Some days all you can do is shake your head in wonder. It seems almost impossible to me that our political leadership might be contemplating sending an army to fight in Ukraine, but the signs are mounting.
We already have boots on the ground in the battlefield — allegedly inventory takers attempting to account for weapons and stores previously delivered. We also have boots near the ground in Romania — avowedly ready to deploy at a moment’s notice. And we have an increasingly bellicose-sounding commander in chief whose grip on reality is just loose enough to give the order.
Worse, the American people probably don’t know that the Ukrainian government and military are close to final collapse. To save them will be like saving a car after it has been totaled.
