He said, ” as a member of the military, I’m willing to go if we do go.” The courageous Lieutenant Colonel Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) knows he what is talking about when it comes to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war on Ukraine. He also happens to represent the American district with the most nuclear plants. Listen to this.
He urged the U.S. to quit being so timid in our response to Putin’s attack on its democratic neighbor. This before the Russian kills hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians. He said it is a matter of when we fight for our brave friends not if.
Kinzinger is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force Special Operations, Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command, and Air National Guard. And he was the first one in Congress to have the insight to “call for airstrikes against ISIS,” according to his congressional page.
He tweeted that allowing the 40-mile-long Russian convoy is “similar to Nazi invasion of France:”
‘Short thread 1) I fear that allowing that 40 mile long convoy in #Ukraine being allowed to sit for days will be written in history as a massive mistake in world history, similar to nazi invasion of France.’
The representative also said “we are stalled with fears of escalation” but Migs (aircraft) are “no different” than what we already send:
‘2) we are allowing #Putin to set the rules of the war, as he threatens nuclear, biological and chemical weapon use, we are stalled with fear of escalation. Transferring Migs to #Ukraine is no different than the weapons we are sending..’
Then, he added the airspace over Ukraine belongs to the Ukrainians:
‘3) Yet we OPENLY state what we will NOT do, and allow Putin to say what he MIGHT do. He has illegally contested the airspace of #Ukraine and we have been invited to stop that by the legitimate owners of the sky, but we may have to shoot down a Russian jet. Yep..’
Kinzinger pointed out that we allow Putin to set all of the rules of engagement:
Next, he said that “there is a point where we will stand:”
‘4) But that will be Putins decision. If he is willing to use a nuke, he will if Ukraine beats him. Should we then allow him to march everywhere he wants? Or is there a point where we stand. Maybe it is an attack on a NATO member…’
The Illinois congressman also said “maybe the best time to stop this is when he [Putin] is on his heals:”
‘5) and I have no doubt we would respond. But, it’s worth debating maybe the best time to stop this is when he is on his heals, now, before he can rearm and regroup. After he threatened nukes we cancelled a regularly scheduled ICBM test. Why?’
And he asked “why don’t the #Ukrainians have anti-ship missiles:”
‘6) what better message to appear unfazed than to remind of our capabilities? Why don’t the #Ukrainians have anti-ship missiles to inflict cost on ships and defend against amphibious landings? Why don’t we say, TODAY, that the use of WMB is a declaration of war against humanity’
Kinzinger said “our military with NATO cannot be defeated:”
‘7) i do believe we have done a lot, and the administration should be commended for that. But it’s time to remember that our military with NATO cannot be defeated by Russia. It’s time to say that, and it’s time to be clear that Putin can go no further. Long live Ukraine.’
Finally, he added that “I’m willing to go”
‘PS… i was called a war monger 6 months before we attacked ISIS, when i was the first member of congress to call for that. I hope I’m wrong in this, but I fear I’m not. And as a member of the military, I’m willing to go if we do.’
