The Nation’s Editorial Director & Publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel discusses issues about the U.S. and NATO’s Ukraine stance & much more.
Katrina vanden Heuvel lays it out
Recently I contacted Norman Solomon to discuss his recent article on the Ukraine crisis. He said he would and did give me an interview on his piece. But he told me that I also needed to talk to Katrina vanden Heuvel, who could provide some in-depth perspectives complementary to his. I contacted her and set up this one. Katrina did not disappoint.
Katrina pointed out several issues that the mainstream media seldom covers. One need not wonder why.
- How does the Bush/Baker broken promise on NATO expansion play into the current debacle?
- How does the need of the defense industrial complex play into the mobilization of troops and ammunition given America’s less than surreptitious exit from Afghanistan? That was likely a hell of a blow to the defense industrial complex.
- What parallels can one draw if we had similar geopolitical influences on our borders.
A diplomatic solution to Ukraine must be the only option. One hopes that typical neoliberal tropes don’t get in the way of intelligent diplomacy.
Katrina’s recent tweet said it all, “Time to confront Russia—not with military might, but with a bold diplomatic deal that will avert accidental or not accidental nuclear conflict.”
Katrina vanden Heuvel also discussed many domestic issues. Our platform ensures we treat the problems not with soundbites but with the requisite depth. Doing so allows Americans to make the right choices. Listen to the entire interview. Most importantly, please be sure to share them to ensure we inform as many Americans as possible.
