As has been the case since last February, this week's discussion between John Batchelor and Professor Cohen is required listening for all. As the specter of increased NATO involvement in Ukraine looms, it is incumbent upon everyone to seek out truthful and knowledgeable sources of information. To that end, these weekly podcasts are invaluable.
Again, please take the time to listen today and each week. When you're finished, please also take some time to review these links. First, this one discovered and posted by one of your fellow Turdites yesterday: https://consortiumnews.com/2015/01/30/group-thinking-the-world-into-a-new-war/
This one, which is discussed heavily throughout the podcast: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ukraine-needs-more-help-from-the-west/2015/01/29/462b1ea4-a71b-11e4-a7c2-03d37af98440_story.html
And Professor Cohen mentions this one near the end: http://buchanan.org/blog/u-s-russia-clash-in-ukraine-15550
Finally, please be sure to listen to the entire show. Toward the end of the program, Professor Cohen once again describes the history of the relationship between Ukraine and Russia and why Russia sees this crisis as an existential threat. It is this point, that I first heard Professor Cohen make over a year ago, that you need to fully consider when contemplating the frightening significance of this worsening crisis.
