The war in Ukraine has been raging for almost two years. But this blunder might have escalated the war to a new level.
And Joe Biden may start World War III with this awful decision.
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky hasn’t been shy about asking for financial and military aid to his country during it’s war with Russia.
In fact, President Zelensky has been able to funnel in over $75 billion from the United States, according to the Council on Foreign Relations.
And Biden has been quick to meet the needs of Zelensky – while ignoring the multitude of crises the U.S. faces – this time gifting something he refused to in the past.
According to The Post Millennial, “A U.S. official announced on Thursday that the Biden administration has approved the sending of American F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine from Denmark and the Netherlands.”
“According to Reuters, the US gave official assurances to Denmark and the Netherlands that an expedited approval of transfer requests for F-16 jets to go to Ukraine would be given as soon as pilots were trained.”

But just last year, President Biden viewed the sending of U.S. fighter jets as a dangerous move.
“The idea that we’re going to send in offensive equipment and have planes and tanks and trains going in with American pilots and American crews – just understand, don’t kid yourself, no matter what y’all say, that’s called World War III,” the President said.
And as recent as January, the President said “no” when asked if he would send Ukraine, American F-16 jets.
Russia has even stated that moves like sending military equipment to Ukraine would be considered escalation by the United States.
That threat apparently didn’t do anything to deter Biden from giving Zelensky offensive resources.
In a surprise to no one, the Ukrainian President’s constant begging is what likely pressured President Biden to give in to his requests.
“Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, however, has continued to insist that the planes be given, and as with almost all that Zelensky has asked for Biden relented,” said The Post Millennial.
It’s yet to be seen how Russia responds to this latest “charitable” action by the U.S.
Domestically, however, the more money and resources Joe Biden sends to Ukraine, the more Americans feel as though they’re being viewed as a second priority.
With the recent wildfires in Maui, Hawaii, the President seemed to have turned a blind eye to the crisis, instead asking Congress to send over $20 billion to his pal Zelensky.
And now that Russia is likely angered by the U.S. sending their planes to Ukraine, American citizens now have to worry about a potential war.
