"And when he gets halfway across the bridge, you blow it up". LOLI think you have the point.
I think that this would be "the golden bridge" for the enemy, that Sun Tzu wrote about.

@Kevin Peacocke while we agree on most topics Kevin, I'm not sure I can fully concur that "there are very smart analysts in the Pentagon" lol. Perhaps there are, but I don't think the USA is seeking a diplomatic solution to this war, or even a cessation. Families of power in DC have made three generation careers on hating Russia. We have historically opposed Russia, even when they wanted to help us....say fight the Taliban or other terrorist groups. If one carefully reviews the US's steady military encroachment in Ukraine and the Baltics, one sees that there were dozens of provocations for this war, and equally, dozens of opportunities to prevent it. We nearly had a nuclear exchange with Russia in the 60's because of their placing missiles in Cuba. We should not be surprised that paranoid Russia bristled at the potential arming of Ukraine. Anyway, I fully agree with you actually. A compromise is needed. A bridge to Terabithia. And I might add, no one that I know, not even my wife, agrees with me on this topic. I am totally against our participation in this war, and believe we (USA) are partially responsible for it. From the general gist of this thread, I see that most here are solidly behind sending weapons and aid to Ukraine. The news media certainly is....pounding the drums nightly. I hope there are a few smart analysts that don't own stock in Raytheon ...as always, appreciate your posts..........FW Bill
