Biden v. Putin: The Ukraine Cage Fight


Tag-team tyrants Russia and China know that Biden is a pushover — brace yourself America.

“There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace … it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.” —George Washington (1793)

Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin chatted for two hours on a video confab Tuesday regarding U.S. concerns over the impending Russian invasion of Ukraine. I have been assured that Biden stayed awake for most it, but those Situation Room chairs are very comfy. It is no small irony that the call took place on the anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor — though I am certain that irony is lost on the Biden puppeteers who listened in: Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

As you recall, three weeks ago when Biden made a similar call to ChiCom tyrant Xi Jinping, Xi unwaveringly asserted his authority and power and signaled his disregard for Biden, as made clear by China’s rapid military advances in recent months and its overt aggression toward Taiwan.

I suspect the call with Putin was characterized by equal defiance, given that every Biden word was fully anticipated and factored in by the Russians well in advance.

Understand that China and Russia are tag-teaming, testing Biden’s lack of resolve to confront authoritarian tyrants, as aptly demonstrated by his surrender and retreat from Afghanistan. That test case demonstrated that Biden was not willing to take on the Taliban, a far less threatening adversary than Russia or China. If Russia moves on Ukraine, China is likely to quickly move on Taiwan, creating massive national security threats on two fronts.

I am not a gambler and thus will not wager on the probability of who will move first or if either will, but there is no question Xi and Putin know Biden is a feckless appeaser. This may be another round of Putin’s saber rattling to win various concessions, but the risks of it being more than that are much higher now than in 2014 when Putin seized Crimea.

As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) summarizes the “feckless appeaser” threat: “The weakness Biden has demonstrated, whether against Russia, whether against the Taliban, whether against the Chinese communists, that weakness is dangerous.”
