I have no idea why we decided to get engaged in the Ukrainian conflict in the first place. What did we stand to gain from participating in it? They are not going to be in a position to reimburse us for the many trillions of dollars that we have loaned them in any way, shape, or form.
The war is already lost on Ukraine’s side, and I believe that people are finally starting to come to their senses and realize what’s going on. Even liberal publications such as the New York Times and the Washington Post appear to be gaining some common sense.
The New York Times reported,
The Ukrainians have been setting the stage for a broad counteroffensive in the southern Kherson region for weeks, and recent long-range rocket strikes have left thousands of Russian soldiers stationed west of the Dnipro River, in and around the port city of Kherson, in a precarious position, largely cut off from Russian strongholds to the east.
But Russia is now moving “the maximum number” of forces to the southern front in the Kherson region, the head of Ukraine’s National Security Council told Ukrainian television late Wednesday. The official, Oleksiy Danilov, described “a very powerful movement of their troops” to the front in Kherson.
While Western weapons have poured into the country, Ukraine said more arms were still needed and ammunition remained limited. Some Ukrainian officials have grown increasingly frustrated with what they believe is the slow pace of weapons deliveries from Western allies. Donor nations are training Ukrainian soldiers to use the new equipment, but that, too, remains a work in progress.
“Just give them weapons and let them work,” said Natalya Gumenyuk, the spokeswoman for Ukraine’s southern military command, which is responsible for the Kherson offensive.
This was always going to be a win for Russia. They are much more powerful than Ukraine and their generals actually worry about fighting well rather than teaching their troops about gender pronouns and weakening their standards. Russia wants the best of the best.
Americans want everyone to feel included. Let’s give everyone participation trophies. Ukraine seems to be too soft as well, especially Zelenskyy.
The Washington Post also reported that “[President] Zelensky issued a mandatory evacuation order for civilians still living in the war-torn eastern region of Donetsk, saying many were refusing to leave. “There are hundreds of thousands of people, tens of thousands of children … many people refuse to leave … but it really needs to be done,” he said in his nightly address. Russian forces have seized large areas of Donetsk but observers say its offensive has slowed.”
If he’s ordering an evacuation, then they’re losing. If they weren’t losing, then why would they be evacuating? Let’s stop wasting our hard-earned money on this country that is losing a war and start worrying about America first.
