Is NATO trying to provoke Russia w/ war games in Black Sea? (Full show)
NATO has just concluded “Operation Sea Breeze,” calculated to intimidate Russia into changing its posture toward neighboring Ukraine. Taking place in the Black Sea at the height of Russian beach season, it involved 32 countries from six continents, 5,000 troops, 32 warships and numerous aircraft, and more. Rick Sanchez explains its significance to Russians by means of a hypothetical parallel in the Gulf of Mexico.
He then discusses some of the history of the region and of the “Great Game” NATO seems bent on resurrecting in the region. Then investigative journalist and “Boom Bust'' co-host Ben Swann reports the details of NATO’s historic military exercise, as well as Russia’s more modest competing war game in nearby Syria and the Mediterranean.
