Biden’s position on arming Ukraine may not be widely accepted, but it is the right one.

Michael O’Hanlon: Issue at hand is whether to provide Kyiv with modern, Western-made heavy tanks. We have already shipped to Ukraine weapons systems that would have been unthinkable a year ago. There has been a method to the West’s madness in sticking with the approach, he says. The United States and allies have directly assisted Ukraine in the killing or wounding of more than 100,000 Russian soldiers. Western weapons have provided Kyiv with the necessary lethal capabilities, and U.S. intelligence systems have been part of the kill chain. The “Goldilocks policy” will continue to work only if we recognize its risks.
