Please look at the map of countries in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization….
Moving past the screaming headlines and action going on right now by the Russian Military overrunning the Ukraine ?
There IS an issue that Joe Biden IS worried about ….bet on it….
By moving into the Ukraine because he’s worried about NATO?
The Russian President has actually placed himself right on NATO’s doorstep….

Biden is gonna have to follow in the footsteps of just about every modern day American President in using America’s military to project foreign policy….
Most of time things don’t turn out too good….
