Biden foreign policy pushing world to nuclear war: Tulsi Gabbard
Former US lawmaker Tulsi Gabbard criticizes Joe Biden's warmongering policies in Ukraine, accusing him of pushing the world to nuclear war.
Former US congressional representative and political commentator Tulsi Gabbard has criticized US President Joe Biden over his hawkish foreign policy, which she said has pushed the world toward a nuclear war.
During a meeting at a university in Colorado, Gabbard said, "We are faced with the reality. Now, President Biden's actions and policies have pushed us to the brink of nuclear war."
The ex-Democrat Hawaiian lawmaker warned against US military support for the Ukrainian army as she underlined that, "This is an existential crisis, not only for us here but the world. This proxy war against Russia using the Ukrainian people’s lives continues to escalate."
Gabbard further added that the US President and his administration are "far removed from the reality" as they speak of a possible Nuclear war and World War III as a normal situation, disregarding the dangers and risks of such a scenario.
The ex-lawmaker also criticized the Biden administration for being dishonest with the American public as they overlook the cost and consequences of delivering nuclear weapons to Ukraine. She also explained that such a move would "only increase the likelihood" of direct confrontation between NATO and Russia.
US expands the scope of conflict in Ukraine
On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a military campaign in Ukraine, citing national security concerns due to eastern advances and encroachment by US-led NATO forces.
Since the beginning of this operation, Western countries led by the US have been providing significant financial and military aid to Kiev. The aid initially consisted of lighter arms and munitions, which gradually escalated to include heavier artillery guns, shells, munitions, and training.
Russia has consistently warned that this Western military assistance to Ukraine will only prolong the war, expanding the number of casualties and destruction in the warzone, without preventing Moscow from achieving its security objectives.
