According to reports, President Joe Biden has taken the United States one step closer to a possible military clash with Russia by announcing the deployment of soldiers to Eastern Europe.
Joe Biden wants to send American troops to assist in the defense of Ukraine's border while his administration is helping thousands of illegal migrants break our country's immigration laws and flying them to communities around the country on secret flights.

Biden’s comments came after Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley cautioned that a Russian assault into Ukraine would have “horrific” consequences.
According to Milley, an attack on Ukraine would be “big, very major,” with “massive” losses, due to the caliber of forces deployed.
“You can imagine it in congested metropolitan areas, beside roadways, etc. It’d be horrible. It would be awful and it’s not required. We think a diplomatic solution is best here.”
On Friday, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin warned reporters war with Russia was “not imminent.”
“There’s no rationale why this thing needs to escalate,” Austin added. “Putin can deescalate. He can disperse his forces. He has the option of discussion and diplomacy.”
Last week, a senior Ukrainian source notified that CNN’s phone conversation between Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “didn’t go over well.” Ukraine accused the US of exaggerating Russia’s danger level.
The security situation remains unclear, owing to heightened Russian military threats, according to Biden’s Department of State. Americans should consider leaving now.
On Monday, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg stated NATO’s principal priority was to avert a military war in Ukraine.
Speaking at an event in Brussels, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday that the build-up of Russian troops at the borders with Ukraine and Belarus is not necessarily the only way Moscow plans to put pressure on Western allies https://t.co/fCnnk716CT

“That’s why we make it very plain to Russia if they use aggression against Ukraine again, it will hurt them badly. There will be punitive measures, economic, financial, and political,” added Stoltenberg.
“NATO allies also assist Ukraine. Ukraine, like any other sovereign country, has the right to self-defense. NATO allies back them in exercising their right to self-defense.”
Inconsistency from the United States
The reports come after the Biden administration instructed all American Embassy families to depart Ukraine over the weekend.
According to the US State Department, “Travel to Ukraine is not advised, owing to heightened Russian military threats and COVID-19. Be extra cautious in Ukraine due to crime and turmoil. Some locations are more at risk.”
Per a person close to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he “does not believe there is any reasonably imminent threat to Kyiv.”
“To put it bluntly, these Americans are more secure in Kyiv than in Los Angeles or any other crime-ridden US metropolis,” the insider claimed.
On the one hand, Washington instructs Ukraine on democratization. “We back you. It’s up to you whether you join the West. We will fight Russian aggression with you.”
Then, Russia raises the heat, and they’re the first to depart. To Zelensky, Biden’s panicked reaction was “utterly ludicrous” and a symptom of “US inconsistency.”
Biden’s antics yet again put America’s position on a global scale under strain. The US needs a competent and strong leader, especially in times like this.
