Asked if the U.S. should send troops to fight beside the Ukrainians, Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said Sunday the time may have come.
Russian President Vladimir Putin “will only stop when we stop him,” said Coons.
“We are in a very dangerous moment where it is important that … we in Congress and the administration come to a common position about when we are willing to go the next step and to send not just arms but troops to the aid in defense of Ukraine.”
*** and ***
As U.S. forces fighting and killing Russians in Ukraine would ignite a U.S.-Russia war, which could escalate to nuclear war, we are not going to take that first step and risk the security and survival of our country, even if our staying out of this two-month war means the defeat of Ukraine.
Call it the Eisenhower position.

I often agree with Pat Buchanan and this time is no exception.
I would point out that the USA overthrew the elected Government in the Ukraine when it was pro-Russia.
I would also point out that the USA via “Voice of America” encouraged the Hungarian revolution and then (once again) “hung the poor dupes out to dry”.
The USA should just stop being the instigator and MYOB!
Oh BTW, Chris Coons should go put boots on the ground; not “our” young women and men.
