What is the U.S. National Security Interest in Ukraine?

Why don’t we focus on ridding America of these hostiles before we spill American blood and expend American treasure in Ukraine?

What is the U.S. National Security Interest in Ukraine?

by John D. Guandolo


“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?

  1. To assess on sliver of the spectrum of minds within the Republican Party consider the term “Neo-Conservative.” Digging into the roots of that phrase is not especially encouraging; their political stance is a wild mix of what is available. They come from “The Anti-Stalinist Left”…but they are label themselves the “Good Left”, “Wise Left”, “Prudent Left”…and call that “Neo-Conservatism.”

    I don’t suppose it would take too much rationality to be “Anti-Stalin”…but I would think it should be a high mark to able to include the word “Conservative” in your politics.

  2. Like you said ” They don’t care about Americans ” If America does not wake up soon it will be too late if it isn’t already! If the corruption isn’t removed from this government soon we are a lost country. I am old and lived my entire life proud to be an American, follow the law, pay my taxes but if it comes to civil war I would rather die fighting not a slave! I am not alone i hope! Take back the country starting in November!

    • ALL who serve within our governments are contractually required to follow the US Constitution first and always. They take personal responsibility to do so when they take the constitutionally required Oath for ALL who serve within our governments. [no one, no office, nothing but by amending the US Constitution can take away the Oath requirement].

      Most Americans have never read the US Constitution or their own state’s Constitution and are ignorant of what those who SERVE within our governments are allowed to do, forbidden to do, can do only under specifically laid out circumstances. THAT is our problem because the American people are the “rulers” here, those serving within our governments agents acting in our name.

  3. John is a smart guy so it makes it very disappointing he would take this stance. Yes, Ukrainian my be corrupt, but so too is our current government. Biden and Burisma, lockdowns, stay at home orders, mask and vaccine mandates, supply shortages, rising inflation from government spending, fuel crisis caused by dependency on foreign oil from a blockage by our own government to produce our own, 10% for the big guy, a democrat party spying on a sitting US President, politicians who think they rule you rather than accepting rule by the people, and the list goes on and on. It’s a very long train of usurpations corrupt to the core!! So why support Ukraine? Because the people are as powerless as we are to fix their own government. Ukrainians deserve life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness despite a corrupt ruling class taking advantage of them. To buy into the arguments John lays out in this article would mean that conservatives should bury their head in the sand, to ignore the corruption of our own government because it isn’t worth spending time, money or blood to fix a corrupt system. Imagine if we were attacked, wouldn’t you want others to stand behind us in our own fight for our lands and homes, despite the fact that our government is corrupt to the core? We come to the aid of Ukraine because that’s what Americans do, we fight for the underdogs, to lift them out of corrupt rule. I wholeheartedly disagree with the sentiments of this article.

    • Yes, the USA, as citizens of the world, should find moral consanguinity with those fighting against invasions from their neighbors. There are some variables being left out of common discourse though:
      1) Ukraine is a long way from the North Atlantic…to have NATO progress further and further towards Russia might raise some eyebrows from Russians. At some point it would have been prudent for Ukraine to say unambiguously, “No, we will not seek to join NATO.”
      2) The corridor across Ukraine has filtered many invading armies who wrecked havoc on Russia, namely Napoleaon and Hitler. Not to be one-side, but that is also the route the Mongols took to raid Poland. Whoever controls that corridor controls a very valuable attack avenue. For Ukraine to join NATO would be very concerning to Russia.
      3) After the American Revolution, our famous Admiral John Paul Jones took a commission from Catherine the Great and served in the Black Sea Fleet sailing out of Sevastopol, Crimea. For Russia to claim Crimea is not like they are overreaching across the world (reference Cuba)…by annexing Crimea they were reclaiming a very valuable resource with which they have a historical connection. Is this a hard and bitter thing to say?…yes, it is, but it is realpolitik.

      And not least of all, since Russia is a nuclear armed nation ran by thugs, this situation is for all the marbles, where the apex of human advancement is being subjected to the liability of only local relationships occur for the next 50 years since everything else has been bombed to destruction.

      Does the USA and NATO really have a national security interest in Ukraine? Probably not. Emotionally and morally most people are outraged over Russia’s invasion. But at some point the adults have to deal with the world as the world is.

    • “So why support Ukraine?”

      If by “support” you mean send troops, then you are also incorrect. Those that SERVE within our governments have gone WAY beyond their written DELEGATED “powers”. Have you read the US Constitution, your own state’s Constitution? Those written documents are the ONLY lawful powers those who serve within our government may use.
