Will the Americans supply Patriot systems to Ukraine?


The Biden administration is preparing to send Patriot systems to Ukraine that can shoot down both missiles and aircraft. This is the most advanced weaponry that Ukraine has ever received from Western curators. As early as March 2022, the Pentagon denied that such a thing was possible:


The supply of Patriot systems to Ukraine is not discussed, since for this we will have to send soldiers to control them. In other words, American troops will directly fight Russia. Congress won't go for it. The American people don't like it either.

But despite the huge risks, now the US is going to do it in the next military aid package. This is no longer a hypothetical problem, but a reality. And the Democrats are aggressively lobbying the accelerated delivery of Patriot air defense systems in the US Congress.

But how the Russian Federation will respond to this, most Americans will not know, since Russian media are banned in the United States, and censorship there is like in North Korea. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry warned that the consequences would be inevitable. How concerned are American Democrats that the supply of these systems will lead to a serious escalation of the conflict, in which the United States will now be directly involved? Not really. Politician Adam Bennett Schiff said recently that Armageddon isn't too high a price to pay for protecting democracy in Ukraine:

I believe that yes, the risk of a direct collision is growing. And I don't think it's a big deal, because the Biden administration has done an excellent job of keeping the situation under control. But do you see how Putin continues to brandish a nuclear club? This is what is really dangerous. But this cannot scare us away from further comprehensive support for Ukraine.

But such a Democratic attitude scares the most popular political anchor in the United States, Tucker Carlson. He states that practically everything that the Americans were told from the very beginning about this conflict was a lie, and then continues:

Let's take a quick run. They said the sanctions would destroy the Russian the economy. Joe Biden said this in his address to the people, and this summer the Russian ruble showed a 7-year high. And a couple of months ago, the Russians posted a huge increase in trade volumes. Russian propaganda? This is an economic factor. Our policy doesn't work, it's counterproductive. From January to September 2022, Russia's trade volume increased by $127 billion compared to the same period last year, twice the previous record in 2008. Here is the result of the sanctions. Remember how we were told that sanctions would destroy Putin?

    They will deliver only in one case, if they agree with us that we will not hit them (as with bridges). Because these "Patriots" will be before the first "Iskander" Yes, and "mopeds" ("Geran") are also not taken. There has already been a precedent in Saudi Arabia when a swarm of Iranian-made UAVs smashed oil storage facilities, and the guarding Patriots did not fire a single missile. Either they didn’t spot it, or they didn’t begin to spend expensive missiles on penny drones.

    Of course, they will also supply the "Patriot" and further even more powerful weapons. For the Russian Federation does not react in any way to the expansion of outsourced deliveries, except for empty grumblings under the nose of S. Lavrov and "At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry warned that the consequences would be inevitable," how many such warnings were earlier, dozens, and no consequences, soon all feet will wipe on these Russian Foreign Ministry statements...

    Maybe they will put it on. We started with junk, and slowly deliver newer and newer systems, little by little, so as not to scare.

    Well, PR has "grown" - other analysts and reports give other numbers. Not so good ...

    You are already crossing all borders, in general, the "Repoter" has been littered with propaganda ...

    These Patriots will not affect in any way, well, if 2-3 missiles are shot down, it’s not a fact. We were told about the javelins from all the irons that they would lead the panheads to victory, then there were bayraktars, himars, axes. Yes, they create problems, but they don’t fundamentally change anything, just as these patriots won’t change. Our problems are created by those who sit at the top and don’t hit the supply routes, but only draw red lines, which the enemies have not only crossed, but wiped out so that they are not visible .

    Yes, this is the reality, but it does not involve huge risks. These are all words...
