Son of a ... U.S. Officials Repeatedly Urged China to Help Avert War in Ukraine WASHINGTON — Over three months, senior Biden administration officials held half a dozen urgent meetings with top Chinese officials in which the Americans presented intelligence showing Russia’s troop buildup around Ukraine and beseeched the Chinese to tell Russia not to invade, according to U.S. officials. Is the administration insane? Who could have thought the Chinese would have any interest in stopping Russian adventurism in Europe? Each time, the Chinese officials, including the foreign minister and the ambassador to the United States, rebuffed the Americans, saying they did not think an invasion was in the works. After one diplomatic exchange in December, U.S. officials got intelligence showing Beijing had shared the information with Moscow, telling the Russians that the United States was trying to sow discord — and that China would not try to impede Russian plans and actions, the officials said. So we gave classified intelligence to China, so they could share it with Russia. Great job Joe! These people are not just incompetent, they're stupid as well.
