A Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) assessment that has been leaked online says that the US expects the war in Ukraine to go into 2024 without any peace talks between the warring sides, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.
“Negotiations to end the conflict are unlikely during 2023 in all considered scenarios,” the DIA analysis reads. The document says even if Ukraine regains a “significant” amount of territory from Russia and “unsustainable losses on Russian forces,” it would not lead to peace talks.
Another leak that was also reported by the Post says the US thinks it’s unlikely Ukraine will regain any significant territory in its expected counteroffensive, a stark difference from what the Biden administration has been saying publicly. Both documents, the Post said, could bolster the argument that the US should be pushing for negotiations.
Asked about the DIA assessment, a US official told the Post that it’s up to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky when to talk with Russia, demonstrating Washington’s lack of interest in fostering peace talks. The Biden administration has discouraged peace talks throughout the war, including recently by rejecting the idea of Beijing as a mediator.
The White House also explicitly came out against a ceasefire or any pause in fighting before Chinese President Xi Jinping traveled to Moscow. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the world should “not be fooled” by any Chinese calls for peace.
The DIA assessment says the “most likely scenario” in Ukraine is that either side only makes “marginal” gains on the battlefield. It says a war of attrition for the Ukrainian side could increase “criticism” about how the fight against Russia is being conducted, “making leadership changes more likely.”
The document says Ukraine could also respond to a drawn-out conflict by trying to strike more targets inside Russia. A different leaked document suggested Zelensky would use long-range American weapons to hit Russian territory if Washington decides to provide them to Kyiv.

If this keeps up……………………..We could find ourselves in a war with Russia.
I hope you’re being sarcastic, because we already are in a war with Russia.
This “leaks” are to fool whom? Europeans or Russians? Or Chinese?That is when WP or NYT or other MSMs scoop exclusives
“US Doesn’t Expect Russia-Ukraine Peace Talks in 2023”
…. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
here i translated that from DIA-speak to english =
“we still have a lot of bullets and rockets and old bradley fighting buckets of bolts available”
War is a Racket. Major General Smedley Butler. Recipient of TWO Congressional Medal of Honor, decisive factor in stopping a coup in the United States of America. We really need men like him in our military ranks.
The US clearly wants to make this war last as long as possible. Perhaps they want the war to switch Nato countries to a war economy to get ready for the big war against China in the 2025 to 27 timeframe, as predicted by some US generals.
They may plan such a thing, but Russia and China are also making plans. Russia has already ramped up military production and China has an enormous production potential. There is just no scenario in which the West can win against Russia and China.
Hopefully, the Russians can achieve a decisive victory in Ukraine. Nato licking its wounds in the aftermath of the war is less likely to want another war with China.
Without NATO and the U.S. pumping weapons and money (to be skimmed off by Z and his generals ( read article describing just that in antiwar.com, Hersch allegations.) the war in Ukraine IS over.
So the big “secret” is that even if Ukraine manages to push Putin back, Putin won’t want to negotiate?
I know it’s appearing it was some kid stationed somewhere who took the pictures to show off to his little group of introverted gamers which is in keeping with these just being breifing papers for high ups in the field with the official best guesses and semi reliable analysis.
But this is getting comical.
I could have pulled that profundatry out of my…. behind … and for a lot cheaper.
We’re not allowed to say ASS?
I try not to swear that way I can tease those who get mad at me and use naughty words…lol.

It is hard to imagine that the Ukrainians will be willing to negotiate with the kind of people who have so few qualms about not only committing war crimes but even condoning them and implying that they are a necessary part of winning.
DIA thinks no peace in 2023? That’s like John Dillinger saying “no recess from bank robberies” this year. War profits ALWAYS take precedence over humane peace when it comes to the USA.
pentagon leak! uncle sam has just this morning blamed the leak of the secret pentagon documents on a 21 y/o US National Guardsman. because a 21 year old nat guardsman would certainly have access to secret pentagon documents. it doesn’t get any more believable than that folks. oh wait 9/11 was every bit as believable.
As Gerald Celente says, “When all else fails, they take you to war”. With the U.S. empire failing at home and abroad, they are throwing the ‘hail mary’. https://www.lewrockwell.com/2023/04/no_author/we-are-closening-to-a-move-through-the-cycle-but-first-will-come-disorder/
Why have peace.talks in a war the US started back in 2014? When in God’s name has the US not been at war or selling weapons of death all over?As long as it is profitable to the Defense(sic) the was will.continue.I am.guessing that Iran and China plus North Korea are next on the feeding frenzy.They the rulers of the US can.not stop killing or the economy will crash.
Can’t argue with that.
In the history of this country, there has been only 16 years that we have not had war against some country, somewhere. Pretty amazing statistic.
The US is out of ammo, probably from internal skimming and skimping on GI family living standards. Thus it makes perfect sense to borrow bullets from Koreans.
Defense Intelligence Agency is spouting alternate realities from inside the propaganda bubble. CIA and Space defense Force personel go home after work, pop a beer, and settle in to watch propaganda news and cop shows. Next morning they get up, guzzle coffee and rush off to confront Putin’s war.
Although my Surfer Manifesto story is filed away with winter clothes, I will tell you this about the unfinished next chapter;
Argentina, Indonesia, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa Sponsor negotiations for world peace based on the surfer manifesto; Have fun, enjoy life, and leave Earth more fertile for having lived well in nature’s balance. Interestingly, Koreans also unite behind the surfer manifesto.
To repeat myself, the entire Biden entourage belongs in the Hague.
So in other words, Amerikkka is just fine and dandy with more Ukrainians getting slaughtered.
This is good news. It means that there WILL be a ceasefire in 2023
The US knows it is losing, and has no plans to surrender instead of going down hard.
That stubborn attitude would be more admirable if they were paying the price themselves, rather than imposing it on others.
We honor Bastogne (“nuts”) and Masada not just for stubborn resistance, but for their own courage. We do not give similar honor to Hitler’s orders to hold Channel ports to the death.
Expects or demands?
