Harris confronted after US refuses to help send fighter jets to Ukraine

Ms. Harris went to Poland, apparently, to validate U.S. impotence, incompetence or outright malice with respect to “Putin’s war.”

I am glad the administration took the trouble to express solidarity with Poland. I am glad, too, for the announcement of $13 billion in U.S. aid to support both security and humanitarian objectives in the region. But I am not glad about the administration’s declaration to defend “every inch” of NATO.

I would have preferred a simple demand that Putin stop the war; something comparable to, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

Absent clarity or leadership of that caliber I’m left with the impression that our president actively seeks a long war of insurgency against Russia, a CIA-led proxy war that exploits and makes pawns of the Ukrainian people.

Such a thing I would not condone.

          1. Relevance? Not to mention it is highly unlikely Mr. Murphy beats his wife. If you have evidence of such behavior, you should contact local law enforcement.

            Maybe my definition of “you people” will help.

            “You people” are the ones that continue to spread the lies of Putin, under the guise of being a useful discussion, and refuse to acknowledge his behavior is abhorrent and probably illegal. “You people” are ones like Madison Cawthorn, who can’t even drive because his license was suspended, calling the leader of the VICTIMIZED country a “thug”. “You people” are ones that appear to have more trust in Putin and his misinformation campaign than in our own government.

            I will, thenks. The point of course is that I invited Mr. Murphy to ask questions about my post. He chose to ask a loaded question of the “Have you stopped beating your wife?” variety. In other words, he chose not to take my invitation seriously, but to attack me personally and in violation of the rules of this forum.

            I don’t think your definition of “you people” is helpful in any way. It betrays a tribalism that you, yourself, have argued against in the past.

            Had you and Mr. Murphy approached my commentary differently, I could have responded to your concerns in a way you might have found acceptable. Regretably, both of you chose to be confrontational, and there appears to be no value in saying more about it.

            Just call ’em as I see ’em. Sorry if you are so blinded by your won semantics and hypocrisy that you can’t see yourself in my definition. Any one with open eyes and an open mind would tend to agree with my assessment.

          4. “I’ll wait until you you stop beating your wife.”

            There is no evidence to support that response. There is pleny of evidence to support my question. You provide more of it every day.

        1. I can only guess you are looking in the mirror when asking that question. Otherwise it is as blatantly ignorant as your logic and your posts. Oh wait, that was one of your posts, that explains it.

  1. Well Biden sure likes the fuel costs to support his immature EV intiative. He’s doing everything he can to punish the American people into permanent staycation since commercial supercharging stations just aren’t there and cost alot more than gas anyway. Unless you don’t mind spending the night every 250 miles, EV just ain’t there and tourism by car becomes dead.

    So you are not glad that the leader of this country has declared that we will honor our treaty responsibilities. Contrary to the rhetoric, Biden is showing true strength while his predecessor declined to be supportive of NATO and capitulated to his boss, Putin, at every turn.

      Do you know why they sent Caclking Kam to say it? It was because Stumble Joe had just embarrassed our treaty partner, Poland by doing a bait-and-switch on supplying Migs to Ukraine. We broadcast our weakness and indecisiveness.

      1. The existential conflict between liberty and democracy versus fascism and slavery has come to a head with this fascist invasion of Ukraine. You take the side of fascism by spreading Putin’s lies and with your childish name-calling directed against our leaders as they try to defend democracy without triggering Armageddon.

        What is particularly laughable about you people is the way you style yourselves as “patriots.”

      2. How is it taking “the side of fascism” for wanting our leaders to be as strong as Ronald Reagan when he said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”?

          You spread and repeat Russian propaganda. You childishly slime our President at every opportunity. You take the position that defending Ukraine’s sovereignty is “moral preening.”

          President Biden has stated our position every bit as strongly as any President. You just don’t want to hear it.

      3. Your take and name calling is so far off-base it hardly deserves an answer.

        There was no bait-and-switch. Biden never said that we would be the supplier of MIG’s as an intermediary. Poland could have easily transferred the MIG’s to Ukraine themselves without a go between. If they had, we offered to backfill their offered planes. If anyone offered a bait and switch, it was Poland, who decided that any transfer of planes would have to go through US air bases in Germany. And for the same reason we are not directly involved in a no-fly zone over Ukraine.

        There is no weakness or indecisiveness on display. You see it that way because you want to. If you want to see REAL weakness and indecisiveness on display, watch the old videos from Helsinki when Trump capitulated to Putin and Putin just had a shit eating grin on his face while it as done.

        No, he didn’t. He allowed his Secretary of State to say it, then contradicted him in public — classic behavior of a weak leader. Poland’s response was to push the issue back on NATO for a decision, a brilliant, but revealing, move on the part of an actual leader who must try to operate under a duplicitous superior.

          As far as contradictions, the entire TFG term was 4 years of it.

          SECSTATE said that it was being discussed. You know how TRUE leaders will confer with those around them to offer advice, be it contradictory or not. And unlike your DEAR LEADER, contradictory responses are not grounds for firing.

          Re-read Team of Rivals for a reminder.

            No, he said it was “green lighted.”
