The West must consider intervening to prevent a massacre in Ukraine

“Prove that you are with us,” President Volodymyr Zelensky pleaded with the European Union on Tuesday. “Prove that you won’t let us go. Prove that you are truly European, and then life will triumph over death and light will triumph over darkness. “

When they give the brave Ukrainian leader a standing ovation from hundreds of miles away, even if they know his life is in danger before Putin’s forcesWhich edge is closer to Kyiv and closer to committing atrocities against thousands of innocent people.

Lawmakers say they are powerless to thwart an almost inevitable Russian attack – the argument against helping Ukraine is that by attacking Russia militarily, the United States risks an escalation that leads to the deaths of millions, and inflates a madman with a nuclear trigger finger.

But when the interpreter interprets Zelensky’s words, it becomes clear that sympathy, sanctions, and the sending of military equipment are not enough. Hundreds of people have died, including at least 16 children. Rockets with increasing ferocity Leveling the buildings. The Russians bombed a Holocaust memorial on Tuesday.

Sanctions may have isolated Vladimir Putin, but if his deadly convoy continuesif he insists on committing mass murder against a sovereign nation, we cannot morally stand.

Maybe that’s the no-fly zone Zelensky requested on Tuesday. It is possible that it is the target of drones that attack Russia’s worst weapons. Maybe it’s covert operations, use of proxy forces, active cyber warfare, precision sabotage actions. There are brief measures for a full-blown invasion that we’re sure the Pentagon has considered. Putin’s so-called bluff moves, which gave him a nosebleed, gave Ukrainian forces more time, made him think twice about moving forward.

Indeed, they are exactly the kind of push and blur tactics Putin has deployed against the international community for decades.

At the very least, Biden needs to stop saying unequivocally that “we’re not going to fight Russia,” as he’s said many times. Telegram is exactly what we will and will not give Putin more time and flexibility to squeeze more than Kyiv.

Global public opinion has turned against Russia. Even the initial allies were appalled that this would happen. President Biden has shown admirable restraint so far, hurt Putin where he can and see if diplomacy – and Ukrainians’ own great determination – can win the day. But like Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin before him, Putin does not act according to reason or care about human life.

And, like Hitler and Stalin before him, history will judge harshly the countries that let him out of it – and that’s us. The West must consider intervening to prevent a massacre in Ukraine
