What is the U.S. National Security Interest in Ukraine?
“Of Woodrow Wilson’s successors, only the first three escaped the role of war president. While these leaders have committed America to the pursuit of peace, they have involved us in seemingly endless wars. The American foreign policy establishment’s several “schools” have jointly misguided our presidents with myths that have worsened these conflicts: that foreign peoples always share American ideals; that peace is simple the absence of conflict rather than the tenuous result of victories; that diplomacy is a substitute for force; and that wealth is everyone’s overriding goal. Our establishment’s very language obscures reality. The result is that even as American forces win battle after battle, we leave ourselves and the world less secure.” Angelo Codevilla
In Washington, D.C., House and Senate republicans and democrats are bolting headlong into war with Russia despite the fact America’s civil and military leaders have a 20 year track record of engaging in wars (1) without a deep understanding of the enemy situation, (2) with no strategic plan, and (3) without articulating the U.S. national interest for entering the war.
Today on television, Ohio Senator Robert Portman, the ranking republican on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, was openly vocal about his support for America giving money, planes, armaments and more to Ukraine, while also supporting a No Fly Zone.
What is the specific national security interest of the United States in Ukraine?
Since it was the democrat party, including Joe Biden and Barack Obama, which worked with the Ukrainian government for the last 8 years in a criminal conspiracy to undermine America’s national security, advance hostile counterintelligence operations in the United States, and conspire to Overthrow the U.S. government in violation of federal code and the Constitutional Oath, why are any republicans supporting military and financial support for the Ukrainian government – a corrupt government at the very least?
Today, the day of the memorial of Richard Higgins, the Director of Strategic Planning for the National Security Council, seems like a good time to inject his written thoughts into this issue:
“More afraid of being accused of being called a racist, sexist, homophobe or lslamophobe than of failing to enforce their oaths to “support and defend the Constitution,” the Republican Establishment accepts and enforces cultural Marxist memes within its own sphere of operations. In doing so, knowingly or not, it becomes an agent of that. These “conservatives” become increasingly indistinguishable from their democratic counterparts save that they misrepresent themselves to their constituents. Lacking the discernment to recognize their situation, they will work with globalists, corporatists, and the international financial interests and will likewise service the deep state. These establishment Republicans are the hard left’s designated defeat mechanism in the destruction of the old regime as well as the American ideal.” Richard Higgins, from Potus & Political Warfare, May 2017
Establishment republicans and the democrat leadership do not care about the American people nor do they adhere to their Oaths of Office. Some go along to get along. Most are enamored with themselves and crave the applause. Many see bigger stars on the horizon. Some are greedy and some are traitors.
If there is a U.S. national security interest in Ukraine which is worth plunging America into another war, someone in a position of leadership needs to explain it to the American people before we sacrifice thousands of American lives and add to America’s $30 trillion debt.
What about the communists and jihadis in places like San Francisco, Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, Kansas City, Houston, Minneapolis, Dearborn, Chicago, Columbus, Brooklyn, Seattle, Jacksonville, Phoenix, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Portland, San Diego, Dallas, Fairfax, Austin and many other cities across America?
Why don’t we focus on ridding America of these hostiles before we spill American blood and expend American treasure in Ukraine?
