    Im starting to think endless warmongering is the only thing that's kept this nation united since the late 60s

  • Christiaan Hart Nibbrig on January 25, 2022

    Anand is terrible. Dude, ask brief , incisive questions and stfu! The guy gives a two minute speech before turning it over to his guests. Mehdi is world's better.

    Trump embolded Putin. Worst president ever!

  • John Picardo09z on January 25, 2022

    Very Lame program. Putin moves thousand of troops and we should remain silent. This is exaclty what happened in WW2. She does not understand what is at stake in Europe.

  • Vote to Count on January 25, 2022

    For the last 4 years the Trumpers and the Republican Congress has supported Russia! The Senate was being ran by Russian Operates, Moscow Mitch McConnel and Leningrad Lindsey Graham! In addition, Rand Paul and Senator Ron Johnson are Russian assets! Moscow Mitch went after Corporations for getting involved in racist voting restriction bills, until he realized they may cut donations to the Republican Party! Trump Speech 4/10/21 at Mar-a-lago said Mitch McConnell is stone cold loser ! Where are the American Patriots to stop them?!

  • Serge Baron on January 25, 2022

    Some of these countries are not really worried about Russian invasion they see NATO is a good way to enrolling in welfare .

  • chris dotson on January 25, 2022

    How many rogues nations, states and institutions are greedily awaiting the Chump-inspired US civil war?
    Chess, not Checkers…

    By taking Chump, Putin met with Xi to confirm NoKo and Putin will take the first shots, exposing US and ensnaring US capabilities in two regions, as China continues to move her pieces, years in advance, to control her seas and guarantee total dominance and easy supremacy in her own backyard.

    China will only take Taiwan after the US has engaged in NoKo and Syria and Iran and Saudi Arabia and …, and after opening the front in Crimea, which Putin is completing the processes of setting up, now. It was easier, faster for Putin because they have ALWAYS remained the enemy (which Chump allowed Putin to gain advantage over! – TRAITOR!).

    China only really moved to solidify power in the region AFTER Chump began his tyranny and China saw the cards on the table in the US.

    Prior to Chump, the Pentagon knew China was on a long term, 100 year plan for the region! Because of STUPIDITY, China is now on a 5 year plan to take back Taiwan, as a direct result of Stupid Orange and his Stupid States – TREASONOUS TRUMP!!!!

    Because of TREASONOUS TRUMP!!!! & AMERICA’s TINKER TAILORS!!! Iran is now off the hook and all prior diplomacy, everywhere in all prior agreements, are now voiding. Chump strikes again!

    How many rogues nations, states and institutions are greedily awaiting the Chump-inspired US civil war?

  • Jd Dunlap on January 25, 2022

    The love of Putin's life was the collection of countries called the Soviet Union, he wants it back! Simple as that!
    Killing thousands in Syria or Crimea, or journalist just doesn't satisfy, like terroristic threatening millions?
    (Like with all bullies, it's about what he can get away with!) Hitler & Stalin

  • Your Soulmate on January 25, 2022


    You sound like someone who’s either on FSB’s patrol or has been watching too much of Kremlin’s propaganda on Russia Today.

    This is exactly what Putin wants – divide and concur the West.
    He’s succeeding in France supporting the ultra right there, in Germany, having former Chancellor Schroeder on Gasprom’s payroll, and in the US having been supporting Trump and influencing people like yourself.

    There were some Americans who were supporting Hitler in 1930s. I wander how will you feel in 5-10 years about what you’re saying today.

  • Mark Yaremko on January 25, 2022

    This is just pathetic. You can argue whether or not, or to what extent Ukraine is in the US national interests. But don't bring a speaker on who either did not do her homework is a troll of some sort. She espoused nothing but naivety about the region, the conflict, and tried to back it up with Kremlin talking points while the host did not challenge her. For example, one there is no civil war in Ukraine, there's a war. And two, there is no "east versus west" split in Ukrainian society. If she was a "specialist" of some sort, she would not float these talking points. Even the Murdoch media outlets are bringing on speakers with more credibility.

  • Mike on January 25, 2022

    “The original sin is NATO expansion” ??

    Eastern European countries are terrified of the Russians. They WANTED to join NATO.

  • Marta Akh on January 25, 2022

    It would be optimally for Ukraine to reconcile with Russia,to be brothers again. They can reach more together. What can western countries USA and other NATO offer to Ukraine? War,robbery of national property and development of organized criminality narco mafia etc,nothing good

  • electro1622 on January 25, 2022

    All they have to do is not put NATO troops and weapons on the Russian border, which they originally agreed to do (the US) … Russia is forced to respond to this.

  • cresco100 on January 25, 2022

    We are the exceptional……Give me a break

  • E Land on January 25, 2022

    Time to become better at soft power; wars are easily started and hard to stop and very, very expensive morally, financially and socially.

  • Zack Simpson on January 25, 2022

    The Soviets have been at the end peacemakers in East Europe. The former dictators released the Warsaw Pact states into freedom. As thank they got NATO rockets at their borders. USA is more agressive than Putin`s Russia. the strange war in Iraq, Afghanistan- just ask your whistleblowers. Why USA have a Monroe doctrine but if the Russians do the same, you call it a crime?

  • Central Intelligence Agency on January 25, 2022

    The war has already started, Russia took the lead in launching attacks, Russian soldiers shot Ukrainian soldiers with guns, and Ukrainian soldiers have fought back, which will soon develop into a full-scale war,With the approval of the US Congress, the United States will provide Ukraine with nuclear weapons!

  • Emma fuentes Baltazar on January 25, 2022

    Godbless to all Russia

  • quannhacthienban on January 25, 2022

    Ukraine needs American weapons, not American blood.

  • Dribrom Sunrock on January 25, 2022

    Putin knows that Ukraine won't join NATO anytime soon. Also Putin doesn't really worry about NATO. All this warmongering from Putin is just to distract from domestics problems. So it doesn't matter if the world "play soft" with Russia or not. Putin will just push harder and harder against any perceived enemy for ever and ever. He needs a perpetual war just in the novel 1986 by Gorge Orwell.

    So if you don't put hard against hard with Russia it will not be too long before Putin invades America after he have conquered Europe. It will be cheaper to go to war with Russia now to protect Ukraine then wait 10, 15 years when he invades America. Putin needs to keep creating foreign enemies to keep his population distracted from the horrible domestic problems Russia has struggled with lately.

  • Danny Lesch on January 25, 2022

    It's Biden inability to lead ,Putting is a former KGB he's shrewd.The only thing he respects is strength.Biden knot all thir.He should be censored. He's Allredy torch everything he touche.

    Please pray for peace
    The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace Numbers 6:26

  • danny Torrance on January 25, 2022

    Putin is playing a shell game…in todays world it is hard to plan a suprise attack, as everyone has access to instant information. His massing of forces is a distraction, drawing NATO forces away from his intended target. I believe he will attack the continental US while their forces are engaged around Ukraine. He will attempt to install Trump as Dictator, so he has total control of the West. Trump seems oddly unphased by his legal woes, while he's amping up his rhetorical rallies. Russia is attempting to cut undersea internet communications, while crowding Ireland's coastal waters… 100 seconds to midnight, and the clock is ticking.

  • J Hughes on January 26, 2022

    We have no leadership.

  • Thurman Williams on January 26, 2022


    This is kind of a thing which shreds credibility. Van Den Huevel has been a Russian apologist for decades, and turned a blind eye while Russia funded White Supremacist and Right Wing Separatist causes across the globe from Brexit to Calexit. You can see dinners with FAR Right wing conspiracy theorists, racist, and NAZI sympathizers having dinners sponsored by Putin's Russia in Moscow.

    Fox News parrots Russian State Propaganda.

    Fixing Race Relations in this country, and many others from Greece and Italy to the US, to the UK, probably includes limiting Russian influence and power in Europe.

  • S M on January 26, 2022

    Where is Mehdi lol

  • Noah Brooks on January 26, 2022

    Civil war? They better not ever have her back as a guest.

  • PJ Kicks on January 26, 2022

    And they'll sacrifice eveu last troop to get some more money.

  • Peter de jong on January 26, 2022

    Secrets of War money one Entity control, is the 22-2-22 a significant date of proof ?

    Was History and all Wars have they all been manipulated including near future wars ?

    are they now and have they always been Controlling all fighting sides of the Wars from a long way away? and what about this War about to commence, is there one entity behind the scene secretly controlling all of the Countries fighting that we the people are told are our enemy?

    this all starts to fit into place, has one Country been played given war toys for a place to start the fight? Provoked by troops surrounding their borders, If the War starts how many of these proud people of that small Country will be left?

    The BOSSES of the Governments need to be questioned and the War stopped by the people before it starts, do not fight you will only lose your lives while making them trillions?

    with all the War toys prearranged with a predetermined outcome? being put into place setting the stage to commence _ _3?
    is the 22-2-22 the significant date. Before 22-2-2222?

    good luck stay safe

  • Michael Gabriel on January 26, 2022

    If the 🇺🇸 goes to War with 🇷🇺 over Ukraine…
    🇺🇸 commander in chief… Joe Biden
    🇷🇺 Commander in chief… Vadimir Putin.

    Go figure the odds.😂

  • Asian guy on January 26, 2022

    How is providing Ukraine weapons a provocation? It’s not like Ukraine poses a threat to Russia. Russia doesn’t like it because it thwarts their aggression. And it is in our interests. Russia won’t stop with Ukraine. NATO expansion? Russia can’t dictate who other countries associates with.

  • Asian guy on January 26, 2022

    This is not a civil war it is an outside provocation. Russia is aligned with China in overtaking the U.S.

  • Asian guy on January 26, 2022

    Moratorium on NATO “expansion” and you yield to a Russian takeover. This is Britain’s Chamberlin all over again.

  • Asian guy on January 26, 2022

    Honesty. Ukraine isn’t able to join NATO, so how is it NATO expansionism.

  • K Ro on January 26, 2022

    This is what happens when you have a weak and incompetent US President.
