Addendum: Merry Christmas, Ukraine – Media Report Administration Approval to Supply FGM-148 Javelin to Ukraine


Anonymous expert compilation, analysis, and reporting. 

This is surely a poke in the eye to Russia.

Blunting the Russian argument of “US plan to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine will fuel conflict, Russian diplomat says“, one has to ask, how do defensive weapons fuel a conflict?  Russia is arguing for argument’s sake. 

Domestically this should wipe out accusations of Russian collusion.

Reports are correct, Ukraine is getting Javelins.

The Russians have reacted quickly with a tirade of the usual toxic nonsense.

And they immediately broke the Christmas ceasefire.

We have yet to see the Western appeaser camp respond – they can be expected to be loud and persistent.

Russia really needs a repeat of the Tsushima experience, except on a much larger scale. It seems only events of that kind spur any productive social evolution in Russia.
