Davidson: Ratcheting Up Military Aid To Ukraine Runs A Risk Of Escalation


“I think it’s a little naive to think that we can keep ratcheting up our assistance to the Ukrainians, whether through the provision of more and more advanced weapons, intelligence, targeting intelligence … and we’re just going to expect Moscow to accept that and not do anything in response?” Federalist Senior Editor John Daniel Davidson asked.

“What disturbs me is that we’re not even having a debate about this,” he added. “The people who are calling for this escalation on the part of the West, of the U.S. and NATO allies, are not even acknowledging that there’s a risk involved. Just acknowledge that there’s a risk involved and then make a case for why it’s worth the risk. But instead, we’re not having a debate about it.”
