On Sunday, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with host Martha Raddatz. During a segment regarding escalating Russia/Ukraine tensions, Raddatz asked McCaul what a Russian invasion of Ukraine would mean for Americans.
“Why is Ukraine important, right?” McCaul replied. “Because it emboldens and empowers Putin.”
After stating that the Nord Stream 2 sanctions “that we passed” and “were waived by this president … laid the predicate for this,” the representative added that the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan was also a “key moment” in which Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping saw weakness.
McCaul later explained that if Putin can invade Ukraine, it essentially gives a green light for Xi to “take Taiwan.”
This is why it’s so important because Xi is watching what is happening, our adversaries are watching. If Putin can go into Ukraine with no resistance, certainly, Xi will take Taiwan. He’s always wanted this, and the South China Sea, you know, as well.
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.” Rev. 16:12
