The Great Ukraine Heist Isn’t Over Yet – Orange County Register

The ink was barely dry on President Biden’s signature transferring another $61 billion to the black hole called Ukraine, when the mainstream media announced that it was not the kickoff of a failed US policy . The elites have no intention of shutting down this gravy train, which carries wealth from the middle and working class to the rich and connected class.

Reuters wrote just after the aid bill’s passage that Ukraine’s “$61 billion lifeline is not enough.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell went on the Sunday shows after the bill passed to say that $61 billion is “not a lot of money for us…” Well, that’s easy for him to say – after all, it’s always easier to spend someone else’s money. money!

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba was far from grateful for the $170 billion we have sent to his country so far. In an interview with Foreign Policy magazine as the aid package was being passed, Kuleba had the gall to criticize the United States for not producing weapons quickly enough. “If you can’t produce enough interceptors to help Ukraine win the war against a country that wants to destroy the world order, then how are you going to win the war against an enemy perhaps stronger than Ukraine? Russia?

What do you mean for a “thank you”?

We can understand why Ukrainians are frustrated. Most of this money won’t help them fight Russia. US military aid to Ukraine has depleted our own weapons stocks. The money will therefore be used to create new production lines to replace the weapons already sent to Ukraine. It’s all about the American arms industry. President Biden admitted as much when he said, “we are helping Ukraine while investing in our own industrial base.”

This is why Washington desperately wants to ensure that if Donald Trump returns to the White House, the “Ukraine” gravy train cannot be stopped by his – or future – administrations. Last week, news broke that the Ukrainian government was in negotiations with the Biden administration to sign a ten-year security agreement that would guarantee U.S. funding for Ukraine for the next two and a half U.S. administrations.
