Russia’s SMO was virtually won in days after launch on Feb. 24.
Its military superiority and tactical competence were evident straightaway.
US/Western regimes, know-nothing puppet Zelensky, and MSM delusional claims otherwise reflect whistling past the graveyard.
Ignoring indisputable reality on the ground, they continue anyway.
WaPo editors keep finding new ways to embarrass themselves.
Pretending that already won Russian “victory” in Ukraine is “fad(ing),” it was all downhill from there with rubbish like the following:
“The Russian military, mired in a war with no end in sight (sic), is attempting to resuscitate its sputtering offensive in Ukraine (sic), firing commanders (sic), splitting combat units into smaller formations (sic), and redoubling its reliance on artillery and other long-range weapons (sic).”
And this rubbish:
“After the deaths of thousands of Russian soldiers (sic) and an avalanche of failures (sic), Russian President Vladimir Putin narrowed his objectives in a campaign viewed as unsustainable, unrealistic — and likely unwinnable (sic).”
And this perversion of reality:
“Ukrainian units have not faced the morale setbacks that plague the Russians (sic).”
Russian forces “made little headway in Donbass (sic).”
And this wishful thinking refuted by reality:
“(T)here are massive morale problems within the Russian military, undermining Moscow’s goals (sic).”
There’s “refusal of some units to carry out orders (sic), as well as Russia’s failure to adequately equip and feed its forces (sic).”
Russian officials “don’t give a crap about their” soldiers (sic).
“Russian leaders may realize their military campaign is floundering but (are) still reluctant to acknowledge they are losing the war (sic)” — virtually won.
“Russian troops have been bedeviled both by their own tactical blunders (sic) and Ukraine’s potent capabilities (sic).”
No responsible editors would permit publication of the above trash, what’s polar opposite reality on the ground in Ukraine.
WaPo ignored that Biden regime war secretary Austin and joint chiefs chairman Milley called on their Russian counterparts to agree on an “immediate ceasefire in Ukraine” — on bended knee.
As explained earlier, there’s no ambiguity why.
Winners don’t want their operations halted until objectives are fully accomplished.
Losers call for ceasefire to cut their losses.
If Russia faced quagmire conditions in Ukraine, its Defense Minister Shoigu would call on his US counterpart to agree on an immediate ceasefire.
Russian forces continue to advance at the expense of badly battered and beaten Ukrainian ones.
Thousands of its elite Azov Nazi thugs were killed, wounded, or are in Russian custody as POWs.
Throughout Russia’s SMO since Feb. 24, Ukraine’s military achieved no battlefield triumphs over vastly superior Russian Federation forces.
Hundreds of their fighters are laying down their arms and surrendering — daily.
Hundreds more continue to desert.
They refuse to fight and die for a Nazi-infested regime they abhor.
Whenever claims like WaPo’s above are made, not a shred of credible evidence accompanies them — because none exists.
Russian forces continue to roll over their outgunned, outmatched, tactically inferior, poorly trained and directed largely Ukrainian conscript military.
Dire conditions forced Kiev to call up virtually untrained middle-aged reservists — because so many of its regulars are out of action.
Delusional MSM perversion of reality reports can only continue for so long.
It’s just a matter of time before Vladimir Putin and Russia’s Defense Ministry declare mission accomplished in Ukraine.
Given reality on the ground, perhaps Kiev will formally surrender before Russia’s announced triumph — to halt destruction of its military and economy more than already.
As explained before, when Moscow’s SMO ends successfully, when its demilitarization and deNazification of Ukraine is achieved, when Donbass is fully liberated from Nazified occupation, when Russia is secure from scourge of US-controlled Ukrainian fascism, MSM will likely ignore reality by changing the subject.
