PLEASE take the time to listen to this extremely important, informative and relevant discussion about current events in Ukraine and Eastern Europe.
As many of you know, back in February I discovered the John Batchelor Program on my local radio. It airs every evening at 9:00 pm EDT and it's not at all like your "normal" talk radio program. That's probably why I like it so much.
Every Tuesday evening, John has Stephen F. Cohen as his guest. Professor Cohen teaches at Princeton University and is a renowned expert on Russia and Eastern Europe. Here's a link to his Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_F._Cohen)
Last night, Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen had a wide-ranging discussion of the current events in Europe. They discussed the deployment of U.S troops to Poland, the escalating violence in Eastern Ukraine, potential political solutions within Ukraine and, most importantly, the utter disgust Professor Cohen has for the way the Woody Administration is handling the crisis. The third segment, which begins at around the 25:00 mark is a MUST LISTEN where Professor Cohen blasts Woody for his lack of interest in the crisis, his deeming of Russia as a "pariah" and the complete incompetence and bias that the American media has shown in covering the events.
Please be sure to also read Professor Cohen's latest article on the crisis. It's posted at The Nation and is linked here: http://www.thenation.com/article/179119/cold-war-again-whos-responsible
And try to catch The John Batchelor show either on air or online. More info here: http://johnbatchelorshow.com
