Biden’s Whoppers at UN on Ukraine Burger King Worthy

Outside of NATO and a few other countries, most of the world’s attendees at President Biden’s UN speech grew hungrier as he dished up US Whoppers about Russia over Ukraine.

He began by blasting Russia for abandoning long-standing nuclear arms control agreements, citing Russia’s suspension of New Start, the last of four such US Russian agreements. He omitted that is was the US that abandoned the other 3 first: Anti-Ballistic Missiles System Treaty in 2002; Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in 2019; Open Skies in 2020. Biden’s is simply “having it his way.”

On Ukraine more Whoppers. “Russia alone bears responsibility for this war. Russia alone has the power to end this war immediately. And it is Russia alone that stands in the way of peace.” But even NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has acknowledged that Putin invaded to prevent Ukraine from joining NATO after the US and the alliance refused to provide a guarantee that Kyiv would never become a member. On Ukraine provocation, Joe’s dining at Burger King; Jens at McDonalds.

Regarding Russia having sole responsibility to end it, Biden somehow omitted the US sabotaged every effort by not only Russia, but Ukraine itself, to negotiate the war’s end early on and along the way these past 19 months.

Instead of serving up Whoppers on Ukraine “his way,” Biden should understand we peace loving folks around the world “deserve a break today” from US perpetual war, direct and proxy, getting millions killed injured and displaced, with nuclear confrontation more likely every day.

Biden’s perpetual war policies are a tough Whopper to swallow.

  1. Joe sees his legacy in his own mind, which is filled with the power given to him by voters in 2020. If the media were to do its job, let voters (who would vote next year) understand the history of the proxy war in Ukraine, plus, the history of wars by this nation, there may be a different outcome next year. That does not guarantee things will change. Media controls the pace and amount of knowledge citizens need to make an informed choice. Tell a man on the street that since its founding, this country has been in 400 conflicts all over the world, and the response is the person telling the truths is un-American, a traitor.

  2. Gotta give credit to Chef Blinken and Assistant Chef Nuland for their work back in the kitchen.And to Assistant Manager Sullivan for his prompt and courteous customer service. I nominate them all to share Employee of the Month! Or is it, Employee of the Mouth? Because Biden does seem to eat it all up.
