It Seems Russia Won’t Require a Winter Offensive to Win the War

Paul Craig Roberts

Moon of Alabama has proven to be a reliable source of reporting on the conflict in Ukraine. The posting of November 23 indicates that some part of the Russian government or military has finally realized that Russia is at war. You can read the account here: https://www.moonofalabama.org/2022/11/ukraine-lights-out-no-water-and-soon-no-heat-.html

The eight-month old Kremlin policy of protecting Ukraine from attack, thus helping Ukraine to conduct war against the Russian forces, seems to have come to an end. The infrastructure–power, transportation, water–of Ukraine is being shut down. The real war Russian attacks on Ukraine’s ability to function have gradually escalated, resulting in wider and more serious damage. It seems that the Russians don’t want to destroy everything unless the West and its puppet Ukraine government fail to come to their senses.

The Western LovePeddler media, of course, doesn’t report the true situation. The Western presstitutes are a propaganda ministry and have created a picture of Russian defeat. It would be difficult to identify the worst liar in the Western media as there are endless candidates, but the UK Telegraph’s Charles Moore is a leading candidate for posting the most far-fetched reports: See, for example,” Vladimir Putin’s only hope now is to terrify the West into negotiating away Ukraine’s victories.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/11/18/vladimir-putins-hope-now-terrify-west-negotiating-away-ukraines/ The Telegraph also tells us that “Ukraine could reach Crimea by Christmas” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2022/11/19/ukraine-news-russia-war-latest-putin-missiles-severodonetsk/?li_source=LI&li_medium=liftigniter-rhr

American so-called “Russian experts” spread the same delusions.

Consequently, the Western peoples have a totally false picture of the situation. Russia could destroy Ukraine in a day without using nuclear weapons. The Kremlin’s restraint–in my view a strategic blunder as it enabled the West to get involved and widen the war–in Ukraine has a number of legitimate reasons. Ukraine and the population there have been a part of Russia for centuries. There is much intermarriage. Most Ukrainians are not favorable to the neo-Nazis who have dominated Ukraine since the US overthrew the government in 2014 and have suffered at their hands. The Kremlin doesn’t want a poverty-stricken ruin of a country on its border, and the Kremlin doesn’t want the responsibility for rebuilding Ukraine’s infrastructure.

It is inconceivable to me that “experts” and “reporters” in the West are so stupid and corrupt to have written the ridiculous accounts of the conflict that bear their names. It is total nonsense and has encouraged the false belief that Russia can be defeated and that “Ukraine can be in Crimea by Christmas.”

That such absurd propaganda can be effective can result in the US/NATO putting boots on the ground, and then we have World War III.

From Washington’s standpoint, the more Ukraine is destroyed the better. If Putin finally abandons his half-way measures and gets down to real war, the war will soon be over. If Washington can prevent Zelensky from surrendering until Ukraine is destroyed, Washington gets the benefit of the economic and financial drain on Russia that rebuilding will impose. From Washington’s standpoint, the more problems for Russia the better regardless of the cost to Ukrainians.

What we are witnessing is the enormous inhumanity of Washington and the NATO capitals. It is unjust that it is Ukraine that is paying the cost of Western inhumanity and not Washington and the European capitals.

Don't mind that guy. As if Ukraine would have stood a chance if they were fighting Russia on their own. The truth of the matter is that America wanted this war. They just railroaded NATO into it and paid the comedian president to use his country as a battlefield.

So from your own point of view Putin was right by sending troops into another sovereign state, while USA and NATO are the devils for coming to Ukraine's rescue?

I believe you are part of the people that thought Ukraine will be annihilated in two days, so you're now surprised and disappointed that your "almighty Russia" is been pushed back by "little Ukraine".

Ukraine will come out of this war stronger and more equipped militarily and there's nothing any of you can do about it.
