US should pull out of transatlantic alliance instead of waging proxy war on Russia, Republican lawmaker says
Washington should pull out of NATO instead of sending billions of taxpayer dollars to Ukraine and risk nuclear war, according to a Republican congresswoman who has sharply criticized Washington’s response to the Ukraine crisis.
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, made the case in a series of tweets Thursday.
Ukraine is the “the new Iraq wrapped in a nice little NATO bow, with a nuclear gift inside”, she wrote.
“The American people don’t want war with Russia, but NATO and our own foolish leaders are dragging us into a war. We should pull out of NATO.
She described the provision of military aid to Ukraine, which she voted against in Congress, as a “proxy war” against Russia for which the Americans have no appetite.
“Grinding Ukraine to fight Russia is disgusting, they could have been an ally,” she tweeted.
Marjorie Taylor Greene also listed a host of issues she considers most pressing for the American people, from soaring inflation to fentanyl overdoses and rampant crime. The only people in the running for a conflict with Russia are “those who make money” she asserted.
“NGOs, defense contracts of all kinds, grants, trade agreements, even humanitarian aid, political consultants, etc.” she wrote. “War is an industry. A deadly profitable industry.
Washington warmongers seek war with Russia “should get dressed and go fight it” themselves, she suggested. “Send your children and leave ours alone. Pay it yourself.
