Funding losing battle is ‘immoral,’ writer says

To the editor:

In (a column) in the Courier, George Weigel encouraged the continued fighting in Ukraine where more people will be killed. Yes, I believe he is right about helping in humanitarian ways – medicine, food, shelter – but to help Ukraine fight a losing battle is simply immoral.

Mr. Weigel thinks only if NATO — mainly the U.S. — gives Zelensky enough money and bombs the end will come soon. He is wrong. … The U.S. has no war plan. Biden thinks we will “wear down” Russia which has a steady economy, nuclear arms, and over a million soldiers.

Zelenskyy has not given any reason to think he wants to negotiate peace. All his speeches to Western nations have been to plug his propaganda for more aid. And Mr. Biden agrees!
