TONIGHT: A very special broadcast of the Andrea Shea King show focused on the battle to DEFEAT the Iranian Nuclear Deal. The Conservative Campaign Committee is pushing to stop the Iran Nuclear Deal with radio and tv ads and a rally set for Tuesday, Aug. 18th in Las Vegas right in fron of Sen. Harry Reid's office. Tonight we talk with some of the people involved. This so-called "Deal" is really a treaty. And a bad one at that.
They never really went away, but for almost 20 years the world had a holiday from an old challenge and a new one; Russia and the prospect of nuclear war.
Some thought, and more hoped that with the end of the Cold War, a newer world order would emerge that would enable an era of stability and peace. In a way, it did – but only in spots and for short periods of time.
While for the last 15 years most of the attention was focused on the expansion of radical Islam, two not unrelated events began to wax. From the ashes of the Soviet Union, fed by a charismatic leader and a resource extraction economy, Russian began to reassert itself in a manner consistent with the last 500 years of its history, and in parallel – the boogyman of the second half of the 20th Century began to grow as well; the proliferation and possible use nuclear weapons.
To discuss this and more for the full hour will be Dr. Tom Nichols,
Tom is a professor at the Naval War College and at the Harvard Extension School, as well as a Senior Associate of the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs in New York City and a Fellow of the International History Institute at Boston University.

By the 21st century it appeared that science was seen as the ultimate source of truth, that technology was the basis of a good life, that God was dead and atheism ruled supreme, that sexual pleasure had been liberated from childbearing and family life, that women could share power with men and that all truth's were relative and open to negotiation. The individual was seen as more important than the group and it was assumed individual creativity and happiness was humankind's legitimate moral highpoint. Many of those who embraced modern society were unhappy how society had become rampantly materialistic defining success in terms of celebrity and the acquisition of expensive and sophisiticated toys. They had forgotten that for billions of the world's inhabitants modernity had destroyed a different notion of a correct and moral way of life. The pushback against modernity began to resurrect a world in which the manly man and the warrior were most admired, in which loyalty to one's tribe trumped loyalty to the individual, in which the proper role of women was found in procreation and service to the family and in which the holy truth's spoken by the tribe's god(s) demanded obedience. Those on each side of these different truths and ways of life began to demonize and dehumanize those on the other side. Fear and hatred replaced reason and understanding even in those societies that seemed committed to a modern "scientific" way of life. Increasingly all felt threatened and saw themselves as the victims of the "monstrous dehumanized" other. In those parts of the world which had never fully bought into notions of modernity rage led many to declare a holy war against the infidels. Those on all sides began to arm themselves with whatever weapons became availalble including a race for nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction.
