CBS Reporter Asks Jen Psaki “Why Not” Send U.S. Troops Into Ukraine to Fight Russia Over Bucha Massacre
A White House reporter confronted White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday (April 5) and asked why the US and its NATO allies can’t militarily attack Russia over its alleged actions in the Kyiv suburb of Bucha.
“Why shouldn’t the images from the atrocities from Bucha compel a worldwide unified coalition kinetic response,” asked CBS News Radio’s Steven Portnoy during the White House press briefing.
“You mean a military war,” asked Psaki. “Tell me more about what you mean.”
“Sure,” replied Portnoy. “A military response led by the United States and the international partners.”
“As in bringing military troops on the ground from the United States and NATO,” asked Psaki.
“Well, the president described ‘outrageous’ things. You’ve called them atrocities,” said Portnoy. “You’ve said perhaps we should brace ourselves for worse.”
“Why not?” he said.
“I think what the president’s objective is and his responsibility is to make decisions that are in the interest of the United States and the national security of the United States and the American people and not to go to war with Russia. It’s to do everything in our power to hold them accountable, to support efforts through international systems, to do exactly that. And to provide military assistance, security assistance and support to the Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian government. That’s exactly what we’re doing. But it is not in our interests or in the interests of the American people for us to be in a war with Russia.”
China Calls for Fact-Checking on “Deeply Disturbing” Bucha Massacre, Tells All Sides to “Avoid Unfounded Accusations”
China has given its first public response to the reports and images of a civilian massacre in the Ukrainian city of Bucha.
Addressing a United Nations Security Council meeting on Tuesday (April 5), China’s ambassador Zhang Jun said that the reports and images coming out of Bucha are “deeply disturbing,” but stressed that accusations against Russian forces must be independently verified and based firmly in facts.
“Attacks against civilians are unacceptable and should not occur,” the ambassador said. “The reports and images of civilian deaths in Bucha are deeply disturbing.”
He added a key caveat while stopping short of condemning Russia, stressing that “circumstances and specific causes of the incident should be verified and established” and that “all sides should exercise restraint and avoid unfounded accusations.”
