    Should the US sends troops to Ukraine?

    With Ukraine possibly descending into civil war, should the US send in troops to support the government?

    No. Support? I'm on the fence.

    US troops? Hell no. If Europes not worried, I'm less than not worried.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    We should get Romania to request NATO protection...and give it to them in Spades.

    What could we gain from such action? A pile of dead Ukrainians, and a nuclear standoff with Russia?

    No thanks.

    This is a problem the EU got Ukraine into and it is a European country. The EU made itself dependant on Russian energy. The USA had warned them.
    Now this doesn't mean the US should sit on the fence. It should support its allies. But it is not an American problem and we should not make it ours.

    Maybe the free riders will better understand, what responsibility costs.

    We should get Romania to request NATO protection....and supply it in the Black Sea and in the country. I think a carrier group, a couple attack subs, perhaps a few dozen fighter bombers....and some seals might make Putin consider his current direction. Definitely rethink further expansion.

    We should work with our European and Asian allies to invest in renewable energy and drilling so that that goddamned bear can never roar at us again. A major program coordinated to end all dependency on both Russian and OPEC sources. And when the slavs squeal that we are unfairly locking them out, we should remind them that they brought it on themselves by thinking they were a more than an oil producing banana republic. We should show the world that we don't need them and that we are going to leave them behind. Such a move would do more than any show of military strength for our long term interests.

    In reality though, we'll do nothing of the sort and the Europeans will keep doing deals with the devil. The US should ensure that when the devil comes for his due, it's not us paying the tab. And part of that is not sending troops to guard Europe's frontiers.

    Without energy independence from Russia, all that will accomplish will be giving Putin an excuse to double down on military modernization/expansion.

    And who will be held responsible to sacrifice their domestic agenda to pay for the free worlds security? It ain't gonna be the swiss.
