A Washington Post news article today reports after the strike on Western Airbases (and unknown losses) it's overdue for Biden to grow a pair and act:

A growing number of U.S. lawmakers ratcheted up pressure on President Biden on Sunday to increase military aid to Ukraine, including sending fighter jets and air defense systems that the administration rejected last week.
...
The bipartisan push underscores the growing hawkishness among many leaders on Capitol Hill, who have been urging Biden to do more to help Ukraine defend itself against Russian attacks as the war rages into its third week.

“[Russian President] Vladimir Putin and the Russians seem to be saying everything is escalatory. And yet they’re escalating every single day by coming into Ukraine with these weapons,” Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Separately, 58 members of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus on Sunday again urged the Biden administration to try to facilitate the fighter jet deal with Poland, as well as to provide Ukraine with other air defense systems, including drones and surface-to-air missiles.

“Russia’s advantage in this domain could soon develop into air dominance if the Ukrainians do not receive necessary military aid,” the caucus members, who are evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, said in a new statement. “We commend the Polish government for taking proactive steps to deliver MiG-29 jets to the Ukrainian Air Force. We urge assistance to help facilitate this deal, commit to replenishing our allies’ fleets with American-made aircraft and help advance the transfer of [other] aircraft to Ukraine as well.”


GET SOME BALLS MR. PRESIDENT!

No idea how or why so many people seem to think WWIII would be a good idea, but sure am glad Our President is acting calmly and rationally.

Rob Portman, lol. Screw that toolbag.

Steady as she goes Mr. President, you're doing well!

We need to let our leaders lead. They know way more than we do.
 
Biden may not be doing the most popular thing, but he's doing the right thing.

He's doing the popular thing as far as I'm concerned. I dont believe for a second that a large number of Americans want to go to war over Ukraine. If they do: they can catch a flight and head on over. Not my concern.

Yet, if they were President they would not send them.

This is 100% political.

According to the deplorables, we know what's best as individuals, not professionals or elected leaders.
 
They need to shut up and support the President. That is what is required now.

Interesting, I didn't know you've never criticized Trump for his actions or inactions.

That is exactly what the Putin's supporters are saying too.

Putinbots and Bidenbots and Trumpbots aren't really people, they are organic animatrons, human synthetics that programmed to always follow their der Fuhrer...or so it would seem.

When the shit hits the fan you pick a side and support it. Which is your side?
 
One talking head on either FOX or CNN (I have not watched the latter since 2016, but I have returned solely for its Ukraine coverage) says that now that Russia has supposedly asked China for military equipment, it opens the way for the United States to send jets to the Ukrainians to fly.

And more members of Congress from both sides of the aisle are pushing the Administration to send jets to the Ukrainians to defend themselves. No American pilots, of course.

For all we know, some prominent Dem bigwigs may at this very moment be preparing to "ask" President Biden (or more accurately his "advisers" who have the final word) for permission to do so.

The same was said about germany, it's their war not ours.

I'm not a "bot", only "bots" believe they have to join a "bot collective".

Let's be clear. They (and you) are arguing that the US should go to war with a nuclear power. Get the Congress to declare war first (that way this horrible idea will never happen).

Then you had better start considering a novel new way forward.

Clearly, Putin is not hesitant to use nuclear blackmail in order to reconstitute his beloved Soviet Union.

Blackmail is one thing (Cuban Missile Crisis ring a bell?), war with a nuclear power is another. Do you support actions that would be considered acts of war against Russia? I don't.
