The problem with the Russian is despite all the propaganda issued by the Ukrainian side, they have not or sparsely rebuked any of the Ukrainian claims.

The Russian reports although short, are more in compliance to those of a professional army.

While the Ukrainian Army makes up of mainly ill trained conscripts and aged reservists hence the chaotic and undisciplined situation.

We heard Zalensky a non military person personally ordering the disastrous attack on Snake Island against his army advice.

That is why I choose to believe more in reports arising out of Russia. IMO more plausible.

But the accompanying events indicated to us which direction the war is heading.

Example. If the Ukrainian are winning the war, why is German Olaf Scholtz or Lloyd Austin, the US Secretary of Defense suddenly and simultaneously calling his Russian counterpart Sorgoi asking for a ceasefire.

Does not make any sense after the US despatched and dumped billions of dollarsworth of arms in Ukraine and the Ukrainian AZOV neo-NAZI forces are winning.

My conclusion is the Ukrainian side is not doing as great as they propagate.

As I constantly say, disinformation does not win a real war.

Now Ben Wallace, the UK Defense Secretary is appealing for more Soviet era weapons to suppy to Ukraine.

The ill trained Ukrainian army can't handled the newer US supplied weapons and they are falling into the hands of tge DNR LNR militia intact.

The US could have stayed in Afghanistan till the end of time. It left because it no longer wanted to hold the hands of the Afghan people. The Afghan people lost. The US also achieved its objective of annihilating Al Qaeda.

The Afghans lost because they won’t fight for their future. They’d rather live in backwardness.

Ukrainians on the other hand, choose freedom and advancement as a country, rather than being subjugated by the backwards Russians.
they want but they can't. they have minimum support from the people of Afghan. it is no wonder, they don't understand afghans well enough to get a sufficient support from the people. And that is where Taliban 2.0 is better than US.

The point is Washington does not have answers to baby formula shortage, and the recalls were issued two month of ago. Biden's administration can print $40 Billion for Ukraine but does not have the money to help American mothers. Asking Abbott alone to end this logistic logjam is unrealistic and completely missed the point if you are a mother in one of those 8 states. The point is "what is American interest" is still in debate since current Administration is really out of touch with reality.

Well we can simply do what the Chinese did when this happened to them. Have scores of people sent all over the world to clear off other countries shelves of baby formula instead of fixing the problem. (Which they also did to the world's N95 mask supply back in 2020).

We should just send people to major Chinese cities to clear their shelves. Problem solved!

In failing to acknowledge the battle against the Russian is not doing so well, the UK government has now resorted to even sanctioning Putin's daughter from his previous marriage who has been living in UK for decades.

Presumingly to personally applying pressure or threatened Putin using his family tie.

The point is "what is American interest" is still in debate since current Administration is really out of touch with reality. Democrats likely be facing landslide defeat in the mid term election and maybe we can have some answers to runaway inflation and yes, baby formula shortage matters to voters in those 8 states. The $40 Billion for Ukraine will only last 6 month in the Ukraine conflict because most of the money will be going to US defense + CIA contractors and offshore slush funds (congress friends) with very little oversight. I doubt GOP will be writing another $40 billion next year to Ukraine. Even democrats will not be able to explain to the American people next year when another $40 billion aid will be needed for Ukraine.
It's harder than you think.

The production of baby formula is very delicate, it's not something you throw money at it and you can multiple their production. It needed a lot of certification to have the production ramp up, this is not normal dairy production, and normal dairy production already have a very stringent rules

Put together the people (Not just Chinese) buying them and selling them back to the Chinese on Higher Price, which mean people who don't have kids would still buy them to trade for profit. It took 4 years from 2015 to 2019 to have the production stabilised. 2 months would not solve anything. And even today. Some local supermarket still have 2 tins per customer limit to deter people from buying unless you really needed it.

Here are an article back in 2015 about Baby Formula shortage


Here is an article back in 2018 about the limitation still in place


Just be glad this does not happen to you.......

Too many excuses about yada yada and blaming everyone else for today's problem on blah blah blah. US can print 40 billion US dollars to pay off all the defense companies, but can't get baby formula to newborn mothers. What a great country US has become.

First, you do realise average Australian are richer than average American, right? And it take us 4 years to fix this.

Second this is not about mother did not have enough money to buy baby formula, had this been the case, your point have some validity. This is about supply problem. Just because you put money in it does not mean they can have more than 24 hours a day and 7 days a week production. And new Production line is not going to set up in 2 months.

Otherwise it just show you have no idea on topic and repeating stupid comment like a broken recorder.

The trucks that come to Ukraine had to go back to Poland and Romania why send them back empty
Not the truck that go between Ukraine to Poland. It's the truck that goes from Lviv to Eastern Front. You need truck to move supply from Lviv or Kyiv to Eastern area. Sure, you can run empty and pick up cargo to and from Poland or Romania when they run back to Lviv, but then if you do that you take 8 or 10 hours of time for them to go between Lviv to Poland before returning to Lviv to pick up those weapon and go to the front.

Either that or you set aside some truck dedicated to go between Poland/Romania to Lviv or Kyiv, which will take away your logistic capability to the front line.

There's too much assumption in your thread pretending the US problems are the same as Australian issues 5 years ago. How do you know US needs new production line when its a recall issue? Canada also has excess manufacturing capacity and CSA can be imported into US. Another unique issue for the US is hording by Amazon resellers at much higher prices. If Biden administration doesn't understand, I am sure you are clueless as well. That's not an attack on you, this is a complex dilemma.
