Gip you'll get no arguments from me about the merits of Biden's broad economic, immigration or energy policies, I've been highly critical of all tho was supportive of the bi-partisan infrastructure bill....long overdue in my view and much needed as you yourself suggested. I see no benefit to US global interests by enabling the Russians to gain their foreign policy designs by the force of arms. A victory in that regard is victory for authoritarian regimes around the globe, to China's Xi re: Taiwan, his expansionist designs in the South China Sea, and an overt reversal of our position re: allies both in Europe and the Pacific. In my view it would serve to substantially weaken US global credibility and substantially hinder our ability to further our global interests. It stands in direct contrast to long standing and very effective US policy that won the cold war. It surely is not in the best interest of the Ukrainians to abandon them to the horrors of the Russian war criminal, ignore our obligations as signatory under the Budapest Memorandum and turn our back on US support for democracy and national self-determination.
