Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo labeled President Biden’s rapidly infamous Armageddon remark regarding the nuclear threat posed by Russia as “reckless” and perhaps one of the biggest foreign policy blunders of the last several decades on Sunday.
First, their remarks were irresponsible, and even more crucially, they illustrate one of the previous few decades’ most significant foreign policy failures. The huge policy failure was the inability to dissuade Vladimir Putin in the same manner that the Trump administration did for four years, Pompeo told “Fox News Sunday” presenter Shannon Bream.
Pompeo continued, when you hear the president talking about Armageddon as a simple idea at a fundraiser, it is a horrible danger to the American people if he feels that he should be out talking to us seriously.
Speaking at a Democratic fundraising gathering on Thursday evening, Biden swerved into a discussion of Ukraine, stating that Putin is not kidding when he discusses the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons.
Armageddon has not been discussed since the Kennedy administration and the Cuban Missile Crisis, he continued. Pompeo claimed that the threat posed by Vladimir Putin is serious because his military is considerably “underperforming.”
As the White House tried to clarify the president’s off-the-cuff remarks, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre did not immediately answer a query on Friday on whether President Biden intended to invoke Armageddon.
Pompeo stated that he has a hunch that the Ukrainians had something to do with it, but we’ll have to wait and see. We are sure that this is humiliating for Vladimir Putin, added Pompeo. Pompeo said it was particularly humiliating because he constructed this bridge and recalled seeing photographs of him driving across it. It was one of Russia and Putin’s major accomplishments. It was erected in 2018, so it’s practically spanking new, and to see it engulfed in flames while the rest of the supply lines out of Crimea and into southern Ukraine are in jeopardy is a game-changer on the ground in Ukraine. According to Trey’s report from this morning, the Ukrainians are doing remarkable work freeing town after town while the Russian military is failing miserably.
Pompeo said that Joe Biden is responsible for the World’s Energy Crisis. He claims Joe Biden wants to run the world on “sunshine and windmills.” Pompeo said that the U.S. has the capacity for self-help and that we can help our own country and other countries. He stated that we need to put the American people first. He said the Biden administration is cozying up to the Iranians, and the deal they are trying to do is crazy and is costing millions of dollars. He believes the U.S. will be better served with strong security partners that the ESG has to go. He also stated that America has one of the most significant oil reserves in the world and that we don’t need to beg other countries to release more gas.
