Talking on an episode of British commentator Russell Model’s ‘Keep Free’ podcast launched on Friday, Stone blamed the battle in Ukraine on the “neoconservative motion who began the battle in Iraq,” and who nonetheless occupy distinguished positions in Biden’s authorities.
“Biden is an outdated Chilly Warrior, and he actually hates the outdated Soviet Union which he confounds once more with the Russian Federation, which isn’t communist,” Stone continued. “Plainly he’s dragging us stupidly right into a confrontation with an influence that’s not going to provide. That is [Russia’s] borders. That is their world. That is NATO going into Ukraine. This can be a entire different story.”
