Biden’s blunder

AP reports:

Meanwhile, the president of Ukraine has rebuked Joe Biden for a gaffe which was described as an “invitation for Putin to invade”.

Volodymyr Zelensky warned against distinguishing between a small or large Russian attack on his country as he criticised the for saying a “minor incursion” may not trigger a Nato response.

“We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations,” Zelesnky said on Thursday.

“Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones. I say as the President of a great power.”

At a White House press conference on Wednesday, Biden said he now believed that will “move in” on Ukraine, and reiterated warnings that such an attack would have “disastrous” consequences for Russia.

But he added: “It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion, and we [in Nato] end up fighting about what we should do, not do.”

Biden basically said that if the invasion is “minor” then the consequences won’t be as severe. A massive blunder from a President was meant to be a foreign policy expert.
