1/22/21 David Swanson on Joe Biden’s Dangerous Cabinet Appointments

by | Jan 23, 2021 | Interviews

David Swanson discusses the foreign policy of the incoming Biden administration. On the positive side, he thinks there’s a good likelihood of ending U.S. support for the war in Yemen, lifting some of America’s oppressive economic sanctions and better relations with Iran and Cuba. But on the other hand, many of Biden’s key appointments have been people who support more war and international hegemony for the United States at any cost. In particular, this means expanding NATO even farther into Eastern Europe and challenging China for global economic supremacy. Peaceful relations with both Russia and China, Scott reminds us, are absolutely crucial not just for America, but for the future of the human race itself. Any policy that threatens this peace must be energetically opposed.
