Secretary of Defense James Mathis is trying to gin up support for US military involvement in the Ukraine:
Defense Secretary James Mattis said Thursday that the Trump administration is “actively reviewing” whether to provide weapons to Ukrainians who are fighting Russian-backed rebels.
“On the defensive lethal weapons, we are actively reviewing it,” Mattis said during a press conference alongside Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
“I will go back, now, having seen the current situation, and be able to inform the secretary of State and the president in very specific terms what I recommend for the direction ahead.”
There is a permanent war party in Washington, DC, AKA, “The Blob,” and they haven’t won a war, since 1945, and they haven’t made the world a better place, or had a diplomatic success in almost as long a time.
They were the ones, in the person of Victoria Nuland, who fomented a coup and a civil war in the Ukraine in the first place.
And now these idiots are back in command of our foreign policy.
What the hell, it’s just more blood and treasure sacrificed on the altar of pointless American hegemony.
