If We Supply Them With Cream Pies, Ukraine Will Be Saved!

According to the Chicago Tribune's reading of a Wall Street Journal article which is behind a paywall, President Invertebrate is willing to send Ukraine noms, but no stingy things.
(T)he Wall Street Journal reported that Ukraine's interim government asked for arms, ammunition and intelligence support but the United States had decided against further assistance beyond rations because of concerns about stoking tensions with Russia.
Stoking tensions with Russia? What are they going to do, undermine our every foreign policy endeavor? I get not sending troops, but a couple of anti-tank weapons might actually deter Putin or make him think twice.

The cream pie option is still on the table. As Admiral Ackbar might say, "It's impossible to repel pies of this magnitude!"
