How much is America prepared for war against Russia? This prepared. If the Obama administration left Iraq’s military stranded against ISIS, which could’ve been eliminated yesterday if they really wanted to, it would only make sense that they will do the same with Ukraine regardless of what anyone in the White House says. Nuclear war is always a bit more risky than islamic terrorist groups.
Straight out of the White House:
The United States is not ready to prosecute a war over Ukraine, but could partner with its NATO allies to help Kiev defend itself against Russia, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Tuesday.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earnest explained the United States will assist Kiev in its struggle against Russian violations of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
“The United States is not prepared to go to war over Ukraine. But, at the same time, there may be an opportunity for the United States and our NATO partners to help them confront the threat that they’re facing from Russia.”
When asked if the White House will tell Kiev to go solve its own problems, just as it recently told Iraqi leaders, Earnest said the situations are much different given that Iraq is dealing with a terrorist organization while Kiev is being menaced by a large nation-state on its border.
“I guess one thing that’s true in Iraq that is also true in Ukraine is that the United States is standing by our Ukrainian partners.”
US President Barack Obama, according to Earnest, will likely discuss the crisis in Ukraine when he travels to Europe to attend the G7 meetings next week.
