According to a recent articles In the New York Times, the Biden administration had intelligence that Russia was planning an invasion of Ukraine months before the actual invasion.
However, instead of disseminating information, getting Ukraine ready to defend itself or do something useful with it, the Biden Team decided to hand it over to China in the hope that China would prevent Putin from invading.
Of course, that’s not all that happened. The Chinese are not friends, but they are having a closer relationship with Russia, so they left that to the Russians. Here’s what the New York Times reports (emphasis ours):
Over three months, senior Biden administration officials held half a dozen emergency meetings with top Chinese officials, including Americans present intelligence showing Russian military buildup around Ukraine and implore the Chinese to ask Russia not to invadeaccording to US officials.
Each time, Chinese officials, including foreign ministers and ambassadors to the United States, oppose the Americans, saying they don’t think an invasion is taking place. After a diplomatic exchange in December, US officials received intelligence that Beijing shared information with Moscow, telling the Russians that the US was trying to sow discord – and that China will not attempt to impede Russia’s plans and actions, officials said.
Previously unreported talks between US and Chinese officials suggest the Biden administration has attempted to use intelligence and diplomatic findings to persuade a superpower it sees as an increasingly rival rise to deter an invasion of Ukraine, and how that country, led by President Xi Jinping, persisted in siding with Russia even amid evidence of Moscow’s military offensive plans over the winter.
This account is based on interviews with senior administration officials with knowledge of the conversations, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the diplomacy.
What was predictable, however, was more than just the Reds’ rejection of Biden’s efforts to get them to deter Putin from invading. In addition, they transferred the information we provided to them to Russia. Like The Washington Times report:
Any fool can tell Biden that the Chinese are not our friends and won’t stop Russia from poking fun at America’s Global Empire. They want to see us fail; Of course they won’t work with Biden to stop Putin.
Maybe Biden thinks old friends of Hunter will help. If he hoped so, it seems they didn’t.
As with John Kerry’s Climate Change StatementThis latest revelation is just one more proof that our elites are not serious and cannot be trusted to properly deal with a multipolar world.
