On COI #89, Kyle and Will discuss Joe Biden’s plans for the military budget. Recent reports suggest he has no intention to press for any significant cuts and will keep spending around the same level as the Trump administration before him, which itself increased the budget by some $100 billion. Though Trump called to slash the Overseas Contingency Operations fund for 2022, Biden is unlikely to do the same, as he refuses to commit to any rollback of America’s wars abroad.
Saudi Arabia’s US-backed bombing campaign on Yemen recently marked its sixth anniversary. Will and Kyle summarize the years-long war, Washington’s indispensable role in keeping it going and the devastating effects on Yemen’s civilian population.
North Korea has carried out two weapons tests over the last week, including ballistic and cruise missiles. The launches come as the country steps up its rhetoric and calls on the Biden administration to drop the same hostile policies implemented under every US president for decades – namely sanctions and provocative military drills with Seoul. Biden has given no indication of taking a different approach, keeping with the US demand that Pyongyang surrender its nuclear arsenal as a precondition for any talks.
