Meet the press. “We need to be very clear that while we are considering all options, the use of chemical weapons is definitely something that will change our calculations.”
Cheney went on to assume that Russia’s military was weak and that the Kremlin was failing to achieve its goal. “[The Russian military] Putin is probably not as capable as he thought, “Cheney said. “And they need to understand that in the face of increasing brutality, the United States will consider and consider every possible step, along with our NATO allies,” he added.
Although Liz Cheney called for an escalation against Russia, she called on some of her colleagues to go for a no-fly-zone, which speaks volumes for a war with Russia, as NATO forces would have to shoot for such a move.
