No Big Invasions, Please: Biden Okay With Russian "Minor Incursion":
The usual outcry of "dementia" and "senility" has gone up already. And I would be the last to rule anything out, but even a brief overview of Biden's career would show that he's been doing this sort of thing for a long time. He's been acting like this in the Senate and the Obama White House. Whatever else he's got, this is who Biden is. He thinks that he's very smart and that he's cutting to the chase.
In reality, he's making a huge mess and embarrassing the United States.
And with a chair in the White House, he's got more scope to do that than ever before.
Biden on Wednesday sparked confusion and intense criticism over suggestions that Russia would face lesser consequences for launching a “minor” attack against Ukraine, prompting the White House to quickly try to clean up the remarks.

“It depends on what he does as to what extent we’re going to be able to get total unity on the NATO front,” the president said during a press conference at the White House, referring to the allies of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

“I think what you’re going to see is that Russia will be held accountable if it invades, and it depends on what it does. It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and we end up having to fight about what to do and not to do,” Biden said.
This might be true, but it's a really dumb thing to say out loud, not least because it announces weakness. --->READ MORE HERE
Ukrainian president tells Biden 'there are no minor incursions':
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pushed back on President Joe Biden's comment that "a minor incursion" by Russia into his country could reveal a divide among trans-Atlantic allies about how to respond.
Zelensky, whose country is facing the possibility of a Russian invasion after Russian President Vladimir Putin amassed a significant military presence on the border between the two nations, said on social media on Thursday, "We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations. Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones. I say this as the President of a great power."
A day earlier, during a marathon press conference, Biden made headlines for appearing to suggest that a "minor" invasion would not result in the harsh sanctions and ramifications that the administration had previously threatened.
“It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion, and we have to fight about what to do and not to do,” Biden said. “But if they actually do what they're capable of doing with the force amassed on the border, it is going to be a disaster for Russia if they further invade Ukraine.” --->READ MORE HERE
