Before taking Eliot Cohen’s foreign policy advice and escalating into a hot war with Russia in Ukraine in the span of two weeks, you might want to pause and consider his track record.
“When you’re at war, you’re at war,” the saying goes, and if so, you have to accept the implications. So too in the present circumstance. The United States and its NATO allies are engaged in a proxy war with Russia.”
I will give credit where it is due.
This is exactly what is going on here. The political establishment led by disgusting warmongers like Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham and Chris Murphy have been engaged in a quiet proxy war with Russia in Donbas. Ukrainians are being used as cannon fodder in this war. Eliot Cohen himself has said in his previous article at The Atlantic that the goal is to turn Ukraine into Afghanistan.
“They are supplying thousands of munitions and hopefully doing much else—sharing intelligence, for example—with the intent of killing Russian soldiers. And because fighting is, as the military theorist Carl von Clausewitz said, “a trial of moral and physical forces through the medium of the latter,” we must face a fact: To break the will of Russia and free Ukraine from conquest and subjugation, many Russian soldiers have to flee, surrender, or die, and the more and faster the better. …”
Once again, an evil alliance of Jewish Russiagaters and neocons have incited a war in Ukraine to kill Russians. No one else wanted this war but them.
“Thus far the Biden administration has done an admirable job of winning the information war, mobilizing the NATO alliance, and imposing crippling (if not yet complete) sanctions on the Russian economy. It has, it appears, sped the delivery of some weapon systems (notably Javelin anti-tank missiles and Stinger man-portable surface-to-air missiles) to Ukrainian forces. But beyond those measures to prosecute this proxy war as a war, it is stumbling. …”
We also have to destroy the Russian economy.
These people haven’t caused enough human misery over the past 20 years.
“But perhaps the most pernicious note here was the hand-wringing over escalation. On the face of it, that is an absurd notion. Javelins kill Russian soldiers. Stingers kill Russian pilots and soldiers. A MiG-29 is just one more weapon that would kill Russian pilots and soldiers. And having already hinted that the United States would supply more sophisticated surface-to-air weapons to Ukraine, the notion that transferring fighter planes would escalate the conflict is simply preposterous. …”
We’re “handwringing” over escalating this conflict.
