The war is going to continue for “as long as it takes” for Ukraine to defeat Russia. Ukraine defines victory as recapturing every inch of Ukrainian soil including Crimea.
You’re going to have to suck it up and put up with inflation and high gas prices until that happens. This is about the preservation of liberal democracy and the Liberal World Order. Donbas is worth it. Crimea is worth it.
“Russian forces on Sunday captured Lysychansk, the last city in the Luhansk region of the Donbas that was still under Ukrainian control. …”
BTW, Joe is sending another $820 million to Ukraine, which continues to lose ground in Donbas to Russia. Luhansk is now under near total Russian control.
“U.S. President Joe Biden has pledged to provide financial and military aid for as long as necessary to prevent Ukraine’s defeat, he told reporters at the conclusion of the NATO summit in Madrid. …”
This giant sucking sound will also go on indefinitely … at least until Ukraine collapses OR voters throw out the Democrats in which case Ukraine is cut off and also collapses.
