Posted on 09/21/2023 3:52:14 PM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky gave a basically upbeat assessment of Ukraine’s long-awaited “counteroffensive” against invading Russian forces but conceded “nobody knows” if there will be a major breakthrough this year in an interview with CNN on Tuesday.
Zelensky added that he thinks “we will have more success” in the coming year, following a slower-than-expected start for the big counteroffensive. As in several other recent interviews, he disputed criticism that Ukraine’s push has deteriorated into a stalemate, pointing to gains made by his forces in the east of the country.

Of course it is!
I think he made a true statement
no one knows
But what about all the FR posts claiming Ukrainian victories? I thought the Russian fleet was all but wiped out.
This whole Ukraine thing is a huge con job. We are being conned by rich people to support a fiction so that they can leech billions of dollars for themselves. They are relying on people like Denise Davidov and Reverend Mother to keep up the part where Ukraine has a chance to win. It doesn’t matter to the rich whether Ukraine actually wins as long as they don’t lose because losing is the end of the game. As far as winning the likelihood is miniscule at best, but anything is possible.
“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”
“Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”
“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity”
“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”
“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected .”
“Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.”
And finally, a note for Russia:
“There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.”

Do you oppose everything in that picture just because Nanzi is in it?

I kept looking for that part saying “GIBS-ME-DAT BILLIONS”. Must be in a later addition of the Art of War.
Tell your BFF to at least put on a damn suit and tie if he's going to visit our nation's capital and beg for our tax dollars. Who does he think he is, Fetterman?
Ka-Boom. Baby rabbits. Monetized videos and Twitters channels aplenty. And one remembers, recalls and cites an "authoritative voice":
"The ‘PUTIN-Biden-Clinton-Obama’ cartel did used Ukraine as a FRONT to stage their money-laundering by using Russian agents embedded BY PUTIN in the Ukraine government: Ukrainian deep-state!
President Zelensky is still trying to remove Ukraine CORRUPT “deep state created by Putin!”
It is from a later addition. "The Art of the Fog of War," by Hillary Clinton, with a foreword by Barry and epilogue by Joe.
The one Kim Carnes song I actually like.
Good one! ;-)
I oppose giving the Gay Ukraine Dictator more of our Money.
The way I sees it-— The war will not last much longer—mouths perhaps—not years. The Offensive will end with the first rains and snows. Poland—the really gung ho nation in Europe-—really ready to fight Russia—has stopped sending weapons to Mr. Zelenskyy because he insulted them. When you lose Poland you lose Europe. Germany is only One election away from pulling the plug, same with France. Once Macon is dumped, they will be out—they have their hands full in Africa. Italy will follow Frances lead—and change is ready in England. How long can the USA hold up the war with elections coming up? Trump and RFK Jr. as Peace Candidates—will keep this issue alive. No, six months is my estimate—UNLESS something happens to change the dynamic. like “Russia” Nukes Poland (really the CIA/Mi6 with Zelenskyy’s help) or a “Russian MiG shoots down an airliner full of children—(or an Iranian blowns up Trump as revenge) Anything can—and will—happen.
I was actually thinking on behalf of the nation, a full refund is in order.
“Glory to Urine.” LOL
