Well, this is what happens when Republicans abdicate world leadership in favor of being dictators in the name of putting America and only America first.
Might makes right!
A nod to the classic 19th century Great Powers cartoons
for all those squabbling about presidential influence on this…I dont think our foreign policy has changed much from Obama through Trump to Biden
Great Britain used to own countries all over the world — including Taiwan. It seems these guys also want a piece of that pie.
Let’s be fair.. need to set a plate for some counties in the middle East on that table.
Speak softly and carry a big stick(not a fly-swatter).
President Vladimir Putin’s career of pursuing revenge and redemption for Russia converges on this moment, as the United States presents him with a path off the ledge that he’s stepped onto along the border with Ukraine.
The dangerous standoff over Ukraine appears to continue after Tuesday’s virtual summit between Putin and President Biden. The initial White House readout was terse and opaque. The statement said Biden had expressed “deep concerns” about Russia’s actions, and warned that the United States and its allies “would respond with strong economic and other measures in the event of military escalation.”
Biden also “called for de-escalation and a return to diplomacy.” U.S. officials have said that means a new attempt to implement the 2014 and 2015 Minsk protocols, signed after Russia seized Crimea and sponsored a proxy war in eastern Ukraine. This diplomacy will require “follow up” discussions, the White House said.
Will Putin take this path over the next few weeks and months? Or will he continue to threaten invasion if he doesn’t achieve his demand for a formal pledge that Ukraine will never join NATO — something Biden has ruled out? Putin’s wisest strategy would be to take a Minsk exit ramp and claim it as a victory. But stubborn, self-infatuated leaders sometimes do stupid things.
Back to the USSR
Arrrgghhh!!! Call out the PC Gestapo for xenophobic racial and ethnic stereotyping!!
Is Ariail suggesting that these are “done” actions?
They are following America’s example take what you want and to hell with criticism
Shod has it right, but the irony is that “that other guy” actually thought that kissing off our allies and parading around like the naked emperor while spouting empty threats was “leadership”.
Tucker Carlson support the Russian invasion of Ukraine
I don’t know how, but I clicked on something and GoComics identified “The Insane asylum” profile as the infamous KE. I guess trolls just reinvent themselves. :-D
So why is it that the right-wing media in the U.S. cheers for the dictator of a hostile foreign country to invade an ally, with whom we have a treaty of security in exchange for them giving up their nuclear arms? Oh yeah, that’s right. Because the wannabe-dictator of the U.S. is himself a useful idiot for right-wing nihilists who want to destroy democracy and this country, aided and abetted by the likes of MT Bill and others.
Great reference! This one references this 200+ year old cartoon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Plumb-pudding_in_danger
Forgot to show t-f-g as the waiter who brought them the dish they are carving up.
If we don’t put America first those war mongers would head for us!
