US, Ukraine confirm cluster bombs in Kiev, Hersh says Biden 's*****d'
Ukrainian Army sources and the US Pentagon confirm that cluster bombs have arrived in Kiev while a new piece for journalist Seymour Hersh reveals that “cluster bombs have zero chance of changing the course of the war.”
Brigadier General Aleksandr Tarnavsky told CNN that Washington has already sent the cluster munitions promised to Kiev, reaffirming that the weapons are now with the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The US also confirmed this information.
Tarnavsky said “We just got them, we haven’t used them yet, but they can radically change [the battlefield],” adding that the cluster munitions, according to his claims, could assist Ukrainian Forces in pushing Russia away from their lines of defense.
In turn, Joint Staff Director for Operations Lt. General Douglas A. Sims confirmed during a press briefing that "There are cluster munitions in Ukraine at this time," revealing that even prior to the US delivery there had been cluster munitions available in Ukraine provided by third-party countries.
Hersh reveals Biden is 'screwed'
In a new piece, Pulitzer-winning journalist Seymour Hersh quotes an anonymous Biden administration official saying that “Biden’s principal issue in the war is that he’s scr***d.”
Hersh's source explained “We [US] didn’t give Ukraine cluster bombs earlier in the war, but we’re giving them cluster bombs now because that’s all we got left in the cupboard," questioning "Aren’t these the bombs that are banned all over the world because they kill kids?"
The US' excuse is that Ukraine vowed to decrease the long-term consequences of using the weapons. The anonymous source reaffirmed this rhetoric saying "But the Ukrainians tell us they are not planning to drop them on civilians."
To clear their conscience, however, another false excuse is also publicized, Hersh's source explained saying "The administration [Biden administration] claims that the Russians have used them first in the war," then debunked it saying "which is just a lie."
Most significantly, the source underscored that “cluster bombs have zero chance of changing the course of the war.”
That having been said, Hersh asked the Biden administration source what happens once the Ukrainian counteroffensive completely exhausts itself and Russia launches its counter-strike.
“What happens then?” the official asked “The US has painted itself in a corner by calling for NATO to do something. Will NATO respond by sending the brigades now training in Poland and Romania on an airborne assault? We knew more about the German army in Normandy in World War II than we know about the Russian army in Ukraine.”
