Foreign policy expert Walid Phares says that the United States has an obligation to support Ukraine, but it should not allow the country to drag America into the war. 

"We need to defend Ukraine, but not give all our decisions to the Ukrainian government because they could drag the United States into a war that the Russians may transform into a nuclear confrontation," Phares said Monday on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.

"What we are living now are moments that are very similar to either World War One, World War Two, and way beyond the Cold War," he said. "Why? Because there is no plan in the Biden administration to stop that war.

"Of course we have a priority as a NATO member and as a defender of the free world to make sure that the Ukrainian state will not fall."

Phares said he believes the United States jumped too quickly to help Ukraine, without a plan. 

"They went too far by continuing to just send weapons without having a plan," he said. "Where did we start the negotiation? We're dealing with a superpower that has nuclear abilities and capabilities."
