The surrender of the Ukrainians (and a few foreign officials) at Azovstal in Mariupol has taken the wind from the sails of the immense pro-Ukraine propaganda effort. It won’t stop the $40 billion aid package, but it’s now impossible to pretend that Russia is losing in Ukraine. Thus, the NY Times, house organ for the Deep State, is calling for negotiations. From John Walsh at antiwar.com:
Ukraine must negotiate based on a “realistic assessment” and “limits” to U.S./NATO commitment, says NYT
A week ago we noted that a May 11 New York Times news article, documented that all was not going well for the US in Ukraine and that a companion opinion piece hinted that a shift in direction might be in order.
Now on May 19, “THE EDITORIAL BOARD,” the full Magisterium of the Times, has moved from hints to a clarion call for a change in direction in an editorial uninformatively titled, “The War Is Getting Complicated, and America Isn’t Ready.” From atop the Opinion page the Editorial board has declared that “total victory” over Russia is not possible and that Ukraine will have to negotiate a peace in a way that reflects a “realistic assessment” and the “limits” of US commitment. The Times serves as one the main shapers of public opinion for the Elite and so its pronouncements are not to be overlooked lightly.
Ukrainians will have to adjust to US “limits” and make sacrifices for newfound US realism
