1/21/22 Annelle Sheline on Why Yemen Matters

Scott is joined by Annelle Sheline of the Quincy Institute to discuss Yemen. Sheline wrote an article recently about the shifting balance of the war. One year after Biden announced an end to U.S. support for offensive Saudi operations, the bombing campaign remains as brutal as ever. Sheline argues that, while all sides have committed atrocities, the scale of the Saudi coalition’s brutality has outshone all others. Further, the war can only happen with continued U.S. support, which puts it on Americans themselves to stop this tragedy.

1/21/22 Richard Hanania on American Power, Public Choice Theory and the Rise of China

Scott interviews Richard Hanania of Defense Priorities. They discuss the reality of how the American military’s presence impacts global events. Hanania argues that, if it were true that the U.S. was out there defending its allies, you’d expect those countries to want U.S. troops present more than the U.S. wants to have troops stationed there. But in reality, we often find the opposite. Hanania also gives the reasons he thinks China is all but certain to become the dominant power in East Asia but that right-wing fears over a global Chinese takeover are overblown.

1/19/22 Zaher Wahab: Afghanistan is Starving and Nobody Cares

Scott interviews Zaher Wahab of the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education about the economic catastrophe taking place in Afghanistan. Although the U.S. Government claimed it was working to develop Afghanistan, Wahab explains that what it really did was prop the country’s economy up until it left. Now, in the midst of the collapse, the people of Afghanistan are starving. And the American hawks and pundits, who only four months ago were screaming about the wellbeing of Afghan civilians, now don’t seem to have a care in the world for them. Wahab fills us in on this situation, its causes and what needs to change.

COI #210: Scott Horton on Biden’s First Year as President

COI #210: Scott Horton on Biden’s First Year as President

On COI #210, Scott Horton joins Kyle Anzalone to discuss Biden’s first year as president. 

Scott breaks down Biden’s Afghanistan policy. Biden critically took the most important step of removing US troops from the long battered country. However, Biden played the role of a sore loser and waged an economic war on the Afghans. Now, Afghans are beginning to starve to death as Biden keeps billions of dollars in Kabul government funds frozen. 

Scott also discusses Biden’s Russia policy. Biden has walked to the brink with Moscow with his public rhetoric, though in private conversations with Putin he is relenting. The administration, however, fails to understand Russia’s desires for Ukraine, creating a potential miscalculation.

12/30/21 Darren Beattie on the Mysterious Men Who Breached the Capitol

Scott interviews Darren J. Beattie of Revolver News about the in-depth articles he’s written about the riot at the Capitol last January. Beattie’s reporting uses video and photo evidence to highlight a number of individuals who were instrumental in breaching the Capitol grounds and in directing rally-goers towards the building. But while hundreds of attendees have been charged for their actions that day, this group of instigators has remained virtually untouched by federal investigators. Scott and Beattie discuss possible explanations and look at the broader context beyond the riot.
