President Biden is scheduled to provide an update on Russia and Ukraine this morning at 9:45 Eastern time.
Pure speculation on my part: Since the description used at the video link is so vague – “an Update on Russia and Ukraine”– I am hoping that this is more than what is being reported on in the press, which is another weapon package going to Ukraine.
I thought something was probably up when President Biden met with the Secretary of Defense, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Combatant Commanders on Tuesday, in a very public fashion.
There’s no doubt that we will be providing Ukraine with more of the same kinds of weapons, but it’s my hope that they have figured out a way to include some new kinds of weapons – that we can send without going over the (publicly undefined) line the U.S. is determined not to cross. And with good reason.
Almost every day I say out loud in my head “we have to find a way to do more”. It’s my hope that the clever people in this administration have come up with a way to do just that.
