1. Right now, the Ukrainian people are locked in a desperate struggle against Russian invaders. Their courage in the face of Russia’s brutal onslaught stands in stark contrast to the weakness in the White House.

While President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has rallied his people to defend their homeland, President Biden has responded with timidity and half-measures.

Most recently, Biden rejected a plan to deliver Polish MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine. The Ukrainians are in dire need of aircraft and spare parts to prevent Russia from gaining air supremacy, but the president refused to give the Ukrainians these valuable tools when they were practically handed to him by one of our strongest allies, Poland.

The Poles have a long and proud tradition of killing Russian invaders. They understand that helping Ukraine in its hour of need will make future Russian aggression less likely. As a result, they offered to transfer their entire fleet of MiG-29 fighters to U.S. forces for delivery to Ukraine.

The Biden administration’s response to the Polish offer was chaotic and confused. Secretary of State Antony Blinken initially gave Poland the "green light" to give fighters to Ukraine. But then, Biden balked. He scuttled the deal and sent his flacks running to the press to claim Poland’s plan was a complete surprise. Instead of presenting a united front with Poland, the Biden administration telegraphed indecision and incompetence.

Biden’s defenders claim that sending MiGs to Ukraine would have "provoked" Putin and "escalated" America’s involvement in the war. But the United States shouldn’t be cowed by hollow threats from Moscow....

Biden’s fighter fiasco is only the latest example of his timidity in the face of Russian aggression.

When Russia built up its forces at the Ukrainian border, Biden rewarded Putin with a glitzy summit that increased his stature while gaining no concessions. On the eve of war, he admitted that a "limited incursion" into Ukraine might divide NATO and go unpunished....

When Putin made nuclear threats, Biden caved by canceling a routine missile test, even though the U.S. notified the Russians about the test months ago. He has even refused to give the Ukrainians real-time intelligence about the Russian invasion force, again out of misplaced fear of "escalation." But if information is too provocative to send, what can we send?...

At every step, Joe Biden has allowed America’s response to be dictated from Moscow out of a fanciful fear of provocation. The wages of Biden’s weakness are Russian tanks rolling through Eastern Europe. If we fail to support Ukraine, the stakes and the flames of war will rise.

2. Once in a while, Tom Cotton emerges from his befuddled state to dish out "pearls of wisdom" to "the most timid, cowardly and pathetic administration in modern American history". In his opinion piece dated March 15, he lambasted Biden for rejecting a plan to deliver Polish MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, saying the US leader's timid leadership in Ukraine is on full display in the Poland MiG fiasco. He said: "At every step, Joe Biden has allowed America’s response to be dictated from Moscow out of a fanciful fear of provocation." In conclusion, he warned: "If we fail to support Ukraine, the stakes and the flames of war will rise."

Unfortunately, Tom Cotton is not the US Secretary of State otherwise the US would not be stooping so low in the face of the enemy. If John F. Kennedy is still the US President today, he would not be such an "utter, embarrassing failure" as to let Russia go berserk in Europe. 😇

How will history look at the two-faced "gas-emitting" White House incumbent's cowardly failure to address the Ukrainian crisis? Most probably, his grave will be flooded forever with saliva from millions of future generations in the country.
