As always, this week's Batchelor-Cohen update is a must listen. Nowhere else will you find such a comprehensive and balanced discussion of The New Cold War and the "Russophobia" currently growing within the American Congress and media.

Last evening's discussion was tremendous. Recognizing that time is short during this holiday season, please be sure to at least listen to the first, 12-minute segment. From there, maybe carve out some time over the next few the car or on the give this entire program a thorough listen.

As Professor Cohen clearly states early in the show, "The American War party, led by people such as Sen. McCain, Sen. Graham and plenty of Democratic senators, as well...almost the entire American Congress...and the Washington Post and the New York Times, would prefer and are determined to fight Russia instead of international terrorism".

Again, we've been posting these podcasts every week since February of 2014 and they are more valuable than ever. Please be sure to listen this week and every week as we continue to monitor the extremely dangerous developments of The New Cold War.

There's been some

There's been some medium-intensity fighting around Debaltsevo. Ukraine tried a push in this area which was repulsed. It wasn't an all-out offensive--more like "enhanced reconnaissance." Still, couple of hundred casualties on both sides. In-laws said that the hospitals were full in Donetsk (from the DNR casualties). Sun-Mon was kinda loud in Donetsk too from incoming/outgoing firing.

Some other things not discussed in podcast were:

- Ukraine Privat Bank's nationalization this week.

- U.S. force deployments to Poland and the Baltics in January

- Expansion of U.S. sanctions on Russia

- Ukrainian President Poroshenko's hold on power is getting pretty weak. Some challengers are starting to smell blood in the water and preparing to challenge. I think we'll see Poroshenko replaced by the end of 2017.

Big picture, nothing has changed. The Ukraine situation will stay simmering on the back burner until it's useful for it not to.
