Possibility of Worrisome Escalation

The US military is pondering giving the Javelin top-attack ATGM to the Ukrainians.

Some cool range footage of the missile, although the title of the video seems to be needlessly confronting / provocative. Actually looking at their channel all of the titles seem to be basically like that. :/

Do we have a source on the US considering transferring ATGMs to the Ukrainian military?

I doubt the US provides ATGM to Ukraine. 1) Trump doesn't want to antagonize Russia 2) US does not want Russia perfecting defenses when Ukraine uses them or more likely sells them. The best they could hope for is money to make their own, which are pretty good but not great, or an emptying of Warsaw Pact stocks from Eastern Europe with the help of a little grea$e.
