It's Easter Sunday today. I'm going to spend some time with the folks, and remember why I keep doing this.
So, no essay today. Instead, I'm embedding James Corbett's Backgrounder report for Global Research; that's what's referred to the title above.
Here's his Description: "As the world's attention turns to events in eastern Europe, rising tensions between the world's nuclear superpowers is once again raising the specter of the cold war. And just as in the cold war, this conflict, too, brings with it the prospect of nuclear warfare. Find out more about the nuclear threat in this week's GRTV Backgrounder."
