Senator Rand Paul says the quiet part out loud on Putin, Ukraine, and NATO
It's our one-year anniversary at Crashing the War Party, and what better way to celebrate it than to interview one of our favorite voices on foreign policy restraint— Senator Rand Paul. Dan and Kelley talk to the Kentucky senator about that exchange with Secretary of State Antony Blinken this week, where he challenged the administration dangling NATO in front of Ukraine while agitating Putin before the March invasion. He discusses the perils of escalation, the possibility of Finland and Sweden joining NATO, Putin's miscalculations, as well as the ongoing war in Yemen, and his support for rejoining the Iran nuclear deal. What a perfect way to celebrate our birthday!
We'd also like to extend our absolute gratitude to our producer Remso W. Martinez who has been an integral part of putting together, setting up, and executing Crashing the War Party from the very beginning and weekly. Please check out his own podcast On the Run w/ Remso W. Martinez here!
