1. It's good that the U.S. is staying out of it...

After what we did to Iraq and Afghanistan, had we sent troops into Ukraine, we'd dilute any good that might result. Not that the countries we invaded and occupied were liberal entities in any sense of the word, but they were autonomous and of no threat to us, much like Ukraine's relationship with Russia.

If Ukraine emerges victorious, perhaps Belarus will follow the lead and get rid of Putin's puppet government in their country. Putin's fašade as a powerful leader will have crumbled and he'll be thrown under the bus, and perhaps given an appropriate Mussolinian-like sendoff into the annals of history.

And if it's true that the liberal international order has been revitalized, Trump should be shitting his pants. George W. Bush, too.
