Another blow struck against the fascist invader.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

Best to give the Ukrainians all of the weapons they need right now to fight and defeat this brutal invader, because if Ukraine falls you know it's not going to be the end but just the beginning of worse things to come.

Go Ukraine!

Ukraine will pay a price for their stupid wars in summer when the Russian campaign beginning in winter!

For the first time, the G13 managed to overrule the G7 and ensure that “Non Russian” declaration.

It's very unlikely that Ukraine can turn the tide in the next 45–50 days after which the rains descend in all their fury.

The West is very angry.

They expected a breakthrough by Ukraine and a belief that such a breakthrough would force the Russians to negotiate from a position of weakness.

It didn't happen.

Instead Ukraine lost too many men and too much equipment.

Bradleys, M113s, M777s, M109s, Leopard Tanks, Strykers all burning on the battlefields.

The West can't really keep pursuing aggressive strategy here.

They tried being aggressive, threatening people in 2022 and 2023 but that was because they hoped they would be in a winning position.

That's not happening.

Now they need to end the conflict without appearing to look defeated.

And then divert attention to Africa or China.

Ukraine hasn't started any stupid wars. The whole stupid thing was started by stupid Putin.

The West is very angry. 

They expected a breakthrough by Ukraine 

expected? I don't think so.

Though I know I certainly hoped for the invaders to be squelched quickly and decisively.

We should have express-delivered the arms Ukraine needed; the delays gave the invaders time to build defences that they should never have been allowed to build.

There are no winners in any war, but this is one that Putin had lost by April of last year.
