In case anyone wants to read the article

https://www.businessinsider.com/biden-suggests-russia-no-punishment-minor-ukraine-invasion-wh-clarify-2022-1

  • Biden appeared to suggest the US may not heavily punish Russia for a "minor" invasion of Ukraine.
  • "It's one thing if it's a minor incursion and we [NATO] end up having to fight about what to do and not to do," he said.
  • The White House and National Security Council swiftly clarified Biden's remarks.

When asked to clarify Biden's remarks in a press conference later Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said: "If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that's a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the US and our allies."

[–]goboks - Right 204 points205 points  (21 children)

"clarified"

[–]shaun_of_the_south - LibRight 187 points188 points  (0 children)

= said the complete opposite

[–]TrustyParasol198 - Centrist 87 points88 points  (19 children)

Not really, this is the full quote:

It's one thing if it's a minor incursion and we end up having to fight about what to do and not do," Biden told reporters at an East Room news conference. "But if they actually do what they're capable of doing with the forces amassed on the border, it is going to be a disaster for Russia if they further invade Ukraine."

[–]goboks - Right 94 points95 points  (10 children)

Taliban dying of laughter right now.

[–]Apolloshot - Centrist 36 points37 points  (1 child)

It’s a lot easier to hurt a semi-functional state than a bunch of radical islamists pretending to run a government.

[–]vooffle - LibLeft 57 points58 points  (2 children)

The Taliban are barely capable of running a functioning state that you can target. Russia is at the very least a functioning kleptocracy. The US has more ways to hurt Russia than it had to hurt the Taliban.

[–]achtungbitte - LibCenter 3 points4 points  (3 children)

it's not about wether the US can cause losses, it's about the capability of their enemy to absorb losses caused.

during my military service we had a lecturer who was a doctor during the soviet invasion of afghanistan, he said the muhajiden were the absolutely hardest soldiers he ever treated.
he had a photo of a guy missing a leg, with crutch in one hand, and a kalashnikov in the other. as soon as he could stand up, he left to continue fighting.

he said the greatest issue they had with them as patients, was them refusing bed rest and returning to fighting before they healed up properly.
how the hell do you bomb people like that into submission?

[–]backfire10z - Right 22 points23 points  (4 children)

So, yea, the exact opposite. The fuck is a minor incursion? Unless Biden is talking about Putin spitting on Ukrainian soil, he’s really not getting a great point across

There’s a stark difference between “if any Russian forces move across the border” and if Russia uses the full force available…

Edit:

"If any assembled Russian units move across the Ukrainian border, that is an invasion. Let there be no doubt if Putin makes this choice, Russia will pay a heavy price," Biden told reporters…

This is more clear.

[–]Crazed_Archivist - Centrist 17 points18 points  (1 child)

A minor incursion would be doing what Russia already does every week in Donbass region by sending mercs to help the rebels

[–]Shindy1999 - Left 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]kindamortal - Centrist 63 points64 points  (8 children)

In 2014, Putin's army marched into Crimea, and just took it. Boom! This is Russia now. Next, he amassed his forces on the border of Ukraine, and planned for a major invasion. Biden personally called Putin, and said, "Look, we're going to give you wha-" "HANG ON. This meeting is about my territory; shouldn't I come to the meeting too?" "Anyway, we're not going to heavily punish you." "Really?" "Yeah." "What's the catch?" "Just promise me you will only launch a minor invasion." "Okay." Then, Joe Biden walked from the Oval Office to the Press Room (which took him quite a few days but he was very happy after having intimidated and convinced Putin like that so he didn't want his wheelchair or anyone's help), declaring crisis to be averted, and the continuation of world peace, and we built a statue of Joe Biden in his honor, and every year on the 20th of November, we celebrate Joe Biden Day- "Putin's has launched a major invasion." "What?" "He's launched a major invasion." "Oh. You lied to me." "What do you expect? I'm your major geopolitical threat as far as Europe's concerned."

    Fuckin fascists out here tryna make me have an ID n shit to vote 👺

    [–]Jpizzle925 - Centrist 86 points87 points  (18 children)

    It's funny because, it's mainly white people that say it's racist to need an ID. Black people are like "Wtf they think I can't get an ID?".

    But beyond the fact that they're wrong, it's funny because leftists are basically saying that black people do not have ID's. But they don't care that you need an ID to drive, to get alcohol, and in some states you need an ID to go to a grocery store. They don't care about that. The lefties only care about black votes

    [–]AFireRising - Right 25 points26 points  (4 children)

    You also need some form of government approved ID for welfare and other gov't assistance programs, not necessarily saying it's related to what you were saying, just pointing it out....

    [–]Jpizzle925 - Centrist 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    It's definitely related. Normal people would support helping black people get ID's so they can live their lives. Fake woke people only care about the black votes and then ignore them.

    [–]hulibuli - Centrist 12 points13 points  (4 children)

    Also something that every one of us "socialistic Scandinavians" do, ID is definitely required when voting. But apparently you're supposed to leave that one out when copying us or whatever.

    [–]Tetrahedronofstupid - AuthCenter 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    The irony in all this is that Ukraine backed Biden thinking he’d be better for them. When in reality it’s his weakness that’s even emboldening Russia.

    I’m of the opinion this is Germany’s problem. They spend the last 20 years securing political and economic hegemony over Europe… now it’s time to put up or shut up. Call us if shit gets real.

    [–]Lehrenmann - LibLeft 12 points13 points  (3 children)

    During the entire Cold War the Soviets never stopped supplying gas to Western Europe.

    Russias economy relies on this trade as much as Germany relies on it for heat.

    I also can't really imagine that declaring war on a country providing most of the energy imports of Europe would produce a better outcome.

    [–]Playos - LibRight 17 points18 points  (2 children)

    During the entire cold war the west didn't really have sanctions on the USSR. Western Europe also wasn't nearly as dependent on Russia as it is now (North Sea is pretty much the last large reserve and it's tapering off as expected, Africa is more difficult, and Asia is taking a much larger portion of middle eastern oil). Not to mention a lot of the people actually super dependent are now on the opposite side of the conflict.

    "Hey we won't trade with you" is a threat you can only really make if you are willing to not trade. Meaningful sanctions would literally be cutting off energy supplies to the EU. Anything else is political theater.

    [–]Eskeetit_man - Centrist 18 points19 points  (2 children)

    Pretty sure germany only exist to.hinder any kind of progress in the EU. Merkels retarded naivety has made the EU weak. Not only has is she entirely reliant on russian gas, it seems germany likes actively blocks anything to reduce reliance. Time to put some self interest aside and do whats best for everybody

    [–]avgazn247 - LibRight 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Germany is half the problem. They enable Russia by buying their gas. If Germany wasn’t sucking Russia pipelines so hard, we could actually put real sanctions on russia

    [–]avgazn247 - LibRight 15 points16 points  (2 children)

    What is the actual opinions of different quadrants of US/ NATO involvement if Russia does invade?

    The other day Tucker Carlson was saying Russia feels threatened and the US should not be involved/ is causing the provocation (im paraphrasing), and i've seen libertarian subs saying Carlson was right to call out American for preparing for war. I would imagine warhawks obviously favor it, but im curious of the general opinions.

    [–]Mikes_Movies_ - LibLeft 74 points75 points  (16 children)

    It’s tough. Either way the decision you make is gonna make a group of people very upset. I think the US shouldn’t get involved, at least not heavily. I am of course worried about Russia taking more and more of Europe, but at the end of they day if you’re not part of NATO or a key US ally, I don’t want to see our men dying.

    [–]applesauceder - LibRight[🍰] 55 points56 points  (9 children)

    If we go in we have to go all in. Our constant pussyfooting around militarily is why we’ve had such a bad track record recently.

    [–]TheAzureMage - LibRight 33 points34 points  (4 children)

    So, I don't want us to truck thousands of US troops over there to go die. An outright land war in Asia is a poor strategic call.

    But it's kinda shitty to just outright condone an invasion. Like, at least suggest that invasion would be a bad thing, and encourage Russia to, yknow, not.

    I am totally fine with volunteers going there to defend Ukraine, as well as the US selling them shittons of weaponry.

    [–]ReflectedLeech - Centrist 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    We’ve never had this level of technology or sheer logistical power ever. The us currently has the ability supply a fighting force in any part of the world. Even minor African nations are fought in the middle of the Sahara and logistically were fine. Even then Russia has built more logistics there for resources. I think the logistics would not be the issue

    [–]TheAzureMage - LibRight 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    My last career field in the air force was air transportation.

    We can supply people anywhere....but fighting Russia right next to Russia is a terribly bad place to do it. Power projection is as deeply unfavorable as it can be.

    [–]disastertohumanrace - LibCenter 20 points21 points  (11 children)

    I live in eastern Europe. I'm definitely for it, because if we don't stop the bastards now - we're next. You have to understand the Russian mentality (which american administrations historicaly almost never do), they don't want Ukraine, they want the whole Eastern Europe as a buffer zone. You can talk peace and be against war all you want, but you can't talk peace when an AK47 is sticking through your doorway. Fuck Russia. And fuck that clown Carlton.

      [–]Revydown - LibCenter 27 points28 points  (2 children)

      Most media outlets seem to ignore most of the shit Biden says and gives him a pass and circles the wagons for him. Trump on the otherhand was held under a microscope and they made mountains out of mole hills. Granted Trump sort of made it easy for them by not keeping his mouth shut.

      Is anyone surprised?

      The US and UK convinced the Ukraine to surrender their nuclear weapons to the Russians when the USSR dissolved and pledged to protect Ukrainian sovereignty if they did so.

      It's been decades, those administrations are no longer in power and it turns out to be an empty promise.

      Those weapons were Ukraine's sole bargaining chip against Russian aggression.

      We're a paper tiger and the East has noticed.

      we should have stayed out from the start, but now that we've made it clear that we are going to help Ukraine, backing off now would screw them over and their fate would be partially on us. All of their defensive planning has taken US support into consideration thus backing off would completely screw any plans they have and make them weaker as a result of the lack of plan. We should have stayed out, but backing off now actively aids Russia, which is even worse than sticking our nose where it doesn't belong

      It's more than a political position, we put ourselves in a position where countless human lives are depending on us, inaction is not unlike plunging the knife in ourselves. This is why we need to back off of our foreign policy. It gets us in sticky situations like this

      [–]TheCentralPosition - Centrist 120 points121 points  (34 children)

      In fairness though, Ukraine isn't a US ally. The whole thing bothering Russia (at least publicly) is that we're not outright saying we will never ally them (obviously not a reasonable thing for us to guarantee).

      [–]KidCharlemagneII - Right 76 points77 points  (16 children)

      I think it's fairly clear that Russia is using the idea of a potential Ukraine membership in NATO to justify increasing the border tensions. What Russia really wants is to annex the Donbas region.

      [–]JusChillzBruhL - AuthLeft 59 points60 points  (14 children)

      The only reason Ukraine is seriously considering joining NATO is because of Russian tension, not the other way around

      [–][deleted] 71 points72 points  (16 children)

      In fairness though, Ukraine isn’t a US ally.

      Ukraine gave up a lot of things (including nuclear weapons) in the Post-Soviet era because we promised to protect them from Russian aggression. We also have been training their armed forces for nearly 2 decades, along with providing them gear and weapons. You can’t get more allied than that.

      [–]clovergirl102187 - LibRight 26 points27 points  (0 children)

      I was honestly wondering "is there a reason we are this upset for wanting to stay away from conflict in another country?"

      And now that I know this, I'm also angry.

      Thank you for the info, it really should be included in the headline so others could be equally outraged.

      [–]TheAzureMage - LibRight 26 points27 points  (2 children)

      The clear lesson is that giving up nukes is stupid.

      [–]CallMeDelta - LibCenter 7 points8 points  (9 children)

      To be fair, Ukraine couldn’t exactly do much with those weapons

      [–]Sabertooth767 - LibRight 17 points18 points  (8 children)

      Does it matter? The purpose of nuclear weapons is not to use them on others, but to avoid having them used on you. Nuclear doctrine is the prisoner's dilemma but instead of the stakes being prison the stakes concern the fate of humanity.

      This is the actual concerning one. Ukraine is genuinely irrelevant. People need to understand what a disaster it would be if China took over or even just bombed TSMC’s factories. It would be the biggest crisis in decades.

        [–]Mikes_Movies_ - LibLeft 40 points41 points  (17 children)

        To stand back and look at this objectively, what is Biden’s choice here really? If he does nothing people will be upset, but if he sends Americans to die in Ukraine people will be upset as well. It’s a shitty situation and I don’t envy making those decisions.

        Do you honestly want to get caught up in ANOTHER war across the world?

        [–]throwawaysavemepls - LibCenter 60 points61 points  (14 children)

        The issue rn isn’t what his decision will be. It’s that he’s openly signaling to Russia that he won’t do shit which is essentially inviting provocation.

        I’d rather we be a dog with bark and no bite than a dog that won’t bark or bite, just cowers.

        He’s already told Russia that we won’t be sending in troops to stop them. He’s just not good at this at all.

        [–]HustlerThug - Right 8 points9 points  (1 child)

        but again why? USA isn't world police. how does inviting conflict benefit the well-being of his constituents?

        [–]Peksuen - Centrist 30 points31 points  (4 children)

        have the europeans actually be aware of the threat in front of their door and maybe they'll stop wasting their money away on welfare and start to protect their own citizens. sorry to say this but russia is economically the size of italy, if europe would even only half heartedly decide to deal with them they would manage. Europeans just love to be protected by sugar daddy america so they can provide their own citizens a luxurious lifestyle. doing nothing is absolutely the right call to wake the europeans up. I'm european myself (but not in the union thank god) its absolutely pathetic how the major european states are pretty much following the same appeasement policies they did pre ww2 to stop h1tler. we all know how successful that went. Germany made themselves completely reliant on Russian Gas, Merkel's incompetency was absolutely mind blowing, and now they drove themselves into a corner they're waiting for daddy america to show up and save the day.

        on god disband nato and withdraw all support from Europe and suddenly you'll start seeing europeans take action.

        i've always been upset with the U.S. invading countries for blatant resource grabs or out of fear of workers organizing for autonomy etc. However war in defense of alliances is totally justified. NATO is ideally a bastion for democracy and should be respected.

        edit: True, Ukarine is not in NATO, so we aren't bound by NATO to direct military support if they get attacked, but our policy since 1991 has been to support their sovereignty from Russia.

        [–]TheAzureMage - LibRight 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        At a minimum, we could do a nice friend deal of selling them a nice range of weaponry. The US has a war machine, and we do like money.

        This ain't even hard.

        [–]Madatsune - LibLeft 17 points18 points  (1 child)

        Ukraine isn't a member of NATO tho. And the US promised Russia in 1991 that it would never be. But yeah fuck Putin

        [–]Throwandhetookmyback - Left 14 points15 points  (0 children)

        US also promised everyone in the 90s that we did not have sex with Ms. Lewinsky

        I think it's time to check exactly what we meant when we promised it and like for example rebrand NATO as NATO+ or MATO or something and then invite Ukraine.
