The pains of war are real - ask the 2.1 million Ukrainians who have fled their homeland and the over 2-million displaced across the country due to Putin's conflict in Ukraine. As our Christian brothers and sisters endure death and despair, Americans here at home fear their financial security as gasoline and grocery prices continue to soar out of control. The new problem? Joe Biden and the asinine clowns of his administration do not know how to handle the ex-KGB madman of Vladimir Putin and his inner circle.
What is quite clear is that Putin does not care about Americans and cares even less about both the Ukrainian people and those who die below the flag of his own country. The increased body count is irrelevant, and in fact, Putin is for every soul perishing as long as his dream of Russian reunification is complete.
Because of Biden's ignorance, our country is less secure than it was just three weeks, three months, or a year ago. There isn't one global leader that believes what he says or the muscle his administration flexes across the world's stage.
Putin's plan is more than just Russian reunification; it is to embarrass the United States, and like the Germans and Japanese two generations ago, aim to bring our nation into another World War. The United States is not prepared for a showdown with Russia this time. It is even less minded for a joint engagement against the Chinese, which will undoubtedly, align with Putin's U.S. military involvement.
In the late 1930s, due to Hitler's aggression in Europe, Winston Churchill daily begged then-president Franklin Roosevelt to get involved and join the allies against the axis powers in World War II. It would take two years after the German invasion of Poland and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor before American boys and men suited up and headed to the beaches of France, Italy, and the islands of the Pacific.
Even Roosevelt knew that our nation was not prepared without direct provocation and lacked the will to fight in yet another global conflict. Ladies and gentlemen, while I cannot stomach the mass atrocities occurring every hour across Ukraine, I, like so many others across this nation, do not wish for a war with Russia. But, I am here to tell you our President and those within his liberal circle are preparing for just that - and the price of such a decision will be too much for many of us to bear.
For over twenty years, the United States has expanded NATO alliances across Europe and intentionally put the military squeeze on Russia. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the United States has fought a proxy military installation war against Russia in countries like Poland, Romania, and Estonia - setting up missile deployment and defense systems, which in the eyes of Putin, threatened the sanctity of his people and his power.
In October 1962, the Soviet Union did just that, placing nuclear missiles 90-miles off the coast of Florida, citing they were merely a defense to American aggression. In a T.V. address on October 22, 1962, President John F. Kennedy notified Americans about the presence of the missiles, explained his decision to enact a naval blockade around Cuba, and made it clear the U.S. was prepared to use military force if necessary to neutralize this perceived threat to national security. Many people feared the world was on the brink of nuclear war following this news. However, disaster was avoided when the U.S. agreed to Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev's offer to remove the Cuban missiles in exchange for the U.S. promising not to invade Cuba. Kennedy also secretly agreed to remove U.S. missiles from Turkey.
Flash forward 70-years, and we are now perceived as hostile aggressors worldwide. The United States has deliberately armed allied nations such as Ukraine, Romania, and Poland and dared the Russians to sit back and take it. I don't blame Putin for his hesitancies' however, in no way does that mean I support his one-way mission to kill the innocent and takeover another sovereign nation. But I do ask, what would today's American response be if Russian nuclear missiles resurfaced in Cuba, or perhaps Venezuela? Would Biden and the new war hawks in Washington consider war against Russia for such a move?
The past week, Ukrainian President Zelenskyy has begged for American planes and missiles to defend their country. But you see, ladies and gentlemen, Vladimir Putin does not care about the pilot's nationality. Still, if he or his generals see an American flag on the side of an F-15 as bombs are dropped on his soldiers, he will counter in like fashion.
The significant difference in this showdown from 1962 is the sheer number of nuclear weapons in the hands of Russia, which is around 4,500 when compared to 1962, the Soviets only had about 20 ICBMs capable of reaching the U.S. mainland. Since 2018, American military contractors have stagged hypothetical war games involving a US-NATO war with Russia, and the death toll surpassed 1-billion.
Joe Biden has killed our nation's domestic solvency and financial security, and now, he and his inner circle look to destroy our country on a world stage. Ladies and gentlemen, the pain at the pump and the grocery store is just the beginning. Since our nation's founding, Presidents and their administrations have looked to war to cover up and attempt to pull their nation out of financial ruin. As Biden-led inflation consumes us all here in America, do not play into his policies to lead our nation into another global war.
The United States is a stronghold of peace - we have but two allegiances to God and provide our people's safety and security.
The time is now - what will our response be - but more importantly, who do you trust at the helm?
