SWEDEN LOST NEUTRALITY & BECOMING MILITARIZED



Swedish and Finnish leaders have reinvigorated a push for their traditionally non-aligned countries to join NATO, in the face of what they say is a Russian threat. But does Russia really pose a threat to European security, or has it become a convenient scapegoat for growing militarism in Europe? How can Russia and the western world end the conflict in Ukraine, and rebuild peace by peace? Oksana is joined by the founder of the Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research, Dr Jan Oberg, to examine these issues.

The US Ambassador to Sweden is currently right-winger Mark Brzezinski, the son of Zbigniew who was Jimmy Carter's national security adviser and who claims that he recruited Obama while at Columbia University.  (Zbigniew was the son of a Polish diplomat to Nazi Germany in late 1930's.)

I remember years ago Dr. Manning Marable speaking at one of our annual conferences of the Florida Coalition for Peace & Justice.  He told us that the oligarchy was going to recruit people of color for top political positions who were ambitious and could be controlled as the US increasingly has a population that is predominately composed of people of color.
