Flip-flops on Morning Joe Over Ukraine is so constant, who can keep it ?! In mid-February, co-host Mika Brzezinski noticed that Biden’s response was “not strong enough.” Joe Scarborough then insisted that no one would attack Biden as weak against Ukraine: “What has been done so far is nothing short of historic. “
Last week, we mentioned Scarborough says that in favor of a no-fly zone, Republican senators are pressuring Biden to “do something that will trigger World War III.” He has branded those Republican senators “Jackfruit.”
Then on today’s show, Brzezinski suggested that without waiting for Russia to use nuclear or chemical weapons, the level of Russian atrocities already demands direct US and NATO intervention in the war in Ukraine. You may get dizzy watching this show!
Of Jonathan Swan Axios Was justified What would be the “atrocity threshold” that would persuade the United States and NATO to go beyond their current policy? Supplying arms to Ukraine, but not directly involved. He wondered if the use of Russian strategic nuclear weapons or chemical weapons would put irresistible pressure on the United States and NATO to move to Ukraine.
That’s when the obviously upset Mika interrupts Swann. Her voice is trembling with emotion He said:
“When you ask this question, Aren’t you already there? When you ask, what is the threshold of atrocity? “
Translation: In Micah’s mind, what Russia has already done is outrageous, and claims that the West is directly involved in the war. And as the screencap reveals, Mika, crossing his arm, a dissatisfied look on his face, would be dissatisfied with nothing less than direct Western intervention!
Joe Scarborough joins Mika with retired Admiral James Stavridis, an MSNBC analyst and former NATO supreme allied commander. Stavridis agrees Russia’s use of nuclear or chemical weapons will begin talks [about direct western involvement] In a very serious way. “Stavridis mentions a third possible triggering event: if Russian troops begin to cover up Ukrainian protesters, Stavridis also hedges his bet, adding,” We should be concerned about growing. . . A very high end conflict between nuclear energy. It’s a delicate balance. “
Mika ended the division by advising the United States and NATO to look “weak.” As they stand side by side children and women are being torn apart, and cities are being destroyed. It is A “bad look” for the WestMika concludes.
The obvious question for Joe: Is your wife pressuring Biden to “do something that will trigger WWIII?” Did you call Mika “Jackfruit?”
In the Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says Russia has already crossed the “atrocity threshold” that guarantees direct US and NATO involvement in the Ukraine war, which in part was sponsored by Dove, Celebrity Cruise and Directive.
6:16 am ET
Mika Brzezinski: So President Biden is going to Europe to meet with Jonathan Swan, NATO. And then Poland, in this situation. Is the administration looking at alternatives?
Jonathan Swann: Well, the main question, there are two key questions that I see when I talk to Biden officials. The first is, What is the atrocity threshold inside Ukraine that could provoke a major response from NATO? What will actually create the moral pressure that the United States and its NATO allies have to go beyond what they have said is not. We are not getting involved. We are not doing no-fly zone, we are not doing any version of no-fly zone.
Micah: Can I just interrupt? Because when you’re asking that question, aren’t you already there? When you are asking [voice quivers with emotion]What is the atrocity threshold?
Swann: I told people, basically, no, we’re not doing that. It’s a red line, we’re not involved. But it turns out, it’s a theoretical conversation. You actually see this happen. If God forbid we see these small, strategic nuclear weapons or chemical weapons being used on the ground, you don’t know what the conversation is about. We are all having this beautiful theoretical conversation. But when you look at the atrocities that are taking place in real time, the pressures that are about to be created, the moral pressures on the international community, we do not understand what is going to happen.
. . .
Joe Scarborough: And Admiral, let’s talk about Mika’s question. Haven’t we seen the horrors already? Haven’t we already seen civilian casualties that should cross the line? . . . We have not seen in Europe, using nuclear weapons. We have never seen chemical weapons unveiled on such a large scale in Europe. Do you believe that will be the red line That the United States and NATO will say, we are not going to Moscow, we are not going to Russia, but we are going to Ukraine, and we are going to start protecting these people?
James Stavridis: I think the conversation starts in a very serious way, yes. Those two examples. I’ll give you a third, Joe. Go back to the video that showed the Russians shooting in the air in front of the protesters. If those guns come down and they start cutting the line of civilians, I think the pressure will be almost irresistible at that point.
. . .
The bottom line, however, is We need to be concerned about growing. A very high-end conflict between nuclear energy. This is a fine balance. I think the administration has got it right so far.
. . .
Micah: Dynamic is not goodAlthough the reason We stand next to each other and watch the baby and the mother tear up, Day by day, and the city is being destroyed. I don’t know what the effect will be like in Europe and America in the end [sic, look] It may not be weak, but It’s a bad look.
