I have read several Tweets and OpEds from people who are supposed to be political and policy experts, all of which are absolutely adamant that Russian incursions into Ukraine under Obama and Biden, but not under Trump, is proof positive that Obama and Biden were tougher on Russia and Trump was just Putin’s lap dog.
See, ackchyually, Putin didn’t invade Ukraine when Trump was President because Putin wanted to go easy on his puppet.
It doesn’t make sense but it’s not supposed to.
This is usually followed up with the accusation that anyone on the right who doesn’t want to go to war with Russia on behalf of Ukraine is a traitor and a Russian asset.
Put a carrier strike group in the Black Sea and watch Russian hypersonic anti-ship missiles sink it in a matter of minutes.
Watch as a squadron of MiG-35s bring down our F-16s and leave us without air superiority.
Watch as their T-95s and T-14s obliterate our armored divisions.
Sure, we will score some casualties too no doubt.
But we haven’t fought a peer-to-peer war since WWII.
Were not used to taking tens of thousands of casualties in a single battle.
To put it in perspective, we lost fewer than 7,000 troops in the 20 years of the GWOT.
There are approximately 5,000 sailors on a single aircraft carrier.
We could lose more personnel and equipment in one day against Russia than in two decades of Iraq, Afghanistan, and the rest of the Middle East combined.
Live, on CNN.
I have medical issues that exclude me from the draft.
Let America have the shock to the system of absorbing 10,000 casualties in a day.
Lay that at the feet of the Biden Administration and the experts.
Let them explain why we needed to do that for a country that has virtually no effect on ours, save to pay the President’s crack head son millions in fees.
I hope when the bodies come home the families of those who died take their revenge on the experts pushing us into war.
