Why don’t you actually name some members of this so-called “Putin-Wing” of the Republican Party, Mark Levin?— The Columbia Bugle ?? (@ColumbiaBugle) March 14, 2022

How about instead we promote de-escalation of a regional crisis that doesn’t involve America?pic.twitter.com/yQHkVQ1YyC
Iraq was a disaster.
The unintended consequences of Iraq was the rise of ISIS which spilled over into Syria, empowering Iran and unleashing terrorism and a refugee crisis in Europe.
Afghanistan was a disaster.
The unintended consequences of meddling in Afghanistan to own the Soviets was ultimately Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, 9/11 and the whole arc of the Global War on Terror (GWOT) and a failed twenty year occupation that lasted a generation and costed us trillions of dollars.
Libya was a disaster.
The unintended consequences of NATO overthrowing Gaddafi was sparking a refugee crisis in the Mediterranean and encouraging Russia’s intervention in Syria and Ukraine.
So, one might ask the obvious question: what are the unintended consequences of meddling in Ukraine, recklessly stoking tensions with Russia and declaring total economic war on Russia?
“In 2016, Donald Trump showed that a Republican candidate can run, and win, without swearing fealty to the permanent war party. He ran on a platform of “America First,” and since that moment almost all Republican politicians and commentators have at least paid lip service to the idea.
Yet now, all of that is being thrown aside for the sake of Ukraine.
In 2019, would-be America First Senator Josh Hawley delivered a speech about “Rethinking America’s Foreign Policy Consensus,” condemning “endless wars” and “metastasizing commitments” to far-off countries, and demanding a new narrower focus on keeping America and Americans safe and prosperous.
And then Ukraine came along, and Hawley suddenly looked like any other Republican from 2006. …”
We’re about to find out.
As many people have pointed out, this time the evil dictator who is the target of regime change has WMD and hypersonic missiles. How much trouble could this evil dictator create for us around the world?
