This is what “fighting Russia down to the last Ukrainian” — to recall Prof. Mearsheimer’s sad prediction — looks like in realty. To quote Reuters: “Tony Bloomfield, operations director at the British military charity for limbless veterans Blesma, said it was generally extremely rare for soldiers who have lost a limb to return to conflict, but this was happening in Ukraine.”

Biden would be hit hard in November 2024 by the lousy optics of a Ukraine defeat — hence the young Ukrainian heroes who are expected to dutifully line up and feed themselves into the meat grinder, offering up their short lives to the worthy cause of Biden’s re-election effort.
