Former commander urges Nato to send arms to Ukraine | World news | theguardian.com

A former commander of Nato in Europe has called for the alliance to send arms and military advisers to Ukraine to help it fight Moscow-backed separatists.

James Stavridis said during a visit to London: "I think we should provide significant military assistance to the Ukrainian military. I don't think we should limit ourselves to, non-lethal aid. I think we should provide ammunition, fuel, logistics. I think cyber-assistance would be very significant and helpful, as well as advice and potentially advisers.

"I don't think there needs to be huge numbers of Nato troops on the ground. The Ukrainian military can resist what's happening, but they need some assistance in order to do that."

Yeah let's just escalate things until WWIII! Was this guy too young during the Cold War or was he one with the neocons who believed they can "win" WWIII?
