War Is A Racket. Like most truisms nobody really knows who said it first but veteran US political maverick Ron Paul is being credited for resurrecting the phrase is one of his blistering denunciations of the current kerfuffle in Ukraine.
Every war is a huge opportunity for the corporate businesses collectively known as the Military - Industrial Complex to make obscenely bloated profits from us long - suffering taxpayers as they first supply the weapons and explosives to destroy a nation and then the building materials and construction equipment needed to rebuild it.The war on Ukraine is no different, the USA and its NATO allies could end the conflict tomorrow by halting the supply of arms and ammo to Ukraine and demanding that Russia ceases hostilities pending a United Nations moderated peace deal, but the war is such a great a money-making racket for weapons manufacturers in the USA, UK and European Union and for politicians such a good way of diverting public attention from the mess they have made of the global economy, energy policy, food supplies, management of the 'pandemc' crisis and the obvious hoax that is climate change, nobody wants it to end. The elites are perfectly happy to keep allowing Ukrainian soldiers to die on the battlefield as long as more weapons contracts are funded by the governments of the world and public attention is focused on the war rather than the plethora of cock - ups that would otherwise be top of the news.
Raytheon and Lockheed Martin seem to be more than willing to keep
pocketing profits, down to the last remaining Ukrainian soldier, even if
the weapons being shipped to Ukraine and largely destroyed by Russia’s
interdiction efforts. Racal electronics and Rolls Royce will keep supplying military technology for as long as someone is willing to pay. It's easy money.
Russia has abandoned its assault with tanks and infantry and is now focusing missile strikes on Ukraine’s railroad infrastructure in order to disrupt deliveries of weapons and ammo from western nations. This is actually smart because Ukraine’s railroads use a “wide gauge” rail width which is incompatible with most other European nations (Ukraine’s rail system was built by the former Soviet Union and uses the 5 ft width, which is common across the former Soviet republics). Importantly, this means that NATO cannot simply replace Ukraine’s locomotives and rolling stock because the wheel widths are incompatible.
This is why alt_media and even some mainstream media sites whose readers have had enough of the usual stream of Russophobic propaganda are reporting Ukraine troops are
running out of ammo and other supplies, desperate for air cover which
isn’t coming any time soon because supplying the neo - Nazi nutters in Kiev with military aircraft would be seen as an act of war against Russia by the nation that supplied them. And nobody wants to face the consequences.
Russia’s decisive victory in Ukraine is all but assured (in spite of daily mainstream media reports that Ukraine is winning,), and shipments of more artillery, tanks and drones from western nations won’t make a dent in the real situation on the ground. Besides, Ukraine is running out of soldiers too, while the clown Zelinsky claims billions of Russian soldiers have lost their lives while only a handful of Ukrainian troops have died, independent western reporters embedded in Ukraine say that while Russian losses have been heavy, Ukrainian casualties are far higher .
No doubt Zelensky is close to surrendering, but the Biden regime, supported by UK, France and the United Nations is trying to prevent that from happening in order to try to make sure Ukraine’s bioweapons laboratories (and all their records) don’t fall into the hands of Putin.
Of course, the delusional woketards in the USA still think Russia is losing and their forces are in full retreat. Imagine their surprise when the entire map of Ukraine gets redrawn soon, as the country is partitioned with a new, Russian speaking nation being created east of the Dneiper and a land corridor from Russian teritory to Crimes taking away most of Ukraine's southern coast. That’s going to be a wake-up call for the war worshippers who are hysterically calling on their governments to give Ukraine the weapons they need to escalate the war.
