Led by Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, the US House Foreign Affairs Committee voted today to encourage the Biden Administration to promptly ship long range missiles to Ukraine. Yesterday Russia’s defense minister General Shogui warned that America and Great Britain would be dragged into the war if Ukraine strikes Russian territory with Western long range missiles. He said Russia would respond by attacking decision making centers.

Here is the US wet dream
Ukrainian troops—if sufficiently supported with expanded Western military aid—can break through Russian lines and reach the occupied Crimean Peninsula by the end of the summer, the former commander of the U.S. Army in Europe Ben Hodges has told Newsweek.
Amid concerns about the slow pace and mounting losses of Ukraine’s nascent counteroffensive in the south and east of the country launched early in June, Hodges called on President Joe Biden‘s administration to underscore its commitment to Ukrainian victory by providing advanced weapons like the MGM-140 Army Tactical Missile System—colloquially known as the ATACMS—so far denied Kyiv for fear of provoking Russian retaliation.
“My principal caveat still remains that if the United States were to provide what Ukraine needs, then Ukraine could actually still liberate Crimea by the end of this summer,” Hodges said in an interview about the progress and prospects of Ukraine’s long-awaited push.
