Ukraine ‘Disaster’ Has Only ‘Terrible and Bad Choices’
The situation with Ukraine is a “disaster” with only “terrible and bad choices,” says former ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell, and foreign leaders “smell weakness” with President Joe Biden in charge.
“All the work we did, whether it’s the border, whether it’s the Middle East, and now what we’re seeing in Europe is frustrating,” Grenell (Pictured here), who served under former President Donald Trump and is now a senior national security analyst for Newsmax, said on “The Count.”
“We don’t have any good choices. But the reality is that the leaders of Russia and China and a whole bunch of other places smell weakness.”
And now, with the news that the United States is starting to evacuate nonessential personnel from Ukraine, that shows that there is no plan for what will happen if Russia invades Ukraine or what will happen if Americans are left behind enemy lines, like they were in Afghanistan.
“We don’t have a handle on the numbers,” said Grenell, adding that the U.S. does not have an ambassador in Ukraine, so lower-level individuals are left to coordinate with Washinton.
“I can tell you from experience,” he said. “I’d been at the State Department for 11 years. The individuals who are in charge of our embassy in Ukraine right now are not making decisions on their own. They’re going back and organizing with the assistant secretary of state for Europe[.]
“Where is American leadership?” said Grenell, adding that Secretary of State Antony Blinken is “totally dismissed on the world stage, and so is Joe Biden.”
