Charisse Burden-Stelly and Erica Caines - Ukraine and Russia and NATO's war of aggression

Holy shit. 

Russia has invaded Ukraine. The borders of a sovereign nation (ahem. in Europe) have been compromised for the first time since WWII. Is Putin Hitler? Is Zelenskyy Superman? The narrative around Ukraine is so hysterical that even war criminal Condoleezza Rice - with a straight face - is denouncing preemptive war. 

The US's role in this? Who knows. Just selling arms to a nation bordering Russia. Nothing to see here. NATO? Oh well, that's just too complicated to figure out, right?

Dr. CBS and Erica Caines from Black Alliance for Peace are here to call Bullshit. NATO, under US leadership, has been surrounding Russia since the days George H.W. Bush's National Security Advisor promised that NATO would expand "not an inch eastward" way back in 1990. So maybe this whole thing isn't about Putin losing his marbles, or about Ukraine's US-funded neo-nazi Azov Battalion but US imperialism? 

You'll have to listen to hear more!
