US needs to sort out its role in the Ukraine War
The emerging debate on whether or not to continue helping Ukraine is really, really important. There really kind of three factions. One faction says no matter what, we have to stop Russia, because we don’t stop Russia and Ukraine. Next will come Poland or Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania. The second faction says, Well, I’d like to help the Ukrainians but I saw distrust the Biden administration, I think the Defense Department bureaucracy is so incompetent. And I think the level of corruption in Ukraine is so great, that I’m not sure it’s a good thing to do, even though I’d like to do it. The third group says, it’s a long way off. It’s a war we’re not involved in. Why is that in our interest? Why don’t we keep the money here at home, those three factions are going to be debating over the next six months. And it’s one of the most important debates in modern America. I belong to the group that grew up in the shadow of World War Two. We believe that failing to stop Hitler, and Mussolini and the Imperial Japanese led to a worldwide war. We also believe that we had no choice except to contain the Soviet Union through a Cold War, which lasted from 1946 to 1989. So we had 43 years of Americans are maintaining a worldwide defense system against an empire that was threatening to occupy the whole planet. Now we’re at a place where you have to ask yourself, let’s say the we allow the Ukrainians to lose. Does Russia then sit on the Polish border and for how long before they decide that they want Poland back to? Or if we in fact, decided we’re going to help them? Do we help them justify to a tie? What do we help them to actually win? Which would mean pushing Russia back? I think this debate is really important worth you’re paying attention to, it’s not going to go away. And over the next six months or a year. We’re going to sort out America’s role in the world in a very important way.
