HAT Forum
Sat June 25th 2016
11 a.m. To 1 pm
OISE, 256 Bloor Street West Rm 8-201
Topic:"The Hounding of Vladimir Putin"
Proposer: Isobel Foot

Sometimes it seems the military class has to be constantly pushing for war with Russia. Constantly threatening.  One thing, it probably makes some people a lot of money!
In the Middle East, Russia is seen as the enemy when it supports the beleaguered Assad. We want him out - I’m not sure why it’s our business. In my opinion Putin has been sincere in trying to help that bleeding region.  We have a hard time to accept anything he does as good (e.g. dismantling Syria’s chemical weapons.
Now we’re being asked to build up NATO forces around Russia. The US and all are continually fomenting color revolutions and making war to challenge Russian influence.  They impose economic sanctions, rag about human rights.  Why?
