Kelly Vlahos On Ukraine, NATO & Israel

In todays video, I spoke with Kelly Vlahos, of the Quincy Institute For Responsible Statecraft. We spoke about the Ukraine war, where Kelley sees the war going, the imperial mindset of pushing the proxy war and more conflict after a pattern of previous failed foreign policy decisions and the Israeli war.

Please feel free to comment if I have missed any links in the show notes.

"The C.I.A.’s partnership in Ukraine can be traced back to two phone calls on the night of Feb. 24, 2014, eight years to the day before Russia’s full-scale invasion. Millions of Ukrainians had just overrun the country’s pro-Kremlin government and the president, Viktor Yanukovych, and his spy chiefs had fled to Russia. In the tumult, a fragile pro-Western government quickly took power. The government’s new spy chief, Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, arrived at the headquarters of the domestic intelligence agency and found a pile of smoldering documents in the courtyard. Inside, many of the computers had been wiped or were infected with Russian malware. "It was empty. No lights. No leadership. Nobody was there,” Mr. Nalyvaichenko said in an interview. He went to an office and called the C.I.A. station chief and the local head of MI6. It was near midnight but he summoned them to the building, asked for help in rebuilding the agency from the ground up, and proposed a three-way partnership. “That’s how it all started,” Mr. Nalyvaichenko said."
