2 weeks ago:" Austin asks Russian defense minister for cease-fire in first talks since Ukraine invasion began"
Yesterday Washington Post comes out a story describing poor state of Ukrainian volunteers:
Yesterday Zelensky harangues the West.
President Volodymyr Zelenskiy urged the West to stop playing around with Russia and impose tougher sanctions on it to end its “senseless war” in Ukraine, adding that his country would remain independent, the only question was at what price.
Zelenskiy’s criticism of the West has mounted in recent days as the European Union moves slowly towards a possible Russian oil embargo and as thousands of Russian troops try to encircle the two eastern cities of Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk.
Western military analysts see the battle for Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk as a possible turning point in the war after a shift in momentum towards Russia following the surrender of Ukraine’s garrison in Mariupol last week.
Zelenskiy said Russia was getting one billion euros a day from the 27-nation bloc for energy supplies.
A few days ago Washington Post opinion leaders come out for a debate on US Ukraine war policy.
It’s time to challenge the orthodox view on the war in Ukraine.
As Russia’s illegal and brutal assault enters its fourth month, the impact on Europe, the Global South and the world is already profound. We are witnessing the emergence of a new political/military world order. Climate action is being sidelined as reliance on fossil fuels increases; food scarcity and other resource demands are pushing prices upward and causing widespread global hunger; and the worldwide refugee crisis — with more international refugees and internally displaced people than at any time since the end of World War II — poses a massive challenge.
Furthermore, the more protracted the war in Ukraine, the greater the risk of a nuclear accident or incident. And with the Biden administration’s strategy to “weaken” Russia with the scale of weapons shipments, including anti-ship missiles, and revelations of U.S. intelligence assistance to Ukraine, it is clear that the United States and NATO are in a proxy war with Russia.
Shouldn’t the ramifications, perils and multifaceted costs of this proxy war be a central topic of media coverage — as well as informed analysis, discussion and debate?
Why, then, aren’t more individuals at think tanks or in academia, media or politics challenging the orthodox U.S. political-media narrative? Is it not worth asking whether sending ever-more weapons to the Ukrainians is the wisest course?
The first Washington elite opinion leader has come out agin US policy & the EU still will not act on an oil-gas embargo & the real state of Ukraine resistance fighters makes the news. The Ukraine policy is being revealed as a continuation of the Perpetual War foreign policy of the US. Of course, this new opposition will be pushed back by the defense industry in their zeal for new increased defense spending proposal. Is the US agenda agin Russia toast? What is in the best interests of the American population?
Will Ukraine like Syria end as a lost of US prestige & defeat? The sheen of the “exceptional” nation is tarnished. Even Latin nations are refusing to be lackeys & challenge the US who can come to the Summit of the Americas.
