Dave DeCamp, the news editor at Antiwar.com, is back to run through some of the biggest foreign policy news of the day. He talks with Scott about Biden’s meeting with Chinese President Xi which appears to have been productive. Next they turn to Ukraine. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley recently gave a talk where he voiced his support for negotiations with Russia. Scott and DeCamp talk about some other developments that may signal the potential for talks. Lastly, they turn to Somalia. The Biden Administration has been escalating the U.S. war in Somalia, and very few journalists are reporting on it. Scott and DeCamp discuss what’s happening there and reflect on how ridiculous it is that America is still waging this immoral and unnecessary war.
Discussed on the show:
- “Somalia Asks U.S. to Step Up Drone Strikes Against Qaeda-Linked Fighters” (New York Times)
- “Another Failed 20-Year War: America vs. Somalia” (Antiwar.com)
- “Yemeni Civil War Unleashes a Plague of Locusts” (Antiwar.com)
