COI #226: Biden Makes Putin an Offer

by | Feb 3, 2022


On COI #226, Kyle Anzalone breaks down Biden’s proposal to Putin to deescalate the tensions over Ukraine. The proposal was in the U.S. letter delivered to Russia. The US requested the letter remain private but it was leaked to the Spanish press. Biden seems to be willing to offer discussion on the U.S. missiles placed in Eastern Europe. While Biden remains unwilling to negotiate on Ukraine’s NATO membership, a deal resembling the INF treaty could significantly reduce U.S.-Russia tensions.

Kyle discusses a recent accusation by the White House that Senator Josh Hawley is spreading Russian talking points by saying the US should rescind Ukraine’s path to NATO membership. Hawley’s statement is reflective of Biden’s Ukraine policy. Biden is firmly committed against deploying American forces to Ukraine – something that would be required if Ukraine was a NATO member state. 

Kyle talks about the US sanctions campaigns against Myanmar and Cuba. The US announced another round of sanctions against Myanmar to mark the one year anniversary of the military coup. While the US says the sanctions are to punish the coup leaders, the country is now on the brink of an economic collapse. Kyle gives a brief breakdown of the Cuban embargo as the economic war enters its 60th year. 

Kyle explains the importance of Amnesty International naming Israel an apartheid state. Israel’s oppression of Palestinians has been long documented. However, recent reports from Human Rights Watch – and this report from AI – help to crack the pro-Israel U.S. mainstream narrative.
