Sleepy Joe is doing his part. Supposedly, he’s giving the Ukrainians 13 Vietnam War-era APCs. He held up until now because he thought doing so might start WWIII.

Honestly, thanks in part to our feckless president, Putin will “win” this war, if it’s possible to use such a word. He will carve out a piece of Eastern Ukraine for Russia and get his land bridge along the Sea of Azov to Crimea. Who’s going to stop him? Ukrainians are fighting valiantly, but the West will not bankroll an endless war. Biden certainly won’t. Unless the Ukrainians receive large quantities of heavy weapons and armor they won’t be able to extricate the Russians. The West wants this war over yesterday due to the escalatory threat. I have a feeling they’ll eventually throw Zelensky and Ukraine under the bus.

What the Russians have are time, determination, patience, and absolutely no scruples. They’ll get their territory, at a stiff price, no doubt, but they’ll get it in the end. Unless the Ukrainians receive large quantities of heavy weapons and armor, something I don’t think NATO can or will provide, Donbas is a goner.

Western nations are giving the Ukrainians a lot of castoffs—older weapons systems or older versions of more-modern systems that are being upgraded. How long before these stockpiles are depleted and these countries begin eating into their own defense needs? I give them a few months at most, certainly not years. Russia can bide its time. I don’t think we have any idea how much force it will take to remove the Russians from Donbas, but it will be a lot. I’m not convinced the West is up to it.

I don’t think Putin is worried about a handful of 155mm howitzers or Vietnam-era APCs or Mi-17s. He doesn’t need Biden’s permission to send in hundreds or even thousands of tanks, artillery, and APCs to level Ukraine. Short of some sort of coup, and I wouldn’t hold my breath on that, he’ll have as much time and equipment as he needs to get the job done. On the other hand, Ukraine, I’m afraid, is ****ed, thanks mainly to our president, who is scared of his own shadow.
