Assessment: While the US president calls for Putin’s removal, there is growing chatter to enact the 25th Amendment and his removal …
When the modern world was young and politically bipolar, our biggest fear was a rogue military commander launching nuclear weapons that would quickly escalate into a general nuclear exchange. That particular scenario proved to be overhyped. Command and control systems made it close to impossible for the “krazy commander” scenario to happen.
What about a doddering old fool with his finger on the actual nuclear trigger? How many nervous wargamers in the Pentagon have been running that simulation in the last two months?

My PJ Media colleague Matt Margolis outlined two extraordinarily dangerous statements made by Biden in recent days. The president casually announced that if Russia used chemical weapons in Ukraine, the United States would respond “in kind.” That would be a dramatic shift in policy since previously, the United States only included a direct attack on U.S. citizens or vital interests as grounds for retaliation.
Biden also told U.S. troops stationed in Poland to be prepared, implying they were going to be sent to Ukraine to join the war. “The president has been clear we are not sending U.S. troops to Ukraine, and there is no change in that position,” a White House spokesperson told The New York Post.

“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden said at the end of a speech in Poland. Do you think Putin would view an attempt to overthrow him as an “existential threat”?
