Just enough hopium to continue the madness.
If they cared about Ukraine, they would have followed the Minsk Accords or even negotiated last year or encouraged Ukraine to settle after the war started.
This is a good lesson to any country trusting the US to protect it: the US will use you in a proxy war but won't save you.
As far as I can see, every goal of the West is backfiring. The "economic war” has forced a reluctant but pragmatic Russia into a Chinese embrace. It has also helped spell economic disaster for parts of the West. On the ground in Ukraine, the idea that the Russians will “soon run out of weapons and ammunition” has proven to be woefully wrong as the Russians are now singlehandedly disarming the entire West including, to some degree, the United States. As the inept and criminal Zelenskyy sends troops to the Donbas region to prevent a rout, they have achieved unprecedented casualties during rout after rout. The West has sent shockingly expensive but equally shockingly ineffective weapons to be destroyed or captured by the Russians, many times even before they make it to the front. I’m not sure that the Russians would allow anything less than unconditional surrender at this point, but anything is better than what the Ukrainian citizens are having to endure in this fat-cat proxy war.
I’m coming to the conclusion that Putin has been playing chess while everybody else is playing checkers. The war in Ukraine was a relatively inexpensive and low-risk way to empty the treasuring and the armories of the West. Canada is out of weapons and has no real path to re-arm. The U.S. is also facing challenges to replace the weapons it has sent to Ukraine and other war zones. We know that the cooperation between Russia and China is “without limits.” This is far from over -- the West has punched the tar baby and continues doing so and there’s no way out now.
War is a racket
This and the vaccines are about the Agenda 2030 depopulation goals, this western provoked conflict is tying is killing many birds (and people) with one stone, this conflict may lead to a worldwide Holodomor.
Do Ukraine's allies have the industrial base to back up this war of attrition? I get that US and NATO can empty their materiel stockpiles and print money. But can they manufacture munitions and replacement equipment faster than these are being destroyed? This isn't 1941, when the US had a large manufacturing economy that could be repurposed for armaments. Nowadays the US cannot even float one white-elephant aircraft carrier.
The west / NATO give not one damn about Ukraine. Biden and whatever passes for his State Department are so full of idiots I cannot even fathom the full damage being done to the world. The dying spasms of the U.S. Dollar as world reserve currency can be heard clearly. Debt is an anchor hanging around the necks of all Dollar users / holders and everyone with a brain knows this. So what do we do? Print more as fast as possible and run hard towards the Green New Deal. Like lemmings over the cliff. The big reset is coming and it will not be kind to most. Pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
Excellent clear eyed writing as always, Jordan. The Covid charade was (is) bad enough, but playing losing chess with another nation's blood is a whole new level of vile
Now do I take down my yellow and blue flag??
And this is 2022!!! We shouldn’t even need these governments. We are not even close to being self governed. How do we get rid of these people that keep perpetuating this crap and not letting people live and let live?!?!
When you figure Russia could have bombed them into submission with their superior strategic bombing capacity, something else is going on here. Not sure what it is but this whole thing makes no sense the way it is playing out now. From a military perspective it is a very weird way of conducting a war on Putins part, i am sure he has an end game that will help him in the long run....or maybe this was all planned by Klaus and his loyal students. Putin is one of them.
An excellent commentery about what is going on in Ukraaine. Thank you.
The MIC can order as many new weapons as they want.
Don't know who is going to make & deliver them.
If they cared about Ukraine they wouldn't have supported a coup in 2014, wouldn't have prodded it to provoke Russia, wouldn't have allowed Azov to shell civilians in Donbass for eight years, wouldn't have built a network of bio labs in the country.
They've been intent on using Ukraine as a tool in their imperial games against Russia for probably at least a decade.
There is not one thing he has dabbled in that has not turned into
something you try to remove from the bottom of a shoe
NATO must be disbanded.
