On COI #484, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman break down developments in the Ukraine proxy war as well as Israel's brutal war against the people of the Gaza Strip. Kyle covers the latest US military aid package worth $200 million being sent to Kiev and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's request to visit Israel as a show of support during its war against Palestine. This comes as the White House seeks to put together a potentially massive military aid package that would bundle funds for Israel, Taiwan, and Ukraine as part of a plan to circumvent GOP opposition to further spending on the Ukraine proxy war. Connor discusses neocon Senator Lindsey Graham's calls for genocide in besieged Gaza and US airstrikes in Iran, reports that US intelligence is indicating Tehran was not linked to the Hamas attack on southern Israel, as well as Washington and Doha agreeing to deny Tehran to access its own money that was unfrozen as part of a prisoner swap with the US. Connor then details Israeli massacres in the West Bank including the murders of a father and son at a funeral, Israeli bombings in Syria putting both of the war-torn country's international airports out of service, Turkish airstrikes in US-occupied Syria killing dozens of Kurdish fighters, and the US formally recognizing the Niger coup.

Connor discusses upcoming major US-Israeli war drills eyeing Iran, Tel Aviv's latest bombings in Syria, US backed militias' continuing clashes in eastern Syria, Washington's new strategic security pact with Bahrain, plus Tehran's prisoner swap with Washington and what it means for further diplomatic opportunities with the Islamic Republic.
