There’s a reason nuclear powers haven’t gotten into direct conflict. Putin is brutalizing Ukraine, and the week since the invasion began has shown the world the resilience of Ukrainians. Any direct military action is going to create a nuclear problem, which ICE T put very succinctly on Twitter.
So we’re left with humanitarian and diplomatic options. We pass huge defense budgets every year that we can’t use against anyone with the bomb. All that money could be put to much better and immediate use on direct aid and assisting refugees. Something we should do for all refugees, not just Ukrainian ones.
