U.S. and Britain Sour on Giving Continuous Arms to Ungrateful Ukraine: We’re ‘Not Like Amazon’
The U.S. and Britain are starting to grow sour on giving continuous aid and weapons to an ungrateful and entitled Ukraine.
British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace stated on Wednesday that he believes Ukraine ought to show them more respect over the support their country has given to them, rather than looking at Britain like an ATM and always demanding more.
“Whether we like it or not, people want to see a bit of gratitude,” Wallace said.
“I told them that last year, when I drove 11 hours to be given a list, that I’m not like Amazon,” he added.
U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan echoed Wallace’s statements about Ukraine’s belligerence in demanding aid.
“The United States of America has stepped up to provide an enormous amount of capacity,” Sullivan said.
“I think the American people do deserve a degree of gratitude from the United States government for their willingness to step up and from the rest of the world as well,” Sullivan added.
The U.S. and Britain became peeved after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky threw a tantrum on Twitter because his country was not given immediate NATO membership, even though that would likely cause World War 3:
We value our allies. We value our shared security. And we always appreciate an open conversation.
Ukraine will be represented at the NATO summit in Vilnius. Because it is about respect.
But Ukraine also deserves respect. Now, on the way to Vilnius, we received signals that…

Big League Politics has reported on the gratuitous amount of aid and weapons that have been given by the U.S. and Western powers to Ukraine:
“The International Monetary Fund is now discussing a new multi-year aid package worth $16 billion to cover Ukraine’s budget and for war recovery.
According to a Bloomberg report, officials who know about the IMF’s inner workings revealed that “If approved, the three- to four-year program — worth $14 billion to $16 billion total — will assume a disbursement of $5 billion to $7 billion in the first year.”
The plan could be fully hammered out towards the end of March, with the first series of payments sent out as early as April.
That said, the IMF has mentioned several conditions that must first be met, which includes a G7 endorsement for the package, and other donors who give Ukraine a glowing recommendation for external aid due to the country’s large and constantly growing debt.
According to an official IMF statement, the IMF “remains closely engaged” with Ukraine and stated that cooperation “could pave the way toward a fully fledged program.” As Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge reported, the IMF “didn’t confirm to Bloomberg the potential size of the loan.”
Ukraine has already received billions in economic and military aid from the Collective West. This is part of the West’s to get Russia trapped in a geopolitical blunder in Ukraine. While this invasion is a deplorable event, increasing military aid is just adding fuel to the fire and potentially turning this clash into a nuclear conflict.
On top of that, Ukraine is no paragon of advanced democracy. It’s a corrupt Slavic state that has proven to be incapable of achieving respectable economic and political development since the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
In sum, the US has no business butting into what is a Slav-on-Slav geopolitical struggle. It should be placing all of its attention on the southern border — America’s primary national security blindspot.”
