The discussion last evening was one of the most pointed and significant yet. Please make the time to listen.
If you take the time to listen to this, you will find it very hard to be optimistic regarding a peaceful outcome to "The Ukrainian Crisis". As Professor Cohen has consistently pointed out since the conversations began back in February, Russia views the NATO/West involvement in Ukraine as an existential threat. Therefore, all of the recent events and public statements, particularly those from Woody and the US, only serve to enflame the crisis and push the world closer to war.
Remember, Professor Cohen is a died-in-the wool liberal progressive. For him to imply that President Woody is "incompetent and uninformed" and that his actions are "embarassing and worrisome" only confirms all that we've long maintained here at TFMR.
Please listen carefully and prepare accordingly.
