Weichert addresses corruption among American elites and their Chinese counterparts. He describes the situation in Ukraine with Russia. And Weichert talks about the ins-and-outs of the truth about the JFK assassination with Seth Leibsohn on his Phoenix radio show.

US cannot afford a world war with Russia
Brandon J. Weichert’s newest op-ed at The Asia Times shows how bad the US policy toward Russia and Eastern Ukraine really is.
NATO Expanded Again
As the world has reeled from the coronavirus outbreak, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has welcomed yet another new … More
Calibrated Threats: Europe
In this piece, I argue that those European states most directly threatened by Russia must enhance their military capabilities.
Trading Ukraine for Venezuela Would Be a Good Deal
President Trump is a transactional leader. So, too, is Vladimir Putin. Let’s do the mother-of-all geopolitical deals and get on with more pressing matters of state already. Neither Ukraine nor Venezuela are worth risking a wider war with Russia. And, despite what “experts” in the United States claim, Russia is a declining power with delusions of grandeur. American policy toward Russia has left Putin with little hope. Thus, as he is increasingly boxed in by the West and a rising China to his east, the likelihood of Putin lashing out militarily against the West is higher now than it has ever been.
No Going to War With Russia Over Ukraine
“Washington cannot lose its head on this matter. This isn’t Hitler marching into Poland in 1939. This is more akin to the Agadir Crisis in 1911. The Agadir Crisis was an outgrowth of German and French competition for greater influence in Morocco. The crisis was ultimately settled by slow negotiations which ratcheted down tensions.

“It’s time to face the fact that the United States has become the battleground for a ridiculous proxy war between two cousins, Ukraine and Russia. It’s no different than how the United States was the victim of an internal blood feud within Islam on September 11, 2001.”
The Trump Doctrine Takes Shape In Eastern Ukraine

Trump Will Need to Combat Russia’s Coming Test of His Leadership With Time & Resolve
The U.S. does not have the force posture capable of resisting a Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine. Putin knows this. As such, he will test President Trump early in his administration. Trump will likely make a deal with Putin in the near-term for concessions here. But, I suspect, once President Trump completes his military expansion and force modernization, he will begin fully resisting Russian aggression. Time and resolve, therefore, is the best answer to Russian revanchism.
