Rising tensions in eastern Europe between the U.S. and Russia over the Ukraine have dominated the news. We discuss the situation with scholar and retired Army Colonel Andrew Bacevich. We discussed why the U.S. is so concerned, and hawkish, about Russia and Ukraine--Russophobia? We talked about the role of NATO in this current crisis. We talked about the many more pressing issues the U.S. should focus on--like inflation, COVID, the surveillance state, and especially Climate Change!
It's a great conversation with one of America's leading intellectuals and critics of foreign policy.
Andrew Bacevich is an emeritus professor at Boston University and President of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft (@QuincyInst). He's also the author of several books on U.S. foreign policy and one of the foremost critics of America's war and interventionism for decades now. He is also a retired colonel in the U.S. Army, armored cavalry. And he's a frequent columnist in The Nation, as well as many other publications. His most recent book is "After the Apocalypse:America's Role in a World Transformed"
