Has the West betrayed Ukraine? Does it give it few weapons? It is still different. We don’t have enough ourselves. Western warehouses are gradually being emptied, and we have long since liquidated our own production facilities because they did not bring in enough financial profits. And if perhaps those factories are still operating, they are dependent on inputs from other parts of the world anyway. The Russian-Chinese industrial complex, on the other hand, is running smoothly. When someone describes the US HIMARS missile launcher, one can agree with them that it is a formidable killing machine. But to turn the war around Ukraine would need hundreds of such machines, and the West cannot supply them even if it wanted to.
Thus, the supply of weapons is not aimed at changing conditions on the battlefield, but at prolonging suffering. Thus, after mobilising the 16-year-olds, the Ukrainian side may be able to mobilise the 14-year-olds and I do not know who else. This is the only result of our “help”.
The West has betrayed the Ukrainians in something else, namely in pressuring the Ukrainian government not to make a deal with Russia.
The West has betrayed the Ukrainians in something else, namely in pressuring the Ukrainian government not to make a deal with Russia. Yet the Ukrainians themselves have no interest in the war. Why should they provide their territory as a beachhead for an attack against Russia? Will it improve their security or their standard of living? No way. Why should they not leave the people of the Donbas alone? If they want autonomy, why not give them autonomy? From the point of view of the Ukrainian people, the war makes no sense.
But if Western governments do not even take into account their own people, why would they take into account some strange Russians? Let this be a lesson to all those who are under the illusion that they would have any regard for the dirty and lazy Poles and Czechs. And don’t ask what will happen when the Central Europeans run out.
