Joe Biden’s Afghanistan 2.0

Joe Biden is promoting terrorism in Ukraine, which is a recipe for disaster not only for Ukraine but also Europe. Ironically, the Europeans are so caught up in the America-contrived western propaganda that they fail to understand what the future bodes for them – not one Charlie Hebdo shooting but thousands will follow

The ghost of the disgrace in Afghanistan won’t let go of US President Joe Biden (JoBi). He is turning Western Ukraine into a second Afghanistan thinking the ghost would go away. But this amounts to jumping from the fire into the frying pan. The fickleness of his policies are evident from examples like: economic war on Russia but energy supplies exempt; arm Ukraine and pump mercenaries to bog down Russian forces hoping Europe remains safe; freeze deposits by Russians in Swiss banks – tarnishing Switzerland’s reputation; hack into Russia’s space control station and sanctions to degrade Russian space programme but cooperate in orbit as Russian assets are needed.

JoBi says he is establishing a New World Order with Supremo Joe Biden heading the US Global Autocracy leading the world on a leash. But Russian Deputy Minister Sergey Ryabkov says that BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) will be fundamental in the New World Order. This would give goosebumps to JoBi who is already sleepless with the energy crisis despite making Secretary of State Antony Blinken run over to Saudi Arabia, UAE, Venezuela and be the odd man in the Meeting of Arab Foreign Ministers organised by Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in the Southern Negev desert of Israel.

Now Putin has lit another bomb under Biden’s chair with Central Bank of Russia announcing that from March 28, the Russian Ruble currency is Bound to Gold; rate is 5,000 Rubles per gram of gold bullion. In terms of Gold Bullion, has Russia wiped out about 30 per cent of the value of the US Dollar worldwide? Now Biden may have to ask Europeans and buddy boy Boris Johnson to dig for gold in addition to oil.

Adding to Biden’s woes, the NBC News poll in March 2022 found that 71 per cent of those polled, including 48 per cent of Democrats; believe America is headed in the wrong direction. Top to this, Poland that just six months ago erected a border fence to ward off Kurds and Afghans resulting in some freezing to death, is no more enamoured with the deluge of refugees coming from Ukraine; America is only accommodating few thousand refugees, dumping balance on Europe.

In January 2020, Circuit Judge Holly Meyer of Independent County Arkansas established the paternity of Hunter Biden saying DNA tests proved that presidential candidate Joe Biden is the father; instructing the Arkansas Department of Health to issue birth certificate listing Biden as the father of 29-year-old Lunden Alexis Roberts’ child, who the New York Post reported was stripper at a Washington DC club that Biden patronised. Biden, when contacted by the media refused to comment saying it is a private matter.

For some reason Biden is excessively obsessed with Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Ukraine’s President, given the periodicity of their telephonic conversation and making Zelensky address every conceivable. JoBi may not talk about it calling it a private matter but some call it the neo-Nazi link, the Nazi core in the CIA and rise of the Nazi cult.

However, if Zelensky is Biden’s puppet, Biden himself is a puppet (CIA?). Witness the teleprompter Biden uses and if he speaks outside the script, pat comes a correction from the White House – no he did not mean regime change in Russia though Putin is a “butcher”. So what does poor JoBi do having tried all the tricks at the UNSC, UNGA and ICJ? So, next on the agenda is the Special US-ASEAN meeting to push Biden’s agenda – some hope!

If America had not frozen funds in the Central Bank of Afghanistan annoying the Taliban, Biden could have asked them to transfer some of the $92 billion worth weapons left behind in the US ‘rout’. The neo-Nazis trained by CIA and MI6 in Azov would have used them better. Nevertheless, ISIS cadres are also being transferred from Iraq-Syria to Ukraine and arming them is no problem with JoBi proposing a $813 billion defence budget – 1.5 per cent increase from the 2022 submission. After all, it is the B3W and the neo-Nazis under Zelensky who are to fight the Russians, not the US and NATO

Ukraine-Russia peace negotiations can continue endlessly with Zelensky parroting Biden’s peace terms like Russia must withdraw all forces, international guarantees and the like. But JoBi has declared “we will not let Zelensky surrender” and that war in Ukraine will not be over till the last refugee has returned to Ukraine, plus blah-blah – senility or teleprompter?

In Ukraine, JoBi has launched a different B3W (Biden’s Butcher Brigade for War) – mercenaries and terrorists by the thousands in addition to tonnes of armament. Mercenaries continue to guide Zelensky in making public examples of Ukrainians who refuse to take up arms against Russians. Odessa is yet to be attacked by Russia but citizens who refuse to take up arms are being tied to trees with trousers pulled down – the same way Zelensky loved playing piano with his trousers down.

Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu said on March 29 that Russian forces are continuing their efforts to track down and eliminate soldiers of fortune and the Russian military has killed some 600 foreign mercenaries during its military operation in Ukraine, while hundreds more have fled the country. He added that the number of non-Ukrainian combatants fighting on the side of Kiev has recently been reduced via strikes launched against them with high-precision munitions, resulting in fatalities. Shoigu said the primary aim of the first stage of the military operations has been fulfilled, with “significant damage being delivered to the Ukrainian Army”, allowing focus on liberating the breakaway Donbass republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

Russia has undertaken multiple precision strikes on Ukraine bases hosting mercenaries. A Russian precision attack on the Yavoriv range in the western Lviv region in mid-March killed 180 foreign fighters. Another strike targeted a Ukrainian Special Operations Forces training center in the northern Zhytomyr region killing more than 100 Ukrainian troops and foreign fighters.

According to the Russian Defence Ministry, Ukraine has become a haven for 6,595 foreign mercenaries and terrorists from 62 states who are not subject to the rules of war, even as Ukraine has no organised reserves left, Ukrainian air force and air defence system have been almost completely destroyed and Ukrainian navy has ceased to exist. This indicates the Biden-Zelensky plan of long-term proxy war against Russia. Biden’s B3W and the concept of foreign fighters in Ukraine spell a dark future just like Afghanistan and Iraq-Syria.

In recent years, youth have been travelling abroad to join conflicts attributed to jihadist groups and movements across the world, specifically from Europe. This is an area of expertise for the CIA and MI6; examples being the establishment, training and arming of the Taliban in Pakistan and ISIS in Turkey before unleashing them in Afghanistan and Iraq-Syria respectively. Many Indians also had joined ISIS earlier with some coming back disillusioned.

To put it bluntly, Joe Biden is promoting terrorism in Ukraine, which is a recipe for disaster not only for Ukraine but also Europe. Ironically, the Europeans are so caught up in the America-contrived western propaganda that they fail to understand what the future bodes for them – not one Charlie Hebdo shooting but thousands will follow.  

The US-prompted western propaganda machinery is running full steam with narratives that Russia is half-dead already. Interestingly, some Americans have been commenting that for Indians to think that Russia is winning in Ukraine, their social media must be infested with Russian bots. For these ‘three bags full variety’ perhaps Larry C Johnson, Scott Ritter and William Blum are all Russian bots in garb of Americans.
