The U.S. doesn’t care if Ukraine is wiped out, which could be soon now that Russia has escalated its efforts there. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:
Moon of Alabama has proven to be a reliable source of reporting on the conflict in Ukraine. The posting of November 23 indicates that some part of the Russian government or military has finally realized that Russia is at war.

The eight-month old Kremlin policy of protecting Ukraine from attack, thus helping Ukraine to conduct war against the Russian forces, seems to have come to an end. The infrastructure–power, transportation, water–of Ukraine is being shut down. The real war Russian attacks on Ukraine’s ability to function have gradually escalated, resulting in wider and more serious damage. It seems that the Russians don’t want to destroy everything unless the West and its puppet Ukraine government fail to come to their senses.
The Western whore media, of course, doesn’t report the true situation. The Western presstitutes are a propaganda ministry and have created a picture of Russian defeat. It would be difficult to identify the worst liar in the Western media as there are endless candidates, but the UK Telegraph’s Charles Moore is a leading candidate for posting the most far-fetched reports: See, for example,” Vladimir Putin’s only hope now is to terrify the West into negotiating away Ukraine’s victories.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/11/18/vladimir-putins-hope-now-terrify-west-negotiating-away-ukraines/ The Telegraph also tells us that “Ukraine could reach Crimea by Christmas” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2022/11/19/ukraine-news-russia-war-latest-putin-missiles-severodonetsk/?li_source=LI&li_medium=liftigniter-rhr
