"We have to fight Russia over there so we don't have to fight them here"
Thanks to Pamela Karlan for so aptly capturing Democratic elites' delusional, Reaganite, jingoistic Cold Warrior mindset in your claim that we need to arm Ukraine "so they fight the Russians there and we don't have to fight them here" & we remain "that shining city on the hill." pic.twitter.com/C78aNThnUk

While Democratic elites are salivating over arming Ukraine to fight Russia "so we don't have to fight them here", Ukraine's president is actually trying to bring peace to the country.
Most eloquent and persuasive argument against arming Ukraine came from Jack Matlock, Reagan's ambassador to Soviet Union, who observed that such border nations would act more provocatively if backed by US. You're being unfair to Reaganites. Matlock 2016:
Aren’t there a lot of Ukrainian Neo-Nazis? And is it possible arming them might be something that in retrospect seems like a regrettable choice?
Oh yes. Why create new propaganda tropes when the old ones still work so well...
Continuing to normalize rehabilitate the security state.
"National interest in promoting democracy worldwide”? Like supporting coups in Bolivia and Venezuela and helping Saudi Arabia commit genocide in Yemen? What a sick joke and shame on the MSM for not doing their job and reporting the hypocrisy of it all. Absolutely repugnant!
