NATO Rhetoric Rises as Russia expels German diplomats

Russia has expelled two German diplomats from the nation. The move in response to a German court sentencing a Russian national to life in prison over the murder of a Chechen nationalist in the country. This, as rhetoric and accusations continue to swirl between NATO and Russia on the issue of Ukraine, Germany’s defense minister declaring that Russia would not dictate terms to NATO—over what Russia sees as the alliance’s expansionist policy. George Szamuely—writer and Senior Fellow at the Global Policy Institute in London and conservative radio host Steve Gruber weigh in.

That journalist, Director of the Electronic Intifada and author Ali Abunimah joins In Question to explain.
