How Did We Get into this War in Ukraine, and What Are We Not Saying About It?
Just how did the US, the UK, and much of Europe get involved in a shooting war with Russia without having to do any of the actual shooting themselves? Are there grave downside risks to our unconditional feel-good support for the brave and bold Ukrainians, the clear winners of the propaganda battle? And will other dominoes be endangered soon, at an even greater cost in blood and treasure? What other questions must be asked?
