“I don’t think he’ll rest until there’s a pro-Russian government in Kiev. Or a federated Ukraine where the eastern part of the country, for all practical purposes, looks to Russia,” Gates said.

Gates decries the lack of leadership (and he's correct) but then he leads Putin on (in the wrong direction) by saying Putin won't "rest until there's a a pro-Russian government in Kiev".

That's what a defeatist says.

Did Reagan say that the the Soviet Union would never rest until the west was defeated?

Of course he didn't.
