President Joe Biden’s European visit waned from bad to worse on Friday as he upended the official position of his Polish counterpart. Watch:
“As you and I have said before, Ambassador,” Biden told Polish President Andrzej Duda. “Sorry, Mr. President.”
“The most important thing we can do from the very beginning is keep the democracies united,” he added.
President Biden is meeting with President Andrzej Duda of Poland and officials in charge of Ukraine’s humanitarian response. At a precarious time in Europe when Biden currently serves as America’s top diplomat, even the slightest lapses reflect Europe’s lack of focus and grasp of the volatile situation.
Poland played a huge role in the Russo-Ukrainian war by taking in tens of thousands of Ukrainian refugees. Duda described the refugees coming to Biden as “our guests, our brothers, our neighbors from Ukraine, who are in a very difficult situation today”.
Biden is going to Warsaw this evening, and he is expected to meet with Ukrainian refugees on Saturday.
President Biden also spoke to soldiers from the Army’s 82nd Air Force while in Poland and issued a related statement implying they were going to Ukraine. Watch:
“You’ll see when you’re there, you’ll see women, young people standing in the middle, in front of a damn tank and saying ‘I’m not leaving,’ I’m standing my ground. . They are unbelievable. ”
The Department of Defense has not informed US military ground operations in Ukraine, which would be a major escalation that could trigger a regional war with Russia, if not the possibility. out World War III.
Biden also drew comparisons between Ukraine and Tianenman Square, the 1989 event when a brave soldier stood in front of a tank in Communist China.
“When you see a 30-year-old woman standing in front of a tank with a rifle… I mean, let’s talk about what happened in Tiananmen Square… it’s Tiananmen Square squared,” he said. Biden said.
So Biden will bring up Tianenman Square when he talks about Ukraine, but not when he talks to the Chinese. May God help us.
