Kissinger is wrong: We can’t give Putin a win in Ukraine:
For the third time since becoming president, Joe Biden has said he would send US forces to defend Taiwan should mainland China launch an attack. And for the third time, White House staff and the State Department had to “walk back” (diplospeak for “deny”) that the US position has not changed from its “one China” policy.
Perhaps President Biden means to dissuade Beijing. But this is the same president who too rapidly withdrew US forces from Afghanistan and promised not to send troops to Ukraine to help that government repel Russia’s invasion. The excuse given was that Russia is a nuclear power. So is China. What’s the difference?
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, now 98 years old, has jumped into the fray. In an address to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Kissinger said Ukraine must give up some of its territory to Russia for the war to end and to avoid a wider conflict.

Would he be OK with ceding those territories to Moscow to avoid global “destabilization” and a wider conflict? --->READ MORE HERE
