More than a month into the Ukraine war, is it too soon to call the Russian invasion a failure? What impact will it have on America's international standing, and why has it increased Iran's motivation to acquire nuclear weapons? Retired Israeli general Amos Yadlin, former head of Israel's military intelligence, joins the podcast to discuss these questions amid reports of Russian war crimes on the outskirts of Kyiv.

Yadlin tells host Amir Tibon that Putin's "barbaric" war is a reflection of Russia's failure to "march into Kyiv and be greeted as liberators." Putin, in his view, "lost the war he planned," but can still win another, more brutal one. Listen to the full conversation, which also touches on Israel's ties with China, and the Biden administration's approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
