Naked Capitalism
A Marine’s Assessment of Russia’s Military “Operation” in Ukraine (a “Profound Appreciation of All Three Realms in Which Wars Are Waged”) (This has been speculative because the article involved is behind a wall. Lambert attempts to track this down with some success. When I first published a link to it, I did to and although I could not access the article, I did determine that this was an author there and there was a such a series. I was able to access another article in the series. So I was reasonably sure this article is genuine. Certainly, the media would be able to determine this if they had cared to pursue it, which none have so far.)

When is Ritter going to admit that his earlier assessment--that US and NATO weapons would fundamentally change the war--was correct?

Peter Pan said...

He said that Russia would have to fully mobilize their military - and they haven't.

They're going slow, they're going artillery, and not exploiting air power.

When we hear the casualty ratio is running at 30:1 in Russia's favour, how is that sustainable for Ukraine?
