The administration of US President Joe Biden does not plan to follow the example of the UK in sending long-range missiles to Ukraine.
Details: Politico noted that the US considers this problem solved thanks to the planned supply from the UK.
London intends to send missiles with a range of 300km to Kyiv.
That’s the same range as the Army Tactical Missile System, known as ATACMS, which Washington has refused to transfer to Ukraine.
Politico quoted a US official as saying that “our policy on ATACMS has not changed”. Instead, he stated that the US would continue to provide Ukraine with Patriot systems, ammunition and armoured combat vehicles.
Journalists fight on their own frontline. Support Ukrainska Pravda or become our patron!
We do not have a strong, upright president in the White House, with foresight and courage. We have a marshmallow with a staff made of jellyfish. Bad times for the US and the free world. The Chinese dragon is licking its chops. Iran is laughing, North Korea is drooling, mafia land is snickering.
Except the Chinese dragon knows those ATACMS are all waiting for it.
If the US did provide weapons to hit Russia, who is to say that Russia wouldn’t provide Iran, North Korea or other radical terrorist groups with weapons to hurt the US. Russia would of course deny involvement in any attack.
Escalation is a dangerous game and Biden is wise to be conservative.
I hope the CIA is playing the same game though and helping build up Ukrainian domestic production. I really assume they are and would burn Biden in effigy if it were learned they weren’t.
I imagine Sir Honestly, your view of Chamberlain in 1938 would be the same? History is repeating before your very eyes and Biden is reliving the worst of Chamberlain. Thank God we have true friends not wimps
Iran and North Korea are already providing weapons to Russia so why would Russia provide weapons to them? Both the countries would love to hit the USA for decades so what difference would that make. Once again you have talked yourself into a hole. That’s what Kremprop does to people.
Different weapons being exchanged.
“Russia is providing ‘unprecedented’ military support to Iran in exchange for drones, officials say”
“Russia may supply Iran with fighter jets”
“In total, Tehran is hoping to obtain “billions of dollars” worth of military equipment from Moscow.”
And, the WH is quietly watching the show.
No, Biden is not wise being conservative. Letting this war drag out is not a wise move. Defeating mafia land asap would be a wise move. Anything less only encourages our enemies.
For me weakness, fear of escalation,… are not consistent with the facts from one yers of war. Red line is a dashed green line today. Practically no more weapons are taboo (remember the hysterical Kremlin with the first Himars)
In the end, there is not much choice: Moscow will have to be weakened, otherwise how many years will it take them to return to Ukraine? 2, 3? So it will take what it will take. Personally, Biden cannot afford to fail in helping Ukraine. Impossible.
My opinion is that they have take the decision to smooth the military effort according to the effect of the economics/diplomatics sanctions. They took longer to take effect and we want to be sure that Moscow does not attempt another invasion and that it is permanently weakened. A kind of “controlled skid” that weakens, channels escalation and Orc threat. This mechanism looks like a trap that is more and more effective. But it costs a lot of lives unfortunately.
Just my feeling.
As I said, many of times, Biden’s a criminal, helping Russia.
Remember what he did altering the HIMARS range without telling Ukraine ??? He didn’t tell them the range was altered, so they did not have the range they were trying to fire.
He’s for sure a spineless coward.
“they did not have the range they were trying to fire.”
That’s not true. They were modified so they couldn’t fire long-range missiles (e.g., ATACMS), which the US wasn’t going to provide. But the range wasn’t limited for the missiles that the US *did* provide, so Ukraine had the range for everything that they could fire.
“a criminal, helping Russia.” – You’re thinking of Trump.
Trump is a traitor and thus, yes, he’s a criminal.
