America can’t, and mustn’t, go to war with Russia over Ukraine. President Joe Biden stated this truth this day last week – and sent foreign policy hawks into a sputtering rage. Their reaction says more about the hawks’ mindless rigidity than it does about Biden’s oft-questioned mental acuity.

He made clear that the US response should be proportional to the magnitude of Moscow’s aggression; that the US can’t guard Europe’s frontiers if the major European powers themselves are divided; and that the Kremlin has concerns about Ukraine joining Nato.
