Our Pentagon is covered in shame, not honor.
America has lost its moral authority.
There was never a U.S. national security interest to expand NATO to Russia's borders, in the Kremlin's very own back yard, and stoke a war that would expend hundreds of billions of American taxpayer dollars, vital military equipment, and hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian lives.
Using American treasure and Ukrainian lives to 'degrade the Russian army' (which it did not) was a ruse developed for media consumption at the highest levels of the American national security establishment.
They gleefully, in a coordinated fashion, spread this excuse all over global television.
They knew all along it was a lie.
There was never any chance of 'victory' for Ukraine, only a certainty of misery and death, and eventual capitulation.
"Let's go kill some Russians!" the American generals quipped to their ignorant [of the fraud] subordinates.
How easy it is to work youngsters into a war frenzy, while you measure the drapes on your office at the largest American defense contractors.
Now the Slavic chickens have come home to roost.
When the Ukraine narrative, and conflict had run its course - presto! - a new war erupted in the Middle East.
Send in the defense contractors! They cheered in the boardrooms.
I'm waiting for SecDef Austin and his band of merry warmongers to apologize to the families of the Ukrainian dead.
I know many of them and can introduce you.
I won't hold my breath.
