Hawks want Biden to take the fight with Russia global

“Hawkish critics of the Biden administration have been constantly agitating for escalation over Ukraine for the last year and a half. Whatever Biden has done in support of Ukraine, hawks complain that he has been too slow and too stinting in what the U.S. provides, and they have often urged Washington to intensify or widen the war. Fortunately for the U.S. and Europe, Biden has ignored their most aggressive demands and slow-walked the rest. The latest proposal from a prominent Biden critic, however, promises to repeat some of the worst mistakes of the Cold War while having little or no effect on the fighting in Europe.” (09/07/23)
