Mitt Romney spent the past few decades stabbing conservatives in the back at every opportunity.
Romney perfectly fits the definition of a RINO.
But Mitt Romney turned pale as a ghost when Laura Ingraham asked this one question on Fox News.
Mitt Romney is an adamant supporter of escalating America’s involvement in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
This has many worried that Romney and other hawks could be on the verge of pushing the United States into a war with Russia where nuclear weapons are launched.
Romney is even demanding Joe Biden grant Poland permission to hand over their MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukrainian forces to help boost their air defenses.
However, Laura Ingraham is questioning whether or not the “war hawk consensus” in the media is a good idea.
During her monologue on Thursday, Ingraham asked if these older MiG-29s were even effective against the Russians, and if so, did Ukrainian forces even know how to operate them.
This is precisely the time, now is the time for vigorous and open debate. And one voice that should be heard is that of U.S. Navy Reserve Officer Blake Herzinger, who writes in Foreign Policy that, “Most of Ukraine’s fighter aircraft are still in the fight, flying approximately five to 10 missions per day using a pool of about 50 jets. Russian aircraft are flying nearly 200 missions per day, but keeping their planes primarily within Russian airspace. Both sides are likely exercising extreme caution to avoid ground-based air defense systems. Given this knowledge, a score of Soviet-era air superiority assets would not meaningfully improve Ukraine’s military situation.” And there’s more. “Poland’s MiGs are decades old, and many were hand-me-downs when the Poles received them. Fighters, especially older ones, require considerable maintenance, as well as an insured pipeline of spare parts and munitions. Ukraine’s capability to sustain those extra aircraft is unclear.”
Should any country directly intervene to stop Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Putin has already promised to use any means necessary, including deploying nuclear weapons, to stop them.
Even though hawks like Romney won’t even consider such a question, most Americans agree with Ingraham’s point about whether providing Ukraine with ineffective weapons that only serve to push America closer to war with Russia is a good idea or not.
