A path to victory would stop the money from flowing into their pockets.

Reality hasn't sunk in yet to the Western world.

Ukraine’s desperate plea to get long-range ATACM missiles in order to hit targets deeper inside Russia has nothing to do with carrying out a military strategy. Even if the West gave Ukraine all missiles in its entire inventory, those weapons are insufficient to destroy critical Russian military installations and logistics facilities. But such an attack would ignite an escalation by Russia that would further decimate Ukraine. In other words, this would be a meaningless use of force. Zelensky would be better off punching a wall.

Not to mention, the US would have lost its full inventory of tactical missiles. Hint: The US industrial base is not in the position to quickly replace their losses.
