Prof Prussen: Ghosts of Vietnam War haunted Biden in Ukraine
MOSCOW, April 25 – RIA Novosti. This view was expressed in an article on the portal where US President Joe Biden was chasing the ghosts of the Vietnam War in Ukraine. Speech Professor of History at the University of Toronto Ronald Prussen.
“The shadows of such Vietnamese specters are evident in Biden’s carefully crafted approach to Ukraine, particularly in his deliberate reluctance to involve American troops in the war,” the author wrote.

Prussen noted that Biden was one of the few who advised US President Barack Obama to be aware of the dire consequences of the escalating conflict in Vietnam before he builds up troops in Afghanistan. Then Biden failed to persuade him, but according to the article’s author, the current US president has Vietnam’s lessons in mind in his policy towards Ukraine.
The author believes that the “ghost of Vietnam” forced Biden to strike a balance between desired goals and reasonable methods of achieving them. Prussen writes that this was evidenced by the strong support of Ukraine but the reluctance to send US troops there and be drawn directly into the conflict.
The professor believes Biden will face a tough internal struggle should he be re-elected for a second term. But the author leaves open the question of whether he can maintain the previous equilibrium.
Biden has previously officially announced his intention to fight for the US presidency again. The oldest American leader in history will be 82 years old at the next election, and if he wins and serves the entire term, he will be 86 when complete.
