Blinken Promises NATO Membership For Ukraine

Yet again stringing Ukraine along with promises of a safer, more secure future, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken promised that Ukraine will become a member of NATO during a summit marking the alliance’s 75th anniversary in Brussels on Thursday.

“Ukraine will become a member of NATO. Our purpose at the summit is to help build a bridge to that membership,” Blinken told reporters.

The statement again set off alarm bells in Russia, as Ukraine becoming a member of NATO is considered by Moscow to be a red line that must not be crossed.

At a 2023 NATO summit in Vilnius, members of the alliance agreed that Ukraine can join NATO when certain conditions are met, but the timeline and clarity of those conditions are hazy at best.

This has prompted criticism from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has called upon Western nations to pull out all the stops in supporting Ukraine, even asking for a no-fly zone to be imposed over the country by NATO — which would most certainly lead to a direct confrontation with Russia and draw NATO into the war.

Blinken’s declaration has stirred the ire of many conservatives who believe in an “America First” approach to foreign policy as touted by former President Donald Trump.

Indeed, the current policy of Democrats and Washington neocons is in stark contrast with the Democratic party of just a few decades ago, which embraced a generally anti-war stance, or at least gave lip service to it during elections. Now, the Democratic party appears to have been taken over by globalist hawks bent upon creating a unipolar world with the center of power being allocated to the West, at the cost of the nation’s own vital interests.

Most Americans do not want direct war with Russia, nor do they wish to send their sons, husbands and fathers to fight and die in Europe for Ukraine. But the politicians in Washington don’t have any “skin in the game,” so it is easy for them to play a real-life game of “Risk.”

Although the pathway to NATO membership for Ukraine is unclear, several nations are still opting to create “NATO-Lite” agreements with the embattled nation to give it long-term aid in its conflict with Russia. On Wednesday, Finland became the latest nation to sign a 10-year deal with Ukraine promising military and financial assistance and becoming the eighth NATO nation to sign such a pact this year.

As politicians continue to place the invasion of Ukraine higher in importance over such issues as the invasion of the United States by hordes of illegal immigrants, the stability of the world and the United States continues to rest on shaky ground.
