Ms. Harris went to Poland, apparently, to validate U.S. impotence, incompetence or outright malice with respect to “Putin’s war.”
I am glad the administration took the trouble to express solidarity with Poland. I am glad, too, for the announcement of $13 billion in U.S. aid to support both security and humanitarian objectives in the region. But I am not glad about the administration’s declaration to defend “every inch” of NATO.
I would have preferred a simple demand that Putin stop the war; something comparable to, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
Absent clarity or leadership of that caliber I’m left with the impression that our president actively seeks a long war of insurgency against Russia, a CIA-led proxy war that exploits and makes pawns of the Ukrainian people.
Such a thing I would not condone.
