    Read the fucking article. The US response was “it’s not our choice to make”

      You don’t think the US is privately egging Zelensky on while publicly putting on a face of “oh it’s totally their choice to make”?

      If I had stock in Raytheon that’s certainly what I’d like to see… just saying.

        I’m sure it is, but Zelenskyy is an adult and capable of making his own decisions either way and I don’t see what leverage the US could possibly have to force him to keep fighting. What are they going to do if he makes peace, stop giving Ukraine weapons for the war they aren’t fighting any more? Even if the US deposed him, Zelenskyy has said openly that he doesn’t want to run the country after the war. Can’t say I blame him, I’d want a holiday too.

        Regardless, none of this changes the fact that if you had read more than the headline, you wouldn’t have said “per the article”, would you?
