Program Title: NATO and Western Militarism in a Multipolar World
Description: If NATO was conceived to collectively defend countries in the North Atlantic region from the 'Soviet threat', why has NATO's military activity accelerated in the quarter century since the Soviet Union's collapse? A conference in Winnipeg in early April of 2017 sought to explore these and related questions. This week's episode of the Global Research News Hour carries some of the audio from that conference.
