On COI #336, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman cover the Joe Biden administration’s escalatory policies quickly heating up Washington’s Cold Wars with Russia and China.
Kyle talks about how the hawks in the Biden regime and their allies are gearing up to support the proxy war in Ukraine for years to come, NATO has a 10 year plan to make Kiev a “default” member of the alliance. The Pentagon chief predicts Ukraine will go on the offensive this winter and again vowed to keep the war going for years and years. Biden himself has ruled out the possibility of talks with his Russian counterpart regarding the war. Like his Secretary of State and longtime right hand man, Antony Blinken, he is only considering talks on a relatively meaningless prisoner exchange. Meanwhile, Turkey is attempting to facilitate and broker peace talks with the West and Russia.
Connor discusses Washington’s plans to turn Taiwan into a major arms depot, preparing for a war with China the U.S. is provoking. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen has announced ramp ups in arms purchases and production, while ruling out contact with Beijing unless the island’s “sovereignty” is respected. Taipei is focusing on producing precision missiles, high-performance naval vessels, and smaller, mobile systems focusing on “comprehensive asymmetric warfare capabilities.” Concurrently, the White House put out a provocative National Security Strategy which names China as the “most consequential geopolitical challenge.”
