I DO understand the hesitation of the Obama administration to send arms into the Middle East which might result in arming the wrong people. I do understand the decision to arm the government of Iraq in order to halt the spread of ISIS. I DO understand the hesitation in sending weapons into Syria. But, I simply do NOT understand the hesitation to arm the people of Ukraine who are fighting against forces that are supplied by the Soviet Union, oops apology, I meant Russia. There is no doubt that thousands of Russian soldiers are fighting alongside separatists and they posses modern weapons. So, why the hesitation to send guns and ammunition to the forces that defend Ukraine?
President Obama is now reconsidering his opposition to send such weapons. There is a chance weapons will be heading to Ukraine. The only questions is why the delay? These are the moments when one wonders about the leadership abilities of Barack Obama?
