Therefore: it wasn't me who was "Unable or lazy to follow up for yourself" - I did the necessary. You, however, instead of summarizing yourself the Matlock article, as objectivity would demand, you presented instead its RT rendering, while being fully aware of RT's nature as a propaganda outlet. Objectivity is, visibly, not your approach. Should be obvious to anyone by now. "Avoiding to link to the report itself". False. I linked the entire report here, a few days ago. As I thought, you don't open and read and think over my suggested links, but prefer to attack the 'book cover' while evading the conceptual contents.

But any increase in U.S. military arms and advice to Ukraine would need to be carefully calibrated to increase the costs to Russia of sustaining its existing commitment without provoking a much wider conflict in which Russia, by reason of proximity, would have significant advantages Edited October 20, 2022 by whYNOT Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
