Although US President Joe Biden and members of his administration are trying to fool the world by stating America and its European allies are sending military hardware and cash worth billions of dollars to Ukraine for “saving” the country from “Russian aggression”, in reality it is Joe Biden’s proxy war with the aim of destroying Russia and also use this war as an effective tool in getting reelected in 2024 presidential election. Meaning, Biden is not going to see an end to this war even in the distant future. It may be mentioned here that, while Washington brands foreign nations as hegemonic, aggressionist and invaders, in reality it is them who have past record of illegally invading a number of foreign countries, including Vietnam, Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan. Meanwhile, there is growing anti0interventionist sentiment among grassroots conservatives and libertarians in the United States, who are opposing agendas of warmongers in Washington.
Recently, when Tucker Carlson asked likely Republican presidential candidates for their positions on the cruel war in Ukraine which has steeped in the blood of Ukrainian proxies; he posted their replies on Twitter – where there were only two who opposed the war – Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.
Former President @realDonaldTrump answers our Ukraine questionnaire:
“Like inflation and numerous other self inflicted wounds and mistakes made over the past two years, Russia would definitely not have raided and attacked Ukraine if I was your President. In fact, for four years…

Donald Trump’s responses came as no surprise. As before, he called for the war to end quickly, responding to Carlson in part as follows:
“Russia would definitely not have raided and attacked Ukraine if I was your President. In fact, for four years they didn’t attack, nor did they have any intention of doing so as long as I was in charge. … That is all history, but how does it end, and it must end, NOW!
“If I were President, that horrible war would end in 24 hours, or less. It can be done, and it must be done– now!”
“…tell Ukraine that there will be little more money coming from us, unless Russia continued to prosecute the war. The President must meet with each side, then both sides together, and quickly work out a deal. This can be easily done if conducted by the right President. Both sides are weary and ready to make a deal. The meetings should start immediately, there is no time to spare. The death and destruction MUST END NOW! Properly executed, this terrible and tragic War, a War that never should have started in the first place, will come to a speedy end”.
Asked if opposing Russia in Ukraine a vital American national strategic interest, Trump replied: “No, but it is for Europe. But not for the United States. That is why Europe should be paying far more than we are, or equal”.
Tucker Carlson also asked the following questions:
Should the United States support regime change in Russia?
Donald Trump replied, “No. We should support regime change in the United States, that’s far more important. The Biden administration are the ones who got us into this mess”.
In response to the observation that Russia’s economy and currency are stronger than before the war, Trump was asked if US sanctions have been effective? “No, they have not been effective. Just the opposite”.
Tucker Carlson Asked – do you believe the United States faces the risk of nuclear war with Russia?
Trump said: “It depends on who the President of the United States is. At the moment, with Biden as president, absolutely yes”.
Trump’s anti-interventionist sentiments were well known and had earned him the ire of neocons and progressive interventionists alike.
Donald Trump’s main rival in 2024 presidential election for GOP nomination, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis also voices a similar anti-interventionist sentiment, where in response to Tucker Carlson’s question DeSantis issued a statement stating:
“While the US has many vital national interests, (for example) – checking the economic, cultural, and military power of the Chinese Communist Party, becoming further entangled in a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia is not one of them. The Biden administration’s virtual ‘blank check’ funding of this conflict for ‘as long as it takes,’ without any defined objectives or accountability, distracts from our country’s most pressing challenges…
“Without question, peace should be the objective. The US should not provide assistance that could require the deployment of American troops or enable Ukraine to engage in offensive operations beyond its borders. F-16s and long-range missiles should therefore be off the table. These moves would risk explicitly drawing the United States into the conflict and drawing us closer to a hot war between the world’s two largest nuclear powers. That risk is unacceptable.
“A policy of “regime change” in Russia (no doubt popular among the DC foreign policy interventionists) would greatly increase the stakes of the conflict, making the use of nuclear weapons more likely”.
Florida Governor @RonDeSantisFL answers our Ukraine questionnaire:
“While the U.S. has many vital national interests – securing our borders, addressing the crisis of readiness within our military, achieving energy security and independence, and checking the economic, cultural,…

But, American warmongers and agents of military industrial complex as well as corrupt media cartel would not appreciate what Donald Trump, DeSantis or majority of the Americans are saying about the Ukraine war. Instead, Joe Biden, his administration, several European leaders and the entire bunch of corrupt corporate media cartel would keep on pushing the agenda of prolonging the Ukraine war with numerous excuses and try to expand the war front up to many East European countries. As if, they will only be satisfied – when Ukraine is turned into a totally destroyed and burned into ashes.

Miserable propaganda, directly out of Putin’s troll farm. Was hoping a bit more from this outlet.
The anti-americanism of your media is desesperating. Not trying to defend the US here, they’re guilty of many horrors, but it’s so annoying to see people forgiving Russia’s behaviour just because of their hatred of America, even when they are doing the same, or maybe worse in that case.
I don’t get this whataboutism. If it’s condemnable, neither the US or Russia should do it. Moreover, if Russia wants to be the super power and one leader of some multi-polar world, they should set an example, and not behave like their enemy.
Russia is the last European colonialist power and it is time it understands it cannot impose its will upon all neighbouring countries, because it thinks it has some historical right to decide for them. Kind of weird that most countries from the Soviet block joined or want to join NATO, no? Maybe it’s time for Russia to reflect a bit over its behaviour?
The empire is over, and its time for the people to decide for themselves.
Russia provoked the war in Ukraine in 2014 because it couldn’t stand to lose its grip on the european-and-democratic leaning Ukraine, just by manipulating some polulations nostalgic of the Soviet era
Russia has been fueling separatists in Georgia to prevent the country to become fully independent and functioning.
Russia crushed and decimated Chechnya because they dared to ask to become independent (NB: compare that to the conflict in Donbas, and you will find Ukraine very mild in its response toward independantists…).
And now Russia even sends all poor russian ethnic minorities from the remote regions to fight a war that they don’t even understand…
Is it just to avoid to bother the richer slavic citizen from the big cities (like they clean the prisons by sending convicts to the front, to avoid an unpopular mobilization), or maybe to do some ethnic cleansing in the the regions (Buratia, Dagestan..), and reinforce the slavic predominance, preventing also some possible independentist movements…?
The US are certainly no angel, but the clemency the so-called “Global South”, and also the anti-imperialist Left, is showing to this imperialistic power, relic of the colonial era, is really disturbing. I wish they wake up from Putin’s evil charm.
