The Ukraine situation has illustrated that there is a wealth of mindless rhetoric and armchair generals most of which shows me that there is little understanding of how this whole conflict is working.
Just how will the American people feel on the handling of Biden over the invasion of Ukraine by Vlad the Invader?
I read that over 50% of the American people want Biden to do more on the Ukraine situation…..
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will have far more serious repercussions around the world than on U.S. domestic politics. We at FiveThirtyEight are experts on the latter, though, so here’s a look at how the conflict might affect President Biden’s political standing. (With war breaking out only this week, it’s too early to say anything for sure, so consider this a scene-setter of sorts.)
First, Biden starts off this crisis with low marks from the American public on foreign policy. In five polls conducted this month,1 between 52 percent and 58 percent of respondents said they disapproved of Biden’s handling of foreign policy; only 35-44 percent said they approved.
How Will Americans Grade Biden’s Handling Of The Crisis In Ukraine?
I agree that Biden’s foreign policy sucks…..but what could he do better? My thought is make diplomacy the primary aim of the State Dept. not war as a knee jerk reaction.
Interesting that a majority disapproves or has no opinion on Ukraine aid……
One-third of Americans say they approve of President Biden’s handling of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, according to a new poll released on Friday.
A Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 33 percent of Americans say they approve of the president’s handling of the Russia-Ukraine situation, while 47 percent say they disapprove and 20 percent say they have no opinion.
Close to half of Americans polled — 48 percent — also said that they believed America’s leadership in the world had gotten weaker under Biden. Meanwhile, 23 percent said they believed it had gotten stronger and 26 percent said they believed it had stayed the same.
Americans want Biden to do more on Ukraine….what would that be?
Crippling sanctions in place, aid to Ukraine both lethal and humanitarian, rallied the world,….basically all that is left to do is commit troops. Are these uninformed trolls really ready for that?

Once more I reiterate, more could involve nuclear winters.
I think the greater point is that if we send our uniforms to Ukraine then madman Putin likely uses nukes. There will be no more 20 year wars… no more wars at all. The deterrent is fear of a nuclear exchange… not a long war.
They need to read the history books before sending even one soldier across the border into Russia. Napoleon could not defeat Russia, neither could the allies during the Crimean War, and neither could the whole might of the German war machine in 1941. A land war in Russia should be unthinkable, and never an option.
Best wishes, Pete.
Global warming might be the only friend an incursion would have but making the winters a bit warmer. chuq
Hey, chuq… unrelated topic to your post here, but thought you’d like to see this.
“Smugglers sawed through steel bollards of the U.S.-Mexico border wall more than 3,000 times in the past three years, records show”
“The government has spent $2.6 million to repair the breaches during the 2019 to 2021 fiscal years, according to unpublished U.S. Customs and Border Protection maintenance records obtained by The Washington Post under the Freedom of Information Act.”
So much for Trump’s idiotic wall.
Walls do not work just ask China….thanx for the link, Doug Be well chuq
