Polling shows the great majority of Americans support aid to Ukraine, so a bit like being pro choice too.
What did polling show before we invaded Afghanistan in October, 2001 (war on terror) and before we invaded Iraq in March, 2003 over WMD? IIRC, most Americans were for it and both had widespread bi-partisan support.
Who said to his opponent in a famous Presidential Debate, 'there you go again'?
Many Americans (uniquely in the World it seems), actually believed Real President Cheney's BS about Saddam being involved in 9/11.
(Not what the intel agencies told him or Bush that, so he ignored them and set up his own one).
As the fires were still burning in the rubble of the Towers the core of 60's draft dodgers in that administration were planning on attacking Iraq, some complaining of 'not enough bombing targets' in Afghanistan.
Of course when became clear to all but the most dumb/gullible that the secularist Iraqi regime had no time for Islamists and worse, 'Mission Accomplished' was anything but, then the grim and increasing bodies coming home, it very quickly became very unpopular.
So what has that deception got to do with Ukraine?
US forces are not engaged in Ukraine, nor any NATO ones.
This is a real thing, not GOP BS to go after a nation that had nothing to do with Al Queda.
A clear cut invasion of a sovereign nation by a hostile state, that unlike Iraq in 2003, (militarily defanged in 1991), is a threat to the US. Seen those 'events' on Russian TV about how their nukes can destroy US?
The fact of Putin being best buds with the previous White House occupant rather muddies the waters perhaps with some in the GOP, as I said, wrong side of history, Bund 2.0
Anyway, look who has turned up in Ukraine, he needs to have a word with weirdo Rand when he gets back.https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/202 ... n-senators
Like reproductive choice, around 70% of Americans broadly support aid to Ukraine.
