We started the week out with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson and he's back with us today to finish out the week and to look at a number of issues, including the consequences of America's behavior in the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan. Confidence in the U.S. among NATO nations, as well as Ukraine, is plummeting – should a neighbor country act aggressively, it's no longer certain that the U.S. would intervene to help out. He also covers Russia's and China's potential future geopolitical plans, the pandemic moving forward, and even a little on the California governor recall election.
Election fraud and interference actually do happen, especially in the country of Belarus. Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), is back with us from Kiev, Ukraine to examine the blatantly fraudulent election in Belarus and how it affects the area. Will Putin risk another revolution on his border? More importantly, will he invade the country like he did Crimea?
Mr. Johnson details the geopolitics of Eastern Europe, including how NATO would respond should Russia invade another country, what the U.S.'s involvement would be, and how China could benefit from the current chaos in Europe.
