Tucker is half right. There is no reason for the US to be involved in the Russian/Ukraine conflict. Western Europe’s looming energy crisis is thanks largely to Washington forcing them to take Ukraine’s side over their own interests.
The problem is Tucker pivots towards his own neocon position, which is that China is the “real” threat, which is just as false as those who target Russia.
Tucker and Rep. Mike Turner really went at it over whether or not the U.S. should send more troops to support Ukraine against Russian aggression:
