If you take Democrats, their media allies, and establishment Republicans’ word for it, you’d think their proxy war with Russia in Ukraine is a massive success.
The facts tell a much different story.
And Ukraine’s top General just made a stunning admission about the failure of Joe Biden and the ruling class’ war against Russia.
American tax dollars can’t fix everything
President Joe Biden and the rest of the American ruling class assumed that they could topple Russian President Vladimir Putin by simply giving Ukraine an endless supply of working-class Americans’ tax dollars – and taxpayer-funded weapons – and sending hundreds of thousands of working-class Ukrainians to the slaughter.
Their media allies have worked overtime to convince the American people that this strategy is working wonders, as they’ve constantly parroted verifiably false talking points about the supposed successes of Ukraine’s so-called “counteroffensive.”
But despite their best efforts, in reality, it’s all nothing more than a fantasy.
At least, that’s according to the Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, who recently gave a lengthy interview in which he fully admitted that the war against Russia has reached a Great War-like “stalemate.”
In an interview with Economist Magazine, General Valerii Zaluzhnyi admitted that “just like in the first World War we have reached the level of technology that puts us into a stalemate,” and that “there will most likely be no deep and beautiful breakthrough,” despite the more than $120 billion in American tax dollars the country has and will continue to receive.
According to General Zaluzhnyi, the issue lies in the fact that American elites and others from NATO countries have been utilizing western military doctrine, which he explained is for highly mobile forces, not a small army of mostly forced enlistments like Ukraines’, to direct the war effort from afar.
For example, the General explained that based on the NATO military standard, his forces counteroffensive should be moving at a pace of 19-miles per day, but as the Economist noted, “five months into its counter-offensive, Ukraine has managed to advance by just 17 kilometers,” which is 10 whole miles.
Zaluzhnyi hilariously admitted that if his forces could move at the pace of NATO forces, Ukraine could have “reached Crimea, to have fought in Crimea, to return from Crimea and to have gone back in and out again” in the amount of time they’ve moved just 10 miles.
Expecting too much of Ukraine
He also revealed that in the midst of Ukraine’s struggles, he realized the tactics he was being forced to use weren’t suited for the war they’re actually fighting and turned to books about the tactics of World War One to figure out how to fight the Russians.
“And before I got even halfway through it, I realized [a stalemate] is exactly where we are because just like then, the level of our technological development today has put both us and our enemies in a stupor,” Zaluzhnyi said.
General Zaluzhnyi explained that today’s modern military technology, like drones, satellites, and sensors, gives both sides an unprecedented level of information about their opposition, effectively making “sneak attacks” functionally impossible and breakthroughs nearly impossible.
“The simple fact is that we see everything the enemy is doing and they see everything we are doing,” he noted.
In fact, the General believes the outlook for Ukraine’s so-called “counteroffensive” is so bleak that he told the Economist that the stalemate will only be broken if there happens to be a breakthrough in technology on the level of China discovering gunpowder some 1,300 years ago.
General Zaluzhnyi’s comments come on the heels of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy telling the people of Ukraine that the U.S. and other western nations had taken the country’s efforts for granted and simply expected too much of them.
“The modern world is arranged in such a way that it gets used to success too quickly,” Zelenskyy claimed.
“Whatever some might want, including attempts to pressure us, with all due respect, we will advance on the battlefield the way we deem best,” he added. “Some people believe this is a Hollywood movie and expect results now. It’s not.”
So while President Joe Biden, the rest of the American ruling class elites, and their media allies continue to tell American taxpayers that they’re somehow winning this ordeal, Ukraine’s own leaders are fully admitting the truth.
And unless the politicians and unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., change course, it’s only going to get much worse.
