But that’s just a personal belief. Agreed. I think it's much easier to become skilled at something if you approach it from the standpoint of discarding what you think you know. If that knowledge is in fact true and valuable, you'll figure it out as you learn more and incorporate it, rather than starting from a perhaps flawed base. Moreover, in general, men have too much ego about some tasks and are way more lazy than women. And FWIW, I include myself in that assessment. As for the Bradleys, and other western armored vehicles, Biden should have done that long ago. At this point, we should be at the stage where we're sending them western aircraft. The thinking is that Putin is going to do a general mobilization soon and bring in hundreds of thousands more soldiers. Given the success the Russians had so far with their Orc wave tactics, it's not hard to believe that they could get breakthroughs in many areas of the front if they threw that many more soldiers in. After all, even meat grinders and wood chippers can get clogged up if you try to feed too much into them at once. Ukraine needs to be able to scale up the killing to an industrial level to counter this tactic and they need to be able to do it before the next mobilization happens, not as a reaction to it after the fact. If the casualties start mounting on that level, someone is going to depose Putin one way or another and even if they're worse than he is, other than nukes, they won't have much military capability to do damage outside of Russia for perhaps decades.
