    An amazing podcast! Senator Cotton traces the Left’s anti-American foreign policy from Woodrow Wilson through the Vietnam War to the present situation with Ukraine and China. He explains how very different America’s strategic posture vis-a-vis China would be if Kennedy had made the right decisions in Vietnam. Plus insightful commentary on Bob Gates, Obama’s policy toward Iran, and Biden’s Ukraine policy.
