New Russia Sanctions Come as Hacking Narrative Falls Apart

Why more sanctions on Russia now over the 2014 Ukraine coup and aftermath? Why new sanctions now as the claims that Russia "hacked" the US election seem to be based on ever more flimsy assumptions? Because sanctions are falsely seen as a harmless way for Washington to compel other countries to comply with its foreign policy goals. In fact sanctions often lead to war. RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed on the new sanctions and also on a peculiar section of the sanctions legislation that might be interpreted as the first move against Russian government-funded media like RT and Sputnik

Is Krugman Right About Syria?

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is skewed weekly by libertarian luminaries Robert Murphy and Tom Woods in their "Contra Krugman" podcast. For this episode, RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins the duo to pick apart a column by Krugman criticizing Trump's missile strike on Syria for being merely a "publicity stunt."

The Last Palm Sunday in Syria?

On Palm Sunday, Syrian President Assad visited a Christian church to mark the beginning of Holy Week, a most important time on the Christian calendar. Though not himself a Christian, Assad, for all his faults, has maintained Syria as a multi-confessional, secular state, where Christians and other religious minorities can worship freely. As RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT in the below interview, if the Trump Administration has its way and Assad is overthrown, it will likely be the last Palm Sunday for Christians in Syria. McAdams also comments on the Lavrov/Tillerson meeting in Moscow and the UN Security Council vote on Syrian chemical weapons...

You can watch the entire conference from the comfort of your home (or mobile device) here...

NATO Wants to Bring Us ‘As Close as Humanly Possible’ to War

The Senate vote to admitting Montenegro to NATO was not at all about US security or the US national interest, according to the Senators who voted for it. It was all about Russia. It was all about the "Russian threat." It's all about creating momentum for new NATO members even close to Russia, like Ukraine or Georgia. RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed by RT America about the recent vote on Montenegro...

New Russia Sanctions ‘Underscore Vindictiveness & Pettiness’ of Obama Administration

How should the Russian president respond to President Obama's announcement yesterday of new US sanctions, the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, and the closing of two Russian government owned facilities in the US? He should ignore it, RPI Director Daniel McAdams tells RT. That would show how petty and vindictive -- and how weak -- the outgoing Obama Administration really is.
