    U.S. Considers Arming Ukraine to Fight Separatists

    "A growing number of senior military and civilian advisors to President Obama support providing defensive weapons to Ukraine as that country comes under increasing attacks by Russian-backed separatist groups."

    The more the U.S. gets involved in foreign wars, the more our participation comes back to haunt us. After the debacle in Iraq, we should know better than to try to be the world's police, and that's not because we accept Putin or other dictatorships as justifiable governments, but because when we give people more guns or send in more troops, we just add to the quagmire of problems around the world and make enemies of ourselves abroad.

    I'm just grateful to live in a country with a proper constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Of course, Obama will consider arming them, since they can't really fight the Russians very much without arms.

    After a couple years, he will come to a conclusion - just like he almost has come to a conclusion about arming Syrian rebels forces.

    These things take time - enough time so that he will no longer be president when a someone actually comes to a decision.
