After meeting with Ukraine's president in a closed door and highly secret meeting Sunday afternoon, US Secretaries of Defense and State met Monday with NATO leaders with very limited press coverage. The first press comment about the two Biden Cabinet members with NATO was they told NATO that Russia must be disarmed. That piece of news was quickly squashed.
Editorial comment: The Biden Administration encouraged the war between Russia and Ukraine then rallied Western Europe to send aid to Ukraine to keep it in the war against a superior military force and now, the stage is being set (we are being groomed, brain-washed by the Administration's lap dog, the mainstream media) for the American public to approve US military intervention in the name of defending NATO. The oldest political stunt in the "book" is for a nation's leader to find a way to go to war when his domestic approval rating is going down the toilet and/or he has legal problems. Joe Biden has both.
