Scott talks with Doug Bandow about the escalation of the war in Yemen and the tension with Russia over Ukraine. Bandow explains why the Hawk’s characterization of Iran’s involvement in Yemen is deceptive. They also discuss how it’s in the interest of every faction with decision-making power to keep the war going. Towards the end, they turn to the situation in eastern Europe. Bandow points to a number of topics that often get left out of discussions on this issue— such as the misdeeds of Ukrainian Nationalists and NATO’s history of pushing Russia around— that help to paint a more realistic picture of what is happening.
Discussed on the show:
- “Biden Administration Goes All in for Saudis and Emiratis” (Antiwar.com)
- Dave Smith explaining the Yemen War to Joe Rogan
