On the fierce battlefield of Ukraine, all rules are thrown aside in the unfolding dirty war. The Great American Empire, which has reigned supreme since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1992 and boasts a legacy of independence dating back to 1776, refuses to accept defeat without dragging Russia down with it. The ramifications of this conflict extend beyond Ukraine, engulfing neighbouring nations and the European economy. General Mark Milley, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, has openly declared America’s support for Ukraine, providing arms, money, equipment and intelligence. As Senator Lindsey Graham has noted, this war is seen as the most cost-effective venture for the US and the one that warrants the least support from the White House. Under these circumstances, the West has made it clear to Ukraine that it must be prepared for a protracted war of attrition until Russia relents, well beyond the first year of fighting.
It has become clear that the United States will not cease hostilities until Russia withdraws from Ukrainian soil. Several critical factors are driving this strategic decision, including the unshakeable morale of the Ukrainian people, their enduring sense of national unity and their deep-rooted hostility to Russia. In addition, Europe is standing firmly by America’s side, regardless of the mounting casualties in its own ranks.
Consequently, the casualties, material devastation and financial resources poured into the Ukrainian war effort are seen as collateral damage in the great war between the mighty forces of Russia and America. These include the bombing of critical infrastructure such as the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline linking Russia and Germany, air strikes on Moscow and the Kremlin, repeated attacks on Russian territory, the attempt to destroy the Crimean bridge, the targeted assassination of philosopher Alexander Dugin’s daughter by a car bomb, the bombing of the Nova Kakhovka dam, and the expansion of the conflict into Russian-majority cities in Ukraine and even within Russian borders. These actions are designed to provoke Russia into sending more troops, further entangling it in the war, increasing its losses and fuelling internal dissent against its leadership.
