The idea of American enforcement of a no-fly zone over Ukraine is a “non-starter” in light of the 20 years of war U.S. troops went though in the Middle East, AUSN Executive Director Jason Beardsley told MSNBC this week.
“We’re reeling still from our 20 years inside Iraq and Afghanistan. American lives are at risk when we enforce these no-fly zones,” he said.
“After those 20 years, we have to look back and make a decision. Does the United States want to write more checks with the sons and daughters of our American citizens in the service of defending the skies over Ukraine?”
