Obama weighs sending lethal assistance to Ukraine
I seriously hope that we do not go down this road. If we start providing the Ukrainians with weapons we will be in a proxy war with Russia in no time and we will be right back to where we were a few decades ago.

The shift suggests the White House is growing increasingly concerned that its reliance on punishing Russia with economic sanctions isn't doing enough to change President Vladimir Putin's thinking about backing fighters in ethnic-Russian eastern Ukraine.
