U.S.-Russia Proxy War in Ukraine Continues

Ukraine remains the battleground for a proxy war between the U.S. and Russia, with an Aug. 3 Army press release announcing that additional counterfire radars, supporting equipment, and personnel have been sent to the Ukrainians to assist in their fight against Russian-backed forces. Yet the media continue underreporting this significant war. And few people are examining the Obama regime’s motivation and strategy for it.

The Army press release specified the latest support the U.S. has sent to Ukraine.

Team Tobyhanna and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Distribution-Tobyhanna joined forces to test and move 31 pieces of stock Army equipment to help the beleaguered country. Depot technicians and engineers followed four AN/TPQ-36 Firefinder Radar Systems and 10 AN/TPQ-49 Lightweight Counter Mortar Radars (LCMR) across the pond to repair and field the assets. Team members will remain in country to provide technical support during an upcoming Ukrainian training exercise. Both radars are used to back track incoming fire for fast and accurate counterfire.

These counterfire radars and personnel are in addition to the “two AN/TPQ-36 radars” the U.S. sent to Ukraine last year.

SCI posted an analysis on the U.S.-Russia proxy war on July 18. That analysis included an official Army video of U.S. troops training Ukrainian troops.

Media should be heavily reporting on this war. That Russia can pose an existential threat to the U.S. is enough to warrant such attention. However, there is more to the story than just this.

What is the motivation and strategy for why the Obama regime is fighting the war the way it is? The U.S. currently is providing only defensive assets and training to the Ukrainians. Why? Is it to avoid escalation? Or is there another reason?

Obama is apparently imploring the Russians to cooperate with him in his war in Syria. Is that affecting the way the U.S. is fighting Russia in Ukraine?

Has the U.S. made any agreements with Russia about how it will fight the Russians in Ukraine in hopes of securing Russian help in Syria?

But don’t expect the media to ask these questions. They are focused on electing Hillary Clinton as president and will not report on anything that may damage her or their Democratic Party.
