Trump: Biden Risking 'World War III' With Russia

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday said the escalating Russia-Ukraine crisis is "a NATO problem" that President Joe Biden has turned into a potential "World War III."

Russia has moved some 100,000 troops near Ukraine's borders, a buildup that the West says is preparation for a war to prevent the Eastern European country from ever joining the NATO alliance. The Kremlin denies planning an invasion.


However, the Russian denials ring a bit hollow when compared to Russian foreign policy goals Russian leader Vladimir Putin has been talking about since at least 2007.


“Putin’s Kremlin has been preparing for conflict ever since he declared the new age of hostility in a 2007 speech in Munich,” said Bob Seely in The Telegraph, but his words have been “largely ignored by nervous Western nations”.


Seely contends that Putin aims to do three things as his time in power reaches its final decade: “First, destroy an independent Ukrainian state; second, shatter NATO and third, cement Russia’s role as an illiberal rival to the West.”


In the same vein, a Ukrainian government minister and former top intelligence officer, Yuliia Laputina, has warned that a full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russia could trigger “World War Three” as she said military action by Vladimir Putin would spill over into other former Soviet nations.


“If Russia will invade you know, you should also take care about the Balkans,” she told Sky News in an interview at her office in Kyiv. “What Russians are doing now in Serbia - they try to provoke a situation in the Balkans.


“But we also take into account [the beginning of] World War Three... We should pay attention to the Ukrainian issue because of the security of the continent.”


Our friends at NewsMax report that in response to the current situation in Ukraine, Trump, speaking to Lou Dobbs on "The Great America Show" podcast, slammed Biden for saying that any actions taken against Russia would depend on "if it's a minor incursion [into Ukraine] and we end up having to fight about what to do and what to not do, et cetera."


"What Biden said was psychologically very weak and very bad," Trump told Dobbs. "He said, Oh, they're going in. It was almost like an invitation to go in. We don't want to see that, but it was like an invitation."


"To start World War III, to start World War III," Trump told Dobbs. "It's just all so crazy. And it would have never happened under me. It would have never happened.


Trump blamed Russia's aggression — and China’s — on Biden's disastrous U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan late last summer.


"There’s a lot of dislike, and I think I lot of distrust on behalf of Russia toward us because of what happened over the past year," Trump told Dobbs. "They look at our country and they're laughing, they are laughing out loud.


"This is just a lack of respect for us."


Trump said the situation involving Ukraine is "a NATO problem, European problem."


The former President went on to launch an extended soliloquy on his record of getting NATO members to pay their proper share of the cost of the alliance’s military capability. "...we defended Europe because they weren't paying their bills. When I got in, I said, 'You're not paying your bills. You gotta pay your bills, you're delinquent.' And they said, 'Does that mean you wouldn't fight for us?' I said, 'If you’re delinquent, I wouldn't fight for you. No, you're right about that.’ The next day, billions of dollars came in," claimed Mr. Trump.


In one sense former President Trump is absolutely right – the security of Europe is a European problem – but as a tool for managing Europe’s security NATO has become a tool of limited utility.


And it is not, as Mr. Trump implied, because Biden has allowed NATO members to revert to their old ways of not paying their fair share for the benefits of the alliance.


Rather, it is because NATO members, particularly Germany, don’t share a strategic vision about how to deal with Russian aspirations and adventurism in what the Russians call their “near abroad.”


If the Germans and the United States were serious about confronting and defeating Putin’s aspiration to reestablish the old Soviet Empire in Europe, they most certainly would not have OK’d the Nordstream II natural gas pipeline and they would have bolstered Ukraine when Putin first began to carve-up the country back in 2014.


Instead, they did nothing of significance, and, as we pointed out in our article “Obama And Biden Already Gave Away Ukraine And Nothing Short Of War Will Get It Back” having had eight years to entrench himself in Donbas and Crimea nothing short of war is going to pry Putin out of the Ukrainian territory he now occupies. The time to repel Putin was 2014 when his incursion into Ukraine was fresh and international outrage was high, instead, Obama’s “point man” on Ukraine, Joe Biden, spent his time and influence assisting his son in looting the prostrate Ukrainians.


We urge conservatives to ignore the DC war party; the same Democrats who gave away Ukraine in 2014 and subsequently helped Hunter Biden loot the country are back in charge and we all know they are incapable of successfully facing down Putin and a reinvigorated Russia.

Biden welcomes war to divert the public's attention from his disasterous open border, sky-high inflation, piss poor pipeline & energy decisions, supply chain woes, unconstitutional vaccine mandates, and basically every leftist, rotten, weak, anti-American, abject failure move he has packed into one year.

Biden will fold like cheap suit, he fears a war he cannot be assured of winning and he has literally given away leverage to both the Chines and the Russians and is about to beg Iran to take more......The left has given us a unwelcome agenda and a damned old fool who is barely capable of making a full sentence without struggle and his inexperienced roomies are just as inept as he is....He won't be able to help Taiwan because he is as Musk says, a wet sock puppet of the Chinese Intel agency, again he has already given the go ahead to RazzPutin and the Ukraine President knows he is toast.....USA, I think WE have a very real Problem.......America…

The United States has no security interest in Ukraine. NATO doesn't want Ukraine to join. Russia doesn't want Ukraine to join NATO. Putin sees that as a security threat. Would the United States have been concerned if Mexico had joined to Warsaw Pact?


Nikita Khrushchev (who was Ukrainian) gave Donbas and Crimea Oblasts, which were part of Russia, to Ukraine in 1954, without getting permission from the Duma. Yeah, even the Premier of the Soviet Union was expected to follow Soviet law, but we've seen how that works out.


If all Putin wants is to reclaim those parts of present-day Ukraine, there ought to be a plebiscite overseen by Russia, NATO, and UN, for the people of those Oblasts to…

Biden knows he has really screwed up by removing the Nordic 2 sanctions and other sanctions against the Russkies that supercharged their income...This gain resulted in more Russian aggression and super weapons for them to bark with and brought Europe to it's knees by blackmailing Germany.....This is his latest wake up and I don't think he's opened his eyes yet but he feels like a fool and is losing tons of support for any and all his agenda...With little to no leverage, best to shovel war material into Ukraine and let them damage the unsupported Russkie incursion and the let the Russkie's face insurgency resistance......Time to get this anti American out of the Oval Office and gear up America to…

PatrioticPost.com)- Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson has called for President Joe Biden to undergo a cognitive test, citing his shocking performance during his Wednesday press conference marking his first year in office.Everybody is stupid except joe biden, and of course the smartest man he ever met, was hunter biden, the corrupt fantasies of joe biden's world of criminallly insane bull shit. The biden crime family should be forced to return all the money they have accepted from Russia and China. Pay to play is a crime against the the United States when they broke the oath trust of his sworn office.

Replying to

likely not to make you any happier Mr. Wilkins but i am a personal friend of a former business associate of hunter who was thrown to the wolves over one of the "deals" surrounding burnham and rosemont entities who provided the FBI and SEC with interviews lasting several days explaining the inner workings of the corp entities and their executives which included chris heinz, hunter, devon archer (john kerry's finance manager on failed presidential run) and whispers of paul pelosi. The federal district judge appointed by Obama as a reward to her dodgy father a constitutional attorney was and is unqualified for the position and had very substantial conflicts of interest in matter due to her husband's activities for robert…
