    CrossTalk: Syrian Nightmare



    https://youtu.be/Fee3evBWK1w

    Published on May 15, 2015
    Is it too late for an agreed political settlement to end the Syrian civil war? Recent advances of al-Qaeda affiliated groups and the Islamic State suggest any regime following Assad will be radicalized, extremely brutal and possibly aggressive. Would this be a case of the cure being worse than the disease?
    CrossTalking with Richard Murphy, Jason Hirthler, and Sukant Chandan.

    CrossTalk: Dissolve NATO?



    https://youtu.be/_LpFYULfKU0

    Published on May 18, 2015
    NATO – the North Atlantic Treaty Organization – has an identity problem of sorts. To have meaning, cohesion, purpose and reasons to be funded, this alliance needs enemies. On the back of the western-backed regime change in Ukraine, today Russia gives the alliance a reason to exist. Is this wise? CrossTalking with Andranik Migranyan, Brian Becker, and Michael O'Hanlon.

    Published on May 22, 2015
    The recent high-level meetings between Russian and American officials in Sochi created a media and diplomatic buzz. It appears Washington actually does want to talk to Moscow – and may even be willing to work together on a number of international issues again. Does that include Ukraine as well?

    CrossTalking with Mark Sleboda and Xavier Moreau.

    Most American don’t like the term, and some are probably actually not aware of it, but the US stands at the top of a vast global empire. The current economic system and Washington-led military alliances are the centerpieces of world order. Is this good for the world and the average American?

    The Islamic State continues to thrive and establish itself as a power base in the Middle East. Though it must be pointed out that its strength today is only the result of the west's habit of playing with jihadi groups who later turn on their masters. Is this intentional chaos or policy recklessness? CrossTalking with Ramzy Baroud, Danny Makki, and Mohammed Ghanem.

    Escalating rhetoric and the doubling down on failed policies: this is one way of viewing the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s opinion of the world, particularly Russia. Western sanctions and promises of more sanctions have achieved nothing. Is this why NATO deems Russia a military threat?

    Winning the battlefield called public opinion has never been so important nor so divisive. The western media’s assault on Russia approaches sensory overload, but is it effective?

    Cul-de-sacs and fault lines: There is no shortage of either in today’s Ukraine. The government in Kiev appears to be losing its ability to rule as international creditors grimly await the conditions of Ukraine's financial default. As rumored, is Washington now looking for a way out?

    Again Athens finds itself at loggerheads with its creditors, particularly the IMF. The Greeks appear to be willing to do only enough to stay in the Eurozone, while the rest of Europe is willing to offer it just enough support to stay afloat – all awhile making the Greek economy almost impossible to grow. Is the Euro a failure?

    Quagmire and fiasco are only two words to describe the condition of the European Union and the eurozone after the democratic choice of the Greek people.

    Investigations into the downing of flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine are still inconclusive or incomplete a year on from the tragedy. However, this has not stopped the West and their media from apportioning blames, without facts and figures to back up their claims. The search for justice for the families of those killed on MH17 continues.

    Jeremy Corbyn calls himself a democratic socialist and he is vying to lead Britain’s Labor Party. Some polls and a growing grass roots campaign suggest he is very much in the running. Seen as a moral savior by legions of supporters, he is deemed as a dangerous political joke by his opponents. Suddenly, British politics is interesting again.

    Is NATO sleepwalking into a conflict with Russia? Well, it certainly looks like it.

This still may happen, but the results could be catastrophic. CrossTalking with Joe Lauria, Stephen Zunes, and Richard Weitz.

    The Korean peninsula is no stranger to tensions and periodic flare-ups. However, this time around the stakes were higher than ever. In the North, a young leader copes with bad economic times and seeks greater legitimacy. Meanwhile, in the South, Seoul eyes Beijing and Washington as powerful outside brokers. What does this most recent confrontation tell us about both Koreas?

    Are we experiencing the Great Recession of 2015 or merely a painful paradigm shift in how the global economy is run? Many in the West quickly blame China for mismanagement of its economy and currency. This may or may not be true, but this is only a small fraction of a much bigger story. Has anything been learned since the financial crisis of 2008?

    CrossTalking with Mitch Feierstein, Stephen Keen, and Mark Weisbrot.

    CrossTalk: Western-made Refugee Crisis



    https://youtu.be/wJd8H5XYEhg

    Published on Aug 31, 2015
    The real and imagined migrant crisis engulfing Europe: What accounts for the EU’s near indifference to the plight of refugees clamoring to enter European countries? Could it be that these people are from countries NATO members have attacked, and turned into failed states or havens for terrorists? These refugees never wanted to leave home in the first place.

    CrossTalking with Sukant Chandan, Anders Lustgarten, and Tim Finch.

    CrossTalk: Annihilating Yemen



    https://youtu.be/X08f9Ei9pbg

    Published on Sep 4, 2015
    Getting scant media coverage in the West, Yemen as a state and society is being destroyed. The Arab world’s poorest country is being systemically annihilated by one of its richest – Saudi Arabia. What does Riyadh hope to achieve in this conflict, and why is Washington fully backing this war of choice?

    CrossTalking with Mohammad Marandi, Joseph Kechichian, and Catherine Shakdam.

    CrossTalk: China finally arrives on world stage?
    (RT)

    Published on Sep 7, 2015
    Has China finally arrived - in every sense of the word – on the world stage? It was at the epicenter of the most recent global financial turbulence. Thus when something happens to the Chinese economy, it is immediately felt around the world. And China is on track to be the lender of last resort, replacing the US and the IMF. Can the West seriously contain China?

    CrossTalking with Harry Kazianis, Eric Kraus, and Richard Cooper.

    CrossTalk: Unsourced Syria



    https://youtu.be/InuH-NaOJ0c

    Published on Sep 9, 2015
    An unsourced story originating on an Israeli website claimed Russia was about to deploy significant military assistance to Syria to fight Islamic State. This set the media aflame and had Washington issuing warnings. The story was not only unsourced, but also untrue. But it did reveal how the West frames its illegal war against Syria.

    CrossTalking with Eric Draitser, Danny Makki and Fawaz Gerges.

    CrossTalk: Kiev Infighting

    Published on Sep 11, 2015
    With military stalemate in the east of the country and the economy in serious depression, the regime in Kiev has had to face some very hard realities. And its very survival is in doubt. Losing on the battlefield and the economic front, the Kiev regime is turning in on itself.

    CrossTalking with Mark Sleboda, Michael Hudson and Rodney Shakespeare.

    Published on Sep 14, 2015
    The law of unintended consequences: Europe has finally started to address a humanitarian crisis partially of its own making: the growing wave of refugees from the war-torn Middle East. As EU members grapple with binding quotas and the cost of refugee resettlement, is anyone in Brussels – or NATO, for that matter – considering ending wars of choice?

    CrossTalking with Ramzy Baroud, Sabah al-Mukhtar and John Laughland.

    CrossTalk: Obama's Syria



    https://youtu.be/j9VRG6M30ZI

    Published on Sep 16, 2015
    Ending Syria’s horrific civil war is possible, but the political will to do so remains elusive. Over the years the facts on the ground have changed in Syria – the rise of the Islamic State being the most deadly new player. But Washington and its regional allies remain focused on illegal regime change in Damascus. The west is fighting the wrong war and will surely lose the peace.

    CrossTalk: Japan up in arms



    https://youtu.be/KT0k2WyG_l0

    Published on Sep 21, 2015
    Some political forces in the Japanese elite are hell bent on changing the country’s so-called peace constitution. For generations, Tokyo has avoided foreign wars due to pacifist laws reining in military and defense expenditures. This could change and Japan may again become a global military power. Is this good for Japan, the Pacific, and the world?

    Published on Sep 23, 2015
    After years of watching the Syrian civil war escalate – with all its carnage and humanitarian crisis – Washington finally appears to admit what has been so obvious to so many – Obama’s Syrian policy has been a blunder of catastrophic proportions. Does the administration and its allies have the guts for a total re-think?
