When Republican Party’s Congressman Chip Roy asks – when the Americans voted to go to war, the reply is simple – no one voted to see America involve in another war and risk lives of thousands of US troops in a foreign land. Instead, Joe Biden badly needs to push the United States towards a war against Russia, as it is the only way of hiding his series of failures and his possible impeachment following this November’s midterm elections.
According to media reports, Congressman Chip Roy (R-Texas) has condemned House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer for stating that the US is “at war”, presumably with Russia. Roy hammered Democrats and Republicans alike for deepening America’s involvement in the Ukraine conflict in order to “feel good about ourselves”.
In a video clip posted by Roy’s press office on Wednesday, the Texas Republican took aim at Hoyer for declaring on Friday that the US is “at war”, and that critics of the Democratic Party should “focus on the enemy” instead of rising energy costs at home.
“When I hear the majority leader of the other party say ‘a time of war’…I’m wondering when we voted to go to war?” Roy said.
“If we’re gonna have a proxy war, and we’re gonna give $40 billion to Ukraine, because we want to look all fancy with our blue and yellow ribbons and feel good about ourselves, maybe we should actually have a debate in this chamber”, he continued.
Roy was one of 57 House Republicans who voted against the passage of the US$40 billion military and economic aid bill for Ukraine earlier this month.
However, the bill had strong bipartisan support and passed with 368 votes to 57. It is now expected to pass the Senate later this week.
Republican lawmakers opposing the bill either argue that the money would be better spent solving domestic issues or that pumping military aid into Ukraine risks drawing the US into war with nuclear-armed Russia, or both.
Roy, who described the bill as “garbage”, reiterated these arguments on Wednesday. “When the border of this country is wide open…and fentanyl is pouring in and we have $30.5 trillion of debt and gas prices are spiking and $1,100 to fill a tank of diesel, and we go ‘oh, blank check for $40 billion”.
“By the way, I’m looking at my colleagues on this side of the aisle on that same point”, he concluded.
Aside from supporting the US$40 billion package making its way through Congress, the Biden administration has already given Ukraine nearly US$4 billion worth of weapons since February, has placed an embargo on Russian oil and gas imports, and imposed several rounds of economic sanctions on Moscow.
With the US arming Ukraine and sharing intelligence with Kiev’s forces, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has accused Washington of waging a “proxy war” against Russia, while Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev claimed on Tuesday that the West has used Ukraine as pretext to fight an “undeclared war” against Russia’s “very statehood”.
While experts are fearing a “cruel hunger” ahead due to Ukraine war, the passage of US$40 billion bill in the Congress should be a matter of Champagne celebration to arms makers as they are certainly going to get a huge slice of the total budget. Meanwhile, amongst those who voted in favor of this bill, handsome kickbacks would come in their ways. I am not going to even disbelieve, if Hunter Biden, the scandalous son of Joe Biden has not already started early celebration thinking his massive prospective of getting cash incentives for his and other members of the corruption-plagued family.
American lawmakers have passed this huge bill when majority of the people in the country are already feeling suffocated with current inflations, gas shortage, border crisis, unemployment, rise in terrorism and above all – painful shortage of baby formula. By failing in addressing these crucial issues, Joe Biden is giving his full energy towards expediting a war against Russia by providing billions of dollars into the pockets of arms manufacturers and military hardware makers. He thinks, this is the only way of saving his political future and that of his party from real catastrophe by the end of this year.
People may think, what would be the ultimate result of the US-Russia war. My answer is simple. Russia will win the war for many reasons, one of which is the size of its army and strategic position as it has land borders with Ukraine. Now people may say – Ukraine also has land borders with other European nations which would allow American, European and NATO military convoys into Ukraine. But they cannot say with certainty – what is the ultimate fate of Ukraine. In my opinion, Ukraine is going to become the epicenter of Nazis and fascists. It will go into the tight grips of Azov Battalion – the Nazi Al Qaeda. In other words, peace in Ukraine will go into extinct forever. This is not the question about the victors of this war. The vital question is – are the Ukrainians ready to enter a land of barbaric actions of Nazis and fascists?
