At the onset of the Ukraine War, the Americans laid out 3 criteria for providing weapons to the Ukrainians: it must be a weapon system not critical to US defense operations, the technology must be outdated and it must be something that the Ukrainians can operate on their own. But things are changing…
In the West’s eyes, the Russians have escalated this war through their genocidal actions. Resulting in discussions over the use of the Patriot Missile Defense System. Now, this brings plenty of implications to the table.
Perhaps the most notable is that the Patriot Missile requires “advisors” to aid in its operation – meaning boots on the ground. Nothing is set in stone, but this could significantly impact the trajectory of the war.
