Why can't he Liberals stop lying. The Crimean war required The Ottoman Empire, The French Empire, The British Empire and Sardinia to basically get a draw. I will deal with all the other Liberal's historical lies when I feel the motivation. But needless to say if I wanted to engage in this silly rhetoric, It would be pretty easy to frame a list of American military operations that was far from rosy. But just for starters.
The American human wave tactics in WWI.
The Kasserine pass.
Ronnie running away from Lebanon.
The defeat in Somalia.
I've got a feeling there was a more recent conclusion to a war that wasn't a complete success for the US, but it escapes me for the time bing.
But none of this can distract from the humiliating defeat the Ukrainians suffered in the south, losing the easily defendable Crimean Isthmus. The front could be at its shortest.10Km. The cretinism of the Ukrainians and presumably their western military expert advisors beggars belief. Ukraine was trying to economically strangle Crimea. It shouldn't have taken a military genius to realise that the noose to Crimea, was the one bit of territory the Ukrainians needed to defend above all others. Of course this is the one aspect of the conflict that the Liberals are desperate that no one talks about. They don't want anyone to even starting thinking about it, because of course as soon as you do, it demolishes the myth of United Ukrainian nation wanting separation from Russia.
