we would have thought the State Department would have learned its lesson.
That, however, is not the case, and if anything breaks out in Ukraine, it will be Afghanistan all over again.
After seeing the complete and utter debacle that happened in Afghanistan, at the very least, it should have been a teaching moment for our State Department.
Look at the different countries around the world where hostilities could break out, start getting an accounting of all Americans in the country just in case they have to be evacuated.
Considering the mounting tensions between Russia and Ukraine that have been in place for months, Ukraine clearly would have been on that list.
Instead, when spokesman Ned Price was asked about the status of Americans in Ukraine, this was his answer…
When asked about a possible US response to aggressions in the area, Price offered up the same nonsense that Biden and Psaki have been saying.
Price responded, ‘In the event of Russian aggression against Ukraine, there will be a response.
“It will be swift, it will be severe, in the event of an incursion, it will be unprecedented in the terms of the steps we will be prepared to take.”
What are we talking about? Sanctions… military action… a combination of both?
I am still of the mindset that if Biden’s only plan is to put sanctions in place, it could be far worse for us than it will be for Russia.
I say this because we are energy and supply chain dependent on Russian allies, so Russia can hurt us just as much, if not more, by making a few phone calls.
How do you want to see the United States respond if Russia invades Ukraine?
Are you surprised this administration has no plan in place to evacuate American citizens in Ukraine?
