Jen Psaki made this major announcement about America’s response to Putin’s war in Ukraine
Vladmir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine pushed America closer to World War III.
Everyone looked to Joe Biden for his answer.
And Jen Psaki made this major announcement about America’s response to Putin’s war in Ukraine.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky requested that America establish a “no fly zone” over his nation.
That means American planes must not only establish dominance over the skies, but must also shoot down any planes from Russia.
American fighter pilots blowing Russian jets out of the sky would escalate the conflict past the point of no return and lead to an exchange of nuclear weapons between Russia and the United States.
For that reason, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said categorically that America would not establish a “no fly zone” over Ukraine.
“That is definitely escalatory, that would potentially put us in a place where we are in a military conflict with Russia. That is not something [President Joe Biden] wants to do,” Psaki told reporters. “Those are all the reasons why that’s not a good idea.”
“We are not going to have a military war with Russia with US troops,” Psaki continued.
United Nations Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield also doubled down on the message that the Biden administration would not send U.S. troops into Ukraine since American forces would only serve as a tripwire to start a nuclear war.
“We’re not going to put American troops in danger. That means we’re not going to put American troops in the air as well, but we will work with the Ukrainians to give them the ability to defend themselves,” Thomas-Greenfield told CNN.
Americans have been worried that Joe Biden would bungle his way through this crisis like he did during the disastrously executed withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Establishing a “no-fly zone,” as RINO members of Congress like Adam Kinzinger have demanded, would be one of the most irresponsible moves a President could make.
The only way to enforce a “no fly zone” is by ordering American pilots to shoot down Russian airplanes.
That is a recipe for World War III and the potential destruction of human civilization.
Of course, Biden has done little right as President and during this crisis.
But the administration rejecting a “no fly zone” caused many Americans to breathe a sigh of relief.
