The Biden administration is gradually expanding the U.S. military role in Ukraine. Not only are more lethal U.S. weapons being sent, but allies are being urged to do the same and in some cases the weapons depend on U.S. inputs to be targeted accurately. This slow escalation is a reasonable response to Russian moves against the Kyiv government, but Washington seems to have grown complacent about how Moscow might react. Eventually Russia too will ratchet up, and when that happens the West may find itself facing unpalatable choices. I have written a commentary for Forbes here.
