The false choice of confronting Russia or China
In supporting Ukraine, the US is not just doing the right thing. It is shoring up its own long-term position in Asia. The wonder is that so many American conservatives can’t see it. Even those who want to help Ukraine posit a false trade-off between confronting Russia and facing the “real” challenge of China. They include former defence officials (Elbridge Colby) and a plausible 47th president (Ron DeSantis).
