We Agree

 Two days ago I wrote:

By supporting Ukraine we have, for the time being, taken the Russians off the chessboard of Europe by tying them down in Ukraine. That is no small feat, accomplished at the cost of essentially zero NATO lives, but quite a few NATO dollars, of which we provided most.

Today CDR Salamander, a retired Naval officer, writes at Substack about the need to continue supporting Ukraine, and concludes:

At a relatively modest cost in our treasure and almost none of our blood, we are wearing down Russia’s ability to project power for a generation, perhaps two. Perhaps many more generations should demographic instability mate with political instability.

I believe we are, as the saying goes, singing from the same page of the same hymnal.
