Scott was joined by Ted Galen Carpenter on Antiwar Radio this week. They first discuss the status of Ukraine’s counteroffensive. There has been a lot of coverage of some Ukrainian gains in the southeast. Less covered have been the Russian gains in the northeast. They discuss these developments and reflect on the reaction in Washington. At the end, they touch on the absurd GOP proposal to launch a conventional war against the Mexican drug cartels.
