Elon Musk to Zelenskyy: ‘Do not send the flower of Ukrainian youth to die in trenches’

Billionaire Elon Musk is speaking out about the ongoing feeding of Ukrainian men into the meat grinder of the war against Russia, a voice of reason that isn’t going to earn him many fans among the warmongers in Washington, D.C.

In candid comments made during an interview with podcaster Lex Fridman, the SpaceX/Tesla CEO and X owner urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky not to continue to deplete his country of future generations for a futile cause that even his own aides reportedly believe is lost.

“The reason I you know, proposed a some sort of truce or peace a year ago was I predicted pretty much exactly what would happen which is a lot of people dying for basically almost no changes in land,” he said.

“And this…and the loss of the flower of Ukrainian and Russian youth which we should have some sympathy for the Russian boys as well as the Ukrainian boys… so there’s a lot of sons not coming back to their parents,” Musk continued, adding that the young men used as cannon fodder “don’t really hate the other side” but are merely disposable pawns for those behind the war.

“War is a place where young boys who don’t know each other, are killing each other on behalf of old men that do know each other,” he said.”What the hell’s the point of that?”

The host then brought up Zelensky’s reluctance to sit down with Russian leader Vladimir Putin to bring an end to the slaughter.

“Do you think he should… sit down, man to man, leader to leader and negotiate peace?” Fridman asked.

“I would just recommend do not send the flower of Ukrainian youth to die in trenches,” Musk replied. “Whether he talks to Putin or not, just don’t do that.”

“Whoever goes on the offensive will lose massive numbers of people,” he added. “And history will not look kindly upon them.”

Musk’s words come as public opinion continues to shift against the regime’s blank check to the oafish Eastern European dwarf in his ratty green army costume and the continued feeding of his country’s future into the teeth of the Russian war machine with President Biden’s demand for another $60+ billion in funding currently stalled in Congress, but hero worship runs deep inside the Beltway.

The gleam is coming off of Zelensky’s halo, with even the previously worshipful media turning on the man who was not that long ago portrayed as the savior of Western democracy.

Less than a year after Time magazine bestowed the high honor of “Person of the Year” upon Zelensky, a new article paints a far less flattering picture of delusion, denial, and corruption.

The stunning article gleans insight from some of the Ukrainian leader’s intimates, one who said that “Zelensky feels betrayed by his Western allies. They have left him without the means to win the war, only the means to survive it,” a feeling that is worsening as the latest aid package remains stalled in Congress.

According to Time’s Simon Shuster who penned the piece, “Amid all the pressure to root out corruption, I assumed, perhaps naively, that officials in Ukraine would think twice before taking a bribe or pocketing state funds. But when I made this point to a top presidential adviser in early October, he asked me to turn off my audio recorder so he could speak more freely. ‘Simon, you’re mistaken,’ he says. ‘People are stealing like there’s no tomorrow,’” hardly the type of PR that the Zelensky regime needs with tens of billions at stake.

“Despite the recent setbacks on the battlefield, he does not intend to give up fighting or to sue for any kind of peace. On the contrary, his belief in Ukraine’s ultimate victory over Russia has hardened into a form that worries some of his advisers. It is immovable, verging on the messianic. ‘He deludes himself,” one of his closest aides tells me in frustration. “We’re out of options. We’re not winning. But try telling him that,’” the Time article reads.

Musk will no doubt be pilloried by Zelensky worshippers but the tide has turned and as he says, history will be an unforgiving judge.
