Download Episode.

Scott is joined by Ted Postol of MIT to discuss the danger of recent Ukrainian strikes on parts of Russia’s early warning system. Postol explains why satellite limitations make Russia dependent on ground radar systems to detect incoming nuclear-armed missiles. He and Scott then discuss the stupidity of helping Ukraine damage the one thing that can help the Russians confirm they are not under nuclear attack.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Russia’s Antiquated Nuclear Warning System Jeopardizes Us All” (Washington Monthly)

Ted Postol is a professor emeritus of Science, Technology, and International Security at MIT. He has written about nuclear weapons issues and the chemical attacks in Syria.
