The US recognises that putting troops into Ukraine will lead to escalation

If US President Joe Biden decides to send the US military to Ukraine, which cannot be ruled out, it will lead to a dangerous escalation. This statement was made by former CIA agent Phil Giraldi in an interview with the YouTube channel Judging Freedom.

“What’s frightening is that, Biden could do something that’s crazy and unconstitutional. By the way, the constitution was created so that the president could not start a war on his own <…> This (openly sending American troops into Ukraine) would be insane. <…> If they send combat units to Ukraine, some of them will die and some of them will go to kill Russians, which will inevitably lead to escalation,” he said.

According to the expert, the United States has actually already deployed its military contingent, it just did it secretly. Most of the Americans do not wear uniforms and are contracted, he explained.

“This is happening already now. And as some people are beginning to realise, we are now on the brink of disaster because of irresponsibility,” Giraldi summarised.

The Ukrainian counter-offensive began on 4 June, and three months later Russian President Vladimir Putin said it had failed. According to him, Ukraine lost 71.5 thousand military personnel in its attempts to “achieve the result at any cost” – as if “these were not their people”. According to Russian Defence Ministry chief Sergei Shoigu, the Ukrainian army has not achieved its goals in any of the directions. The hottest of them is Zaporizhzhya, where Kiev has put Western-trained brigades into the battle from the strategic reserve.
