Joe Biden Admits that NATO Would End Up in a War With Russia If Ukraine Joins Alliance Before Conflict Ends

On July 7, 2023, United States President Joe Biden announced during an interview with CNN that NATO could come into a direct conflict with Russia — a nuclear power — if Ukraine joined the Western military alliance before the Russo-Ukrainian conflict is over. 

“I don’t think there is unanimity in NATO about whether or not to bring Ukraine into the NATO family now, at this moment, in the middle of a war,” Biden stated. “For example, if you did that, then, you know – and I mean what I say – we’re determined to commit every inch of territory that is NATO territory. It’s a commitment that we’ve all made, no matter what. If the war is going on, then we’re all in war. We’re at war with Russia, if that were the case.”

Indeed, there’s a growing realization that the Collective West’s proxy war against Russia in Ukraine is turning into an exercise in futility. Russia will likely come out on top of this conflict due to how it enjoys escalatory dominance. 

Sending more military aid to Ukraine is merely prolonging the inevitable — Ukraine’s ultimate defeat. 

Now, adding Ukraine into NATO will open a huge can of worms. For Russia, keeping Ukraine neutral is of the utmost importance. By joining Ukraine, Russia will have Western armaments aimed its ways — a geopolitical circumstance that Russian authorities would never tolerate. It would be the equivalent of China and Russia installing military facilities across the Caribbean basin. 

Unfortunately, such degrees of strategic empathy are not present among the West’s ruling classes. For that reason, military aid will continue flowing into Ukraine, consequences be damned. Hopefully, the next generation of foreign policy decisionmakers grasp the errors of their predecessors and move towards a foreign policy guided by realism and restraint.
