The WAR of WORDS between the US and Russia - Biden Era

Daily Mail: Reports " Biden tells Putin to back down over Ukraine: US President personally phones Russian leader to 'de-escalate tensions' after Moscow told America to keep warships away 'for their own good' "

Lets Get Real:

Putin is acting like a canny out of control Russian Bear, his poll numbers at home have taken a hit, well it would with reports that he has built a billion dollar house, thus the Kremlin wants to divert attention to the evergreen conflict between the US and Russia.  Putin wants to see what Biden is made off, will he follow through with security guarantees for the Ukraine, and should Russia act, will NATO come to the defence of East Ukraine and the whole of the Ukraine.  The way that Biden wants to get out of Afghanistan shows that Biden has no backbone, and Russia is a bigger problem than the Taliban in the long term.   While Biden is showing weakness over Afghanistan and the Ukraine, the North Korean and Iran Government will be closely watching, is Biden the new Jimmy Carter. 

Biden and Putin TALK - Biden Era

The White House: Has a readout of a telephone call between Presidents Biden and Putin, " President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. spoke today with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. They discussed a number of regional and global issues, including the intent of the United States and Russia to pursue a strategic stability dialogue on a range of arms control and emerging security issues, building on the extension of the New START Treaty. President Biden also made clear that the United States will act firmly in defense of its national interests in response to Russia’s actions, such as cyber intrusions and election interference. President Biden emphasized the United States’ unwavering commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The President voiced our concerns over the sudden Russian military build-up in occupied Crimea and on Ukraine’s borders, and called on Russia to de-escalate tensions. President Biden reaffirmed his goal of building a stable and predictable relationship with Russia consistent with U.S. interests, and proposed a summit meeting in a third country in the coming months to discuss the full range of issues facing the United States and Russia.  "

Lets Get Real:

President Putin must be laughing his backside off, Biden comes across as WEAK, showing concern and do something about it is something else, if Biden was stronger, he would place NATO troops in the West of Ukraine and say in a clear manner, that this is the line that Putin can no cross, the Kremlin seeing Biden as weak in Afghanistan and Iran will think they can push Biden about, and who is to say they are wrong.  The Putin brand has gone down in the polls in RUSSIA, what would serve Putin better would be a a man to man moment with Biden, he could invade the East Ukraine and force Biden to react, at present Biden is showing major weakness, the modern Neville Chamberlain of his day.  Weakness leads to WAR. 

Afghanistan Update Part 2 - Biden Era


Lets Get Real:

The question is what happens NEXT, there is an assessment that it will take the Taliban a few years to defeat the Kabul Government, then what happens, what if they invite back Al - Qaeda or Daesh and what if they do terror attacks on the US.   The blame will fall on Biden, the American people do not like WEAK Presidents, that was shown by the one term Presidency of Trump, winning is also not safe, in the first Gulf War, Bush 41 had a Gallup approval of 90% then lost to Bill Clinton.   The rogue nations out there, North Korea and Iran, will see that Biden will buckle and thus they can out last time and even force the pace, do these Countries really think that Biden will use military power, what about Russia and East Ukraine.  As stated, Biden is as WEAK AS DISHWATER, the 2021 Mid terms could be a disaster for Democrats. 

Afghanistan, the Longest War Update - Biden Era


Lets Get Real:

President Biden as VP under President Obama never supported the Afghan War and used anything negative to undermine the President and his plans.  This move by Biden shows that he is WEAK AS DISHWATER, the Taliban will simply wait for the US to remove it forces and then go in for the kill and try to retake Kabul.   It is reported that Biden will leave troops in Afghanistan to protect the Embassy,* let's hope that is correct and the US Air Force should be used to take down the Taliban if they try to attack US land forces in Afghanistan as they leave.   Let's be clear this blog has never supported sending troops to Afghanistan in the first place, its is the graveyard of Empires, the British Empire had wars in Afghanistan, while the USSR invaded in 1979, both sides found that Afghanistan and planning does not work.  But once the US and the UK were in we need to win, it seems we are throwing in our cards as we cant win in the long term.  As to miss quote LBJ, if Biden fails in Afghanistan then the Republicans should ram Afghanistan up the backside of Biden, its his WAR to LOSE. 

* The original text miss quoted the number of troops to be left behind in Afghanistan!

The Shadow War Part 3 - Iran and Israel - Biden Era


Lets Get Real:

The Biden White House will have to work out, when is the best time to deal with Iran, does it want a major crisis happen before the 2021 Mid Terms, when the Biden Oval will have to be seen to be tough, or does it want to deal with it now, before the election cycle starts.   President Biden has to get one thing in his mind, Israel will never allow Iran to get the bomb, if need be it will drop the bomb on IRAN and take out its nuclear structure, and it will not wait for a yes or no from the Biden Oval.  Thus Biden has to constrain Israel, but also make it clear to Iran, do not push it, or Israel will have the final say on events.  This reminds this blog of the Morocco crisis at the start of the 20th Century, in that case, France was Israel and Iran was Germany, and we all know how that relationship went, World War 1. 

Is the balloon about to go up on the Ukraine and Russian Border ? - Biden Era


Lets Get Real:

Thus FAR, the threat of a war between Russia and the Ukraine has not made it to the front of the news channels in the UK, its reached web pages, but only down the line.  What would be a MAJOR SHOCK if while the TV channels are obsessed with COVID - 19 and people drinking we see the prospects of World War 3 in Europe.  The Kremlin must KNOW that the West, in this case NATO will not allow Putin to take over Western Ukraine, it would be seen as to much of a threat to NATO and Western Europe and those former Countries in the former Warsaw Pact ( yes that Cold War ).  The Biden Administration must be it firm to Putin, one step of invasion and NATO will come to protect the Ukraine, fighting Western troops might put off Putin, in that WAR he would lose. 

The TRUTH about the Israeli Cyber Attack on Iran - Shadow War 2 - Biden Administration


Lets Get Real:

One does hope that the CLERICS in Iran do understand one thing about Israel, if Israel thinks that Iran has become a direct threat to its existence it will GO def con 1, that means that Israel could wipe Iran off the face of this earth, and there is nothing the Biden Administration can do about that, at the end of the day, any US Administration will come down in support of Israel, no matter what AOC and her squad, as the House Speaker stated, the AOC and her members, are about worth half a glass of water when it comes to REAL POLITICS.   Also the the Israeli Lobby on the Hill can flex its muscle in support of Israel, and let's recall that the Mid Terms are coming up next year. Politics never ends in the US.
