The future path of this war is not a moral issue, a tactical issue or a strategic issue, it is a banking issue. The US and its wobbly NATO elites are stuck between the failed dollar and their eroded industries. They will fight a Nazified, racist war against Russia and China because they have nothing left under their emperor's clothes, and all of us will pay the price for their stupid hubris.

The arsenal of democracy is doing a booming business.

It is just the wrong business - i.e. not the business of providing military capability.

Yes, the West lavishes weapons, money and PR upon Ukraine, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

What does Russia propose to do about it?

Meanwhile, I note that The Big Winter Offensive still hasn't happened. I am concerned that the Russian leadership continues not to take this war seriously.
