Fans of the never ending current thing war are unhappy about off the cuff comments made by British Defense Minister Ben Wallace, who was overheard at the NATO summit in Lithuania telling the press that he had warned Ukraine it should stop treating the UK as ‘an Amazon delivery service for weapons’.
Ben Wallace unleashes on Zelensky: Defence Secretary says West is ‘not an Amazon delivery service for weapons’, warns ‘people want to see gratitude’ from Ukraine for military aid it’s received

Wallace’s outburst apparently occurred after he expressed the opinion that Ukraine’s leader Volodymyr Zelensky seems ungrateful despite the fact that billions in weapons continues to be supplied to the country.
“There is a slight word of caution which is, whether we like it or not, people want to see gratitude,” Wallace reportedly stated.
He continued, “Sometimes you’re persuading countries to give up their own stocks. And yes, the war is a noble war and yes, we see it as you doing a war not just for yourselves but also our freedoms.”
“But sometimes you’ve got to persuade lawmakers on the Hill in America,” Wallace explained, adding “You have got to persuade doubting politicians in other countries that it is worth it, it’s worthwhile and they are getting something for it.”
Zelensky responded by claiming he has always shown gratitude and asking if Wallace “wants something special” from him.
