Posted on 10/01/2022 5:54:12 AM PDT by McGruff
U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan says Ukrainian efforts to join NATO should be taken up "at a different time," throwing cold water on the country's desire to join the international alliance and potentially easing Russian tensions as President Vladimir Putin has begun accelerating rhetoric of potential nuclear war.
Ukraine formally applied to join NATO as a military partner on Friday, coinciding with Putin's announcement that Russia would be formally annexing four occupied regions within Ukraine's borders. If accepted, NATO-aligned forces would formally be drawn into the war, pitting forces in the West against the Russian military and, potentially, escalating the conflict.
NATO's Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said earlier Friday that while it supports Ukraine's right to pursue an alliance with NATO, all 30 allies need to reach a consensus on membership.

As did NATO and Germany, within hours.
The real enemy is....
Now just remove ourselves from NATO, and let Europe deal with their own problems.
Ukraine’s borders are now contested which supposedly would preclude them from joining NATO now anyway.
The only way NATO is going to accept Ukraine while a war with Russia is ongoing is if NATO makes a conscious decision to enter the war directly.
However there is a likelihood that when Ukraine pushes Russia out of all of it’s territories including Crimea, that NATO will immediately accept Ukraine.
Ukraine at that point is going to be a formidable fighting force and a true asset to NATO. They will be one of the top 10 militaries in the world. They were #22 when Russia ceased Crimea. Now they are probably around #15.
And having been defeated and pushed out, Russia will then be forced to choose between ceasing hostilities and starting a real war with NATO.
This will have the neo’s foaming at the mouth today. They were all ‘mad bros’ yesterday.
Looks like ukrain is finding Joe isn’t really their friend,, he’s Communist China’s freind.
Ukraine is just where he does laundry.
Cannon-fodder to feed the Russians.
You are a walking talking delusion Danny boy.
There is no ‘contested’.
Those four regions are now apart of Russia forever.
Ukraine is presently “Honorary Nato”
Putin wants Ukraine as a buffer against Europe
Europe now has Ukraine as a buffer against Russia
Can you imagine being sent into the guns for that little cretin-puppet?
Too late. That should have been our policy years ago.
However there is a likelihood that when I use the john this morning, the winning Powerball ticket will end up beneath me.
Ukraine needs to win its war first and on favorable terms. A lot more fighting left to do for this to happen.
Ukraine should just cede it’s territories to Mother Russia and stop all this nonsense.
When Sullivan says it it’s real policy. Unlike when Biden says something.
Cannon-fodder to feed the Russians.
I loathe Joe and his CCP masters.
They don’t care
or how many
for their profit and control.
Basically Biden washed 60 billion US tax dollars through Ukraine and Russia annexed Ukraine territory and now he is selling out Ukraine by telling them to piss off.
Reads like a Ludlum novel.
