Military Advisers?

Does Vietnam ring a bell?

As the war in Ukraine drags on and we hear this side or that is winning….a couple of representatives have horrible idea……they think we should send in military advisers to Ukraine.

A bipartisan group of House lawmakers visited Kyiv on Saturday, and two members of the delegation told Fox News that they support the idea of the Pentagon sending military advisors to Ukraine, which would significantly escalate US involvement in the war.

After meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) said he supported sending military advisors into Ukraine to oversee weapons shipments and help with intelligence and logistics. “It could be contracted, it could be civilian, but it could be military as well,” he said.

“I don’t think anybody is advocating for any [American] military on the front line, but helping with logistics, planning those operations, integrating the intelligence is incredibly important right now,” Waltz added said.

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ) also expressed support for sending military advisors to track weapons shipments. “It would be good to have a logistics officer here to make sure that we understand and track the weaponry that we’re sending,” she said.

Last month, The New York Times reported that there is CIA personnel operating in Ukraine to direct intelligence sharing with Kyiv. The report said there are also commandos in the country from Britain, France, Canada, and Lithuania to help facilitate the transfer of Western arms, but there is currently no known US military presence in Ukraine.

Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA), the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, was also part of the delegation that visited Kyiv but wasn’t quoted saying he supported sending military advisors.

Seriously?

Have any of these idiots every read a book?

Military advisers lead to the US escalation in Vietnam and we know where that lead (well some of us but not these morons)…..

Maybe a good idea would be to check out just who pays their ‘donations’……my money is on the M-IC.

Hopefully the rest of the Congress will see the folly of this idea….but I will not hold my breath.

  1. Any involvement in the Ukraine affair by the United States can only result in a Vietnam or Afghanistan-like result. But this time we are messing with a far more dangerous adversary and I believe our leadership is too smug about the whole thing.

  2. The UK is currently training 6,000 Ukrainian volunteers in military bases in Britain. We have already sent ‘advisers’ to western Ukraine to train troops there how to use the NATO-standard weapons we have ‘donated’ (Read sold) to the country. Some British advisers were killed on a rocket strike in Lviv, some time ago. Their names were witheld, as they were designated as Special Forces. (Read SAS)
    As far as I can see, the UK is already ‘In country’, so I suppose the US will be next.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. We may already be covertly there…..but these tools want it ‘official’….was a bad idea in Vietnam even more so for Ukraine. chuq
