Valid, I get that but still crazy that even with all this support, they are getting blasted. And this isn't even if Belarus joins in, which is very close to their capital.

They’re getting drip fed heavy equipment vs the thousands of Russian tanks that’re rolling out from Russia’s reserves. 12 HIMARS and (promised) 24 western MBT’s really aren’t that significant vs thousands of Russian tanks and artillery.

The Belarusian Army has about 10,000 professional soldiers, and a budget that’s literally only 1% of the Russian military budget

Belarus is a joke of an army that still includes horse-pulled interwar-era artillery in their tallies.
