Former vice president Mike Pence demands that the West send F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine. According to these ruling-class sociopaths, the unprecedented military assistance that they and their NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) allies have already sent to Ukraine to fight Russia is not enough,
Pence, who seeks the Republican nomination for president in 2024, believes that the United States rulers need to give Ukrainians “everything they need” to keep the war going. “President Joe Biden has been slow in providing military resources to Ukraine,” the politician stated during a CNN town hall on Wednesday. “We are [still] waiting on F-16s to be transferred from somewhere.”
“I believe the United States of America needs to continue to provide the courageous soldiers in Ukraine with the resources they need to repel … the Russian invasion and restore their territorial integrity,” Pence declared during a speech that followed his official campaign announcement, according to a report by RT.
Moscow considers the hostilities in Ukraine to be part of a US-led proxy war against Russia. It said it was left with no option but to act militarily after in late 2021 NATO refused to address Russia’s security concerns and pushed on with a progressively deeper involvement within Ukraine. –RT
Pence, along with others, have accused Biden of being “soft” on Russia and its
president current ruler, Vladimir Putin. During the town hall, he called the Russian leader a “war criminal” and seemingly rebuked his former running mate, Donald Trump, for calling Putin a “genius.” Another Trump administration member-turned-GOP nomination contender, Nikki Haley, urged ensuring Kyiv’s victory to “send a message to China.
The war-mongering is ongoing, especially since there’s now evidence that Ukraine has started a massive counteroffensive against Russia, that Moscow says is failing.
It’s certain that Russia will not see the U.S. sending F-16 to Ukraine as anything less than a provocation.
