It’s hard to recall, but once upon a time, the majority of American politicians, including Democrats, were able to set aside partisan bickering for at least a moment in the face of foreign aggression against the United States.

Immediately after news broke that Iran had shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane, Leftists began blaming America, using phrases such as “crossfire” (there was none) and “tit-for-tat” (none of that, either). Pete Buttigieg was the first big-profile Democrat caught embracing that concept.
