The Russian invasion of Ukraine is likely to lead to a Russian attack on NATO ally Poland, increased by the mass of Ukranian refugees going there, more than any other NATO nation.
Additionally, Poland has proposed sending its fighter jets to Ukraine, with the US replacing those jets for Poland, although, at this point, the US has spoken out against such an action, or creating a “No Fly” zone.
To this author and blogger, it seems inevitable that what President Biden and the leaders of the NATO nations fear and hope to avoid, a general continental war in Europe, what is being called World War III, is likely to occur.
Russia has committed war crimes and atrocities, which shake the emotions of all decent people, and at the same time, Russian military forces have been bogged down on the way to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, and other locations as well.
The Ukranians have shown their commitment to democracy, and have displayed their courage, and Vladimir Putin is in trouble, as his own population is slowly learning, despite censorship, of the military disaster that is occurring, with Russia losing more troops in two weeks than the US lost in the many years of the Iraq War.
It seems to this author and blogger that the “die is cast”, and soon America will be engaged in World War III, not by choice, but by necessity, as in World War I in 1917 and World War II in 1941!
Russia is starting to attack in western Ukraine now.
One of our local news stations, which is owned by Sinclair, had some new polling this morning. On inflation and the economy, Biden’s disapproval numbers are still very high, in the 70s. On handling Russia, his numbers are split, 48% approve, 51% disapprove.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Putin decided to start this war as a way to try to get Trump reelected in 2024.
Sounds like Russia’s military sucks.
