Zelensky: Ukraine is going to powerfully break through Russian defenses. I know where we are going to do this.

Bold claims that will be backed up on the broken bodies and dead of his nation's fighters.

I have to wonder if anyone in Kyiv or Washington or NATO is even giving a second thought to the people on the line.

This war with the exception of the rise of drones and persistent surveillance is giving no lessons on HOW to the damn thing.  Instead its giving an advanced course on WHAT NOT to do.

I don't know how this war will turn out but on so many levels we've lost on a strategic level.

1.  Sanctions are becoming irrelevant.  That dawg don't hunt no mo!

2.  We're seeing the Middle East and Africa descend into chaos.  Old alliances are being broken and new ones formed that are biased toward Russia/China and not the US/West.

3.  By our stance on this war we have become more fragile on the energy front (along with domestic politics).  Our emergency stockpile of oil is depleted and the OPEC nations no longer respond to requests to increase production.  Meanwhile Russia and Iran are able to produce at an increased rate and find willing buyers globally.

Our efforts to maintain "global order and stability" have failed.  Policy makers know it.  Many on this blog know it but the public at large doesn't.

2025 to 2030 is going to be some VERY ROCKY years for all our nations.
