Russian dictator Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine in February has precipitated an impressive, and these days rare, degree of bipartisan support here for the people of Ukraine, translating into billions in aid and vast arms transfers to the beleaguered defenders. Despite punishing sanctions and military reverses, however, Putin appears determined to continue his murderous aggression. Indeed, he threatens to escalate the conflict further and punish those assisting Ukraine, including with nuclear weapons. As the war in Ukraine’s actual and potential costs continue to grow – notably, with President Biden seeking another $33 billion for emergency humanitarian assistance and arms for that country, hard questions about America’s role there must be urgently addressed.
