Blinken: US Does Not Oppose Ukraine Targeting Russian Territory With US-Provided Missiles

ABC News reports that the US is likely to arm Ukraine with ATACMS, which have a range of up to 190 miles

Originally published on AntiWar

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that it was up to Ukraine whether or not to target Russian territory with US-provided weapons, a policy that brings the US and Russia closer to a direct clash.

Blinken made the comments after ABC News reported that it’s likely the Biden administration will soon arm Ukraine with Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS), which have a range of up to 190 miles.

While appearing on ABC’s ‘This Week,’ Blinken was asked if he was OK with Ukraine using ATACMS to hit targets deep inside Russian territory. “In terms of their targeting decisions, it’s their decision, not ours,” Blinken replied.

When asked about the increasing Ukrainian drone attacks inside Russia, Blinken claimed the US does not “encourage” or “enable” the operations. However, The Economist recently reported that Ukrainian drone attacks on Russia frequently use intelligence gathered by Kyiv’s Western backers.

As the war has dragged on, the Biden administration has been less and less concerned about the risk of Ukrainian attacks inside Russia escalating the war. The administration previously feared that Russia could respond to such attacks by targeting a NATO country.

The US has also brushed off Russian warnings against providing Ukraine with longer-range missiles, as Moscow has previously called them a “red line.” According to a US official speaking to ABC, the ATACMS “are coming.”

prečo rf ešte nedodala rakety assadovi? už ho mali vyzbrojiť tak isto ako darebácky štát usa vyzbrojuje banderovských fašistov. potom by sa rozsvietila kontrolka debilom z usa keby sýrske vojská začali taktické útoky na nelegálne základne usa v sýrii!!! treba recipročne postupovať!!! a na obranu dodať ss400 proti f35!!!

of course he doesn’t. the whole goal has been to conquer and subjugate russia. somewhere around 500,000 ukrainian men dead thanks to us . think they’re going to stop now? they’re going to up the stakes. a game of poker where the loser’s are the ukrainian people. debt, death and destruction wherever they, the us go in the world…..they call it democracy…..

not to forget that’s it’s only “democracy” when te us does it. everyone else is a dictator, terrorist, seperatist or totalitarianist

and what emboldens characters like blinken? the us wouldn’t have said “boo!” to post war ussr; whereas p’s regime is putty by comparison, despite having military superiority. if only 1 us missile had hit rus territory in ’65 wash-dc would have been dust. today endless attacks on rus towns hardly registers with p & co. meanwhile those ‘experts’ praising rus smo ‘strategy’ are also from the west. go figure!!

fortunate for mr. blinken that missiles haven’t yet been launched in his direction.

USA the world's bully

what you forget to tell nato citizens blinken, is that it is usa satellite intel that gives ukraine the targets inside russia. ukraine has no means to find and lock on targets inside russia. targetting inside russia is 100% nato, so you lie blinken, claiming nato is not at war with russia.

actually, the us launching their own missiles via the ukrainian eggheads constitutes an “act of war.” mr. blinken needs to consider the ramifications of that but i’m sure if another war should happen that mr. blinken will be comfortably entrenched in the plush, government-designed massive bunker for “government mucky-mucks” only. fortunately, the russians probably will locate it if they haven’t already.

the us presidents come and go, but putin always stays eternal as such mr. putin has changed 5-to 6 us presidents, remember the famous phrase spoken by us presidents and european presidents and politicians what they were saying assad must go, hah, everyone who spoke those words is nowhere in politics or nothing, either deeply retired or dead, assad never went anywhere, assad is in syria still after 11-12 years, but all those that said assad must go, they went and never came to be seen ever.
