Democrat President Joe Biden, eager to placate Russian Dictator President Vladimir Putin, recently told the Russian government that he’d be willing to offer Putin special access to sensitive NATO information regarding missile-defense bases in Europe in return for… we’re not sure what Biden would get out of the deal actually.
According to reporting by Bloomberg News, Biden would hand Putin the information at the missile bases as proof that no offensive Tomahawk cruise missiles were stored at the bases. The idea came after Putin suggested on Tuesday that Poland and Romania possessed MK-41 launchers, which are capable of launching offensive Tomahawk missiles and not just defensive missiles. Putin said the existence of the launchers and the potential existence of offensive missiles presents a threat to Russia.
Bloomberg noted that any agreement to hand over the sensitive information would have to be cleared by NATO allies, particularly Poland and Romania which were named by Putin as the point of concern. Supposedly, Russia would be made to reciprocate by demonstrating that they had no similar ground-launched weapons ready to strike Europe. The White House’s National Security Council refused to comment on the matter, according to Bloomberg’s report.
Last week, Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov issued a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, suggesting that NATO and the U.S. had demonstrated “differences in the understanding” of Russia’s security demands, and added that they felt it necessary to “immediately clarify this issue… for future dialogue.”
Romania has already invited Russian officials to visit their defensive missile site on the condition that “reciprocity is met.” Additionally, an official who claims to be familiar with Poland’s stance said that the country made a similar offer.
Recently, former CIA Director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo explained to Fox News that Putin sees Biden as incredulous and weak. He pointed out that when Russian cyberattacks brought down the Colonial Pipeline, the Biden Administration weakly asserted that Russia could “only attack certain sectors.. [just] 16 are off-limits.” Other blunders included showing weakness when exiting Afghanistan, and cowing to demands from radials from within his own party.
“They don’t see President Biden as credible,” he surmised.
