For this special episode, Greg speaks with his extraordinary and much-revered high-school history teacher, Mr. D. Stanley Moore, about Stan's Minneapolis background and education at Beloit College, his study of the Russian language in the US Army and eventually Russian Area Studies at the University of Minnesota and Dostoevsky at Yale, his path to and career at Rich East High School in the postwar town of Park Forest, IL, traveling, teaching, learning, and camping in the USSR and Europe (including in the explosive year 1968), teaching in China during and after Tiananmen Square, Russia's war on Ukraine, and his poetry, from which he reads.
The fate of more than 260 soldiers taken to Russian controlled territory on Monday remains unclear. Ukraine suggests a prisoner exchange but Moscow has not confirmed this. Also: a study into the behaviour of mosquitos could change the way malaria is tackled across Africa, and Nasa's rover begins work to find life on Mars.
Host Reed Galen is joined by Clint Watts (National Security Analyst and President & CEO of Miburo Solutions) to discuss Russia/Ukraine - including the strategies Russia is likely to deploy and how the Ukrainians can continue to successfully defend their nationhood, how the Russian people's opinions are souring on the conflict as accurate reporting continues to trickle in, and how Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is the model for a new generation of leadership on the international stage. Plus, what does the United States' next generation of leadership look like and will this new generation of leaders arrive in time to win America's fight for democracy?

The Ukrainian military has been punching well above their weight, something I touched upon in an earlier video. The assessment of the Ukrainians and their success comes partly from Russia's inability to achieve key objectives, such as seizing Kyiv or achieving air superiority over Ukraine. It also comes from tracking the sheer number of tanks and armored vehicles that the Russians have lost--often several of each for every single Ukrainian example that is lost. While this ratio may seem impressive--and it absolutely is--there is a key piece of context that is lost. The Russians have so, so, so many tanks and armored vehicles to continue to toss at Ukraine, whereas Kyiv is reliant on the goodwill of the United States and its European partners to keep them afloat. Wars of atrition might not be new to the Russians, but that doesn't mean it's a comfortable place for Moscow to fight from. Russia has to remain very sensitive to the number of soldiers it is losing in the war. Beyond the staggering number of Russian military commanders the Ukrainians have been able to eliminate, Russian conscripts are also falling at an alarming rate. Moscow has to balance against public sentiment shifting quickly against the Ukraine war, but also minding the reality that it only has a finite number of young men at any time to operate its tanks and armored vehicles. The Ukraine War is going to be a drawn out endurance game, between the Ukrainian military and its vital foreign suppliers, and a Russian military sitting atop vast (albeit aging) stores of materiel.

How do we get to a world without Russian President Vladimir Putin? The reality is that there's no easy path to get there, despite what some US Senators or leaders within the European Union might want. There has been a near constant stream of chatter from elected officials, talking heads, and regular citizens asking why (or, in some cases, pleading) Russia's cabal of oligarchs don't simply... eliminate Putin from the equation. I'll save you from the messier details of how some plans would go, but history is rife with examples of palace coups that remove this or that blundering leader. Russia is not likely to be one of those places. For one, Russia's oligarchs derive their legitimacy and ability to operate (read: plunder) directly from Putin. Oligarchs may have their own relatively small patronage systems, but they don't have the support of the Russian people. Which brings us to a more important point: the Russian military, intelligence services, and Russian people are still largely supportive of Putin. While this may change, this is something we can't gloss over. There is still considerable institutional support around Putin. And while less critical, there is the very important fact that the current stock of oligarchs range from inept, to incredibly corrupt, to cowardly, to reviled. And these are their good points. Whatever Putin is, he's not stupid. And none of the individuals he handpicked to develop (read: plunder) the Russian state's industries and resources was someone who could one day mount a reasonable challenge to his authority.

On this episode, we discuss the developing situation with Peter Zeihan, a geopolitical strategist and author of The Absent Superpower, The Accidental Superpower, Disunited Nations, and the upcoming The End of the World is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization. Here, we examine how the current Russia-Ukraine conflict became a “now or never” option for Putin, the downsides for Russia if it “wins” and what we expect its next steps to be, what NATO is doing to avoid turning this into a nuclear-escalated World War III, why Putin's actions leading up to this point in time don't bode well for Russia in any scenario, and what a country like China with expansionist goals of its own might take away from Russia's hard-earned lessons.

John and Ken have the latest on the Buffalo mass shooter, Payton Gendron and a shooting in L.A. near Grand Central Market that left one person dead. A top Russian oligarch says they have a recording that proves Vladmir Putin has cancer.
Some of the fallout from Russian's invasion of Ukraine is now only 250-miles away. But it's not in Texas. It's above our heads, up in space. The Russian Federation is threatening to abandon the International Space Station. And it's a threat NASA must take seriously. Russia is one of five international partners on the ISS, along with NASA, the European Space Agency, Japan and Canada. And all four partners outside of Russia are having lengthy and serious discussions about a Plan B. But if Russia does bail on the ISS, would it just drop out of the sky? And how could NASA even begin to make up the loss? In this episode of Y'all-itics, the Jasons call up former Astronaut Chris Cassidy, who's trained extensively in Russia, with Russians and on Russian equipment. He says one of the first steps following a collapse in cooperation would be to simply close the hatch between the two modules. It would then quickly get complicated. But Cassidy tells the Jasons he thinks the Russians need us more than we need them. And he explains how it might change business at Mission Control at the Johnson Space Center near Houston, TX.

Here's how deeply Russia's invasion of Ukraine could be changing the security environment in Europe: even Switzerland, famous for its commitment to neutrality that's been in place through many, many wars .... is considering joining NATO. With Finland and Sweden, two long time NATO-holdouts now taking formal steps to join the Alliance, Switzerland's defense ministry is calling for closer ties to NATO; and they're pointing to the security threat posed to all of Europe by the Russians. The invasion of Ukraine could touch off one of the biggest European security realignments since the end of World War II. NATO's nascent expansion is not without its complications, however. Turkey's president continues to voice his hesitations to approve Finland and Sweden's memberships ... and a bigger NATO could mean a more hectic alliance, with more potential for disagreements. But one way or another, NATO looks set to become a lot more fearsome as a military alliance ... not exactly what Vladimir Putin had in mind when he launched his war in Ukraine.

In this episode, Ryan talks with Adam Krzywosądzki, the Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of Poland to the United States. They discuss the Polish perspective on Russia's war against Ukraine and why Poland has been such a steadfast supporter of Ukrainian sovereignty. Adam delves into the ways in which Poland and other NATO and EU countries are pushing back against Russian aggression, but also notes what else can be done. The conversation then turns to Ukraine's humanitarian crisis and how Poland has taken in and provided support to millions of refugees. While there does not seem to be an end in sight now, Adam points out what the international community can do to assist Ukraine, as well as how institutions such as NATO and the EU can play a decisive role.

Kieran talks with Ilze Znotina about the challenges Latvia has faced over the past four years she has been head of the Financial Intelligence Unit, including enforcing sanctions against Russia following its invasion of Ukraine. “Baltic states have suffered… a very similar situation that Ukraine is suffering right now, [but] thankfully not in recent years,” Ilze says, adding that the region is for that united in trying to make the sanctions work. “[Ukraine] fights for themselves and all of us in the Baltic states,” she says. Ilze, who became head of the FIU in the wake of the collapse of the country's second largest bank and under the looming threat the Financial Action Task Force would place the country on its so-called “grey list,” also details how Latvia has moved from those darker days to put in place vigorous anti-financial crime controls.
Ukraine claims to have reached the Russian border in a counter-offensive; NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg makes a bold prediction about the Ukraine war and Washington sends an all-star cast to Abu Dhabi to meet with new UAE president.

The authorities in Bucha accuse Russian soldiers of war crimes. Also: North Korea's leader orders his military to help respond to the Covid outbreak; and we report on how some people in the food-producing giant Brazil are struggling to get enough to eat.
It's clear now that Vladimir Putin didn't expect his army to perform quite so badly when invading Ukraine. As much as that is celebrated in much of the world, it will be a cause for concern – or at least a moment for learning – amongst Beijing's military leaders. Because Russia has always been a heavy influence and source of strategy and equipment for China's People's Liberation Army, ever since the days of the Soviet Union. So could the PLA – which hasn't been in active combat since Vietnam in 1979 – similarly flounder? That's the burning question Cindy Yu and guests discuss in the latest episode of Chinese Whispers. Timothy R. Heath is an expert on the Chinese military at the American think tank, the RAND Corporation, and tells her that: 'A lot of the issues that we're seeing in the Russian military is going to be of high concern to the PLA because there's a very good chance the Chinese military could have some of the similar issues'. They also discuss the possibility of low morale when it comes to fighting an enemy who looks and speaks like you – as some Russian soldiers have found disconcerting in Ukraine. Could an invasion of Taiwan throw up similar problems? Tim argues that it could, and draws parallel with another event – the enlisting of the PLA for suppressing the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989. It was a decision that saw many soldiers (though not enough) refusing to obey orders. 'The experience of the PLA was such a shock for the military and the CCP that a decade later, the Chinese government took the PLA out of the job of suppressing domestic dissent.' In fact, the lack of trust in its soldiers' loyalty is such that today's PLA is one of the only armies to offer a 'suicide pill', so says Professor Li Xiaobing, a Chinese military historian at the University of Central Oklahoma who served in the PLA himself. '20,000 Chinese soldiers were captured during the Korean war. After the war, 70 per cent of the Chinese POWs didn't want to go back to China, and they went to Taiwan. So that's really embarrassing for the Chinese government in the Cold War'. Tune in to this episode to hear more incredible insights about this most elusive yet important modern military force.

Russia has faced a dizzying series of setbacks in its war with Ukraine over the last week: - Sweden and Finland are being fast-tracked into NATO membership, which means Russia will soon share an 810-mile border with NATO. More from NYT - Ukrainian troops pushed the Russians from the outskirts of Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city, and are now approaching the Russian border. Latest from Reuters - Russia suffered “catastrophic” losses during a failed river crossing on May 11, according to The Institute for the Study of War, which notes that “the military incompetence displayed in that crossing have shaken the confidence” of influential Russian military bloggers. - The UK Ministry of Defense said that the Russian offensive in the eastern Donbas region, the focus of Russian firepower since its retreat from Kyiv, has “lost momentum and fallen significantly behind schedule.” The Brits also claimed that Putin has lost one-third of the troops he sent into Ukraine since the start of the February invasion. On Sunday, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO's secretary general, summed up the implications of these developments: “Ukraine can win this war.” And that is exactly the problem according to a growing number of western officials and analysts who fear the fallout from what French President Emmanuel Macron called the “humiliation” of Russia.

In this episode: With graduation season upon us, Kent talks about what makes a good commencement speech. He discusses how crushing student debt can devastate a graduate's future and advises how to avoid it. Although media coverage of the Ukraine war has waned, it still rages on, and with $40 billion of American-provided weapons in Ukraine's hands, Russians may face an uphill battle. Lastly, Kent laments the decline of American journalism, with accuracy often taking a back seat to breaking a story first.

As early as November 2021, the Biden administration began to declassify military intelligence about a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine and share it with the public. As declassified material poured in, the world watched the massive grinding gears of Russia's war machine creep towards Kyiv. Despite what seemed imminent—almost obvious—the White House and the State Department were under intense scrutiny. It wasn't clear whether the strategy of opening the information floodgates would disrupt Moscow's actions or provoke Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine. On this week's episode, Ray Suarez discusses President Biden's Ukraine strategy with US State Department Counselor Derek Chollet.

During the past couple of months, since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there have been several claims that Russia was invading its neighbor to seize its oil and gas resources. And even in the cases where pundits were claiming that Russia was not doing this, they would often phrase it as, “This is not yet another oil war.” But do oil wars happen at all? David Priess sat down with the woman who has literally written the book on this: Emily Meierding, assistant professor at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. She has argued that countries do not launch major conflicts to acquire hydrocarbon resources because the costs of foreign invasion, territorial occupation, international retaliation and damage to oil company relations deter even the most powerful countries from doing so. They talked about the myth of oil wars, about the logic behind why they will not happen and about why it is that the Russian invasion of Ukraine probably has very little to do with hydrocarbons at all.

"St Gregory the Dialogist relates of her that she was a mere nine years old when the most holy Mother of God appeared to her on two occasions, surrounded by virgins bathed in light. When Musa expressed her desire to be included in the resplendent company of the Queen of heaven, the Mother of God told her that she would come for her and take her within a month, outlining for her how she should spend those thirty days. On the twenty-fifth day, Musa took to her bed and on the thirtieth day the most pure and holy Mother again appeared to her, calling to her in a quiet voice, to which Musa replied: 'Here I am waiting, my Lady! I'm ready!', and she breathed forth her spirit. She passed from this life to life eternal in the fifth century." (Prologue)
