Western technologies defeat Russian doomsday weapons
Putin used to scare the whole world with it. It's almost like the Russian army, the scariest part of which is the face of Prigozhin and Russian generals
The downing of a Kinzhal missile over Kyiv was a very loud event. Both literally and figuratively.
In the literal sense, of course, because there are few people in Kyiv who did not hear it at 2 am. And then were not happy that Ukrainian air defense, reinforced by American patriots, destroyed the Russian superweapons.
But the figurative story is more interesting. For it was the first time that Western air defense systems and the latest supersonic weapon clashed. A doomsday weapon from Moscow. And Western technology won. It turned out that Russian superweapons were not that super. And Putin used to scare the whole world with it. It's almost like the Russian army, the scariest part of which is the face of Prigozhin and Russian generals. As it turns out.
That's why American generals are very happy somewhere. And all those countries that already have air defense systems from American arms manufacturers in service. The latter are even more excited because all the other countries that have been buying Russian air defense systems will now realize who’s in charge. And they will run to place orders. So there is no need to worry about American support for Ukraine. The lobbyists of the leading arms companies, who are Democrats but mostly Republicans, know how to count money.
“Countries that have been buying Russian air defense systems will now realize who’s in charge. And they will run to place orders. So there is no need to worry about American support for Ukraine”
But who is sad? The Kremlin, of course. Because it has been its place once again.
And there are a lot of very angry Chinese people. Very angry at Putin, too. Because the Chinese have recently been boasting about their super-duper supersonic weapons. Because Taiwan has Patriots in service. Many, many Patriots. And now there will be even more. And now it has become clear to the Chinese and the whole world that it will not be possible to scare Taiwan and its allies with its super-duper supersonic missile. And the prospect of a small victorious war against Taiwan is moving even further away. And we have Putin to thank for that.
Everything looked so well for Comrade Xi at the beginning. You let Putin attack Ukraine. You expect to see an imminent war and a furious West. The West that has been humiliated. And against this background, you attack Taiwan. A perfect plan.
Which got scrapped in February-March 2022 thanks to the Ukrainian armed forces. And a simple Ukrainian soldier and general. Who no one took into account. And who turned the plans to take over the world by a bunch of crazy dictators upside down.
