Russia will be completely shut down if it strikes NATO – Joe Biden dares

According to US President Joe Biden, the US will only become fully involved in the fight against Russia and Putin’s regime if he strikes NATO.

Despite claiming in March that Putin “cannot remain in office,” US Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday, June 1 that the US will not press for Putin’s ouster from power.

Biden made the remarks in a New York Times op-ed in which he outlined what his government will and will not do in Ukraine.

“We do not seek a war between NATO and Russia,” Biden wrote. “As much as I disagree with Mr. Putin, and find his actions an outrage, the United States will not try to bring about his ouster in Moscow.”

“So long as the United States or our allies are not attacked, we will not be directly engaged in this conflict, either by sending American troops to fight in Ukraine or by attacking Russian forces,” he added.

Back in March, White House officials had to walk back Biden’s call for Putin’s removal saying Biden’s point was that Putin “cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region,” adding that he was not pushing for “regime change.”

In recent months, White House officials have walked back the president’s comments on Putin’s regime, his claim that U.S. troops would be deploying to Ukraine, and his statement that the U.S. military would intervene if China invaded Taiwan.
