Without any objection to how the war is being conducted on the American side, General Mark Milley has said it will last “at least years for sure.” That’s because Biden doesn’t want Ukraine to win. Milley and his comrades are content to keep the war going, costing thousands of lives, as long as they don’t provoke Vladimir Putin.
Putin seems to have a mysterious hold over members of the Biden Administration.
Almost every day we see another story about political figures, Democrats and Republicans, wondering why the Biden Administration is so timid when it comes to providing weapons to Ukraine to win the war against Russia.
The typical term is “slow-walking” weapons to Ukraine.
Putting it another way, there is some substance to the claim by Marxist scholar Noam Chomsky that current U.S. policy is to “fight to the last Ukrainian” while “offering no way to save Ukraine from further tragedy.”
However, saving Ukraine — and the world — from further tragedy is not to give in to Russia but rather to develop a strategy of victory over communism.
Recognizing the no-win nature of the war, when it comes to the United Nations, Ukraine President Zelensky said the world body wasn’t doing anything to support Ukraine because Russia is a permanent member and has veto power. He noted, correctly, “We are dealing with a state that turns the right of veto in the UN Security Council into a right to kill.”
Biden, a great backer of the U.N. who once wrote about his love for a New World Order, understands what Russia is doing and either doesn’t care or has another agenda, set in motion by his handlers, that will be implemented at the same time.
