The Bargain of the Century

‘We’ve given all the stuff we kept in store. The only way Ukraine wins is if we NOW mobilize our industry -and our will- behind that.

DO NOT TELL ME it’s ‘unaffordable’, because you represent an economy of €15 TRILLION a year. I can feed the Ukrainian military on about 75 billion a year -for two or three years- and I can make them WIN.

This is NOT about affordability, this is about choice and competence. And isn’t it a bargain if we can defeat Russia when we just spend money- and not your children. 

It’s the bargain of the century.’

-General Richard Barron (UK, ret’d)  @ Lucerne Dialog
