Modern history is replete with violent conflicts where the U.S. failed to take the lead in time, and the results were catastrophic: hundreds of thousands dead and millions displaced. Rwanda, Bosnia and Balkans are just a few examples. Let us hope that we have learned the hard way that when we could make a difference, we should.

In Ukraine today, Russian-backed forces continue to reinforce and attack Ukrainian positions. The Minsk II Agreement was broken before the ink was even dry. Losses on both sides are heavy, far heavier than publicly acknowledged. Russia is using its newest equipment — tanks, long range rockets, cluster munitions, drones and electronic warfare, while Ukrainian forces lack such modern equipment. Russia, of course, still denies that its troops are present. Relying on diplomatic solutions alone will not work until the military door is closed for Russian President Putin, and closing that door is actually simpler than many would have you believe.
