WWIII Watch: Ukraine Is Already Out Of Ammo

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

What happened with all that $100+ billion the U.S. gave them, plus all the aid from EU countries? Oh, right, a lot of it was for paying government employees and elected officials, rather than fighting a war. And all the siphoning off, graft, etc, particularly since the money and aid have not been tracked

Zelensky Admits Ukraine Already Ran Out Of Ammo

The US-led West’s Mainstream Media (MSM) began reporting more accurately on the military-strategic dynamics of the NATO-Russian proxy war in Ukraine since the start of the year, but the true test of their comparatively improved integrity will be whether they raise awareness about Zelensky’s latest damning admission. In an interview with Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun, he candidly told his interlocutors that “We do not have ammunition. For us the situation in the East is not good.” (snip)

The very fact that Ukraine is out of ammunition proves that the West’s defeat in its self-declared “race of logistics” with Russia might already be a fait accompli by this point since it’s clear that Kiev can’t keep pace with its opponent despite being backed by all of NATO’s military-industrial capacity. Zelensky almost certainly didn’t realize that his candid admission essentially amounted to this, but it’s presently unclear whether the MSM will inform their audience about this or not.

On the one hand, doing so could contribute to his forthcoming begging campaign, but it could also backfire if taxpayers start asking whether it’s worth ponying up even more money if Ukraine already ran out of ammo despite the over $100 billion in aid that it’s received thus far. After all, if that astronomical sum wasn’t enough to keep their guns firing, then there’s no telling how much will be needed for Kiev to reconquer more of its lost territory like it intends to do.

Of course, those looking to foment WWIII really push hard

The West Must Give Ukraine the Weapons It Needs to Win

For the past four months, people around the world have witnessed the macabre process of Russian forces making repeated assaults near the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut for only the tiniest of gains. By some counts, Russia has lost about five of its soldiers for every Ukrainian soldier lost—to say nothing of massive equipment losses. Although in theory a country can win a war by using its military forces to make forward assaults against an enemy’s forces, that’s just not a smart way to fight. Military technology long ago evolved to arm both sides in conflicts with extremely lethal weaponry, and any army that tries to approach this machinery head-on is likely to suffer major, and in some cases horrific, losses.

Far more effective is to weaken your opponent’s forces before they get to the battlefield. You can limit what military infrastructure they’re able to build, make sure what they do build is substandard, hamper their ability to train troops to operate what they build, and hinder them from deploying their resources to the battlefield. These steps are doubly effective in that they save your own forces while degrading the other side’s. Over the past two centuries, the powers that have emerged triumphant have been the ones that not only fought the enemy on the battlefield but also targeted its production and deployment systems—as the Union did by controlling the waters around the Confederacy during the Civil War and as the United States and Britain did from the air against Nazi Germany.

In light of such dynamics, the manner in which the West is supporting Ukraine’s war effort is deeply frustrating. Though NATO countries have a variety of systems that can target Russian forces deep behind their lines, recent aid has been overwhelmingly geared toward preparing Ukraine to make direct assaults against the Russian army. The most widely discussed forms of equipment—such as Leopard 2 tanks, Bradley armored personnel carriers, and even Archer long-range artillery—are not the kinds of systems that can disrupt or degrade Russian forces far behind the front lines.

So, what does Phillips Payson O’Brien at the Atlantic suggest? Missile systems that can strike Russia well behind their lines, even into Russia, in the form of “longer range systems.” I just don’t get why so many want to start WWIII, all for a non-strategic nation.

      Proof that this pretend war was nothing but a psyop so the administration could further their money laundering agenda.

      The continual involvement of the former Land of the Free, Home of the Brave…previously known as The United States of America…..

      Anyway…this nonsense BS has absolutely NOTHING to do with Uck-raine ‘winning’ however has EVERYTHING to do with depleting US oil reserves right along with all military weaponry until all We The People have left is McDie pea shooters…which the sissy soldiers will enjoy ‘blowing’ to kingdom come, so-to-speak.

      What’s happening in Ukraine at this very moment is the very same thing to the 30th power what happened when Inmate Biden withdrew US military from Afghanistan leaving behind over $80 BILLION DOLLARS military equipment et al…right along with leaving approximately 10K United States citizens hostage. Which, BTW…some are STILL left behind, SILL hostage under the exact same terrorists which killed over 3,000 people!

      Please, by any & all means you can…show your family how much you really love them because I highly suspect We The People are far beyond the point of no return long ago.

      And it’s NEVER the wrong time to pray, asking God The Father in Jesus Christ’s Name to please help us. :cry:
