The Biden Regime Promotes More Warmongers to Key Foreign Policy Positions
According to a report by anti-war journalist Caitlin Johnstone, President Joe Biden recently nominated prominent Russia hawk Victoria Nuland to the position of Acting Deputy Secretary of State. Nuland is the wife of neoconservative extraordinaire Robert Kagan and with this new position Nuland is second in command to Secretary of State Antony Blinken in the State Department.
Connor Echols at The Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft wrote the following about this development:
Nuland’s appointment will be a boon for Russia hawks who want to turn up the heat on the Kremlin. But, for those who favor a negotiated end to the conflict in Ukraine, a promotion for the notoriously “undiplomatic diplomat” will be a bitter pill.
A few quick reminders are in order. When Nuland was serving in the Obama administration, she had a now-infamous leaked call with the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. As the Maidan Uprising roiled the country, the pair of American diplomats discussed conversations with opposition leaders, and Nuland expressed support for putting Arseniy Yatseniuk into power. (Yatseniuk would become prime minister later that month, after Russia-friendly former President Viktor Yanukovych fled the country.) At one memorable point in the call, Nuland said “Fu–k the EU” in response to Europe’s softer stance on the protests.
The controversy surrounding the call — and larger implications of U.S. involvement in the ouster of Yanukovych — kicked up tensions with Russia and contributed to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to seize Crimea and support an insurgency in eastern Ukraine. Her handing out food to demonstrators on the ground in Kyiv probably didn’t help either. Nuland, along with State Department sanctions czar Daniel Fried, then led the effort to punish Putin through sanctions. Another official at State reportedly asked Fried if “the Russians realize that the two hardest-line people in the entire U.S. government are now in a position to go after them?”
Nuland was the main architect of the Euromaidan coup of 2014 that saw then-President Viktor Yanukovych deposed and replaced with a more Western-friendly government.
In a similar vein, the Senate Armed Services Committee recently voted to confirm Biden’s appointment of General Charles Q. Brown Jr as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, thereby replacing Mark Milley.
Brown is a major China hawk. He has called for more US bases to be established in the region and heightened efforts to supply Taiwan with arms during his hearing in front of the Senate Arms Services Committee earlier in July.
Overall, the Biden regime is no fan of peace. Realists, restrainers, and non-interventionists must do everything possible to demonstrate how there’s a pro-war uniparty that wants to continue wars perpetually to the detriment of the Historic American Nation.
It’s up to this pro-peace cohort to build up professionals, who will later take on positions of power, to reshape political discourse and change the current set of foreign policies. If not, America is destined to be mired in foreign conflict in perpetuity.
