Hate has been criticizing Biden for not invoking a NFZ when Putin was amassing the Russian military at Ukraine's northern and eastern borders, which is, to my knowledge, a position that wasn't espoused by anyone at the time.

Antiwar journalist Mark Ash has come around to the position that the since war in Ukraine appears to be on a trajectory to adversely affect the entire planet, it would make more sense to confront Russia militarily now.

Sheri and I discuss the situation almost daily. While our hearts all along have been on the side of intervening militarily, our fears of provoking WW3 have told us to give the sanctions a chance. We're still torn, but maybe Mr. Ash is right.

What do y'all think?

    My wife and I have the same conversations every day. We have no good answers either. There seems to be no good options.

    We hear pundits say if the US gets involved Putin "wouldn't dare" use nukes. Our response is "is that a guarantee?"

    It's no guarantee, but if you're wrong...

    IMO, this is a close call, but I don't think so.

    If, before, Ukraine had requested a NFZ, we could have done it. Then, we could have declared, that a Russian attack on NATO planes would have been Russia's act of war against NATO.

    Now, considering all we gave given away to Russia, for us to enter Ukrainian air space with military aircraft, Putin would certainly consider Russia to be under attack. And, considering who Putin is? We, very possibly, could be launching WW3.

    I think that our past hesitation has been our loss. That's why I advocated proaction.
