Biden’s War Part 3

March 27, 2022

President Biden’s principal goal in a contest with Vladimir Putin should be to defend NATO countries and protect former Soviet “captive nations” from Russian domination. Ordinarily that would require a commitment to negotiations. Calling Putin a war criminal sets a different tone. And in President Biden’s speech in Warsaw yesterday, he portrayed this conflict as a “battle between democracy and autocracy. Between liberty and repression. Between a rules-based order and one governed by brute force.”

“Every generation has had to defeat democracy’s moral foes,” the President said.

“Let us resolve to put the strength of democracies into action to thwart the designs of autocracy.”

“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

“Them’s fightin’ words,” as they say in Appalachia. They are not words a President says to the leader of a country with nuclear missiles.
