«The Russians see events AS A film. WE see them AS photographs»

… Ukrainian troops are falling back all across the 600 mile front

… Russia is methodically destroying Ukrainian factories

… manufacture military tactical clothing, ammunition, drones and vehicles

… Repair facilities also have been hit and obliterated

… Robert Clark, writing in the U.K. Telegraph … blames Western leaders for Ukraine’s debacle

… continues, like many other delusional Western analysts

… insist the current state of the war is a stalemate

… when Russia is outproducing Ukraine and all of the NATO countries in tanks

… artillery shells and drones

… is building up its standing Army to the tune of 42,000 men per month

… Colonel Jacque Baud, a Swiss officer, a strategic intelligence and a former head of the United Nations peace operations doctrine

… presents a detailed breakdown of Ukraine’s hopeless task

… summarizes the problem succinctly:

… “their inability to understand the Russian approach to war”

… “the adversary is so stupidly demonized that we refrain from understanding his way of thinking”

… “The reason the Russians are better than the West in Ukraine is that they see the conflict as a process”

… “whereas we see it as a series of separate actions”

… “The Russians see events as a film. We see them as photographs”

“They see the forest, while we focus on the trees”

… “That is why we place the start of the conflict on February 24, 2022”

“or the start of the Palestinian conflict on October 7, 2023”

… “We ignore the contexts that bother us”
