Western Foot-Dragging on Ukraine is Unforgivable

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022 and the West has procrastinated until now in providing Ukraine with a wider range of weaponry, aside from anti-aircraft missiles and anti-tank missiles. There is constantly the Western idea of only providing Ukraine with defensive weapons and only now at the last minute when Ukraine is threatened with a Russian offensive in Donbas is the West mobilizing to provide Ukraine with a wider range of weaponry. This fallacious thinking is based on the idea of avoiding an escalation of the war for fear of provoking WWIII. Therefore the West is only rushing to provide Ukraine weapons at the last minute to avert Ukrainian defeat. This is a mistaken approach. The Russian forces are corrupt, incompetent and suffer from low morale. The highly motivated and skilled Ukrainian forces certainly have the potential to completely evict the Russian occupiers from Ukrainian territory and they need comprehensive assistance from the West so as to make this happen as soon as possible. The sooner the Russian occupiers can be kicked out of sovereign Ukraine the sooner will this war also end. Comprehensive armament of Ukraine will certainly help put an end to this war. The West needs not currently fear WWIII, the Russian military surely is in no shape to invade NATO countries.
