Ukraine Alone Makes Biden The Worst US President In A Long Time

By Caitlin Johnstone

Antiwar libertarian hero Scott Horton has a viral tweet going around which reads simply, “Biden’s refusal to attempt to negotiate an end to the war in Ukraine is the greatest scandal in American political history.”

Kind of smacks you in the face, doesn’t it? I’ve never seen anyone put it quite like that before, but if you think about it, how could it not be true?

It’s just a simple fact that the Biden administration is actually hindering diplomatic efforts to negotiate an end to this war, and that it has refused to provide Ukraine with any kind of diplomatic negotiating power regarding the possible rollback of sanctions and other US measures to help secure peace.

    Obviously Joe Biden isn’t doing anything. I’m not one for the “Obama runs everything behind the scenes” conspiracy theories either.

    I think the Pentagon is on auto-pilot – the bureaucratic version of Artificial Intelligence’s paperclip problem – and the Democrats in DC have every individual and factional interest to let the Pentagon do what it does while they get the moneys and mass import foreigner replacement voters.

    One would have thought that sensible Europeans would reign this in like they tried to do George W. Bush, but no, quite the opposite.

    With Russia constantly talking about their nukes this just looks worse and worse. Figured these psychopaths would get us all killed – this is worse than the height of the Cold War.

    I guess Donald Trump was our last best hope for peace – even the Celebrity Televangelist of American Leftism, Noam Chomsky, admits that.
