Not the outcome US wanted in Ukraine
The Neo-Conservative managers of United States foreign policy assumed that their long hoped for war over Ukraine would be over by now. They assumed that with massive economic sanctions; absolute isolation from the West; and a NATO trained Ukrainian military that Russia would soon cry “uncle.” Their fantasy was: 1.) the collapse of the Russian economy; 2.) the Russian populace rising up to overthrow President Vladimir Putin; and, 3.) capitulation by a new leadership in Russia to United States dictates.
As the world approaches the one-year mark in this stage of the war over Ukraine (That war actually started in February, 2014 in the wake of the United States-EU orchestrated overthrow of the democratically-elected Viktor Yanukovcyh Government.), none of what they hoped for has happened, just the opposite: 1.) Putin is still in power; 2.) the Russian economy is still in tact and prospering; 3.) Putin's has over 80 percent popular support; and, 4.) countries representing 75 percent of the world's population have refused to go along with the United States' project.
Moreover, after a re-organization of its military and a mobilization, Moscow is on the verge of launching an offensive to win the war decisively. Biden, the Neo-conservatives, the Rand Corporation, NATO and the EU all know this; although they are still telling their publics that “light is at the end of the tunnel.” It is going to be very interesting to see how the United States deals with this latest failure in its attempt at controlling the world.
