Scott interviews political analyst Gilbert Doctorow about the tensions in Eastern Europe. Doctorow points to the strong state of the Russian economy as sufficient evidence that they won’t want to start a new conflict, much less a massive land war. They also discuss the frustrations some Europeans are expressing with all the war hype, which is hurting parts of the European economy.
