"Biden does not realize what he says, forgetting the rules of the Cold War" - German press about insulting Putin

After US President Joe Biden publicly сообщилthat his colleague from Russia Vladimir Putin is a murderer, there were big doubts about his competence in matters of international relations, writes the German newspaper Die Welt.

Perhaps 78-year-old Biden became forgetful and did not realize what he was saying, forgetting the rules of the Cold War. But the one who offends the head of a huge nuclear power, in any case, must clearly understand the goals and understand the likely consequences.

In this regard, one can only hope that the "red telephone" is still working between the countries. At the same time, the well-known phrase of Karl von Clausewitz cannot be twisted and policy should never become a continuation of the war by other means.

It is difficult to say how events will develop further. But most likely it will be difficult for Biden to sit down at the negotiating table with the man whom he called the murderer. However, the dialogue between Washington and Moscow is necessary and not only on the issues of armaments, the press is sure.

Recently, an anonymous author presented a draft program to contain China. In it, the United States gave clear advice - to withdraw Russia from the Russian-Chinese alliance. This must be done in order for Washington to have a more advantageous position in the conflict with Beijing. However, Biden's attack on Putin will not induce the Kremlin to befriend the White House.

It is simply amazing that the state that won the Cold War itself forgot its rules. John F. Kennedy and Henry Kissinger, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush have always had a clear understanding of the lethality of the USSR. Since the Cuban missile crisis, they have always made sure that the thread of dialogue with Moscow never ends.

Hopefully, Biden thinks in similar terms. If not, then he urgently needs to visit 97-year-old Kissinger to gain experience, summed up the publication from Germany.

    Until the capital of the state is captured ... there is no Victory ... but there are temporary losses of territory ... well, like in 41-42, but what is happening now is 43-45, so the adversary rushes about ... by the way, Putin replaced four presidents in the United States .. so who is the winner in the war .. it has not ended yet .. yet the Urals have not released their T-34-85 .. and the Sledgehammer.

    To be honest, in my opinion, Biden does not really understand what he is saying very well. Signs of progressive dementia are almost impossible to hide.
    Harris may soon be in power. They were reelected ...

      This was what they were counting on: a dark-skinned, democrat, a woman, and if she also says that she is not of traditional orientation, then a 100% new president.

      I think they put him for this, then to change to Harris. Harris has a bad reputation and would not win any election.

    It is simply amazing that the state that won the Cold War

    This state was surprised to learn about its "victory" after Yeltsin's call from Belovezhskaya Pushcha.

    Such are the "winners".

    Biden will find it difficult to sit down at the negotiating table with the man he calls the murderer

    What is the difficulty?
    Psaka also said that Putin was not offended, and he himself said the same when they drew cartoons with fangs on him.
    He may not be offended, but this Sshasovsky idiot, calling Putin a murderer, automatically ranked among the murderers millions of Russian citizens who voted for Vladimir Putin and whom he represents.
    After this, one should not recall the ambassador, but completely break off diplomatic relations until this senile publicly apologizes.

    Biden is wrong only from the point of view of diplomacy, somehow it turned out not very politely. And the old man does not know how to speak a lot and for a long time, and in the end he does not say anything. And if in a simple, human way, then Biden told the truth. And he made no discovery for anyone.
