CrossTalk: Alternative order

CrossTalking with Andy Mok, Danny Haiphong, and John Gong.

CrossTalk, HOME EDITION: Schizophrenic justice

The International Criminal Court has accused Russia of committing war crimes in Ukraine. Of course, the Biden administration could not be more pleased. The ICC has a history of doing Washington’s bidding – the same court Washington refuses to be a part of.

CrossTalk: Hard talk on Ukraine

Slowly but surely, legacy media support of the West’s war on Russia is changing. Ukraine is not winning and is hardly likely to win in the end. Propaganda is at times powerful, but cold hard facts eventually trump fables written by the elite’s mediocre scribes.

CrossTalking with Ryan Cristian, Rachel Marsden, and Pepe Escobar.

CrossTalk: China’s masterstroke

China has performed a masterstroke of diplomacy. It has brokered an agreement that will see Iran and Saudi Arabia reestablish diplomatic relations once more. This could be a step that not only reorders the Middle East, but also ushers in an era of stability in the region. Now, Washington is the odd-man out.

CrossTalking with Mohammad Marandi, Andy Mok, and Pierre-Emmanuel Thomann.
