Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Program on the events that have undermined relations between Russia and the United States. What might be the out come? What is at stake? Who is the aggressor?

Professor Mearsheimer will address the causes of the crisis and how it has poisoned relations between the United States and Russia to the detriment of both countries and disaster for the Ukraine.

Mr. Rozoff will speak on the transformation of NATO from a defensive alliance into a component of U.S. Foreign Policy,
intent on neutralizing Russia's strategic nuclear deterrent.

Q&A provides additional historical perspective and analysis on why the Russians see what the U.S. is leading as an existential threat. Mentioned is that by the time of the Allied invasion during World War II, the Soviets had destroyed over 90% of German military, suffering 8 million soldiers lost, 3.5 million POWs murdered by the Germans and 16 million civilian deaths. Russia was destroyed, its population devastated. Yet without missing a beat the U.S. declared them "the enemy" and U.S. military leaders planned and advocated attacking them with nuclear weapons as soon as sufficient numbers were available. Russian development of their own bomb became a deterrent to that end. The Russians are afraid of a U.S. first strike. They has said so. They have witnessed the ruthlessness of the planets foremost "Liberal Democracy" that has mutated into Fascism's leading brand. They remember history even if we do not, Professor Mearsheimer comments to that fact during the Q&A.
