U.S. SENATOR: 'The Russians Are Dying ... It's The Best Money We've Ever Spent'
Zelensky's press service released a video of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham saying, "The Russians are dying ... It's the best money we've ever spent."
While some are suggesting Kiev edited the clip, Graham isn't alone, as Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin counted the Russians forces killed and Russian equipment destroyed as Ukraine's "wins" on the battlefield.
This, as Maidan Coup architect Victoria Nuland says the U.S. has been helping Ukraine plan a counter-offensive for several months...
Just when you think that members of the U.S. Government can’t get any more shameless in their support of Ukraine, they find a way. And yes, I’m talking about Senator Lindsey Graham, who went all the way to Kiev to say this:
“The Russians are dying … It's the best money we've ever spent.”
That clip was released by the Ukrainian Presidential Press Service, and the response from Western media has been to argue that we don’t know if the video played out as it appears, or if it was edited. So, are they saying the Ukrainian Government isn’t entirely trustworthy? Interesting.
So, we know that Graham gleefully said “the Russians are dying” in one clip, which speaks for itself. And then “It's the best money we've ever spent,” which I can only imagine refers to U.S. aid to Ukraine, given the fact that he’s sitting across the table from Zelensky, and the U.S. Congress, which Graham is a part of, approved $113 BILLION for Ukraine last year.
But anyways, Lindsey isn’t the only one talking about U.S. foreign policy, because one of the architects of the 2014 Maidan Coup, Victoria Nuland, also spoke out this week and had this to say:
“And even as we planned for the counter-offensive, which we have been working on with you for some four or five months, we are already beginning our discussion with the Ukrainian Government and our friends in Kiev, both on the civilian side and on the military side about Ukraine’s long-term future,” Nuland said.
That’s right, it appears that when she isn’t handing out pastries to protesters or securing funding for neo-Nazis, Nuland is making sure the U.S. plans Ukraine’s counter-offensive. Which, seeing how well that over-hyped Spring offensive has actually worked out… I’m not sure that’s something the U.S. would want to credit for?
Of course, Nuland just pushed the timeline back, insisting that now they’re waiting for the NATO summit in July for the offensive to begin. She also said the U.S. plans to keep supporting Ukraine and believe Kiev will become the “engine of Europe’s revitalization” as it sets “the democratic example… for the whole world.”
And also on the topic, of how do these people say these things with a straight face… we have U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin:
“The whole world has seen how much Ukraine’s armed forces have accomplished, and I have great confidence that they will continue to succeed,” he said, following a meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group on Thursday.
What exactly are they succeeding at again? Using the weapons and ammunition NATO sends them and continuing to ask for more? Or, as Lindsey Graham said, is the goal to kill as many Russian forces as possible, but that coupled with destroying equipment were the only victories Secretary Austin was able to come up with.
“Sometimes when we have these conversations, it sounds like Ukraine is losing on this battlefield. That’s not the case. Ukraine has inflicted significant causalities on the Russian forces. They’ve destroyed an incredible amount of equipment,” Sec. Austin said.
Speaking of equipment, Kiev continues to demand F-16 fighter jets. And while the UK and the Netherlands have started a coalition to make that dream a reality—because Rishi Sunak is trying to maintain his bizarre bromance with Zelensky—Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, is the latest U.S. official to say it won’t be a “game changer.”
“F-16’s—there’s no magic weapons in war and sometimes certain things get labeled as that they’re going to be the magic weapon. There are no magic weapons. F-16’s not, and neither is anything else,” General Milley said.
And despite his decades-long career with the U.S. Military, General Milley actually said the following with a straight face: “Ukrainian forces continue to fight, and they’re making the Russians pay severely for every inch of Ukrainian ground. Ukrainian assistance is not fueled merely by weaponry and manpower. It is fueled by the unbreakable spirit of freedom and Democracy.”
Yet I don’t see the U.S. calling on its NATO allies to provide more spirit of Freedom and Democracy to Ukraine right now.
But that’s not even the most insane comment of the week. THIS is:
“This is a Ukrainian war. It is not a war between the United States and Russia. It’s not a war between NATO and Russia. It’s a war between Ukraine and Russia. And we are supporting and supplying and training and providing assistance. But it is not a direct conflict between the United States and Russia,” General Milley said.
So, the U.S. provides the money to prop up Zelensky’s government, and the weapons and supplies to prop up the Ukrainian Military, American politicians and officials celebrate the Russians that have been killed and admit to planning Kiev’s counter-offensives, and yet they will lie to you directly and tell you that you’re crazy if you think this is a proxy war against Russia. And that kind of dangerous rhetoric that expects the public to abandon basic logic is something everyone should be talking about.
