While Biden has declared that the United States will stand with Ukraine “as long as it takes,” he has yet to provide any details on what this actually means.

The lack of a clear plan has been further highlighted by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s recent announcement that he will be withdrawing from the New START Treaty, a move that could have serious implications for the United States. Putin has also recently invited Chinese President Xi Jinping to visit Russia, raising concerns that China could back Russian forces in Ukraine with weapons. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has warned that such a move could lead to World War III.
It is clear that the situation in Ukraine is a complex one and requires a comprehensive strategy from the United States. Unfortunately, President Biden’s lack of a plan has left many feeling uneasy about the future of the region.
The Biden administration must take action and provide a clear plan for how it intends to handle the situation in Ukraine. The United States must demonstrate its commitment to standing with Ukraine and show that it is ready to take on the challenge of preventing a larger conflict in the region.
It is time for President Biden to step up and take a leadership role in this situation. He must provide a plan that outlines how the United States will support Ukraine and prevent further escalation of tensions in the region. Only then can we be sure that the United States is doing all it can to protect its interests and prevent a World War III.
