If Joe Biden becomes president, it’s likely that regime change in Belarus will be his first major foreign policy project.
They’re setting it all up to hand it over to him, first thing.
Belarusian opposition figurehead Svetlana Tikhanovskaya told a meeting of the Atlantic Council on Monday that foreign governments needed to work together to depose the country’s leader, Alexander Lukashenko.
In a half-hour session moderated by the pro-NATO lobby group, she warned that “there is a need for support from the international community” and told her American hosts “please, stay with us and we will win.”
Tikhanovskaya, who claims she was the true victor of Belarus’s disputed presidential election in August, also urged the US Congress to pass a new package of sweeping sanctions on officials in her home country. Lawmakers are currently considering the Belarus Democracy, Human Rights and Sovereignty Act, which would give the American president the power to take measures against not only officials in Minsk, but also Russians deemed to have supported the regime in the crackdown since the unrest began.
“We hope that this draft bill becomes law as soon as possible, as it would inspire the US to act decisively and urgently to support Belarus,” Tikhanovskaya said. She added that, if it does, “it would send a strong signal” both in Belarus and “the rest of the world on non-recognition of Lukashenko’s legitimacy.” She also claimed it would pave the way for countries such as the US to “oversee elections” in the Eastern European nation.
Belarus has been paralyzed in the months since Lukashenko announced he had won August’s poll with more than 80 per cent of the vote. The opposition, and many international organizations, allege that the election was rigged in his favor. Since then, tens of thousands have taken to the streets in cities across the country to call for the veteran leader to step down and call fresh elections. They have been met with a brutal response from authorities.
Tikhanovskaya, who fled to Lithuania in the aftermath of the vote, previously revealed that she was working with EU leaders in an attempt to have Belarus’s top riot police, the OMON, listed as terrorists. That would mean they could be prevented from traveling or sending money abroad within the bloc.
She followed up on that call in her remarks to the Washington-based Atlantic Council, saying that “sanctions must be expanded. The US should launch their procedure of acknowledging the police departments responsible for the crackdown … as terrorist groups. And it is crucial that the US starts an international investigation of police crimes.”
NATO is totally foaming at the mouth for Joe Biden.
He’s going to pour money into it, and while the populations of Europe and America are dealing with these lockdowns and the economic fallout from them, NATO is going to go totally nuts all over the place.
After World War II, there was a big checklist of things that needed to be done to create a one world government. Virtually all those things are now checked. The globalists are now ready to just do cleanup, checking off the very few remaining things that need done before we can go full globalism.
