The Biden Administration is lying to the American Public about Ukraine.
If you have been listening to mainstream media, you may have heard Secretary of State Blinken say something Moscow has “already failed” and will not achieve its goals. “In terms of Russia’s war aims, Russia has already failed and Ukraine has already succeeded,” Mr. Blinken said Monday. “We don’t know how the rest of this war will unfold, but we do know that a sovereign, independent Ukraine will be around a lot longer than Vladimir Putin is on the scene.”
Secretary of Defense Austin says he wants to see Russia’s military capabilities “weakened.”
What the hell are Austin and Blinken thinking? Do they believe that America has the unlimited resources to enforce that? Do they believe that a mere $8 billion in support to Ukraine is going to “weaken” Russia?
We explained Putin’s goals here. He announced his aims officially, so there is little doubt. He wants to control the land bridge between Russia and Crimea, to secure logistics to his navy base in Sevastopol and to be able to run gas and oil pipelines through it securely.
He currently controls that area. Now he just needs to lock it in by crushing the Ukrainian Army. And we already know that he will not stop, that he cannot stop. What mainstream is calling “devastating losses on Russian forces” has been merely the cost of doing business.
If you want to add our own conspiracy theory, the reason Russia pulled away from Kyiv is because Zelenskyy sold out. Putin no longer needs a regime change, and in fact is supporting Zelenskyy by taking out the more radical Ukrainian military forces. Then they can walk out hand in hand and declare a truce. (Was Zelenskyy Just Paid to Surrender?) That makes the sanctions no longer necessary. This would be a horrible outcome for the U.S.
Russia’s forces are not “weakened.” In fact, when he achieves his goals, his army will contain battle hardened soldiers, who will get new equipment as Putin replenishes the military, having expended his older, outdated equipment. Ever heard the word “anti-fragile”?
And because of this, Putin’s popularity in Russia is strong. Not that he would get the 95% of the vote that his fraudulent elections purport to give him, but he might even win a popular vote in Russia right now.
Here is a day by day update video on Russia’s control of Ukrainian territory. Not that at one point he pulls away from Kyiv. Putin never wanted Kyiv. The origin is a U.S. organization, Undertandingwar.org, so consider the images here to be optimistic pro-Ukraine in bias, if any.
If you want the true update, here it is. Russia is progressing on its encircling actions. They have taken out the fuel dumps supporting the Ukrainian Army. Now they have started to take out the railways that ship supplies in.
The Ukrainian Army will be cut off from supplies, they will run out of everything, and they will surrender.
Note that the Biden Administration has stopped talking about sanctions. The sanctions have not been anywhere close to having the effect they were supposed to. Putin has been planning this for many years and has circumvented them to a great degree. Europe is in a stranglehold and their support has been exceedingly weak.
All of this failure is due to the incompetence of the Biden Administration. They will likely continue to lie to the public, claiming victory where there is none, putting “lipstick on this pig.” This is in fact a devastating loss for the American people and the West. Adding this to the Afghanistan debacle, no one will trust us again.
