The White House is Playing Russian Roulette in Ukraine

What are we to think as the U.S. lets its drones be used by Ukraine to slaughter Russian civilians? Do we figure that a hard-nosed ex-KGB colonel like Vladimir Putin will meekly accept such an outrage? (He has already shot down the U.S. spy drone that made that attack possible. That’s how close we are to open war.)

Do we think Putin’s intimidated by a president who can barely speak coherently, whose administration is full of cross-dressing degenerates, and whose reelection campaign amounts to jailing all his opponents? Do we think the Russians are impressed by our diversity-gutted, trans-obsessed, overstretched military? We have thrown everything we have short of our own combat troops at the Russians in Ukraine, helping to devastate that country, and the Russians still are winning. Short of us escalating to a world-scorching nuclear exchange, they are going to win. If we don’t cut a decent deal to save some of Ukraine, Russia will take it all … or what’s left of it.

Read David Goldman, a sober analyst, on how Russian and Chinese tech advances render many of our tanks, aircraft carriers, and even missiles obsolete. Instead of investing in that kind of tech, we have been waging pointless regime-change wars in places like Iraq and Afghanistan — then cutting and running after we failed and leaving behind our hapless allies, from the Iraqi Christians to the Afghan interpreters to … next the Ukrainians. The lesson: Don’t ally with the United States. Things won’t end well for you, as the South Vietnamese could have warned you.
