In their latest blatant provocation, the Ukrainian military has moved nearly half of all armed forces to the conflict zone on the border of the breakaway republics in the east.
Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss President Biden's "summit for hypocrisy." US President Joe Biden has ironically contradicted the underlying contention of his "summit for democracy" by asserting that the United States has the right to unilaterally label governments of the world and create dispossessed factions. Biden's latest move has been panned by international observers in many nations and serves to undermine the fundamental rights of sovereignty and national independence.
Mark Sleboda, Moscow-based international relations security analyst, joins us to discuss Eastern Europe. In their latest blatant provocation, the Ukrainian military has moved nearly half of all armed forces to the conflict zone on the border of the breakaway republics in the east. Observers are left to consider whether the move was planned by Western governments that control the client state of the US empire.
Jim Kavanagh, writer at thepolemicist.net and CounterPunch and author of "Danger in Society: Against Vaccine Passports,” joins us to discuss Craig Murray and Julian Assange.

Also, the high court in London is expected to rule shortly on the US appeal of the decision not to extradite Julian Assange to the US on espionage charges.
Dan Kovalik, writer, author, and lawyer, joins us to discuss the Syria airstrike. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has ordered a new investigation into the 2019 airstrike in Syria that killed 80 people, including over 60 women and children.

Also, the Iran nuclear negotiations are underway in Vienna, and Iranian leaders are holding firm to their requirement that the US return to fulfilling its agreed obligations to restart the agreement.

Miko Peled, author and activist, joins us to discuss Israel. Peled writes an enlightening article that summarizes the apartheid conditions in Israel. He found that even when he was arrested for protesting, he received preferential treatment over the Palestinians that were taken at the same time.
