Pentagon Already Sees Ukraine War Going Well Past 2023

We've not so much as reached one full month into 2023, and the United States' top ranking general is already predicting the war in Ukraine will surely not end this year.

"Senior US officials are urging Ukraine to hold off on launching a major offensive against Russian forces until the latest supply of weaponry is in place and training has been provided, a top Biden administration official says," according to one international report.

This was followed by: "Speaking to the Reuters news agency on the condition of anonymity, the official said the US was sticking to its decision not to provide Abrams tanks to Ukraine."

Again, 2023 has barely started, and here we are... the Pentagon expects this war to be stalemated and keep grinding on well into 2024.

Sadly, the casualties on either side will continue to mount. The Western allies will inevitably for the time being continue to embark on a massive expansion of their respective defense budgets...
