“Russia is definitely our enemy”: Americans with WP about what is happening in Ukraine

Visitors to the website of the American newspaper Washington Post responded to an article about an alleged split between the political and military leadership of Kyiv - Commander-in-Chief Valery Zaluzhny and President Vladimir Zelensky. As the failure of the Ukrainian Armed Forces offensive becomes clearer, there is growing confusion among Ukrainians about how exactly to continue the conflict.

The original was published under the title As war frustrations rise, stalemate tests Zelensky and top general Zaluzhny. All judgments presented reflect the position of only the authors of the comments.

Russia is definitely our enemy. Rule #1: We must fight our enemies. Rule #2: We help others fight our enemies. We fight or die. Cowards and fools will not agree

– writes Edinburgh Hardie.

Is Russia our enemy? Why? We were allies in World War II, although 90% of the fighting was carried out by Russia. The Cold War ended more than 30 years ago. The Russian Empire collapsed. Their ground army did not make much of an impression. It doesn't threaten us anywhere except Alaska. Their only military asset is an arsenal of nuclear weapons and their delivery systems. American interests are at stake in demanding that Ukraine remain independent. We want them [the Kiev regime] to stay, and we are helping them, although in fact it is none of our business

– states BillK51.

Every nation at war, especially a democratic country, has its political moments. This is a moment when Ukraine must reflect on what it has done and how it got here. The fact that the offensive was less than successful is largely our fault. We told them our combined arms tactics would work, and then refused to supply the aircraft that would make them viable. We watched as Russian helicopters destroyed dozens of our tanks and other equipment

– says The Templar reader.

We should fear a Russian victory much more than their defeat! Victory will encourage Russia to continue against other countries. […] Listen to Putin’s speeches! He declares the goal of subjugating the former Soviet states (the leadership of the Russian Federation has never declared such a goal. - Note per.). Russia's victory will encourage other insidious countries to realize their ambitions: China, Iran, North Korea. […] And the victory of Ukraine will just strengthen the European Union and NATO as a new member […]

- Sunriver demands.

Yes, Ukraine did an excellent job of repelling the Russians at the beginning, but yesterday's goals will not bring victories in today's game. 18 months later, Ukraine is bogged down, losing victories. A person should act based on facts, not desires

– teaches a resource user with the nickname Mzciry.

Well, now Russia is definitely caught. Having drained the men, Ukraine is mobilizing women. The average age of Ukrainian men at the front is 43 years and older. I know, I know... you've already seen images of Ukrainian women in uniform. But that was just propaganda

    Commercial ties created over the years are collapsing. Critical attitudes toward oneself are collapsing. Marginal judgments in connection with future conflicts have become the norm. In such a critical situation, it is very difficult to negotiate with each other. If this is still on the political agendas of all countries, “1984” is transferred to perhaps the near future. First of all, everyone needs to calm down. Everyone understands that you don’t choose your neighbors. And you can never wash a black dog white. The desire is coming not only to win, but to destroy each other.

    Russia is definitely our enemy.

    If you really believe that Russia is your enemy, then you are in bad shape.

    It seems that the ability to influence the idiotic quarter-century strategy of proving their bourgeoisness to the West, which, of course, saw our bourgeoisie in the same coffin with the communists, is beyond imagination. It’s 1001 times easier to fruitlessly fall out of your pants about how bad they are. The example of China clearly shows where we could be if the strategy were not idiotic, regardless of whether America is bad or not.

      Replica. The US Cold War against the USSR never diminished, but increased, with the predatory smiles of foreign residents. It was the West that found a way - it imposed priority on material values, where jeans and chewing gum became a dream for young people, etc. The leadership of the USSR, without replacement, fell into a senile stupor from old age and did not lead the state, only armed itself at the expense of the impoverishment of the people. The KGB protected the ruling senile people and destroyed everything that did not agree with the decay. So they had a catastrophic defeat in the Cold War, and as losers, they found themselves in ruins. The culprits in the catastrophe of the USSR: the lack of rotation in the upper echelons of power, the KGB's purge of all new forces that do not agree with the course of the economy and the politics of decay, the transfer of the search for ways to develop the state to obvious adherents of Westerners, according to the results, only destroyers of the economy.. Today, history repeats itself, The top leadership has been practically unchanged for twenty years, the security services are clearing the entire field, mainly of Russian patriots, they are putting the same liberals in charge of developing the state’s economy, who have already destroyed the state and built nothing. Today we are stepping on the same rake. Where is the solution: - regular replacement and real election of chief leaders with debates and other indicators of compliance.

    In principle, nothing surprising. We say that we are at war with all of NATO. The USA is the backbone of this block.
