Thoughts on the Russo-Ukraine war and recent visits by US officials.

Thoughts on Russo-Ukraine War and visits by US Officials:

I don’t know if Zelensky is really in Kiev. Since about week two of the war, I’ve been of the opinion that he was in an embassy in Poland.

In recent weeks we’ve had several US officials visit Kiev, reportedly, including A/SecDef Miller, SecState Blinken, SecDef Austin, and now Speaker Pelosi, Rep Adam Schiff and other members of Congress.

I can track their flights all the way to Rzeszow, Poland, but not into Ukraine.

Let’s assume that he is in Kiev, and these officials went there.


Russia controls the skies over Ukraine. Military ops continue throughout the country. The most recent shipment of arms from US and UAE was destroyed shortly after it arrived in Odessa.

So if these US officials did go into Ukraine, whether it was Lviv (where Blinken said diplomats would soon set up an office) or Kiev, they would have to contact Russia and coordinate with them in order to safely go in and to leave.

In other words, if these meetings are happening inside Ukraine, then they are happening thanks to… Vladimir Putin. The same Vladimir Putin that many of these officials claim is insane, sick, reckless, aggressive, a war criminal, etc.

Now, why would Putin allow these meetings to take place?

Because he has already won the war in Ukraine.

On the other hand, if these meetings are staged in Rzeszow, Poland, then Putin is sitting back laughing because he knows that his forces will just blow up any new arms shipments coming into Ukraine.

Ukraine, with the help of pretty much every “news” agency on the planet, continues to win the info/persuasion war, but Russia continues to the win the ACTUAL WAR.

You kill a 17 headed Hydra all at once or not at all. And this Hydra does not live in one country. It’s all over the world. Starving it out into the open and then cutting off all 17 heads at once is going to be nasty, hard brutal and difficult. Wars always are. Sorry if this upsets some people. We’ve been in a war for over 2 years now. Probably the most important war ever fought in the history of the world.

A thinking person’s war.


A few night musings.
WW1 lasted 4+ years
WW2 lasted 6+ years
Korean War lasted 3+ years
Vietnam War lasted 20+ years if Wiki can be believed
Those were the major wars of our predecessors.
They were ‘pre-internet’ wars.
The people had government and media narratives to follow.
This war (arguably WW3) is probably the most confusing of the lot and where misinformation proliferates.
We are guided substantially by Trump’s words. Yet we cannot take every word literally. It is a thinking person’s war
