Joe Biden is pushing forward his agenda of sending weapons worth billions of dollars to Ukraine as part of his determination of diverting attention of American people from ongoing series of his failures to battlefield in Kiev. While the US Congress has already approved a US$40 billion budget for sending weapons and military hardware to Ukraine, experts are already questioning about the risk of these weapons ultimately landing in Ukrainian black markets and finally slipping into possessions of terrorists and jihadists, while Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky’s key-allies – the neo-Nazi groups in the country, particularly Azov Battalion, which is seen as the future Nazi Al Qaeda would get hold of sophisticated weapons and military hardware which would be ultimately used in spreading terrorist acts throughout the bordering nations of Ukraine and beyond.
Recently, several media reports pointed out that the weapons and military hardware sent by the United States and its Western allies was possibly entering black market in Ukraine, which would be a repetition of American experience in Afghanistan and Syria.
According to Lucas Leiroz, a researcher in Social Sciences at the Rural Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and a geopolitical consultant, “In the recent history of conflicts involving the US, there has been an increasing number of incidents of war material diversion, with US weapons falling into the “wrong hands”. In most cases, the weapons officially sent by the US are somehow diverted when they arrive in the destination country, falling into the domain of contrabandists who sell them on the international black market. The result is that terrorist organizations, extremist militias, paramilitary groups and drug traffickers around the world benefit from this, purchasing such weapons illegally.
“US forces have had experience with weapons diverted from the battlefield in virtually every recent war the country has been involved in, most notably in Afghanistan and Syria, which are supposed to be the origin countries of many of the weapons that are now used by terrorists across Central Asia and the Middle East – as well as in other continents, considering the influx of such organizations to different parts of the planet, mainly Africa. It is worth noting that in these conflicts there was direct participation of the American forces, which maintained military personnel in the countries that were receiving the weapons, which is not the case now in Ukraine. Therefore, there is even greater fear that the weapons sent to Kiev will be diverted considering that there are no American troops to supervise the direction of the material on Ukrainian soil”.
Meanwhile, US Senator Rand Paul has come up with stunning revelation about the source of American aid money coming for helping Biden’s war against Russia in Ukraine.
According to counterterrorism expert Robert Spencer, “He [Joe Biden] has erased America’s Southern border, brought in well over a million unvetted migrants, drastically reduced America’s prestige and influence worldwide, destroyed the energy independence the nation achieved during the Trump administration, and has overseen catastrophic rises in gas prices and, indeed, in prices overall.
“And now, amid a baby formula shortage and a time when Americans are suffering from an economic crisis that threatens to be larger than any such downturn since the Great Depression, we are sending $40 billion to Ukraine. According to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Biden’s handlers aren’t going to come up with that money simply by firing up the printing presses and afflicting the American people with more inflation; instead, we’re borrowing it from Communist China. What could possibly go wrong?”
Few days ago, Athena Thorne of PJ Media noted, “[Rand] Paul has been a staunch opponent of the Ukraine aid package, saying: “Reserving the right to object, my oath of office is to the US Constitution, not to any foreign nation. And no matter how sympathetic the cause, my oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America. We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.” He pointed out that “gasoline alone is up 48 percent, and energy prices are up 32 percent over the last year. Food prices have increased by nearly 9 percent. Used vehicle prices are up 35 percent for the year, and new vehicle prices have increased 12 percent or more.”
And so dooming the American economy does seem to be exactly what Biden’s handlers are doing. Paul said: “I think it’s important to know that we don’t have any money to send, we have to borrow money from China to send it to Ukraine. And I think most people kind of get that, and many Republicans will say that when it’s a new social program, but if it’s military aid to a country, they’re like we can borrow that, that’s a justified borrowing”.
“He pointed out that the Republicans who voted to send this aid to Ukraine were undermining the argument that Biden was responsible for the current skyrocketing inflation: “The problem is that it all leads to inflation, so it kind of hurts the Republican argument that Biden’s spending and Biden’s debt leads to inflation, except for when it’s bipartisan spending and that doesn’t really count”.
“Indeed. The Ukraine aid vote is more evidence that there is just one big political party in Washington, with two major factions that see eye-to-eye on most everything, differing only in minor matters of priority and procedure. “This is the bipartisan consensus right now on Ukraine”, Paul continued. “Republican and Democrat leadership are exactly the same. So they get together. But in order to get together to get this, it’s guns and butter, you look at the US$40 billion, it’s a lot of guns, but in order to get the gun they had to give out a lot of butter and so there’s a lot of spending going to European countries for food throughout the world. What we’ve done is given away the farm to make us weaker.” Yes, and there will come a time when the bills will have to be paid”.
Robert Spencer in his article said: “Whatever happens, it is difficult to see how any of this can end well for the United States. The administration continues to pursue relentlessly inflationary policies that are now threatening to bring the entire economy to a standstill. Do Biden’s handlers have any regard for the American people at all? Or are they so determined to pursue their internationalist socialist fantasies that they don’t care if they bring economic disaster upon the nation and plunge millions of Americans into poverty? After all, those who cannot support themselves will be forced to rely on the nation’s social safety net and will become more inclined to vote for the party that will keep that safety net as capacious and comfortable as possible. So, for the elites, there’s just no downside.
“As another massive American taxpayer money giveaway barreled down the fast track Thursday, lone Sen. Rand Paul stood tall and yelled, “Stop!”
“The US$40 billion aid package had already passed the House on Tuesday, with only 54 Republicans voting against it. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell agreed to fast-track the spending bill through the upper chamber on Thursday. But when Schumer asked the legislative body if there were any objections to passing it with a simple unanimous vote, Kentucky Republican Rand Paul threw a monkeywrench into the machinery”.
Raising objection at Joe Biden’s mad desperation of sending weapons and military hardware worth billions of dollars to Ukraine, Senator Rand Paul said: “Reserving the right to object, my oath of office is to the US Constitution, not to any foreign nation,” declared the stiff-spined legislator. “And no matter how sympathetic the cause, my oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America”.
He added that, “We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the US economy”.
After a summary of the financial pain in which Americans find themselves, such as drastically increased prices for food, fuel, and cars, Paul said, “Inflation doesn’t just come out of nowhere; it comes from deficit spending”.
The stalwart senator went on to enumerate additional reasons why Congress should reconsider casually handing over yet another US$40 billion to Ukraine.
“If this gift to Ukraine passes, our total aid to Ukraine will almost equal the entire military budget of Russia,” Paul pointed out. When combined with the US$13 billion the Unites States has already sent to Ukraine, the new cash dump would bring total US aid to the nation to almost US$54 billion — just this spring. Russia’s entire military budget in 2021 was just under US$66 billion.
“And it’s not as if we have that money lying around; we will have to borrow that money from China to send it to Ukraine”, Rand Paul added.
He also said that “The cost of this package we are voting on today is more than the US spent during the first year of the US conflict in Afghanistan”.
Paul also said, “the billions of dollars in funding towers in comparison to what the United States spends on cancer research annually—US$6 billion—and is more than the government collects in gas taxes each year to build roads and bridges. It nearly equals the entire State Department budget … and exceeds the budget for the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Energy”.
From the desperation of Joe Biden in helping Zelensky and neo-Nazis in Ukraine, someone may question, how much do the Bidens owe the corrupt regime in Kiev.
While everyone in the US is facing immense sufferings due to Joe Biden’s disastrous failures, one may now ask – will America’s billions of dollars help in secretly nourishing the wallets of Hunter Biden and other members of the administration as well as the Democratic Party.
