The Democrats’ Now-Retracted Pro-Diplomacy Letter Discredits Their Proxy War Policy
There’s now no doubt that the aforesaid proxy war isn’t truly as popular with the ruling Democrat elite as was previously thought, the prior perception of which has now been exposed as the product of yet another psy-op, but those members of the American elite at large who are colluding with Kiev to meddle in the midterms – which includes Biden, Congressman Adam Kinzinger, neoconservative lobbyist Ivana Stradner, and others – obviously pressured this influential faction to retract its statement.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus withdrew their letter to Biden that called for a diplomatic solution to the Ukrainian Conflict, which is essentially a US-led NATO proxy war on Russia through that former Soviet Republic at this point. Its Chair claimed that this statement was drafted several months ago, was released by staff without vetting, and unintentionally created the perception that their party is aligned with those Republicans who suggested reducing aid to that crumbling country after the midterms.
This scandal discredited the Democrats’ proxy war policy because it showed that an influential faction within that party has been against this stance since the summer despite publicly claiming otherwise. Put another way, they’ve blatantly lied to the American people this whole time, though to be fair, they also always voted in support of giving Ukraine tens of billions of dollars of taxpayer funds. In any case, the point is that even the US’ proxy war on Russia through Ukraine isn’t fully supported by the Democrats.
Granted, those who signed the now-retracted letter have since claimed that they no longer believe in a diplomatic solution to the conflict, but it’s important for voters to realize that those Democrats lied to them over the past few months. It also proves that the party’s latest psy-op blaming Republicans for seemingly inevitable reductions to Ukrainian aid due to their declining unipolar hegemon’s limited military-industrial capacity to keep up the pace and scale of military support is disingenuous.
Whoever released that letter was probably motivated by the desire to expose this charade, which can contribute to the opposition obtaining an even greater landslide than expected during next month’s midterms. It’s also possible, however, that they thought that showing this influential Democrat faction’s opposition to the US’ proxy war on Russia might appeal to those same voters and thus help cushion the blow that they’re bracing themselves to receive during the upcoming elections.
Nevertheless, there’s now no doubt that the aforesaid proxy war isn’t truly as popular with the ruling Democrat elite as was previously thought, the prior perception of which has now been exposed as the product of yet another psy-op. Those members of the American elite at large who are colluding with Kiev to meddle in the midterms – which includes Biden, Congressman Adam Kinzinger, neoconservative lobbyist Ivana Stradner, and others – obviously pressured the Caucus to retract its statement.
The reason behind their presumed intervention is obvious and it’s that the Democrats’ pro-diplomacy letter shattered the artificially manufactured and information warfare-driven illusion that the elite is unanimously in support of this proxy war that Biden himself recently fearmongered had pushed the world to the brink of Armageddon. By drawing attention to intra-party rifts over this dangerous policy, this letter suggested (whether intentionally or not) that total war isn’t the only option available.
Rather, former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger’s proposal for a pragmatic diplomatic solution to the conflict is clearly gaining traction in the halls of power, even if those who tacitly endorse it decided to keep their true beliefs hidden from the American people. With this in mind, it’s clear that Republicans aren’t the only ones who might support reducing US aid to Ukraine after the midterms since an influential Democrat faction was indirectly flirting with this too.
Of course, they’ve since publicly claimed that they don’t want to be associated with that possibility, but their words shouldn’t be taken at face value considering the fact that those who signed the now-retracted letter lied about their approach over the past few months. More voters will obviously realize that they’ve been hoodwinked, which many probably already suspected but were smeared as “conspiracy theorists” for suggesting, thus likely contributing to an even greater Republican landslide.
