Such as ?

You know what , even if they wanted to the options are simply not there, if the West wants to send "whatever Ukraine wants" it would probably in the form of sending their remaining battle tanks, ammo, and everything, which is already in short supply for their own defense. The UK has like 150 tanks in its entire inventory, sending all to Ukraine is simply not an option.

Ukraine doesn’t need tanks. It needs long range missiles, drones and fighter jets, exactly what it never received from NATO.

Look at the way the US waged war when it faced a more serious adversary, like against Serbia or Iraq. It employed airpower and missiles to destroy everything before using any tanks. Sending tanks without air dominance is just a stupid waste of tanks.

The already have those in the form of TB-2,GMLRS, LJDAM, Storm Shadows and ATACMS.

Which is why they would never have what they wanted in the first place, to do so the U.S. must not only transfer the F-16s but also its AWACS, JSTARS, Compass calls, Tankers, BACN and many more. Without those, the F-16 effect will be minimal.

This is what led me to believe the transfer of F-16 will be the highest and final form of major arms transfer to Ukraine, and if those F-16 fails to deliver or completely change the calculus of war, there will be less and less incentive for the West to keep Ukraine standing.

Guys, as it seems the UK/US is preparing another major confrontation with Yemen, once the shooting starts, it will not be over until Houthi is removed physically from Yemen and forced back into the mountains.

Looks like while struggling to supply Ukraine with munitions, they diverted what is available to israel and now are on their way to expending even crazier amount of munitions in Yemen.

Which makes Ukraine even lower in the priority list.

The Houthis are god awfully stupid & Brainless

If there is one thing you DON'T mess with it's international shipping.

Even the most war wary Westerner is going to support their Goverments putting massive Hurt on the Houthis over this.

Don't mess with an American consumers Amazon order. That is literally sacred religion in the West lol

Hello again after a long time, trolls of the West and Russia.

Poor people who think they know everything but just spread propaganda. Yes, whose prediction, foresight and strategy came true. of course it's me.

Pentagon and his man Zelensky destroyed Ukraine. Who do you think will rebuild Ukraine? noone.

Russia has now seen the truth, the West has very little power. The West was defeated for the first time in Ukraine. Europe and the USA don't even have ammunition left to fight.

Russia made the expected move against Israel against Ukraine and it was very effective. It is likely that Russia will want to open 1 or 2 more fronts to the west. The Pentagon's Middle East outpost is also being demolished.

The beautiful China dreams of the pentagon are turning into nightmares. It seems that the Pentagon will not be able to make China look like Iraq.

The Middle East will be left to Turkey.

Russians will not be limited to Ukraine, they will want to advance into Europe again. They still have both political and military power in this. Economic and political crises are imminent in the West.

You are very lucky guys. You learn a lot from me. :))

Does the US desire an end to the war in Ukraine?

The primary objective of this conflict is not merely to bring about the cessation of hostilities in Ukraine and recover Ukrainian land occupied by Russia. Instead, it aims to weaken Russia through both military engagement and economic sanctions. Ukrainian forces contribute manpower, while the US and various European nations supply military equipment. Concealed motivations on the part of the West include testing new weapons, facilitating future marketing endeavors, and asserting geopolitical influence.

The financial toll on the US in prosecuting this war is estimated at $70 to $80 billion, with additional support from other European countries totaling around $40 billion. Tragically, the loss of approximately 200,000 Ukrainian young men and the destruction of civilian infrastructure may result in costs reaching $100 billion.

Russia is also paying a substantial price in terms of human lives and material resources, albeit with a comparatively smaller economy than the US and Europe. To sustain the conflict, Russia relies on selling oil and gas in the global market.

Can the US and Europe achieve their goals?

The prospect of Russia's defeat or surrender in this war appears highly unlikely. Although the ongoing conflict inflicts damage upon Russia, its large population and significant oil export customer base provide resilience. The war can persist as long as the West is willing. Countries such as the US and the UK, aligned in support, face upcoming elections where anti-war sentiments among voters may influence a reassessment of their stance.

The anticipation is that a subdued drone war will persist until the next US elections. The ultimate fate of the conflict will hinge on the policy decisions of the next occupant of the White House.

This War business turned out to be immensely profitable for the West and Europe. Russia Lost approximately 1/4 of its ground combat power without spilling of a drop of NATO soldier's blood. Even if USA and Europe back down now, they already got more than what could have asked for. Conventionally Russia's military will no longer be relevant for a decade or more.

For Russia the worst thing is human loses, Russia has very bad demographic but for Russian Muslims it is not a problem. I think that it is actually very good thing for the Russian Muslims.
As of military, well Russians now learned what the Westerns do not know. That's the conducting of the large scale operations, as West tested what works what nit, Russian did that and much more.
If Russians use the experience properly by the end of the decade, they will have pretty decent chances to match to the extent Western alliance.
Russia can always mobilise the population for low payed work.

Footage of the strike of the Russian Kh-47M2 Kinzhal hypersonic missile in Ukraine has been published. The rocket's speed is enormous, about 14,000 kilometers per hour. At the final stage of the flight, the missile reduces its speed, this is done so that it can work as an active radar homing head for the missile. Without reducing the speed, under conditions of plasma formation, it is impossible for the rocket to receive satellite navigation data. The impact of the Kinzhal missile is also shown in slow motion, otherwise it is difficult to see; the video was filmed by a resident of Kyiv.
