There are exactly 2 people in charge, Zelensky and Putin. Not Blinken or Milley. Not Biden. No one outside of the 2 actors in the war. War is indeed chaos and even the most intricate plan doesn't survive contact with the enemy. The only thing anyone outside of Russia or Ukraine can do is apply pressure to Russia or Ukraine to influence their actions and decisions. No one can force or dictate to them what should happen or what they should do. And yes, attacking bomber bases deep inside Russia that have been the source for many, many bombings into Ukraine is a valid military target and many think should have been done long before. Moscow was not struck even though Ukraine had/has the ability to do so. That says that they are very much in control, they're making very calculated plans and carrying them out.Blinken and Milley have both reiterated that Zelensky should negotiate and not strike deep into Russia. But somehow strategic bomber airbases (that have been attacking Ukranian infrastructure) as much as 800km inside Russia have been repeatedly struck. Moscow is in range. Who is in charge here? Who is kidding whom? Is this all going according to some carefully engineered plan? Or is it out of control chaos leading to unimagined horrors?
The latest thinking according to the New York Times:
Ukraine is literally fighting for their lives and you're advocating that we should force them to cut off their arm and leg, give those to their bully neighbor and be quiet about it. How can you not see that it is wrong to do so?
