Hollywood star and noted foreign policy expert Cher has offered her assessment of the Ukraine-Russia conflict in an effort to stoke American outrage about the brewing dispute, predicting dire consequences if Vladimir Putin’s aggression goes unchecked.

Cher wargamed a scenario in which Putin will continue to “devour sovereign countries” after he invades the Ukraine, until “he resurrects the USSR.” She said this will leave Europe “small” and “unprotected” while Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia form an axis to bring the U.S. to “its knees.”

Cher also invoked the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill, claiming Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia see a “perfect opportunity” in the riot to take advantage of domestic strife.

Most Americans oppose major U.S. involvement in the Ukraine-Russia conflict, with only 26 percent saying they want the U.S. to play a major role in the dispute, according to a recent AP-NORC poll.  Nevertheless, the Biden administration is trying to sell the idea that war with Russia is important to protect American values.

Another poll shows that President Biden’s approval on the Ukraine-Russia issue is underwater. A mere 40 percent of voters approved of Biden’s handling of the conflict, while 45 disapproved, including 35 percent who said they strongly disapproved, according to a Politico/MorningConsult poll revealed Wednesday.

Cher endorsed Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election, even singing the old chestnut “Happiness is a Thing Called Joe” during a virtual campaign fundraising event.

“Joe will keep us safe. That’s all you need to know,” Cher sang.
