How Will Ukraine Conflict End?
By New Rules
In this week’s episode of the New Rules podcast, host Dimitri Simes Jr. speaks with Alexander Mercouris, geopolitical analyst and cohost of The Duran, about how Zelensky ‘blackmails’ the United States, how NATO will respond to Ukraine’s battlefield struggles, and the obstacles to meaningful peace talks.
“The Ukrainians will do everything they can to disrupt negotiations. They will try to goad the Russians into extreme reactions, which they can then capitalize on to build-up opposition to Russia in the West. And of course, they will pull every lever that they can in the United States and Europe with people who are sympathetic to themselves. They will do everything they can to disrupt the peace process.”
Here’s what others had to say:
Alexander is 100% correct. It takes time for dissent to grow. It took time during the Vietnam War for the anti-war movement to grow. Once the soldier started to return and tell the truth and joined in the protests, the anti-war movement really escalated. The media was also more honest then, than it is now.
Great discussion, excellent guest, Alexander Mercouris, one of the best analysts out there.
Brilliant assessment as usual from Alexander Mercouris, the “Oracle of London”
Alexander appearing in New Rules was very nice of him. He is always very good, as usual.
Great interview, and Alex is fantastic as always with his analysis.
On a light not though, I always think that Alex looks like he is broadcasting from a room in the Father Ted house.
