Contractors are winning the war, Ukrainian civilians are losing


Don’t believe the propaganda coming out of Team Biden and its Big Media allies regarding Ukraine, one analyst insists.

Ukraine “is not winning the war,” he said. In fact, “they are losing badly,” James G. Rickards, editor of Strategic Intelligence, wrote on Jan. 4.

The narrative from the Ukraine cheerleaders in D.C. is that the second coming of Winston Churchill, Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, has led his country to major gains in recent months and has Russia on the retreat.

The reality, Rickards noted, is that “most of the Ukrainian gains were against lightly defended positions that the Russians quickly abandoned because they were not worth fighting to defend. Those Russian troops (really Donbas militias) were ordered to retreat to fortified Russian lines while Ukrainian forces rushing to fill the void were slaughtered by Russian artillery bombardments.”

The primary Russian objective, Rickards added, “is to grind down and destroy the Ukrainian armed forces. … The best intelligence says Russia is presently enjoying an 8–10:1 casualty rate. In other words, Russia is inflicting eight to 10 casualties on Ukraine for every casualty it’s suffering. That kind of ratio isn’t sustainable for Ukraine.”

As it prepares to lower the boom on Ukraine, Rickards notes that Russia “has reinforced its positions with 300,000 or more fresh troops (about 30 divisions) who are rested and resupplied. That’s in addition to the number of troops already in Ukraine. Evidence indicates they’re backed by at least 1,500 tanks, 5,000 armored fighting vehicles, 1,000 rocket artillery systems, hundreds of fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters plus thousands of tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and drones.” More at WorldTribune

  1. The Germans had superior equipment and training when THEY got into a war of attrition with the Russians.

    How’d that work out for them?

    Napoleon had the most powerful, most modern, best trained army anywhere when HE got into a war of attrition with the Russians.

    How’d that work out for HIM?

    Zelenskyy is kind of a Hitler, but not militarily, and no sort of Naploeon as well.

    And he’s in a war of attrition with Russia.

    Absent open world war, only one way this ends.

  2. Never get involved in a land war in Asia.
    Well, unless your uncle owns a defense company.

  3. Take note today of how often and hard Dana Perino on Fox News goes out of her way to minimize or otherwise subliminally present Bidens problems and how to pass off excuses as to why it’s not a problem and how to present it to overcome Republican objections.

    She is a SNAKE.

    She is on the ‘other’ side.

    And she is not alone at Fox.

    Lot’s of Friday the 13th Snakes on that Fox Flight.

  4. RU will not need to back engineer our old junk. Who has Excalibur missiles?
    On another note, that famed “Wagner” group contains motivated prisoners. It is an old idea. It is apparently still a good idea. They take the most fit vicious prisoners and after only 6 months in Ukie Land, they get clean records. Yes many don’t last even 6 months at the front line…but how much worse than a Russian prison?

  5. Same as Wilson, Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson the puppet-masters pulling the Retarded Pedophile Usurper Joey’s strings will get the American Armed Forces involved before it’s over.
    First will come “mission creep.”
    Then some of our guys will conveniently be killed by the evil Putin’s artillery.
    So more “advisors” will have to be shipped in with addition “protection.”
    Then we’ll have to have “strike” capability – so we’ll move more mechanized forces to Ukraine.
    Same old shit, different day (century).

  6. or the people wo are pushing/supporting Zelenskyy will find an assassin to remove Valdimir Valdimirovich. It doesn’t matter which Russian replaces him, we’ll find ourselves embroiled in a true world war, not a Viet Nam action.

  7. Zelenskyyyyy is a freaking oligarch. Like the ones biden says he hates. Maybe there are pics online of Zelenskyyyy’s Miami villa somewhere. It’s funny that he keeps coming over to ask for money but doesn’t sell any of his properties around the world for ‘the current thing.’

    Don’t get me wrong, Putin’s an ass, too.
    Just seems to me like the two of them got together to bleed us dry. Does it cost lives? Yup. Do they care?
    Not a bit.

  8. Zelenskyy and Putin aren’t the problems – the Retarded Pedophile Usurper Joey and the greedy maggots who control him are the problems.

    I doubt that a large portion of Americans could find Ukraine on a map – this is strictly an elitist gambit.

  9. The Pentagon announced last week that just under 100 Ukrainians were being trained to run our Patriot Missile Defense System. Training time? 6 months. I’m sure Raytheons jumping up and down with joy over that contract. Odds are the system won’t be complete for a year. What a joke.

  10. The hate Russia/Love Ukraine stuff the media and Biden are pumping out daily is to get people’s minds off of inflation, infectious diseases, crime.

    Covid19 has now lasted longer than the 1918 flu, which petered out by early 1920. Instead of petering out, we are in for stronger strains of it. All the easier to cull the population. Human-engineered killer virus? Yeah, I think so.

    I’ve been reading for sometime about how the European Elites, and now the American Elites are coordinating to replace the general population with Mullato cross breeds. In years past I’ve always considered that kind of thing bull shit. However considering our border crisis, Ukraine, the massive take over of of Europe by Mooslems, I will now consider this theory.

  12. @Brad

    Yep, a theory worth considering. As dastardly as the elites are, I wouldn’t put it past them. An attempt to rid the world of the white race, whom they blame for everything bad, is a strong possibility.

    BTW – to be honest, I wrote the post which I called the work of one Karen Greenqueer. It was meant as parody. I don’t think that way at all. But I thought it was illustrative of liberal/work belief systems. Sex, or what they call sex, along with global warming overrides all else.
