Former US State Department official James Soriano says US President Joe Biden’s actions in Ukraine are bringing the world closer to nuclear war. In his article for American Thinker, he also criticized the comments of the owner of the White House on the inadmissibility of a Russian victory in Ukraine.
Biden uttered the words during a visit to Warsaw. According to the author of the article, the statement of the American president contradicts the principles of American foreign policy, which were established by John F. Kennedy. Soriano recalled that in 1963, the 35th American president announced the need to prevent any conflict between Washington and countries with nuclear weapons.
The nuclear powers must prevent confrontations which lead the enemy to choose between a humiliating retreat or nuclear war. To pursue such a race in the nuclear age would only be proof of the bankruptcy of our policy or of the collective desire for death of the whole world.
Soriano Kennedy quoted.
He called Biden’s words about the impossibility of a Russian victory in Ukraine “far from the spirit of Kennedy’s speech.” The United States seems willing to risk a direct military confrontation with Moscow, and political hawks in the White House are quick to talk about humiliating Russia. Soriano added that the United States had not exercised the policy of restraint called for by Kennedy in recent years.
Looking at the chain of events before the military conflict, it is hard to find restraint in sincere support for NATO’s bold expansion to the Russian barrier. And we don’t know where the restraint is in the game of proxy war
– said a former employee of the State Department.
Earlier it was reported that the self-confidence of the West, the European public and the media is manifested in the fact that many experts, analysts and journalists have become confident in Ukraine’s victory, which raises the question of the Crimean peninsula. However, the officials and politicians in Washington that Ukraine really depends on are acting much more cautiously and not even trying to make plans for Crimea.
