RT actually has some very interesting interviewees...ones that never get much play in the Western MSM. The big problem with RT is the obvious and constant bias. It's like FOX on steroids with it's nationalist agenda. I suspect RT will begin to be delisted around the world because of this issue. Which will be too bad because the tidbits of suppressed information it let out are worthwhile.
Not just my opinion by the way...
Thomas P. M. Barnett, a well known expert on the large scale military affairs, asserts that great-power warfare is unlikely to ever occur between nuclear powers. Core industrialized countries are becoming more economically intertwined and less likely to engage in ultimately self-destructive campaigns against trading partners. Such populations of people tend to favor peaceful engagement with others who share economic and political similarities. Therefore it is possible that the nuclear strike forces responsible for EAMs will practice their doomsday scenarios indefinitely. At the same time, conventional forces will shift focus to less observable operations against rogue regimes and adversaries who are unresponsive to deterrence. That means conflicts will often be fought covertly by special operations forces.
