Things are not going Russia’s way during this illegal invasion of Ukraine, as the Kremlin’s fighting force continues to hurtle toward abject mutiny and massacre on the battlefields of eastern Europe.
It is perhaps only a matter of time before the Russian army fails completely, leaving Putin with little but the nigh-inevitable use of some preposterous and dastardly weapon – nukes or chemicals or even both.
But, despite his desperation and sheer fatalistic mania, some within the American Democratic Party are insisting that we sit down and make a deal with the genocidal tyrant.
Thirty left-wing members of Congress called on President Biden Monday to negotiate directly with Russian President Vladimir Putin in a bid to end his eight-month-old war on Ukraine.
One of the nation’s most controversial liberals was right smack dab in the middle of the unhinged suggestion.
In a letter to the White House, which included Bronx and Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Brooklyn Rep. Yvette Clarke among its signatories, the Democrats called on Biden to begin a “proactive diplomatic push, redoubling efforts to seek a realistic framework for a ceasefire.”
“We urge you to make vigorous diplomatic efforts in support of a negotiated settlement and ceasefire, engage in direct talks with Russia [and] explore prospects for a new European security arrangement acceptable to all parties that will allow for a sovereign and independent Ukraine,” the lawmakers wrote.
The idea of possibly capitulating to Putin is absurd at best, and a sure way to see the United States diminished on the world’s stage.
