‘A preview of a possible world of tyranny’: U.S. Def Sec on Putin’s war

U.S. Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said failure to help Ukraine secure its own future could lead to a “world of tyranny and turmoil”, in a speech on Saturday that sought to lay out the stakes in the war for the international community. Austin's remarks, delivered at a security forum in Canada, were some of his most powerful to date on Russia's invasion which has lasted for nearly nine months already.

…Mr Austin also said that “Russia's invasion offers a preview of a possible world of tyranny and turmoil, turmoil that none of us want to live in,” adding that Russia’s irresponsible nuclear saber rattling, if not reacted to, risks encouraging other dictators. “Putin's fellow autocrats are watching. And they could well conclude that getting nuclear weapons would give them a hunting license of their own. And that could drive a dangerous spiral of nuclear proliferation,” Austin said.

As Mr Austin said, the danger is already apparent. “Now the ripples of Russia's invasion have traveled far, far beyond Europe,” said the U.S. Defence Secretary. “Beijing, like Moscow, seeks a world where might makes right. Where disputes are resolved by force and where autocrats can stamp out the flame of freedom.”

Very strong words. Putin fluffers on the right just got taken to the political woodshed.

'We Are Cannon Fodder': Russian Conscripts Voice Their Fury

Two signers of Jayapal's appeasement letter are backing away from it

Pocan and Jacobs:

https://twitter.com/RepSaraJacobs/status/1584923231882035200?s=20&t=aCZb1MkhTL_0STGHOzvamQ

To make matters even worse, Jayapal incredibly (or is it appallingly) held this event at the very moment Speaker Pelosi was at a conference in Zagreb on Ukraine and Crimea answering questions about Kevin McCarthy’s “blank check” quote and reaffirming US commitment to Ukraine. This is either terribly inept or shockingly disloyal, take your pick.

Jayapal apparently has designs on a leadership position post-Midterm. Her ambitions are going up in flames—or at least they should be.

Looks like Jayapal et al have felt the heat from today's Neville Chamberlain moment

Walk it back, folks:
