That headline speaks for itself and reads like it’s meant for a sketch comedy scene from Saturday Night Live. Nevertheless, it is reality.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will be the keynote speaker at the Future Force Capabilities Conference and Exhibition, which takes place on September 21st. The annual event is hosted by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA).
Zelenskyy won’t be the only Ukrainian lecturing the bureaucrats in the U.S. military. Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov will also speak at the event.
According to a Newsmax article by Nick Koutsobinas, Zelenskyy’s speech will likely be centered around a plea for more weapons. A $675 million weapons package was cleared less than a week ago, yet Zelenskyy is already primed to ask for more. As the saying goes, give an inch and they’ll take a mile.
His audience will include major players in the defense industry like Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. Those are decision makers, important people. There’s no reason to believe they won’t listen to Zelenskyy with open ears.
To date, the United States has given roughly $60 billion dollars to Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The money has been gifted without clearly defined objectives for its use. That shows, with our lack of positive results in Ukraine as evidence. Speaking of “clearly defined objectives,” ‘defending democracy’ remains the only explanation as to why we got involved in the first place.
Lindsey Graham and co. are just getting started. In August, the Department of Defense (DOD) announced they’re sending Ukraine’s fearless leader another cool $3 billion (hard to believe). According to the official DOD website it will be the largest donation yet.
America has always been a generous country, it’s one of the many things that makes us unique. We’ve been in a position to give because of our economic strength and governmental stability. America no longer possesses those two attributes and congress shouldn’t continue printing and spending on other nations as is if we do.
