August 1, 2014 – On this weeks Critical Conversations we talk with Dr. Jim Picht, senior political editor and an expert on Ukraine and Russia and ask if we are entering into “Obama’s Cold War.” Even if you lived through any portion of the Cold War (1946-1991) you might not understand the media’s question “Are we entering Obama’s Cold War? a term that most often refers to post-war tensions between the US and the Soviet Union following World War II. Coincidentally, it was during the Cold War, on Septembe 1, 1983, that the Soviet Union shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007, a Boeing 737 with 269 people aboard, incluidng a sitting congressman, when it violated Soviet airspace.
Also on the show will be guest host Bob Siegel, Communities Writer (Forbidden Table Talk) and radio host on KCBQ 1170, San Diego. Bob will be speaking with Dr. Richard A. Nixon, a practicing attorney in Califorina, Viet Nam vet and author of the controversial book “America, An Illusion of Freedom.”
