Biden’s Bombshell Back Story – OpEd – Eurasia Review
By suggesting that a “minor incursion” into Ukraine would be acceptable, notes Drew Allen, it seems that Joe Biden is in collusion with Vladimir Putin. Biden also has a collusion record on the issue of nuclear weaponsa history that dates back to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
After World War II, Josef Stalin’s Soviet Union occupied about half of Europe and established oppressive communist regimes. In 1953, after Stalin’s death, the Soviets crushed a workers’ revolt in East Germany and invaded Hungary in 1956 and Czechoslovakia in 1968. Under the Brezhnev Doctrinecaptive nations were not allowed to escape Soviet rule.
The Soviets deployed massive conventional forces in Europe and maintained a huge nuclear arsenal. The prospect of mutually assured destruction (MAD) ruled out the prospect of a first strike on either side. That changed under President Ronald Reagan.
He proposed a Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), a high-tech system that could intercept incoming Soviet missiles. Democrats called SDI “Star Wars” and Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) in collusion with Soviet boss Yuri Andropov in an unsuccessful attempt to defeat Reagan. In 1991, the USSR collapsed, and it troubled the composite character David Garrow portrayed in Rising star: the creation of Barack Obama.
As Paul Kengor notes in The communistFrank Marshall Davis, Obama’s beloved, the African-American “Frank” of Dreams of my father– spent most of his life defending the all-white dictatorship of the Soviet Union. Thus, the composite character tended not to criticize communist regimes. In 2008, he was elected promising to fundamentally transform The United States of America.
In 2009, his first year in office, Obama canceled a missile defense deal for US allies Poland and the Czech Republic. This was a direct benefit to Russia, still hostile to the United States, and with its massive nuclear arsenal still in place. For Russia, US missile defense was a big deal.
In 2012, President Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that “missile defense” could “be resolvedbut it’s important to him [Putin] to give me space. After his election, the US president said: “I will have more flexibility.” Medvedev replied: “I understand. I will pass this information on to Vladimir.
So Obama and Vladimir Putin had a hell of a collaboration. In a similar style, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s famous “reset” gave Russia the most intrusive nuclear weapons inspection program the United States has ever agreed to.
“We want to make sure that every question that the Russian army or the Russian government request is answered,” Clinton said after meeting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in 2015. Clinton told Lavrov that missile defense was “another area of deep cooperation between our countries.” Vice President Joe Biden was of the same opinion, from the start.
The Democratic presidential candidate in 1972 was George McGovern, whose position on “arms control” was essentially the same as that of the Soviets. America was to blame for the Cold War, McGovern believed, so the Soviets had to arm and America had to limit. The American people didn’t think so. McGovern suffered what the New York Times called, “the worst defeat of any Democratic presidential candidate in history. On the other hand, Joe Biden won his election to the Senate, where he represented the policies of McGovern.
In 1972, Biden maligned “Endless war, reliance on the false bonds of world power, overt and covert manipulation of foreign regimes, sentinel of the status quo are not our true styles.” Nothing about the aggression of the USSR, then marching around the globe, and still in command of Eastern Europe.
During the 1980s, Senator Biden supported the nuclear freeze motion, a Soviet-backed move that would have locked in communist military advantages. Biden also opposed Reagan’s defense buildup and the Strategic Defense Initiative, which, when implemented, helped put the USSR back on its heels. For the Democrat from Delaware, living under the threat of a Soviet first strike was completely acceptable.
In 2010, Vice President Biden said, “The spread of nuclear weapons is the greatest threat to the country and, I would argue, to humanity. Nothing about the spread of tyranny under Stalinist dictatorships, or the threat of Islamic terrorism, which had already slaughtered thousands in the American homeland.
“Let me say as clearly and emphatically as I can,” Biden said in 2014, “America doesn’t and won’t recognize Russian occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea. The annexation attempt was successful and Biden duly accepted it. At the same time, he opposes US efforts to strengthen defenses against Russia.
“Given our non-nuclear capabilities and the nature of current threats,” Biden said in 2017, “it is difficult to envision a plausible scenario in which the first use of nuclear weapons by the United States would be required. Or make sense. It didn’t apply to Russia.
In 2018, Putin boasted of a new nuclear weapon which “can attack any target, across the North or South Pole, it’s a powerful weapon and no missile defense system will be able to resist”. Putin also announced a cruise missile system that can “avoid all interceptors”. Joe Biden has been mostly silent on Putin’s new weapons, but he has perceived a greater threat from President Trump.
“The possibility that the Trump administration could resume explosive nuclear weapons testing in Nevada is as reckless as it is dangerous,” Biden said in May 2020. “We haven’t tested a device since 1992; we don’t need to do it now.
In August of the same year, Biden declared, “I will restore American leadership in arms control and nonproliferation as the central pillar of American global leadership.” This no doubt caught the attention of Putin, who began massing troops on the Ukrainian border in April 2021.
January 26Air Force Review published an article titled “55 Democrats urge Biden to adopt ‘no first use’ nuclear policy.” Democrats include Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and House Armed Services Committee members Andrew Kim (DN.J.), Sara Jacobs (D- Calif.), Ro Khanna (D-California) and John Garamendi (D-California).
Beyond the no-first-use policy, these 55 Democrats want to stop the deployment of the W76-2 Low Yield Trident Submarine Warhead, and the development of a new sea-launched nuclear cruise missile. The 55 Democrats, led by Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), also question the need for new nuclear weapon systems. In McGovern style, the blame lies with the United States, not Russia.
“Putin’s order puts Russia’s nuclear deterrent on high alert,” the washington time announced on Sunday. Vladimir Putin is a great admirer of Stalin and also a KGB veteran. As Ukrainian-born comedian Yakov Smirnoff says, the KGB will throw a man off a roof to punch the guy he really wants. True to form, Putin is invading Ukraine but what he really wants is for the United States to reduce its missile defense capabilities.
Stuntman for Obama, the confused Joe Biden also represents the second coming of George McGovern. That means it’s spring for Putin, as Mel Brooks would say, winter for Ukraine and the United States. This means that bombs are again falling from the sky, possibly in remote parts of Ukraine. If a Russian nuclear bomb managed to “solve” the American missile defense and land in the United States, a famous poster of the 1960s offers Americans a plan of action:
1) Stay clear of all windows.
2) Keep hands free from glass, bottles, cigarettes, etc.
3) Stay away from bar, tables, band, equipment and furniture.
4) Loosen the tie, unbutton the coat and any other constricting clothing.
5) Remove glasses, empty pockets of all sharp objects such as pens, pencils, etc.
6) Immediately after seeing the bright flash of the nuclear explosion, bend over and place your head firmly between your legs.
7) Then kiss your ass goodbye.
