Western failure as the Pentagon estimate and intelligence community had calculated economic sanctions on Russia would sink it in a financial failure in a matter of weeks. Just as with Afghanistan in 1979, the intention was to mortally wound the Kremlin and Putin. Wishing the Russian leader all awful diseases, perhaps a kind assassination, but for sure a military coup to finish off Vladimir Putin.
This type of disinformation is usually published when failure is imminent and mirrors one's very own shortcomings..
Biden, who had promised to keep the U.S. out of new wars, was determined that Putin must either be deterred or confronted, and that the U.S. must not act alone. Yet NATO was far from unified on how to deal with Moscow, and U.S. credibility was weak. [_link] pic.twitter.com/e3sB16OE41— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) August 16, 2022

Once again putting blame on European allies Germany and France who were intend to prevent the outbreak of hostilities. Reminds me of the lies in 2002/2003 to begin an illegal war in Iraq. Then too, Joe Biden was a vigorous war hawk.
This also shows a breaking of the so-called unity in NATO made under duress. Still very important the position of Turkey whether the White House manages to keep Erdogan on board.
We have seen the most staunch war supporters in London, Warsaw and Vilnius. Already today the Polish FM pushed the identical narrative. Both Paris and Berlin should not stay silent. Unfortunately Germany has a fragile coalition where the economic problems are insurmountable. How does one persuade the German people the coming hardship is to preserve freedom. ‼️ What a bull. Biden is pushing forward Trump's trade war against China and had some unfinished business with Putin's intransigence in Crimea (2014) and one year later in Syria (2015). Biden on a two decade losing streak.
Joe kept his promise not to have American boots on the ground in a new war. Exactly! Ukrainians are dying in America's proxy war. The financial costs will be charged to the EU in Brussels. Joe Biden knew for sure back in October, as the strategy was developed, that NATO members would not succeed to compromise or even do any serious talks and negotiations in Moscow. Both Biden and Johnson would veto such an effort. Complete isolation of Russia was the weapon of choice and some of the most severe sanctions ever designed.
With the Taiwan issue pursued by America's crack lawmakers, this sealed a close alliance between Moscow and Beijing. NATO lost Afghanistan to the Taliban and the US lost its foothold in Central Asia. Two decades of war and losses for nothing. The graveyard of empires turns time back to the Middle Ages.

Zelensky heeft in Oekraïne een golf van kritiek over zich heen gekregen na een interview waarin hij zei dat hij vorig najaar al `grimmige waarschuwingen' van de VS kreeg over oorlogsdreiging vanuit Rusland, maar deze niet openbaar maakte[_link]— de Volkskrant (@volkskrant) August 19, 2022

Zelensky has faced a wave of criticism in Ukraine after an interview in which he said he received "grim warnings" from the US last fall about the threat of war from Russia, but did not make them public.
He didn't need to, the warnings were all over the Internet for non-censured nations to view. 😂 the downside of an authoritarian state.
Unfortunately real life is not play acting. To start a war is quite easy in comparison to ending war. The harm done is irreparable and hate feeds emotions for decades to come. Stupidity reigns for serving self-interest of states, not "We The People."
Afghanistan - Iraq - Libya - Syria - Ukraine ... none ended well.
