With tensions continuing to build between Russia and Ukraine, Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene revealed that her need to fight for peace stems from not wanting to send U.S. troops overseas.

Greene took to X (formerly known as Twitter) on Feb. 16 to post a lengthy message as to why she has been fighting “so hard” to force a peace deal within Ukraine.

“They have been saying it behind closed doors for a long time and have admitted it in our briefings, but now they are finally threatening it out loud. They want to send OUR military, with its all time record low recruitment numbers and depleted ammunition and supplies, to fight on the front lines against Russia!!!” Greene wrote.

“They threaten us saying if we don’t vote to fund Ukraine then they will send our uncles, cousins, and sons to fight against the Russian military in Ukraine!!!” the Georgia representative continued.

Late last year, House Republican Speaker Mike Johnson blocked sending additional foreign aid, including to Ukraine, until the U.S. southern border was included into the package.

While a bipartisan senate bill was released early February, Republicans quickly turned it down over claims that the deal allowed various legal loopholes for illegal immigrants.

As U.S. funding has dwindled for Ukraine, however, Delaware Democrat Sen. Chris Coons warned Feb. 16 that the country could be acing direct combat with Russia due to the lack of financial support, according to CNBC.

“In the next front against Russia, it will be Americans on the front lines,” Coons stated to the outlet at the Munich Security Conference.

“We are best off investing in the Ukrainians who are fighting bravely for their own freedom than allowing [Russian President Vladimir] Putin the opportunity to spread further chaos and violence across Europe,” Coons added.

Greene continued to state within her post that U.S. would not only rather stand at the southern border to “defend our own homeland,” but that “billions” in foreign funding is being “stolen and laundered.

“Do you remember our anger watching those 13 flag draped coffins being brought home??? Heed my warning. Do NOT send OUR military to fight in that senseless war!!! And stop voting to fund the slaughter of Ukrainian and Russian soldiers and sending BILLIONS of our money to be stolen and laundered!!” Greene stated.
