Noted Ukraine boosters Adam and Jeff turn their attention back to the ongoing war in the Ukraine. Jeff suggests that Russia's image as a military colossus has taken an enormous hit due to it having become bogged down in a war of attrition in the Ukraine over the past two years. Although Russia managed to seize about 20% of Ukraine's territory in the early weeks of the invasion, Ukraine has fought back valiantly and essentially held the Russians in check for nearly two years. Jeff and Adam are in favor of new military aid packages to Ukraine but want to make sure that they do not fund the purchases of Beverly Hills mansions by mid-level government clerks in Kyiv. Although there are concerns about Russia having designs on Europe, Jeff points out that there is a big difference between wanting something and having the ability to go out and get it--a dilemma that every high school teenager must face at the school dance. Adam and Jeff also point out that the EU population and GDP are roughly 3 times and 15 times larger, respectively, than that of Russia and that it is unlikely that Russia, having already been bloodied in Ukraine, would be able to mount any real attack against Europe, particularly a regional power such as Poland. Indeed, Jeff argues that Poland, like Ukraine, would be a very tough customer for Putin to take on for many reasons such as the Poles' undying hatred for Russia due to its past historical atrocities against Poland.
