At this time we have not been attacked and Russia has not declared was on the US.  So why should we get involved?

Maybe you should read a bit more about what you were actually doing in World War II before the declaration of war happened. The Wikipedia article on Germany’s declaration is as good a place as any.

My entire point, which you seem to have missed, is that Todd (and apparently yourself) would have been against the USA being involved in Europe then just as you are against it now.

     If my memory serves me the US was trying to stay out of Europe until it was attacked. NAZIs held a famous rally in Madison Square Garden on February 20, 1939.

     

     Not giving a shit about people far away about which we knew nothing didn't help at all. There was no NATO, but there was industrial strength peacemongering. No peace follows the mongering. That's not what it's for.

Russia gains ground: Russian forces shift target to Donetsk as Zelenskyy vows Ukraine will win back captured Luhansk

Ukraine prematurely requests aid, and it's a doozy of a number: Ukraine unveils $750 billion recovery plan as Russia sets sights on Donetsk

Meanwhile, no formal settlement talks are under way.  Winter is coming.
