The president–for reasons anyone can guess athas long held a deep commitment to giving Ukraine anything it wants, from paying for its government pensions to providing billions in weapons. Earlier in the week, however. Joe Biden took things even further. The president aims to lock the United States into a perpetual state of semi-war against Russia.

The Washington Post reports that Biden is planning to keep the United States connected with Ukraine for at least another decade.

The deal aims to commit future U.S. administrations to support Ukraine, even if former president Donald Trump wins November’s election, officials said. It will be a framework for a long-term effort by the United States to help develop Ukraine’s armed forces, which have innovated on drone warfare and other cutting-edge techniques in the fight against Russia, but are also desperately outgunned and in need of modern weapons.

Officials said that they hoped the agreement would transcend political divisions within the United States, but acknowledged that Trump or any future president could withdraw from the legally binding executive agreement, because it is not a treaty and will not be ratified by Congress. Nor does it make any new commitments about Ukraine’s prospects for joining the NATO defense alliance, which remain distant.

“We want to demonstrate that the U.S. supports the people of Ukraine, that we stand with them, and that we’ll continue to help address their security needs not just tomorrow but out into the future,” Sullivan told reporters on Air Force One as the president flew to a Group of Seven leaders summit in Italy’s southern Puglia region.

Washington will strengthen Ukraine’s “credible defense and deterrence capability,” Sullivan said. “If [Russian President] Vladimir Putin thinks that he can outlast the coalition supporting Ukraine, he’s wrong.”

Biden has been accused of “sleeping walking into World War III.”

As his war against Putin’s invasion has continued, Volodymyr Zelensky has continued to ask for the West to escalate against Russia.

In May, the Ukrainian president requested NATO send troops to the front lines in order to “train” Ukrainian soldiers, an excuse that anyone who’s studied the Vietnam War knows how it will end.  

At the end of May, Politico reported that Biden has also escalated attacks against Putin. “The Biden administration has quietly given Ukraine permission to strike inside Russia — solely near the area of Kharkiv — using U.S.-provided weapons, three U.S. officials and two other people familiar with the move said Thursday, a major reversal that will help Ukraine to better defend its second-largest city.”
