Endless images of damaged Russian tanks show how Ukrainians are putting U.S. Javelin missiles to use—and yet they could be fighting even more effectively if more U.S. advisors were there to help, say two U.S. volunteers who recently returned from the war-torn country…

Does that mean they're not already doing that?

No, we should stay out of it physically and keep our traps shut about anything else we're doing (here's looking at you Pres. Joe and Sec. Austin!)

The only advising NATO should do is from Poland, etc. No boots on the ground in the Ukraine. The US, UK, etc. had been training the Ukraine forces since 2015. So there would not be a repeat of Putin waltzing thru to take Crimea as in 2014. US[NATO] troops only left the Ukraine a week or two before Putin's current invasion. It was reported …

CIA or Spec Ops, etc., may be roaming around clandestinely. That being said the US Embassy is reoccupied by some of the US Staff. Which may include USMC, etc. security troops.

Yes, the Sec Def said the USA's[NATO's] mission is to support the Ukraine in defeating Putin's Forces/weakening them to the point they can't do this type of invasion again …

After the war is over, I would like to learn how and why the Ukrainian artillery was so accurate.

I practiced NGFS for decades 74-03. When I was in I was told about a new way of conducting fire support was in the works (a one man station). I never saw it. But apparently it has been perfected.

No US troops on the ground but give Ukraine anything they need to push the Russians back to the 1992 borders.

I can almost guarantee you that we've had Special Forces advisors on the ground from the beginning. It's what we do.

I think US advisors in Poland is sufficient.

And CIA Direct Action Tms … however very small in overall numbers.

I think US advisors in Poland is sufficient.
I do generally agree. No regular US units on the ground in the Ukraine. Frankly they don't need any US on the ground. Doing pretty good on their own. Plus the Russian military is "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight" … And I'm being generous.
