Comparing The Colds Wars
Along with John Batchelor, a grim and somber Professor Cohen discussed last evening the latest twists and turns in The New Cold War which, according to John, has finally reached the point where we "blame Russia, at least in part, for everything that is disrupting to our (the American) version of peace and sanctimony".
We've watched over the past four years as Russia is cast as the villain everywhere from Ukraine and Crimea to Syria. Now some are even suggesting that Russia supports neo-nazi groups in America and thus can be blamed for the events in Charlottesville: http://www.newsweek.com/leaders-charlottesvilles-alt-right-protest-all-have-ties-russian-fascist-651384 All the while, the US arms and trains ACTUAL NEO-NAZIS in Ukraine: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-08-22/pentagon-denounces-american-nazis-while-arming-ukrainian-nazis This is madness!!
Again, we thank John and Steve for their ongoing efforts to bring objectivity and fairness to this crisis. Please be sure to listen this week and every week as, sadly, The New Cold War only continues to worsen.
