    CrossTalk: Syrian Conundrum
    RT



    Published on Dec 23, 2015
    Belatedly it would seem even Washington thinks it is time to end the Syrian Civil War. But does it have the power to do so? After years of miscalculation and misguided policies Washington appears powerless to influence its allies and friends in the region.

    CrossTalk: Saudi's World
    RT



    Published on Jan 6, 2016
    Saudi Arabia’s foreign and domestic policies are becoming much more aggressive, even deadly. What is driving Riyadh’s agendas? The Saudis appear to desire a greater and more independent role in the Middle East. Where does the Kingdom’s most powerful backer – Washington – stand? And what about fighting the Islamic State?

    Published on Jan 8, 2016
    Saudi Arabia is on the move and in a hurry. Dissent at home is absolutely forbidden, and its foreign policy is active on multiple fronts. Do either make the Saudi royals any safer and secure? What about the region? And is it time for the US to finally re-assess its relationship with Riyadh?

    CrossTalk: Arab Spring at five
    RT



    Published on Jan 13, 2016
    Five years ago the phenomenon known as the Arab Spring started to play itself out. In retrospect there were exaggerated hopes for change in the Middle East. Why is this the case? Why did intolerant and extreme Islam trump secular democracy? And has anyone ever been held responsible for so much unintended misery?

    CrossTalk: Tehran's compliance
    RT



    Published on Jan 15, 2016
    Ahead of schedule: Tehran is finishing its compliance with the nuclear deal that it negotiated with the world powers only months ago. This will automatically oblige the West to end layers of sanctions to the benefit of Iran. Should this be seen as a moment of change, ending decades of mutual recriminations? Sadly, this is not how many in Washington see the deal.

    Offensive propaganda or new propaganda offensives? Obama administration announced new online initiatives to bolster its foreign policy narratives and as a means to counter others, for example, this network, RT. Maybe a better course of action would be for the US State Department to ask itself why fewer and fewer people trust and believe it?

    Published on Jan 20, 2016
    With the end of the original sanctions now in play, Washington’s neocons and allies are down, but certainly not on the run. What is their greatest fear? That peace and prosperity will break out? In the meantime, what will be the impact on Iran – the country that is the clear winner in all of this?

    Russia and the United States appear to be determined – at least in public – that the scheduled Syria talks should happen without delay. Is this realistic? Russia’s legal intervention on the side of Damascus has stabilized the Syrian state. The other side or sides are anything but stable…

    Published on Jan 27, 2016
    We are told the Syrian peace talks will proceed as scheduled. At the same time, Vice President Joe Biden says U.S. is ready to impose a military solution in Syria. According to this American official, a political settlement is not essential. With this kind of loose rhetoric a U.S.-Russia conflict in Syria just became more likely…

    Published on Jan 29, 2016
    When it comes to mass migrant and the current refugee crisis hitting the EU, it is getting harder and harder to remain an idealist. The reality is, Europe not only must manage its external borders, but also internal ones. There are of course economic issues to deal with, but what about the importance of culture?

    According to US Secretary of State John Kerry this station is a bullhorn of propaganda.

    Published on Feb 5, 2016
    NATO’s violent overthrow of the Libyan regime in 2011 created a failed state and provided an opening for such groups as ISIL. Five years later the Pentagon is considering another intervention into this very unfortunate country. Time and again we see western military meddling in the Middle East creates the oxygen radicals crave to survive and thrive.

    Europe’s migration/refugee crisis is expected to match or even exceeded last year’s record numbers.

    CrossTalk: Trump's Hostile Takeover
    RT



    Published on Mar 4, 2016
    American presidential election politics is a cross between a talent show and a beauty contest. Being smart and coherent does not necessarily pay dividends. Case in point: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Both are front-runners of their parties. Trump is idiosyncratic and raw; Clinton the ultimate establishment insider. Is this a choice, or merely bad theater?

    Published on Mar 11, 2016
    When running for the presidency of the United States candidates are often asked what kind of foreign policy leader they would be.

    CrossTalk: Trump's Warpath
    RT



    Published on Mar 18, 2016
    The presidential election cycle is a favored blood sport for many Americans and the mainstream media. Elections are part of the country’s secular religion called liberal democracy. But how can America’s elections truly be called democratic if the political establishment aligns itself against the popular will? As things stand now, millions of voters could be disenfranchised.
    CrossTalking with Hank Sheinkopf, Austin Petersen, and Paris Dennard.

    They went, they saw, and for the most part they succeeded, then a partial withdrawal. This nicely sums up Vladimir Putin’s military strategy for Syria. Western media reaction has been decidedly mixed. But it is hard to deny Russia’s adroit mixture of military force and diplomacy. Also, what fate awaits the Kurds? And what explains the EU’s whacky and unproductive approach towards Russia?

    CrossTalk: Europe Terrorized
    RT



    Published on Mar 25, 2016
    This time it was Brussels. Europe has become a battlefield in which terrorists can roam free and undetected. Of course we mourn the victims. But it is way past the time to talk honestly – Europe’s experiment with limited sovereignty is negligent and endangers citizens. And NATO’s conflicts of choice in the Middle East generate war refugees, migrants, but also terrorists of all kinds. It is time for action.

    Why can’t Europe protect itself from terror attacks – does Brussels have misplaced priorities? Also, Russia as universal bogeyman – when the U.S. and the EU stare failure in the face blaming Russia is the first excuse of convenience. And is Trump on to something – should there be a serious re-think about the necessity of NATO? And finally Ukraine again – Crimea’s democratic return to Russia two years on...

    CrossTalk: Scapegoating Russia
    RT



    Published on Mar 29, 2016
    A disturbing trend: Western governments and their pliant mainstream media often blame Russia for many of the world’s woes. In fact the cottage industry known as “Putin did it” relieves many politicians and journalists of professional responsibility. Needless to say, this does not adequately explain Russia.

    CrossTalk: Syrian Narratives
    RT



    Published on Apr 1, 2016
    Conflicting narratives and distorted realities: Western media coverage of the Syrian conflict is seriously flawed and biased. The recent liberation of the ancient city of Palmyra by the Syrian Army with Russia’s help is a case in point. The western narrative has long focused on regime change, the Syrian one has always been about fighting terrorism.

    CrossTalking with Adel Darwish, Alaa Ebrahim, and Joe Lauria.
