We've been posting these weekly discussions for nearly two years now and I am so grateful to have discovered this tremendous source of objective, fair analysis of The New Cold War. Last evening, John and Steve again provided a thorough update that requires your full attention.
With so much action on multiple fronts, I'm sure that John and Steve could talk for hours if given the opportunity. Instead, they are forced to cram the full discussion into just these 39 minutes. I urge you in the strongest possible terms to give this, and all subsequent weeks, a thorough listen.
This week they began with Ukraine, which is still the epicenter of The New Cold War, and a report out of Wikileaks Ukraine. Apparently, audio has been "captured" that quotes Odessa governor Mikhail Saakashvili as saying: "Let the war begin, This would fully suit us." When you understand who Saakashvili is, and how he came to be governor of Odessa, you'll understand how troubling this statement is.
From there a full Ukraine update including the continued electrical blackout in Crimea and reports of incoming fire and Kiev heavy weapon buildup near Donetsk and Luhansk.
The second half is an absolute must listen where the discussion centers around the idea that "we need a new conception of how we (the U.S.) want to live with other nations". This point is exactly why we were initially drawn to these discussions in early 2014. The U.S. no longer "holds the cards" with the unbridled ability to act as the global hegemon. However, we continue to resist that fact across the board....militarily and economically. This blindness is what drives The New Cold War and it makes this current situation the most dangerous, in terms of geo-politics, since The Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.
