Politico: U.S. scrambles to reassure Ukraine after Milley comments on negotiations 

The top general's remarks about a “window” for talks angered Ukrainian officials, people familiar with the matter said. The Biden administration is in damage control mode after a top U.S. general said a window for peace talks between Kyiv and Moscow could open this winter, with senior officials scrambling to assure Ukraine it wasn’t undercutting its goal of expelling the Russians. 

Specifically, senior U.S. officials are telling their counterparts in Ukraine that the expected winter fighting pause doesn’t mean talks should happen imminently. Instead, they’re relaying that Washington will continue to support Kyiv’s militarily as it launches the next phase of advances on the battlefield, according to Ukrainian and U.S. officials familiar with the outreach.

What's the common denominator?

a. Russian border states

Once again, historically validation.......spheres of influence.

Not so fast the US did this many times also . Examples... at Nicaragua and Grenada. Many others.

No UN mandate, just a perceived threat that was acted upon.

Enough of your ukie shrill bs.

If you got a better way to run Foreign Policy, lets hear it.

Yes we discussed this earlier in the week. Pentagon wants Peace. The State Department does not. Milley will be castigated by the Neocon and Kagan/krystal element of the Capital District.

Milley is a blowhard and ass kisser.

Milley has definite faults. But compared to the rest of the capital district leadership , he is at least 2-3 notches down on the evil list. He also knows what is going to happen if the pro war side wins this battle he is engaged in.
