Nor am I upset that they appear to prefer to fight and die rather than enter into negotiations that will leave Russians on their territory.
I get it. They are patriots supporting their country.
- But we normal Americans are patriots too, and our country is the United States.
- We expect Ukraine to pursue its national interests, but we expect America’s leadership to pursue America’s national interests.
- And it is in our national interest to get this war ended, even if it means Putin holds ground his forces conquered.
The whiners will whine that this is a betrayal of Ukraine.
We cannot betray a country that it not our own.
It is instead a rational and ruthless bit of realpolitik – we must pursue America’s interests, not Ukraine’s. Ending this war is in America’s interest...
