Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX) appeared for a segment on CNN’s “State of the Union” and announced that the United States is effectively engaged in a “new cold war” with Russia.
When asked by anchor Jake Tapper “Do you think we are in a new cold war with Russia?” Representative McCaul’s response was loud and clear.
Representative McCaul said, “I do. I do because I think Putin again smells weakness here. He knows that if he’s ever going to invade Ukraine, now is the time. I hope he doesn’t make that miscalculation, but the fact is, if he does invade Ukraine, what is the United States, what is our commander in chief prepared to do to stop it? I’m not seeing a lot of details or action that could deter him from that critical step. This would be the largest invasion in Europe since World War II. That’s how big of a deal this is.”
President Joe Biden has projected nothing but weakness since being sworn into office nearly one year ago.
Vladimir Putin knows he has nothing to fear from President Biden and that is why we have found ourselves in cold war 2.0.
Of course, this is horrible news for Ukrainians who are looking at the very real prospect of a Russian invasion. The United States isn’t going to get into an armed confrontation with Russia and we now have nothing to deter Russia with, thanks to the President’s weakness.
