While the world awaits the counteroffensive that has been promised by Ukraine against the invading Russian army in the East of the country…..its officials are planning the ‘next’ counteroffensive action…….
These officials are starting their program to get even more of American taxpayer money….even before their first long awaited counteroffensive has not been successful or for that matter has not even begun.
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister said the upcoming counteroffensive would not be the last. The diplomat requested NATO members transfer more advanced weapons to Kiev for the coming operations, including F-16s.
Dmytro Kuleba, the Ukrainian foreign minister, said in an interview with Deutsche Welle, “Do not consider this counteroffensive as the last one, because we do not know what will come out of it.” He continued, “It means we have to prepare for the next counteroffensive.”
For months, the Pentagon has been assisting Kiev in planning its operations. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has used the forthcoming counteroffensive to lobby for more weapons from his Western backers.
Last week, Ukrainian Ambassador to the UK Vadim Pristayko indicated the long-anticipated operations would begin once the weather improves. Recently American and Ukrainian officials have suggested the counteroffensive to retake territory could fail.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said that the results of the counteroffensive would have significant sway over whether Ukraine continues to receive US support. “If Ukraine is successful in the eyes of the American people and the world, I think it will be a game-changer for continued support.” He continued, “If they are not, that will also have an impact, in a negative way, though.”
Although, at a joint press conference on Tuesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and UK Foreign Minister James Cleverly explained Western support is not based on Ukraine’s battlefield success. “We need to continue to support them, irrespective of whether this forthcoming offensive generates huge gains on the battlefield, because until this conflict is resolved and resolved properly, it is not over,” Cleverly said.
Who decides that?
Maybe a look at Ukraine from SouthFront.org
I would like the American people stop believing the hype….and the wealth of disinformation designed to garner public support for the continuation of this conflict that only certain people profit from….hint: it is not the Ukrainian people.
I realize that some think that the purse strings for war is unlimited but the lust for war will destroy this country in time.

I am kind of weary with Ukraine right now but I am expecting a miracle of deliverance for them.
Yep that would be the US job. I am tired of seeing our tax dollars being wasted on a muddy field. chuq
Let’s keep those dollars so that we can use them when Russia decides to bomb us.
Spend it on infrastructure is a good idea as it is now we are flushing it down the toilet. chuq
I give up –you win —
But the cpu8ntry still suffers….so I do not feel so good about the win. cuq
I dunno — I am no suffering all that much right now… I am saving my suffering for when T.Rump gets to squat in the Oval again.
Is that how I spelled country? Damn it must be early and not enough coffee. chuq
Weird that the ‘Libertarian Institute’ would rely on graphics from a known (and Treasury sanctioned) Russian disinformation outlet. There are far better, far more objective sources available.
Maybe the Libertarians are Russian fronts…..map is secondary to the post…..chuq
The map was the unique portion of your post, that’s why I commented on it. Maybe the Libertarian Institute is a Russian front……but given its association with antiwar.com……that would implicate them as well. Russia started this war – and Russia can end it. Being pro-Russia in this regard is incompatible with being anti-war.
It is a voice against the waste of these conflicts….that does not make it pro Russia just like criticizing Israel is not antisemitic…..chuq
Voices that echo a nation’s propaganda……
Propaganda comes from many sources. chuq
Do you see the Ukraine as this generations’ Vietnam?
Not right now… but it is getting closer by the month. chuq
Now the UK is sending Ukraine cruise missiles!
I think our current government actually wants to provoke a war with Russia against a NATO country (Britain) simply to divert attention from their daylight robbery, corruption, and the collapse of the British economy.
Zelensky wants more. Jet fighters, more tanks, more missiles, more drones, more artillery, more rockets, more ammunition. Could he not have bought some of those from the billions of dollars and pounds already pumped into his country? I am sure there are many uninvolved countries who would be happy to sell arms to Ukraine. And we both know he has the money to pay for them.
But he wants more…
Always more…..and more…..and we (West) provide with no accountabili8ty. chuq
Don’t worry about your spelling.
Fingers have a mind of their own…LOL chuq
I am simply grateful to still have fingers that work.
Me too….but a keyboard that could spell better would be a great help LOL chuq
O already have spell check but early hours I am just lazy….LOL chuq
I cannot believe that you, of all people, would have a lazy bone in your body. From the tone and temperature of your writings, I would venture that your life has been one of magnificent accomplishments that required a lot of hard work and determination to achieve.
It has been an uphill struggle…..and a few failures but for the most part I wo9uld not change a thing. chuq
