That Kim vid could be from anywhere, however, the first scene does
show what appears to be a Russian style powerplant in the background, with the red/white alternating stripes.
For America to be sending in their own shows how obvious the rushed withdrawal from Afghanistan was to get the troops ready for Ukraine in such a short notice.
The official propaganda line was that NATO trained another bunch of Ukrainian troops after the first bunch were murdered, all the way back in April:
U.S. service members in Germany have begun training Ukrainian soldiers on key systems being used to defend Ukraine against the Russian invasion, Pentagon Press Secretary John F. Kirby said.
So, that is less than 3 months and they've got another huge army ready, bigger than the last?
This isn't a movie my friends, this is real life. Preparing for such a huge undertaking is more than 3 months.
What happened, in hindsight, was that America's NATO troops were just observing Ukraine in the field, so they could avoid their mistakes and know how to counter Russian troop movements. They were already prepared for warfare in Europe, but they still had no idea of how Russian strategy or tactics worked.
The pawns were sacrificed so that the knight and bishop pieces knew where to attack. Those Ukrainians can now be the "heroes" who liberated Ukraine when in reality they were actual cannon fodder.
Russia probably did not expect this response, because they were using a lot of new techniques and strategies foreign to NATO. But once NATO could analyze battlefield footage for two months, they were able to figure out how to prepare their troops against it.
So they are able to catch Russians unawares, hence the large retreat - the General in charge of these forces was getting hit by opponents in several areas they were not expecting all at once, so the correct move to spare lives is to simply take the loss and retreat. Lives are far harder to replace than tanks or guns.
Now Russia is calling up a much larger force, and soon just as there are thousands of Americans leading thousands of Ukrainians and other Euros in the battlefields, soon there will be thousands of Russians leading thousands of Chechens, Chinese, Koreans, etc.
War in the age of globalism. Everyone is connected to events now. 50 years ago China didn't care if Russia was conquered or not, they had their own issues to worry about. Today the situation is reversed and what happens in one corner of the globe will cause another country on the side to go bankrupt.
