US forces practicing nuclear attack on Russia (Full show)
The top military officers of Russia and the US met to discuss "security issues of concern," including US bombers making sorties across Eastern Europe. Meanwhile, President Biden is releasing the largest amount of the country's strategic oil reserves in US history and releasing a global action plan to combat astronomically high gasoline prices. But the price at the pump may take weeks to go down. The national average of regular unleaded gas is $3.40. RT America's John Huddy reports. Then Peter Kuznick of American University and David Tawil of Maglan Capital join to discuss Biden's unprecedented move and the intensifying acrimony between the US and Russia.
Plus, the US presence continues in Eastern Syria, where the US still has 900 troops against the wishes of the internationally recognized government of President Assad. Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof shares his insights. He says they're there to limit Iranian influence, protect the Kurds (whom Washington nurtures as a proxy) and to retain control of oil wells in the area.
Then RT America's Natasha Sweatte reports on NASA's exciting and historic mission to test its experimental technology designed to change the trajectory of asteroids. The mission's success would do much to assuage the fears of those worried about an asteroid hitting the Earth.
