Let’s face it: The United States is in no position to fight a war.
Between the vaccine mandates, softening of standards for “inclusivity” purposes, and the general left-wing indoctrination circling every branch of military, it’s probably best for the cognitively deficient commander in chief to hold off on starting another European military conflict.
However, Biden has decided to deploy thousands of troops to and within Europe anyway as Russia-Ukraine tensions escalate.

On Tuesday, the Pentagon announced Biden’s decision as the United States continues to attempt to thwart off a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine as the former has amassed a military buildup of more than 100,000 troops around the Ukrainian border in both the latter and in Belarus.
Roughly 2,000 troops from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, will deploy to Poland and Germany, while another 1,000 or so will re-position from Germany to Romania, joining the roughly 900 U.S. service members who are already there. Among the first group, roughly 1,700 of those service members are from the 82nd Airborne Division, while the rest is from the 18th Airborne Corps.
The deployment represents the U.S.’s first major troop movement since the standoff began, though Pentagon spokesman John Kirby noted that the U.S., at this time, will not be sending troops into Ukraine specifically.
Biden’s decision comes a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his first public remarks on the situation, accused Western officials of having “ignored” his core demands for how to avert a military crisis in Europe.
“The fundamental Russian concerns were ignored,” Putin said Tuesday, following a meeting with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg applauded the move on Tuesday afternoon.
Go Figure: globalist world governments will always celebrate potential military conflict as it increases their revenue and justifies their bloated budgets.
The deployment comes roughly a week after the president placed 8,500 U.S. troops on “heightened alert” for a possible deployment to Eastern Europe, though these are not the troops who will deploy immediately because they are specifically meant for a NATO response force, if it gets activated.
“Those 8,500 are not currently being deployed but remain ready to move if called for the NATO response force or as needed for other contingencies as directed by the secretary or President Biden,” Pentagon spokesman revealed.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken ordered “eligible family members” of U.S. diplomats in Ukraine to leave last month, and the State Department is allowing “non-emergency U.S. government employees” to depart if they so choose. The State Department gave the same order for those in Belarus over the weekend.
While the troops deployed on Tuesday will not go into Ukraine, there are roughly 165 Florida National Guard members deployed in Ukraine executing a train-and-advise mission to develop the Ukrainian Armed Forces’s Combat Training Center, Yavoriv, and they have been there since 2015.
Biden is already responsible for the unnecessary deaths of at least 13 troops since assuming office. Does he really want another war on his hands?
