After draining billions of taxpayer dollars for military and humanitarian aid in Ukraine, many world leaders are now backing off the rhetoric that the country should continue to defend itself as Russia makes small but steady advances.


During a trip to Europe, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin publicly stated that the US desires a Ukrainian victory that leads to a weakened Russia. Biden reportedly said their remarks had gone too far and demanded they tone down their rhetoric, according to NBC News.

Officials in the US and Europe are increasingly concerned that Ukraine’s current trajectory is not sustainable.

Behind the scenes, they’re discussing whether Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky should back down from his stance that no territory will be ceded to Russia as part of a peace agreement.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who has been an advocate for diplomacy since the invasion started, recently said that Zelensky “must” begin negotiating with Russia.

However, some Biden administration officials continue to insist American taxpayers are in it for the long run.

“We are not pressuring them to make concessions, as some Europeans are. We would never ask them to cede territory,” an anonymous official said. We are planning for a long war. We intend to prepare the American people for that, and we are prepared to ask Congress for more money.”

FJB and his Administration! I don’t want my tax money going to this war! We have plenty of problems here in the USA that my tax money should be used for.

You would have said the same thing when Hitler took Czechoslovakia, same thing when he then took Poland, then Denmark and Norway, France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. When would you change your mind? When they then took Holland? Maybe when they started bombing Great Britain. Or, maybe you want to wait until they knock on your door.

We can spend millions on Gay Pride and a Woke military. But don’t waste your money saving a sovereign nation or civilians being bombed into dust. What a WASTE!

We promised Ukraine that if they gave up their nukes, we would protect them from Russian invasion. Now we just walk away? Sure! Why not? An American promise means nothing… To some of us.

Sorry, but I live next door in Lithuania. Ukraine lost its sovereignty when they sold out to biden and Soros. For all their brave fighting, they have been duped in the back rooms of politics as usual while they have been brainwashed by WEF into believing they are fighting for their freedom.
. They are merely fodder for a master plan cooked up by the globalists who see the US and Russia as obstacles in their quest to take over the entire world. As Heir Schwab says “YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY.” So, wake up, you took the Jab. The globalists already own you and they never even knocked on your door. His great Reset is not the Fourth Industrial Revolution it is what he and Soros have dreamed of since 1945 the FUURTH R

Biden has never actually helped Ukraine WIN. He wouldn’t OK Poland’s sending MiGs which would totally change things. Plus he delays effective missiles and other ordnance. The money he sends could end up who knows where! Why is Biden dragging things out and getting more civilians butchered?

This is so stupid, Ukraine has Russia on the ropes, if we give them the equipment that puts them on an equal war field, I believe that the Ukraine would win. The Ukrainian military have proven to be much better fighters, much better at artillery and rocket fire, and their pilots are even better than the Russians, but they don’t have the advanced equipment they need, like the Russians do.

I say give the Ukrainians everything they are asking for and let them win. If they don’t win, they will have weakened Russia so much that Russia will not be able to do this to anyone else for at least 25-30 years.

But if the Ukraine does win, the Russians will never be a threat to the western democracies again, and wouldn’t that be nice, especially when not risking one American military personnel, or any of NATO military personnel. The Ukrainians plan on winning it all themselves, if we just give them the equipment and armament that they need and let them do their thing.

Putin is trying to reestablish the old USSR, and Ukraine is a key part to that, but so is East Germany, Poland, and the Baltic states.

So, I say that If Germany doesn’t want to give the Ukraine what it is asking for and needs, and wants the Ukraine to give up much of their territory to appease Russia for peace, then we need to remove our military from Germany that is there to protect Germany from Russia.

If Russia attacks Germany, let Russia do to the German cities what they have done to the Ukraine cities, and then tell Germany when they give East Germany back to Russia in a trade for peace, then we’ll come back into Germany and from that point protect Germany from the Russians going any farther, just as Germany wants the Ukraine to do.

What is good for the Ukraine is also good for Germany, and France and Italy, and we need to make sure we have none of our military in those countries too, and move our military into Poland, because we are actually having to hold the Poles back from going into the Ukraine and helping the Ukrainians to defeat Russia.

Poland has lived under Russian rule before, and they never want to have to do that again, just as the Ukraine has, and why the Ukrainian people are fighting so hard against great odds, and they are winning, and probably will win if the cowards just give the Ukrainian people what they are asking for to defeat Russia, with their army only, and NATO doesn’t have to risk any of it’s military for the Ukrainian people to do this.

Actually, you are whether you like it or not. We all are. What happens in Ukraine is going to effect us all for a very long time. We can choose to win with Ukraine, or choose to lose with them. If we choose to lose, we deserve the consequences. You aren’t going to be happy with that in the ‘Long Run’.

The world has allowed the 20+ millionaires and trillionaires o ydetermind what happens in “the Long Run”. We only have no say if they are not stopped before they achieve their final goal of total global conflict resulting in the depopulation they and their Genocide partner, Bill Gates, have depopulated most of the planed and they own all the wealth and resources to insure “You will have Nothing and you will be Happy, per the WEF
