While he didn’t demand that US troops fight Russia on Ukraine’s behalf like a decontextualized viral video misleadingly implies, he did indeed fearmonger that they’ll inevitably have to fight that country on NATO’s behalf if Kiev ultimately loses. Zelensky deliberately didn’t clarify that Russia “enter[ing] Baltic states, NATO member states” is a far-fetched scenario, instead confidently predicting as a matter of supposedly undebatable fact that this sequence of events is guaranteed to unfold if he doesn’t get billions more from US taxpayers pronto.
The Mainstream Media (MSM) is once again manipulating Western perceptions about the NATO-Russian proxy war in Ukraine by twisting their fact-check of a scandalous statement from Zelensky to falsely claim that he never fearmongered about US troops getting killed in a large-scale European war. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (MTG) referenced a decontextualized video going viral on social media that misleadingly implies that Zelensky demanded US troops fight Russia on Ukraine’s behalf during her speech at CPAC.
Her faux pas was immediately picked up on by the MSM, which subsequently spin that foreign leader’s decontextualized words in their twisted fact-check to falsely claim that he didn’t fearmonger about any such scenario whatever at all. The Associated Press’ fact-check of this viral video prior to MTG’s remarks inadvertently discredits its fellow MSM counterparts’ efforts to manipulate Western perceptions in such a way. Here’s the full context of Zelensky’s scandalous words according to their report:
“The U.S. is never going to give up on the NATO member states. If it happens so that Ukraine, due to various opinions and weakening, depleting of assistance, loses, Russia is going to enter Baltic states, NATO member states, and then the U.S. will have to send their sons and daughters exactly the same way as we are sending their sons and daughters to war. And they will have to fight. Because it’s NATO that we’re talking about, and they will be dying, god forbid, because it’s a horrible thing.”
As can clearly be seen, while he didn’t demand that US troops fight Russia on Ukraine’s behalf, he did indeed fearmonger that they’ll inevitably have to fight that country on NATO’s behalf if Kiev ultimately loses. Zelensky deliberately didn’t clarify that Russia “enter[ing] Baltic states, NATO member states” is a far-fetched scenario, instead confidently predicting as a matter of supposedly undebatable fact that this sequence of events is guaranteed to unfold if he doesn’t get billions more from US taxpayers pronto.
In early January, immediately prior to the “official narrative” about the Ukrainian Conflict decisively shifting after American and Polish authorities warned that Kiev’s loss in this conflict can no longer be ruled out, top Ukrainian and former US officials panicked that the $100 billion given to it wasn’t enough. This was followed in mid-February by the NATO chief declaring that his bloc is in a so-called “race of logistics”/“war of attrition” with Russia, all of which preceded Zelensky’s fearmongering above.
Zelensky heard the rising discontent over the US funding his slaughter of the Ukrainian people, war mongers are well into the minority, unfortunate that minority is in congress. With the billions pouring in seems he is still managing to lose…badly. But look at the bright side he moved out him mum and dad they have a really nice crib in Israel. He also fired 2 or 3 officials skimming for themselves, widely announced on MSM, but none since.
Meanwhile back in Ohio
you picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel.
Zelensky has proven to be a poor administrator of our money.
He should be taken out of the war equation.
Of course, joe counts on Zelensky’s incompetence so as to skim more of our money off the top.
So, under joe, this will continue no matter how bad it is.
joe sends him plenty because it ends up in joe’s pocket, too.
We will have to wait til joe dies, or leaves office or, Zelensky gets enough and leaves for a nice job on a few boards of directors and/or professorial positions.
cut back by 100% on the United Nations make them take care of their own people and their own problems we can aid them after a Disaster like we always do
