Also: NATO's missile shield as "strategic options".

by Phil Taylor the Taylor Report for CIUT

Phil continues the investigation into the arrest and trial of Victoire Ingabire, the Rwandan woman who returned from Holland to run for the office of Rwandan president, only to end up in a Rwandan jail. This presidential candidate is now on trial in Kigali, where she has dismissed her lawyer as a protest against the court and refused to participate further.

Later in the program, Rick Rozoff of Stop NATO explains NATO's endgame in installing a missile "shield" in Poland and Romania as a means of realizing Ronald Reagan's dream of "a star wars missile defence." In response to this escalation of the arms race, Russia has described its strategic possibilities. Rozoff discusses NATO options for its conference in Chicago on May 20, at which there will be large anti-war protests.
