Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think there is some merit on not seeing every conflict in military terms and seeking to use non-military means to mitigate/defuse them. It doesn't always work, of course, and I wouldn't be a pacifist if I were in the Ukraine. But if you ask the question "What can Ireland most usefully contribute to reducing the harm and resolving the conflict", then military assistance would not be high on the list. The USA may have a different capability and contribution to make.
