Pentagon leaks info to media on Russia war
While the media and some members of Congress cry for a no fly zone, i.e. the start of WWIII. The Pentagon has released technical analysis to the media, to help counter the propaganda on what Russia is doing in Ukraine and the reality of civilian and other collateral damage.
The mainstream media is determined to suggest that Putin is indiscriminately killing civilians and targeting civilian areas. Painting Putin as a leader gone mad and destroying another country. However the Pentagon analysis are trying to understand what is really going on to better assess any responses. In this the Pentagon understand that it could easily have been an all guns blazing affair and explain that if Russia wanted to, it could flatten Kiev in a few days if it so desired.
This of course is true. If Putin wanted to conduct an American style invasion like what occurred in Iraq, It could do so. But what is going on is a carefully calculated soft approach.
“I know it’s hard … to swallow that the carnage and destruction could be much worse than it is,’ says the DIA analyst. ‘But that’s what the facts show. This suggests to me, at least, that Putin is not intentionally attacking civilians, that perhaps he is mindful that he needs to limit damage in order to leave an out for negotiations.’”
Russia uses war as an extension of diplomacy, where we are used to war being the result of a failure in diplomacy.
The Narrative is Putin is trying to rebuild the USSR. This ignores the fact that the break away states have been at war in Ukraine ever since the “revolution” in 2014.
The Azov army has killed over 14,000 Russians in Donbas over this time and had amassed 60,000 troops close to the area prior to Russia stepping in and cutting these troops off from Kiev. It makes you wonder what 60,000 of Ukraines most lethal soldiers were doing in the Donbas.
While Europe continues to dig itself a deeper hole trying to dictate to Russia, at least the US heads of army are trying their best to stop escalation into a war that ends badly for everyone.
