President Joe Biden’s domestic strategy is failing, so he tries to distract Americans with another inevitable deadly conflict abroad.
Less than a year after sacrificing at least 13 American lives and tying up thousands more to score political points by randomly withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan, Biden is seriously considering sending more American servicemen to die on the ground. foreigner.
On Monday, the President reported that after deliberations at Camp David this weekendit could send between 1,000 and 5,000 US reinforcement troops to NATO allies in Eastern Europe and the Baltics to potentially deter Russia from invading Ukraine.
The Biden administration hasn’t directly said it will force US troops to fight in Ukraine itself, but the US has already stepped up arms shipments to Ukraine, the same county where the president’s outrageous son , Hunter Biden, built his fortune. The State Department has also already ordered members of the US Embassy in Kyiv to leave Ukraine, signaling that the Biden administration considers threats from Russia imminent.
Instead of tackling runaway inflation, bare grocery store shelves, the ongoing pandemic, rising urban crime and America’s own border issues that regularly plague American families, Biden, still unpopular, uses the conflict between Russia and Ukraine to pretend that his administration is doing something else. than creating crises.
A myriad of new polls released this week show that a majority, 56%, of Americans disapprove of the president’s job. So unfortunate, in fact, that only 26% of Americans to believe things are going well in the country.
Biden’s efforts to gracefully push through his Build Back Bankrupt plan and neutralize the filibuster haven’t won the hearts and minds of voters the way he wanted, so Biden is shifting his efforts overseas. It’s a “wag the dog” strategy that other world leaders have tried and ultimately failed to successfully execute.
As early as the 1800s, those in power used their authority to spark conflicts with foreign powers in order to manipulate public opinion. French Emperor Louis Napoleon was suspected of pimping to French Catholics and trying to shore up his country’s crumbling reputation when it entered the Crimean War in 1854. Napoleon, experts say, wanted the power of Lord France over Russian Orthodox Christians to divert the attention of the French from domestic problems.
A more recent example of this distraction came in 1998 when President Bill Clinton suddenly decided, just days after confessing to having sex with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, to bomb potential terrorists in Afghanistan and Sudan.
Some leftists in corporate media even tried to accuse Trump of possibly planning foreign distractions to ease the pressure at home.
As his own border suffers, hurting his popularity and that of his vice president, Biden wants to ship Americans into a frozen wasteland thousands of miles away to eventually engage Russia and defend a country that is near and dear. to his heart and the wallets of his family. . The homeland is hurting so Biden wants a distraction to keep his reputation from falling further than it already has.
