Another excellent discussion last evening from Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen as the situations in Ukraine and Syria remain precarious.
Though there is some reason for hope/optimism following Secretariat Kerry's visit with both Putin and Lavrov on Monday (https://www.rt.com/news/326014-putin-kerry-lavrov-talks/), the situation in both Ukraine and Syria remains volatile and dangerous.
Ukraine in particular, where this New Cold War began, remains particularly concerning as the U.S. War Party puppet, Mikhail Saakashvili, grows in prominence (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/dec/15/ukrainian-minister-throws-...). Be sure to listen all the way through this podcast as the third segment is especially important.
Again, this New Cold War will be the dominant geo-political issue of 2016 so it is imperative that you remain on top of the situation. These updates from Batchelor and Cohen are the only fair and objective discussions that we've been able to locate in all of western media. Please be sure to listen every week.
