Is Biden Being Blackmailed to Send US Combat Troops to Ukraine? by Mike Whitney

As conspiracy theories go, this is one of the best out there, and like many conspiracy theories, may well end being true. From Mike Whitney at unz.com:

Billionaire elites are using their power over the media, the political class and public opinion to coerce Joe Biden into sending US troops to Ukraine to prevent a Russian victory. Idiot conservatives think the media is actually doing their job for once by accurately reporting Biden’s alleged transgressions. But, the fact is, the media is simply showing that it can switch sides at any time in order to pursue the elitist agenda.

No one should be surprised that Joe Biden’s ‘classified documents problem’ has emerged at the same time a key city in Ukraine (Soledar) has been liberated by Russian troops. All of the recent reports from the frontlines indicate that the Russian army is steadily seizing more territory in the eastern part of the country while inflicting heavy casualties on the over-matched Ukrainian forces. In short, the Ukrainian army is being beaten badly forcing US war planners to rethink their approach. What the US needs to do to prevail in its proxy-war with Russia, is to enlist a coalition of nations (US, Poland, Romania, and UK) that are willing to commit combat troops to the conflict with the tacit understanding that NATO will not directly participate in any ground war with Russia. Biden previously rejected the idea of sending troops to Ukraine acknowledging that it would be tantamount to launching a Third World War. But as the ‘classified documents’ scandal gains momentum, the malleable president will likely fall-in-line and do whatever the hawkish foreign policy establishment demands of him. In short, the documents flap is being used by behind-the-scenes powerbrokers who are blackmailing the president to pursue their own narrow interests. They have Brandon over-a-barrel.

  1. Is Soledar a key city? It looks to be mostly a town built around a salt mine. But big obvious questions are: What did 12 years of American involvement in Vietnam achieve, what did 20 years in Afghanistan achieve, other than expend an enormous amount of military materiel and kill/main lots of soldiers? Who was it good for?

    We’ll be in Moscow by March, just as soon as the artillery shells and missiles run out for Russia.
    That’s if they don’t retreat after hearing about all of the Wunderwaffen and mercs pouring into the cash Laundromat the Kraine.
    Youth in the former West are gung ho fighters just itching to go and die for oligarchs in Ukraine.
    Any day now, The Russian Federation runs out of armaments.
