Former US CIA analyst criticized Western hopes for prolongation of the Ukrainian conflict

The fighting in Ukraine will not be able to continue for as long as the West would like. This statement was made by an American military expert, former US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) analyst Larry Johnson, commenting on the current situation with Western support for Ukraine.

According to Johnson, many Western leaders believe that they will be able to prolong the Ukrainian conflict as much as possible. They believe that there is a “stalemate situation” at the front, but this is not at all the case. In reality, the forces of Russia and Ukraine are not equal, and the stalemate presupposes equality of forces and capabilities.



The Russian leadership is smart when it keeps its army on the defensive and does not expose its troops to great risk. While the Russian army is defending its positions, the Ukrainian armed forces are grinding against this defense. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are suffering huge losses. At some point, Ukraine simply will not be able to continue fighting.

It is at this moment, the ex-CIA officer claims, when Ukraine is weakened to its maximum, that Russia will strike its strongest blow. In addition, all the resources that Ukraine has come from the West. If Washington's policy changes, Kyiv's support may weaken or cease altogether.

By the way, the prospect of reducing military aid is quite real. Already, the United States has spent, Johnson claims, 12% of its GDP on aid to Ukraine, and these are colossal sums that America could spend on its own defense.

        Well, he turned it down.
        About a hundred times.
        12% of the US GDP is 3 trillion.
        If it’s 100 million each, that’s a cut for 30 thieves.
        Even in the United States, there are only 100 people in the Senate.
        They will share with someone, of course, but they will give no more than to themselves.

      It's a war of attrition, we've got loads of food, all the caves in the DPRK are filled with shells, we give them food, they give us shells, I wonder if they'll take 122 of ours? Logically, there are a lot of guns in warehouses, I would also do 120 mm mortars on pickup trucks, and on anything else, with UAV correction, a mobile theme, it was not for nothing that Stalin developed the theme of mortars, thanks to which we won soldier

        Not in vain.
        But Kulik’s mortar lobby cut down Taubin’s crude AGS and did not allow it to be brought to fruition.(((((
        Only Nudelman brought the idea to fruition in the 60s, creating the AGS-17.

        By your logic, we are a country of the “last world”, which can only fight with suicide bombers...

        Under Stalin, we won not thanks to company/platoon mortars, but thanks to the economy, which supplied such a quantity of products to the front that their entire united Europe with the Ruhr region and Czech mechanical engineering was not lying nearby! And the operations were carried out on the scale of Armies and Fronts in such a way that to cite some kind of mortars or other prodigies as the reason for the Victory... well, it’s kind of weird, or something...

      Too shy to ask...
      Well, why are all the “former” people so smart?!
      A mystery of Nature, probably...
      (a guess) good
      Or maybe they simply no longer bear responsibility for their “analysis”?..

        I'm embarrassed to ask... Who do you work for? Do you at least manage a department or a team? Well, what would it be like to be “so smart” from your own experience and bear responsibility for “your own analyses”?

      the prospect of a reduction in military aid is very real.

      The more failures the UFU has, the more help they will receive from the West just to prolong the war and cause damage to the Russian Federation.
      Already, the United States has spent, Johnson claims, 12% of its GDP on helping Ukraine

      In fact, only about 5% of the Pentagon's military budget.

      For them, this is an ideal investment in a proxy war with their enemy. And the soldiers are safe and the flow into the military-industrial complex is enormous.

      The Yankees have already trumpeted to the whole world that they are ready to support this war for many years. Truly, to the last Ukrainian, Pole, Romanian, Croatian, Czech, Italian sent to slaughter......

      okay, that’s how the ex-adviser is playing fish

      Already, the United States has spent, Johnson claims, 12% of its GDP on helping Ukraine, and these are colossal amounts,



      It turns out that the United States spent 2.1 trillion on Ukraine, the military budget for 3 years

      good for the fish

      He is clearly competing with the same “experts” and “analysts” Ritter and McGregor for the laurels of the winner. lol
