… of one of the reasons for a severe butt-hurt of the West–it cannot fight Russia because its best proxy in history, armed and C4ISRed by allegedly “finest fighting force in history” got its ass handed to it.
They know it, and all those people cannot take it. Can you imagine Ben Hodges or Keane with Petraeus commanding formations which will be cut off largely from communications, will be under constant fire impact, sustaining constant heavy losses even in the operational depth, and having virtually no ISR?
