This interview is gag-worthy as two condescending leftists wax philosophically about how progressive U.S. foreign policy should dictate global society. However, it does show just how flawed the ideology of the interventionist political leftists has become, and why their expansionist ideology always culminates in conflict.
Example: Right now, China is threatening to put military bases in the Solomon Islands. Australia and the collective west are aghast and ready to draw “red lines.” At the same time the U.S/NATO put military forces ever closer to Russia and are shocked that Putin would eventually respond to the red lines he previously drew. The geopolitical hypocrisy is ridiculous.
That hypocritical example above highlights the ironic point made in an interview between Margaret Hoover and former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch as they discuss President Trump.
If Trump had won reelection, there was no reason for Putin to invade Ukraine because Donald Trump was not trying to expand pressure on Russia or any other foreign government. Yovanovitch admits directly that Trump foreign policy did not create conflict; yet, Yovanovitch pretends not to see the cause and effect in her leftist intervention advocacy.
