Just Monday we were discussing the “new phase” of the Neocon’s war on Russia. That phrase was coined by Doug Macgregor in an interview with Glenn Diesen, in which Macgregor stated that Ukraine is no longer capable of offensive action, and that the “new phase” he foresaw would feature American involvement at an even deeper level. What Macgregor had in mind was this. The Neocons are desperate to get Russia to accept a “frozen conflict”, i.e., defeat and abandonment of the goals of the Special Military Operation (SMO). Their scheme for accomplishing that pie in the sky goal is to use long (or longish) range strike weapons to inflict damage on Russia proper (mostly in Crimea?), while pressuring Zelensky to forget our past aid guarantees, forget “as long as it takes”, and reach out to the Russians. Among all the difficulties of this scheme it’s hard to disagree with Zelensky’s publicly expressed opinion: The Russians will certainly recognize this as an admission of defeat by NATO and its Ukraine proxy—and will laugh it off.
If Russian air defense consistently achieves 95% or greater coverage then to me that’s a significant psychological blow to US and NATO war gamesmanship.
Continuation of this stellar pace will in turn lead to heightened escalation or quicken the surrender.
Who thinks these assh*les were served bugs?
It's so depressing how in such a short space of time the hubris of the declining Empire has accelerated its decline. Horses for senators and a fine tune on a fiddle. Imbecilic patriarchy.. Interesting times.
As an armchair warrior and student of blitzkrieg warfare, I've often been impatient with Vlad's incremental way of war. However, you have to hand it to him, it's worked brilliantly. Every day sees a new split in the carapace of Western "unity". It's true that the Polish government might indeed by acting at the behest of the neocons, but maybe too it's just election pressure. As you state above, this war is less popular in Poland with everyday that passes.

@POTUS has determined that he would not provide ATACMs to Ukraine, but he has also not taken it off the table in the future — Jake Sullivan.
