The Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs Of Staff Just Admitted That Kiev Can’t Defeat Russia


What this means is that the approximately $100 billion that the US already gave Kiev to fight Russia on its behalf in the New Cold War’s top proxy war nowadays clearly wasn’t enough to win. The US-led West’s Golden Billion is therefore truly at the so-called “tipping point” that CNN claimed earlier this week whereby it’ll either have to double down on funding Ukraine indefinitely to the tune of potentially hundreds of billions more dollars or accept the impending fait accompli of Russia’s victory.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley is the US’ top military official and can’t reasonably be smeared as a so-called “Russian propagandist” considering his leading role in orchestrating NATO’s proxy war on that country through Ukraine. If anything, he’s one of the most infamous anti-Russian figures since World War II due to what he’s doing nowadays, which is why his latest prediction about the Ukrainian Conflict should be deeply reflected on by all Westerners.

Milley took the words of the Polish Prime Minister, President, and Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces over the past week to their logical conclusion by publicly declaring on Friday that “From a military standpoint, I still maintain that from this year it would be very, very difficult to militarily eject Russian forces from every inch of Russian-occupied Ukraine.” Here’s the video of his remarks shared by the UK’s Guardian for those skeptics who delusionally doubt that the US’ top military official really said that.

What this means is that the approximately $100 billion that the US already gave Kiev to fight Russia on its behalf in the New Cold War’s top proxy war nowadays clearly wasn’t enough to win. The US-led West’s Golden Billion is therefore truly at the so-called “tipping point” that CNN claimed earlier this week whereby it’ll either have to double down on funding Ukraine indefinitely to the tune of potentially hundreds of billions more dollars or accept the impending fait accompli of Russia’s victory.

To add insult to the injury that Polish and now even top American military officials just inflicted to the prior “official narrative” about this proxy war supposedly trending towards an “inevitable Ukrainian victory”, an unnamed senior US official told the media that Kiev was wasting precious resources by continuing to fight over Artymovsk/Bakhmut. This advice came a week after Russia officially confirmed Soledar’s liberation, the development of which forced the “official narrative” to drastically change.

In what obviously wasn’t a coincidence, Der Spiegel reported on the same day as the aforementioned unnamed senior US officials’ statement and Milley’s that the German intelligence agency earlier informed lawmakers that Kiev is losing “a three-digit number of soldiers” daily around Artyomovsk. Taken together, these three narrative events plus the other three initiated by the Polish Prime Minister, President, and Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces are preconditioning the public for Kiev’s defeat.

That’s not to imply that the Golden Billion’s anti-Russian proxy will soon collapse, let alone that its opponent’s forces will sweep across the entirety of that crumbling former Soviet Republic in the coming future, but just that Kiev’s defeat now appears inevitable absent some game-changing development. At the very least, further setbacks in the Battle for Donbass are expected by the US, Poland, and Germany, ergo why their officials (both named and unnamed) just decisively shifted the “official narrative”.

These belatedly acknowledged military-strategic dynamics, which were evident for a while already but became undeniable following Soledar’s liberation last week, also help explain Berlin’s reluctance to approve its European partners’ request to dispatch their German-provided Leopard tanks to Ukraine. Simply put, the EU’s de facto leader doesn’t want to bet on a losing horse and end up embarrassed if Russian forces start sharing footage of them destroying those over-hyped armaments.

Germany could still capitulate to the Golden Billion’s unprecedented pressure to reconsider, but it’s holding firm for the moment at least largely due to these prudent calculations. With Milley publicly declaring that his declining unipolar hegemon itself doesn’t expect Kiev to defeat Russia anytime this year, there’s really no reason for Chancellor Olaf Scholz and his new Defense Minister Boris Pistorius to reverse course, which could in turn accelerate the timeframe for Russia’s seemingly inevitable victory.
