Don’t Worry, Everyone, I Solved the Ukraine Crisis

Written by Jason Simpkins

Are you tired of the war in Ukraine?

I bet you are.

I know I am and it’s not even my family that’s being killed by Russian rocket fire. 

That is to say, at least 9,600 Ukrainian civilians have died so far in this conflict, with another 17,000-plus injured.

And that’s just what’s been verified by the U.N. 

The number will climb as we continue to uncover mass graves throughout Ukraine for the next few decades. 

And then there are the kidnappings. 

Russia itself says it’s “evacuated” over 700,000 Ukrainian children. 

You see, Russia’s own population has been in decline since the fall of the Soviet Union...

Russia Population DeclineLargely because the place is a shithole. 

The Russian population is absolutely miserable — too depressed to even have sex, much less kids.

And then, of course, you have the consequences of their “special operation” operation. 

About a million people have fled the country since 2022 for fear of being drafted into the conflict. 

Those fears are well founded because Russia has indeed conscripted more than 300,000 people to sustain its invasion. And that doesn’t even count the prisoners it pulled out of jail and sent to the front lines.

Every single one of these people is being marched straight to the grave  or left to rot on the battlefield.

Which is to say roughly 120,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in the conflict so far, with another 180,000 injured or maimed.

That’s a bit of a drain, and it’s why Russia has to replenish their population (and their workforce). 

So they’re literally stealing Ukrainian kids and sending them to reeducation camps to Russify them. 

And that is why Vladimir Putin is a war criminal wanted by the International Criminal Court.

Not only that, but almost 7 million Ukrainians have fled their own country since the start of the war and are now living by the grace of God as refugees. 

And of those that have stayed behind, about 131,000 have ended up casualties of war, with as many as 17,500 killed in action. 

So there you have it.

Those are the most accurate numbers I can give you regarding the death, destruction, and carnage that’s resulted from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. And I didn’t even touch the rape, sex trafficking, and child abuse.

But I also know those aren’t the numbers you’re really interested in. 

Because when I turn on the news the only figure that ever comes up is the $110 billion in aid we’ve sent to Ukraine to help the country defend itself. 

That’s what our politicians are tired of. I had to hear all about it when they were racing to narrowly avoid another government shutdown last week. 

Disaster relief made it into that 45-day continuing resolution to keep things running for the next month and a half, but Ukraine funding didn’t. 

Funny thing is, though, that’s the number that matters least to me. Because even with the money we’re sending to Ukraine, just 1% of the U.S. budget goes to foreign aid. 

That’s 1%  which may surprise you, because just 3% of Americans actually know that.

US foreign aid perceptionThat means some 97% of the country thinks we spend more on foreign aid than we actually do. And on average, Americans think foreign aid spending accounts for a third of our budget. 

It doesn’t. Not even close.

And that’s why my solution to this whole Ukraine issue is simple…

Send more, not less.

Let’s just get this over with. 

Because Russia is on the brink. 

I traffic in a lot of military circles, and the defense officials I talk to always refer to Russia as a “near-peer” adversary.

But this war has made it plainly clear it is not nearly our peer. 

If the United States wanted to invade Ukraine, we could have captured Kyiv in three weeks just like we did Baghdad. 

Russia got its ass handed to it. Putin is losing this fight and we haven’t even really been trying. 

I’ve heard a lot of bitching and whining about the slow pace of Ukraine’s counteroffensive but it’d be going a lot smoother if the Biden administration didn’t drag its feet in supplying high-end weapons platforms. 

Abrams tanks, HIMARS, F-16s, ATACMs… These are all weapons Joe Biden ultimately agreed to send to Ukraine after initially saying he wouldn’t. 

He literally spent months — more than a year, in some cases — screwing around while people died before deciding to do what everyone knew we’d end up doing eventually.

The whole world would have been better off if they just went ahead and did it ASAP rather than wait to gauge how Vladimir Putin would react. 

And why are we afraid of this guy again?

This war criminal who has repeatedly threatened to nuke the United States into oblivion…

This coward who imprisons and assassinates his critics and political opponents…

This corrupt puppet king of the world’s most barren, frigid, useless oligarchy.

This naked emperor who himself was almost deposed by his own mercenary goon just months ago.

In a country that contributes nothing of value to the world, aside from the raw resources it strips from the earth — literally eviscerating itself, just as it’s done politically, demographically, economically, morally, ethically… 

How fitting.

You know I was born in the early '80s. 

I grew up in the world of Red Dawn and Rocky IV.

So it’s kind of jarring for me to look around and see a bunch of weak-kneed Putin apologists saying America doesn’t have the will, resources, or resolve to finish the job we started the second we got involved.

Sorry, Ukraine. Sorry, Europe. Sorry, democracy. Sorry, justice. 

Can’t do it. We just don’t have it in us. 

What a load of bullshit. 

The United States of America is the most powerful country in the world, and it’s not even close. 

We have the money, we have the weapons, we have the know-how… We have everything we need.

The only thing missing is the gumption.

So if everyone is tired of this war, let’s just end it. 

Lord knows Putin isn’t going to anytime soon. 

And if you want to profit from the American firepower that’s being deployed in Ukraine, that’s suddenly in enormously high demand around the world, and that’s just sitting there waiting to safeguard our planet from tyrants and thugs like Vladimir Putin, then check out my investment service Secret Stock Files.

I just released a huge new report about an extremely lucrative Pentagon project that’s going to mean big money for a small company. 

Get the details on that here.

Fight on,
