    Although Trump seems rational the UK sounds desperate.

    For over seven decades the North Atlantic Alliance has been expanding eastward at an alarming rate, doubling in size after the end of the Cold War. Recent geopolitical developments – such as Brexit, EU’s rhetoric on the need to build its own armed forces, baseless anti-Russian hysteria propagated by politicians mostly from Poland and the Baltics – have all added to NATO’s sabre rattling. Just recently, UK defense secretary made a sensational claim that only the Alliance can deter Russia’s aggression, without, of course, mentioning the fact that it is the Alliance that acted the aggressor part on a number of occasions. Bill Hicks, Steve Hughes, and Dylan Moran deliver the funny, while Bryan MacDonald (Irish journalist) shares his professional opinion.
