You read that right: The chances of a big war between the US and Russia are greater now than ever. But the Russia/Trump scandal effectively prevents the dialogue essential to preventing a war. Our guest Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, shares his deep knowledge about the powderkeg that is the Middle East. Did you know that the US has established a military base in Israel, specifically putting our troops in harms way. If they are attacked, of course a big war will follow. And since Iran couldn’t beat Iraq, Wilkerson argues they are no threat to super-militarized Israel.  Oddly enough, Israel’s super-hawk Netanyahu is most popular in the US Congress while Trump is most popular in the Israeli Knesset.  Meanwhile Trump intends to deliver plutonium to the Saudis, again greatly increasing the chances of a big regional (or even bigger) war.
