This is the second excerpt from an interview which I recently conducted via skype with Katehon, a Russian-based geo-political think tank. After giving an historical overview of the evolution of U.S.-Russian relationships from the Cold War-era to the present, I gave my views on NATO’s transformation from an alliance which was specifically constituted to combat the threat of a Soviet-led invasion of Western Europe into one which in the post-Cold War has been dedicated to inspiring and participating in the regime change of Arab secular governments. These illegal actions, which have succeeded in destroying Iraq, Libya and Syria, have been aided by weak Western European leaders and the institution of the European Union which has been a crucial factor in providing cover for Washington’s criminal enterprises.
