Or we may not. It is in neither Russia's nor NATO's interest for this conflict to spread beyond its current borders. These are uncertain times so any outcome remains possible.So we may be on the inevitable path to bloodier war that spills beyond its present borders like World War I, when millions died.
Possibly, but what do you suggest as a solution?The entire planet may be in recession next year.
As I've said before, I live in Europe and the situation here has not changed. The European nations and alliances are holding firm in spite of some hardship. Putin's friendly EU nation (Hungary) has been unsuccessful in disrupting a united position. Some of those heavily dependent on Russian fuel imports are being assisted in finding other sources. I think your statement is fundamentally wrong and reflect your personal opinion rather than any reliable sources.Some European support for the war and the sanctions is already getting shaky due to mega economic/energy problems.

What evidence do you have to support this position? Do you really think that the USA will act unilaterally on mainland Europe without its NATO allies? Do you think that the NATO member states will endorse direct involvement by its armed forces, risking a world war? So whose soldiers and airmen are going to be putting their lives at risk?If we are really doing the right thing by supporting this proxy war with our money, weapons and global sanctions, we may need to up the ante to our solder's and airmen's lives if the Ukrainians cannot put a decisive victory together in time.
What are your sources for this? Again, I suspect that this is personal opinion hiding behind the 'I'm told' claim.I'm told our armed forces are lacking the large numbers of healthy young men it would take to go to kill people like we used to do in Vietnam. And are we rapidly using up our reserves of weapons and ammunition and are dipping into what is kept ready for use in our front line bases?
Quite the opposite. The USA and its NATO allies seem to be doing their best NOT to provoke a war while containing an aggressive dictator.I think we are unprepared to fight a major war, yet we seem to be provoking it.
