Although the narrative pushed by the US government and propped up by the mainstream media is that “Ukraine is winning,” in a recent classified briefing to Congress the Pentagon is singing a very different tune. As the Biden Administration continues up the escalation escalator, shouldn’t the American people hear what military experts really believe? Also today: Why F-16s?
Yesterday (January 31) the Biden Administration announced yet another military aid package to Ukraine including yet more powerful weapons. This comes as a new PEW Poll shows that Americans increasingly believe that the US is doing too much to help Ukraine. Also today: The US government investigates its massive aid transfers to Ukraine and finds no misuse of funds. Shocker!
A US Pentagon agency has released photos and details of the loading and shipment of Bradley Fighting Vehicles to Ukraine for the purpose of fighting Russia. While obviously such shipments can be tracked by governments, including by Russia, does it seem odd that the Biden Administration seems to almost be bragging about the long journey through international waters? Also today, a sad time for the once-neutral Swiss.
The latest “Twitter Files” release was a bombshell, detailing how a group of neocons got together to falsify information about “Russian disinformation” in 2016 to demonize Donald Trump and help Hillary Clinton. It turns out there was election interference…but it wasn’t the Russians it was the neocons. Also today: warhawks exaggerating the China threat.
Less than a day after the US and Germany agreed to give heavy tanks, Ukraine’s president Zelensky again upped the stakes, demanding F-16s and long-range missiles that can strike deep inside Russia. US officials remain confident that Russia will not respond to the steady escalation. What if they’re wrong? Also today: China goes to Africa with briefcases instead of bombs.
With the sudden about-face of the US and Germany on sending heavy tanks to Ukraine, the world finds itself bizarrely transported back in time to WWI or WWII. German tanks with iron crosses returning to the very ground they were expelled from in 1945. History repeats itself. First as tragedy, then as farce.
