We’ve made the point repeatedly that forcing Ukraine into NATO will in no way serve the interests of the United States, and in fact could hurt us here in ways from which we will never recover. And, by the way, talking about it doesn’t seem to have helped Ukraine either. For saying that, and that’s all we’ve said, here’s the reaction we’ve received, and this is just a small selection.
