As Syria becomes a new front in the new Cold War between Russia and US/NATO, these weekly discussions between Batchelor and Cohen take on even greater importance.
If you've been following along since early 2104, then you know how truly dangerous this situation has become. The opening of a possible new "theater" in Syria only serves to complicate the situation and deepen the crisis.
With no end in sight, it looks like Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen are going to need to keep these weekly discussions going indefinitely. And it's a good thing, too, as this crisis only seems to worsen with each passing day.
