Episode 469 Tactical Nukes in Ukraine?

John Manza was Assistant Secretary General for Operations in NATO; Frederic Pearson and Alvin Saperstein are retired professors at Wayne State University, and Erika Simpson is a political science professor at Western University. All are knowledgeable about NATO’s nuclear strategy. They discuss the new plans arising from this week’s NATO summit and how likely Putin is to use a tactical nuke in the Ukraine war. This is unlikely unless Russia is losing. But this winter, the gas shortage in Europe is likely to weaken the European commitment to sanctions.
