US Journo: Media's U-Turn in Ukraine Crisis Coverage Reflects West's Intention to Abandon Kiev
Were US Spooks & Military Really Unaware of What Was Going on?
"The scenario of weapons reaching the black market or falling into the hands of extremist groups in a notoriously corrupt country such as Ukraine which has neo-Nazi militias incorporated into its armed forces was highly likely, but the West keeps repeating its same mistakes over and over," says Parry. "Representatives in Congress have even begun to call for monitoring and oversight of the arsenal being sent to Ukraine after experts warned about their possible end-use in illegal trade. Shouldn't they have thought of this before voting to authorise the security assistance?"
Economic Problems Accelerating West's Desire to Exit the Conflict
"The average American is feeling the effects of the anti-Russian sanctions at the gas pump and at the grocery store, and they have to begin to wonder if it's all worth it," remarks Parry. "As Ukraine's defeat becomes inescapable in the coming weeks and months, the economic situation is probably going to continue to get worse domestically. As the economic situation worsens in the US, this could have big implications in the 2022 mid-terms with a possible flip in control of the House."
