Why is Russia threatening to invade Ukraine—and does it portend another cold war between the U.S. and Russia?
For today’s show, Friday host Esty Dinur discusses the latest developments in NATO–Russia relations and the historical context with David Gibbs, professor of history at the University of Arizona Department of History, and Will Griffin from the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.
They talk about the history and future of NATO, Biden’s failed promise of a new era of American diplomacy, Russia’s nuclear capability, and much more.
David Gibbs is a professor of history at the University of Arizona, where he researches and teaches history and political science, with a focus on international relations and U.S. politics.
Will Griffin is part of the Korean diaspora within the U.S. and is a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. His military experience led him to become an anti-imperialist organizer and multimedia content producer. Today, he produces educational videos for the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.
