The (So Called) Russian Peace Threat, a Review by Deena Stryker

DEENA STRYKER—Ridenour’s review of the major events of World War II and the intention of the Truman administration to turn against the Soviet Union when it was over video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epW5ktfYt9Q is an important primer on that period for baby boomers and their successors, most of whom have only the vaguest knowledge of the period that preceded the Cold War against Russia. In a speech to Congress on March 12, 1947, Truman announced that the United States would provide political, military and economic assistance to all democratic nations under threat from external or internal authoritarian forces. The Truman Doctrine effectively reoriented U.S. foreign policy, away from withdrawal from conflicts not directly involving the United States, to one of possible intervention in far away conflicts.

Besides an Eiffel Tower and some ancient ruins to visit here or there, the Russians pretty much have everything Europeans do. Let’s move on to point two.

Trump Is Right – NATO Is Obsolete, and if Europe Wants to Fight Imaginary Enemies, It Should Pay Its Own Way

PEPE ESCOBAR—As a preamble to Helsinki, Trump’s spectacular NATO blitzkrieg was a show for the ages; assorted “leaders” in Brussels simply didn’t know what hit them. Trump didn’t even bother to arrive on time for morning sessions dealing with the possible accession of Ukraine and Georgia. Diplomats confirmed to Asia Times that after Trump’s stinging “pay up or else” tirade, Ukraine and Georgia were asked to leave the room because what would be discussed was strictly an internal NATO issue.
