“Rather than bolstering Putin, Xi, and Khamenei by abandoning Ukraine, the US and our allies should be accelerating the flow of weapons and ammunition to Kyiv.”
WASHINGTON—Michael R. Pompeo, Hudson distinguished fellow and seventieth US secretary of state, made the following statement on the importance of funding Ukraine:
“The United States must stand with Ukraine in its existential fight for national survival.
“Make no mistake: the outcome of this war will have a direct impact on US national security. Should Putin prevail—whether on the battlefield or through a war of attrition that leads to ill-conceived diplomacy—the war would be felt well beyond Ukraine’s borders, including by strengthening a Russia-China-Iran alliance that aims to weaken the US and our allies across the globe.
“Rather than bolstering Putin, Xi, and Khamenei by abandoning Ukraine, the US and our allies should be accelerating the flow of weapons and ammunition to Kyiv to further decimate Russian military capabilities. The Biden administration should reverse its policy of denying weapons and adequate weapons supplies that would help Ukrainian forces end the fighting sooner than the current path we are on.
“Asked what his strategy was for the Cold War, President Reagan responded, ‘We win, they lose.’ For the likes of Putin, Xi, and Khamenei, put me in the Reagan camp.”
