Ironically china is helping Russia with the interest they get from their 800 billion in US treasuries. We are indirectly and directly funding both sides onceagain. Yet another war in which we are funding both sides like the Israel war.

That report is from before recent US supplies arrived in Ukraine. Ukraine now has enough artillery shells on all fronts to go back to pounding the snot out of Russian ground forces attempts to advance.

The only reason the Russians had been able to advance in some areas the last few months was because Ukraine was forced to ration its artillery shells. That is no longer a problem,.... except for the Russians.

Since when reporters are too stupid to know that Director of National Intelligence is not a "spy", but just a lawyer and political appointee. :lol:

Based on news article he was shooting at a group of people 100 yards away and claims they were warning shots. Appears it's mistrial but that is not self defense. Just to be clear the castle doctrine/SYG laws are not a license to kill. You need to justify the use of deadly force, what they protect you against is a prosecutor second guessing your decision to use deadly force when it's justified. It's a nuance but it's an important one. In states with the "Duty to flee" laws even when deadly force is justified you can be prosecuted for making the decision to defend yourself where there may be other options.

At a London conference I attended this weekend on geopolitics, quite senior U.S. and European officials and analysts divided along two clear narratives.
Hmm imagine that more than one perspective.
And what happens if they decide that Ukraine should negotiate with Russia?
My guess is Ukrainians become bitter that they didn't do it sooner and that they were encouraged to fight in the first place.
But that is only an opinion of a possibility. Time will tell.

An opinion piece by a Trump-hating reporter mentioning unnamed "US and European officials". :roll:

Maybe that reporter should instead have talked to Ukrainians because it is their country that Russia invaded, and it is Russia that is killing Ukrainians, and it is the Ukrainians that decide if they fight or not. The Ukrainians chose to fight and the only ones that "encouraged" them to fight were the invading Russians that were trying to destroy their way of life.

But some people seem incapable of realizing such obviously simple details.
