Any thing that is "all over the news is a distraction from something else".Ukraine is the red herring for Taiwan. Us gets sucked into Ukraine and China invades Taiwan. I don’t give two flips about a country that is dumb enough to give up its nuclear weapons.
News out now that Putin wants to install pro Russian government in Ukraine. He is feeling threatened by nato expansion, and looking to keep from getting completely hemmed in by nato.
I say it's a shame for the Ukranians, but not our fight. Give them some arms, help make it as painful for Russia as possible but not worth US lives.
It's not our problem until it is our problem, then we have less allies and will be engaging an entrenched enemy. Rings awfully similar to WW1 and WW2.
