Matt Kibbe is joined by Dan Caldwell, vice president of foreign policy at Stand Together, to discuss the increasingly fervent calls for U.S. intervention in the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Too many armchair pundits fail to realize the catastrophic implications of a conventional war with Russia, or the fact that it is ultimately the Ukrainian people who will pay the greatest price for a prolonged conflict rather than a diplomatic solution. Additionally, calls for a no-fly zone over Ukraine fail to take into account what enforcing such a policy would actually mean, and how quickly the situation could escalate into an all-out global war. All this goes to show how little politicians in Washington have learned from the country’s costly, multi-decade interventions in the Middle East, and that the military industrial complex will be deterred by neither evidence nor common sense.
