Putin’s invasion of Ukraine lacked a casus belli, but that isn’t to say it was unprovoked. It
was provoked when Joe Biden bugged out of Afghanistan and when the trash administration he runs spent the rest of its time in office purging our military of warriors unwilling to take a vaccine that doesn’t work. Our military readiness is such that we are almost sure to lose the next war we fight, and Putin knows it. So does Xi Jinping.
