US Mulls More Troops Inside Ukraine To Track Arms As Leaked Cable Admits “Impossible” Task, by Tyler Durden

More U.S. troops inside Ukraine ups the odds of direct Russian-U.S. conflict and war. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The Biden administration is mulling stepping up the US troop presence inside Ukraine as part of a program to attempt to track the billions of dollars in weaponry being handed out to its forces. However, some critics are already pointing out the obvious: “This is classic mission creep,” a former US official has warned, following the examples of endless ‘war on terror’ conflicts-turned-quagmires such as Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria.

NBC News cited three US defense officials this week who indicated that sending a small number of additional troops to assist existing attempts to establish an arms-tracking oversight program inside Ukraine is being seriously discussed, coming at a time the White House is facing increased Congressional scrutiny over lack of accountability, particularly as Republicans are set to take over in the House next year.

“The Pentagon has a couple of dozen U.S. troops in Ukraine, including a very small number already assigned to making sure weapons reach their intended recipients,” NBC reported. “Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and other military leaders want to enhance the accountability mission and make sure there are experts in country to help Ukraine use critical weapons systems, including air defense and counter-drone systems.”
