Ukraine (mid May 2022 update) – Ep 118

13:00:29-07:00" />76.1" />

We give our most recent Ukraine update, including Finland / Sweden joining NATO, the entire lack of tracking or accountability for the huge deluge of weapons entering Ukraine, Poland providing T-72 tanks to Ukraine (replaced by M1 Abrams tanks from the U.S.), and acknowledging that not every country in the world has jumped on the Ukraine good, Russia bad bandwagon.

  • Putin’s recent comments can be read as deterrence
  • It’s possible he could use them in the extremis, viewing what’s happened in Ukraine since 2014 as an existential threat.
  • A quote from the first letter to the President, a message to George W. Bush as the war in Iraq began, and a message they repeat in their most recent letter to President Biden “You would be well served if you widened the discussion beyond the circle of those advisers clearly bent on a war for which we see no compelling reason and from which we believe the unintended consequences are likely to be catastrophic.”

Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast
Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast
Chris Henrikson / Danny Sjursen / Keagan Miller / Jovanni Reyes

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.

Fortress On A Hill is hosted, written, and produced by Chris ‘Henri’ Henrikson, Danny Sjursen, Keagan Miller, and Jovanni Reyes.

Intro / outro music “Fortress on a hill” written and performed by Clifton Hicks.  Click here for Clifton’s Patreon page:
