Russia, Ukraine, and the West | Frederick Kagan | The JBP Podcast | #230

Follow the money.

The Russian background discussion is very interesting. The AEI analyst, historian seems to have forgotten the 2014 US state department sponsored overthrow of the pro Russian Ukrainian government. Recall the famous Victoria Nuland “F*** the EU” phone call where she discusses who will lead the new government. No mention of Neo-nazi riddled replacement government. There is little in the anti-Putin tirade that doesn’t apply to US foreign policy since WWII. Notably the Middle East and South East Asia.

The US doesn’t lie!!!

Any association with the AEI should peak your warparty/warmonger situational awareness.

AEI/Raytheon/McDonnell Douglas want to get those US made weapons to Ukraine ASAP! But the question is why is it the US’ responsibility? Surprise, the defense budget is way too low.

Did I mention follow the money?

This episode was recorded on February 27, 2022. Dr. Frederick W. Kagan is a former professor of history with a PhD in Russian and Soviet military history from Yale. He is also a celebrated author and the director of the American Enterprise Institute’s Critical Threats Project. In this episode, I discuss the nature of the conflict that has taken the world by storm over the last 5 days—Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine and the ongoing resistance of its citizens. Dr. Kagan is a wealth of information on military history, geopolitics, Putin’s relationship with the USSR (which his father helped defend) and Ukrainian sovereignty, and other aspects of what’s most certainly a moment in human history that won’t be forgotten soon.
