Zelensky pressed Biden, Congress for more offensive weapons to provoke Russia into war with NATO
By JD Heyes // Dec 22, 2022

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made another direct appeal to the U.S. Congress and President Joe Biden on Wednesday for more offensive weapons that, if he gets them and uses them against Russia, will dramatically increase the likelihood of a wider war with NATO.

According to reports, Zelenskyy made his way to the U.S. by first hopping aboard a train in his country and making a high-risk trip overland into Poland, where he then got on a U.S. Air Force plane to the states.

"The President really believes that as we approach winter, as we enter … a new phase in this war, of Mr. Putin’s aggression, that this is a good time for the two leaders to sit down face to face and talk," national security communications coordinator John Kirby, a retired U.S. Navy admiral, told reporters.

However,  Reuters portrayed the visit somewhat cynically:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy headed to Washington on Wednesday to meet President Joe Biden, address Congress and seek "weapons, weapons and more weapons" in his first overseas trip since Russia invaded Ukraine 300 days ago.

Prior to the Democrat-controlled Congress' consideration of a massive (and massively irresponsible) spending bill in the neighborhood of around $1.7 trillion, Zelenskyy nevertheless seemed less than grateful: "We will pass it on from the boys to the Congress, to the president of the United States. We are grateful for their support, but it is not enough. It is a hint — it is not enough."

Never mind that the American taxpayers have already footed tens of billions of dollars (much of it borrowed) more than all other NATO countries combined for weapons to Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the American taxpayer-funded gravy train will continue, as Biden has pointed out.

"I look forward to signing the omnibus bill soon, which includes $45 billion for Ukraine," he said, while also announcing another $1.8 billion of 'security assistance' that includes both direct transfers as well as contracts for future ammo supplies. In total, it will constitute "$2.2 billion in new support," Biden said. The package will also include a patriot missile battery, Biden said.

Needless to say, all of the usual establishment politicians and their mouthpieces were all ga-ga over Zelenskyy, even as he insulted them with characteristic ungratefulness.

But others noted that Zelenskyy was insulting on many levels.

And let us never forget that the Bidens were making big money off of a corrupt 'business' deal in Ukraine via son Hunter, and not long ago.

Our political establishment has embraced Ukraine for a reason, and it has nothing to do with being "noble" or "doing the right thing."
