    Many in the West believe the destiny of the human race is to embrace Western liberal democratic values. This may or may not be true, but it partially explains why Washington and its allies are so willing to overthrow governments around the world – even if they are democratically elected. And the favorite tool is the NGO. CrossTalking with Ken O'Keefe, Joe Lauria, and Richard Weitz.

    CrossTalk: The Yemen Template



    https://youtu.be/9a3XvgbvomQ

    Published on Apr 1, 2015
    Amazingly the Obama administration still calls Yemen a "template" of success when it comes to its counterterrorism efforts. Closer to the truth is probably still another poorly thought out foreign policy adventure. And double standards abound – what is deemed legitimate for Yemen is denied in the case of Ukraine.
    CrossTalking with Marcus Papadopoulos, Mark Sleboda, and Eric Draitser.

    The Middle East in flames: With the Saudi-led assault on Yemen this region just got a whole lot more complicated and dangerous. And Washington is in the thick of it. What are the region’s overall trajectories? And who’s in the ascendant – the forces of reaction or resistance? CrossTalking with Joshua Landis, Bill Law, and Joseph Kechichian.

    CrossTalk: The Iranian Deal



    https://youtu.be/THTcudf_48c

    Published on Apr 8, 2015
    n historic agreement that could trigger a geopolitical realignment in the Middle East. There is no final agreement yet between the P5+1 countries and Iran regarding its nuclear program – but what we do know gives reason to be cautiously optimistic. Can the parties of war still prevail over hopes for peace? CrossTalking with Mohammad Marandi, Fred Fleitz, and Massoumeh Torfeh.

    CrossTalk: War of Failure



    https://youtu.be/v1KfD8WU1SE

    Published on Apr 13, 2015
    From Afghanistan to Yemen we are told we must fight terrorism over there to keep us safe here at home. The historical record tells us a very different story. Washington’s so-called war on terror has only created and motivated more violent extremists and destroyed states. As a result of failed wars, terrorism flourishes around the world.

    CrossTalking with Phyllis Bennis, Bruce Fein, and James Jeffrey.

    CrossTalk: Obama Doctrine



    https://youtu.be/KNWL2fVekiE

    Published on Apr 17, 2015
    How should we describe Obama administration’s foreign policy – idealistic, pragmatic, neither, or merely erratic? On the one hand, Obama is reaching out to Cuba and Burma, but on the other he’s backing coups in Egypt and Ukraine. Is there such a thing as the Obama doctrine? CrossTalking with Ramzy Baroud, Stephen Schlesinger, and Brian Becker.

    CrossTalk: New Militarism



    https://youtu.be/k5wGhk4UWko

    Published on Apr 20, 2015
    Military spending across the globe is on the rise. Old threats are retired and new ones invented or re-invented. Who benefits from this new militarism - the taxpayers or select elites and defense contractors? And do expanded militaries make us any safer?

    CrossTalking with Michael Maloof, Tighe Barry, and Robert Neer.

    Published on Apr 24, 2015
    Ukraine’s is a complex and a multilevel tragedy – as the economy continues to collapse, the Kiev leadership is hell-bent on destroying civil liberties and eliminating dissent. All awhile Washington and its European allies remain largely silent. And the lack of credible Western media coverage is part of the problem. CrossTalking with James Jatras, Mark Sleboda and Domitilla Sagramoso.

    Published on May 8, 2015
    The War in Europe came to an end 70 years ago. The Soviet Union and its Allies stood supreme over the vanquished Nazi enemy, with the continent on its knees. What lessons have been learned since that vast conflict? And what lessons have been unlearned? Was the loss of so many millions in vain? CrossTalking with Geoffrey Roberts, Jeffrey Tayler and Dmitry Babich.
