EVERYONE, from what I can tell, is trying EVERYTHING to avoid a war between NATO and Russia.
But good moral people will not allow Putin to just start taking over sovereign Countries. Some things ARE worth fighting for.
It's all up to Putin. He seems to be the one running the show right now. Take it up with him.

We don't go to war over "countries". We didn't go to war in WWII over Poland, we went to war over ideals and the preservation of a way of life. If we go to war, it won't be over Ukraine, it'll be over western ideals and to preserve western democracy and the democratic way of western life.

This maybe what lights the fuse:
NATO nations can send jets to Ukraine;
NATO countries supporting Ukraine against the Russian invasion have a “green light” to send fighter jets as part of their military aid, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday.

Any evidence for that? Anything at all?

Not worth a single American life.
Nor would I expect them to get involved if Montana was attacked.

THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR TO ITALY RAZOV ON SENDING ARMS TO UKRAINE
"We are certainly interested in ensuring that the negotiations are effective. In this context, it seems shocking that the decision to supply lethal weapons to Ukraine was taken just as the Russian and Ukrainian delegations were sitting at the table of the first round of negotiations in Gomel. In fact those weapons will be used to kill the Russian military, which, you will agree, adds further complications to the relations between states. Furthermore, it is difficult to predict in which hands these weapons will end up and against whom they may be used. "
Sergey Razov, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Italy in an interview today with AdnKronos
How that translates in practical terms in this real life scenario I have no idea.
