Why does he bother with winning or losing a money-making war? It's all about business. War is a big moneymaker, plain and simple. The goal isn't victory or defeat; it's all about money. Big money. And when it comes to that, the Ukraine war is a win. From the West's perspective, it's the most successful (=profitable) war in history.
When you're in this business, you don't count the bodies. They are not yours anyway. You only count the billions they swiped from our pockets and stashed away, where the controls couldn't audit them. Just like what happened in Iraq and Afghanistan, folks. Look at this picture. The smiles on the partners' faces say it all, don't they?
