Are we on the road to a new Cold War? Buck Sexton and Raj Nair break down the history of U.S./Russia relations

With the ongoing situation in Ukraine and tensions high between Russia and the United States, it is odd to think that these two great nations were once allies. But, during World War II, Russia and the United States worked together to defeat the Nazis. Despite their opportunity to unite, opposing ideologies prevented the two countries from agreeing on much. Today, as our relationship with Russia lies in peril over the ongoing situation with Ukraine, knowing our past becomes even more important as we make decisions for the future.

Take a quick look into the past with Raj Nair from Liberty Treehouse and Buck Sexton from Real News as they discuss Russia’s relationship with the United States and where this relationship can lead in the future.

    When will Beck talk about the Jews role in the overthrow of the Tsar and implementation of Communism? All you do is kiss Jewish @$$!

    • Connor

      He will not because it is not reality.

      • Dirk Agia

        Not reality. lol Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) begs to differ…

          Your point would be relevant if the Soviets had torn down the churches and replaced them with synagogues (which they also tore down). Antisemitism was rife under the Tsars, Jews were prominent in all opposition groups at the time.

      It’s so surprising that there would be Jewish Communists (like all other groups in Russia) with Tzars who systematically murdered them. You know, like Stalin.

    Ukraine is now the modern symbolism of the wall of iron forming once again. Mr Obama you have lost and now you’ve become the spectator.
    We shouldn’t send money to Ukraine just because it will end up in Putin’s pocket.
    Mr Kerry stop poking the bear you have no leverage now. Sanctions are not enough to persuade Putin to withdraw. I blame Obama for taking away what leverage we had from the very beginning.
    If you disagree with me on this you need help big time.

    When countries are suffering economically especially because of the failure of the State. In order to create a scapegoat, they use war as their last resort. This goes for Russia and the U.S. The cold-war can quickly escalate into a hot war because these things cannot be controlled, especially when all the other nations of the world are in debt up to their eyeballs. Please people, do not fall for it like sheeple.

    Russia will simply take what they want. The US and the EU will not stop them. As I mentioned days before the Russians announced anything official I was notified by my source that the Russians would dump US treasuries and seize assets if the US and EU sanctioned them. Sure enough, they announced it. The US won’t do anything. If they dump our treasuries it could spark a sell off, not only that, but because we have a GLOBAL market, sanctioning Russia would cause the US and foreign markets to lose billions upon billions of dollars.

    Since equal justice implies that laws apply equally to all, and the range of skills and talents varies between each of us, the same rules will naturally lead to a wide range of unequal results.

    It also doesn’t help when we have a president that is extremely weak in foreign policies, high national debt, cutting military funding, apologetic campaigns, drawing redlines with no intent to back up his claim, and you know the Middle East war is just a political machine that has been going on since 9/11… Yet on the flip side of the coin (World War II) lasted only six years.

    On the road to a new cold war? No, more like we were already barrelling down the freeway at 75 m.p.h.

    Communists are devious opportunists. They take and take from those who are weak. Our failure to be strong will be our downfall. They desire to dismantle the old with false promises. Communists use people and circumstances to achieve their plans.
    They should never be trusted. The biggest mistake the West made, was helping the communists win in the second world war. Because, from a tiny evil seed grew weeds, which spread all over the world.
