In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin still worried about the Soviet Union

What century is the defense secretary living in? Looks like he’s back in the 1900s with President Biden.

There are actually two mistakes here. Not only does Austin call Russia the Soviet Union, but he calls Ukraine “the Ukraine,” which is what it was called when it was part of the Soviet Union.

According to Fox News:

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Thursday accidentally referred to Russia as the Soviet Union while speaking during a visit to Seoul, South Korea.

Austin was answering a question about how the U.S. plans to respond to potential Russian aggression at the Ukraine border, saying any U.S. response would be made in collaboration with the international community during a press conference.

“Whatever we do will be done as a part of an international community. The best case though is that we won’t see an incursion by the Soviet Union into the Ukraine,” Lloyd said, referring to Russia but accidentally calling it the “Soviet Union,” Reuters reported.

The Soviet Union, which formed in the 1920s, collapsed in the early 1990s after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
