      US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has said that while Washington has already sent tens of billions of dollars worth of military assistance to Ukraine, it will continue to ship more for as long as it takes Kiev to capture all territory it claims to be under its sovereignty.

      “I think you know that to this point we’ve provided over $20 billion worth of assistance to Ukraine,” he said. “We’ll continue to support Ukraine for as long as it takes.”

      The Pentagon chief reiterated American commitments to Ukraine on Monday, during a joint press conference with his Indonesian counterpart, Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto. Austin is visiting Indonesia before traveling to Cambodia.

      The US official was responding to a question about the upcoming winter season in Europe and what this will mean for hostilities in Ukraine. The US has done “a lot” to prepare Ukrainian troops for harsh conditions, Austin replied, adding that he expected the Ukrainians to be “in much better condition than their adversaries because of the things that we’ve provided them.”

      He’s far more of a corporate CEO than he is Secretary of Defense, and he has no real power over a military that knows nuclear war with Russia cannot be won and must not be fought. I mean, if I know about the Russian dead man switch nuclear launch system, then General Milley knows about it for sure.

      This story is puffery on Austin’s part, to make sure that revolving door to corporate moo-lah land stays open for him. Ukraine will never get any more of that territory they lost back unless the Russians decide to give it to them.
