Instead, he's going to do what our war hawk politician Linday Graham said what he will do, and that's "fight to the last person". Therefore this is not going to stop, the suffering we see now will be nothing compared to what's coming when the ground freezes over, and well meaning people will be unconsciously cheering this carnage on under the spell of manufactured consent.
The head US military guy here, known as the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, just recently leaked to the New York Times the following:

Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has made the case that the Ukranians should try to cement their gains at the bargaining table.
It's tucked away behind a pay wall so only the headline can be glimpsed, he took it back almost immediately and is now being a good boy again, and nobody else covered it (verboten territory). Now why do you suppose he did that in the first place? Because even though his position requires him to be a yes man and spout the company line, he's still a knowledged military man who can see what's coming. Russia's military strategy doesn't cling to pieces of land won on the battlefield, to them, land is only useful when it can aid in your overall goal, if it ceases to be useful, they have no problem giving it up to save that piece of their army for future endeavors.
"The Narrative" is being currently dialed up to a fevered pitch that the evil Russkies are on the run, our Ukranians heroes should keep following them all the way back to where they came from and more, but that's a trap. This is the calm before the storm, the Russians are patiently integrating those new 300,000 plus, and some time this winter we're going to see real war. Again, Milley knows this, and that's what he was alluding to.
Basically "take what gains you have, cut your losses, and end this thing because before holy hell is released on you".
I don't want to see that happen, it's been bad enough already. These zombified repeaters from the BBC and such may seem to genuinely care about the fate of Ukraine, but they're really only helping fuel this coming fight to the last Ukranian. Wars need the blessings of the people, it's their job to get it, and to keep it.
