  1. In stead of weakening Russia, it looks more like they are making Europe defenseless. Sending their weapons to Ukr is the ploy, but it looks more like they are only wanting to sell EU US weapons to replace them. Weapons the EU will not be in a position to pay for if their economy goes into the toilet. This of course means debt servitude. Then there is the actual efficacy of western weapons vs Russian weapons. Eternal debt for weapons that are inferior for confrontation at that. On top of that, Ukr will owe these countries for their contributions. What a scam.
