President Biden Is Now Saying That Any Russian Incursion Into Ukraine Will Be Seen As An Invasion


Daily Mail: 'Any incursion into Ukraine is an invasion': Blundering Biden is sent out with a SCRIPT to read as White House scrambles to clear up mess caused by his press conference gaffe that was taken as a 'green-light' for Russian attack 

* Biden joined the concerted White House cleanup effort Thursday morning 

* He said if 'any assembled Russian units move across the Ukrainian border, that is an invasion' 

* He also warned there would be a response to cyber attacks or 'Little Green Men' – Russian forces disguised as militia 

* His comments came after furious pushback from Ukraine 

* 'We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations,' wrote Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky 

* Ukraine's foreign minister said Biden's comments could invite a Russian attack 

* VP Kamala Harris snapped at NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie when she told the vice president that the White House's messaging was unclear 

* She reiterated that any invasion of Ukraine's borders by Russia would be come at a 'severe cost' 

President Joe Biden today used a script to offer his fulsome backing to Ukraine after he yesterday inflamed the invasion crisis by suggesting a 'minor incursion' by Russia would go unpunished. 

Biden said Thursday a move by any Russian forces into Ukraine would constitute an unacceptable invasion. 

Biden also said the U.S. would respond to any moves by 'Little Green Men', a reference to Russian soldiers posing as militia, as well as cyber actions and 'paramilitary tactics.'

WNU Editor: This is both embarrassing and dangerous. The Kremlin believes that the Biden administration is dysfunctional and disorganized. This only reinforces that perception.

I think everyone has come to the realization that Biden and the people who tell him what to say, are a risk to world peace---even the Russians. I wonder how the real possibility that Biden will do something extremely foolish and dumb affects their thinking and planning.

The US Invaded Afghanistan with relatively few numbers of mostly special ops forces back in the early 00's so likely any "incursion" here would be the same, other than cyber only etc. The Kremlin's words/actions have been dangerous as well.

The whole situation has stunk and has been largely a waste for a while Imo.

If the Russians invade, Biden & NATO will do nothing. They'll slap their gums, do a few phoney baloney sanctions & that'll be it Ditto China if it invades or blockades Taiwan until it falls. Same if Iran has a nuke or three up their sleeves. The Democrats will continue with their racial agendas, to persecute parents, encouraging a massive wave of humanity to invade the Southern border, to stop Trump running at all costs, with trumped up charges.(pun intended) If the case against him falls through but they prevent him from running, that's a massive victory for them. Why does Russia & China need to attack the USA, when the Democrats are doing a perfect job of destroying their own political systems & country? Keep ducking 🙈
