Scott Ritter: Russia is on the right side of history

Frens and foes! May I ask y’all to watch this speech by Scott Ritter he held at the Community Church of Boston? Ritter is one of your own, a military man and former UN weapons inspector, so you can be assured he ain’t cozy with Putin or Russia at all. But he’s able to put his American self aside for a moment of clarity and logical deduction. He has learned his lessons from history. Are you able to do the same?

And please accept my apologies should his presentation enrage you. That’s neither Mr. Ritter’s nor my purpose. If anything I want you to try to slip out of your patriotic/nationalistic skin, put your wishful thinking aside for a moment, soak up info and process it as good as your pro-American bias allows you to. And no fear, Ritter’s not a pretentious intellekshual but uses short and simple words and often diverts into personal anecdotes. So this is easy listening. 😉

That’s all I’m asking. Thx for consideration.

About Scott Ritter: Oh, yes, you’ve seen him before as he’s one of the most prominent faces on YouTube and other social media right now, and he is so for a certain reason: Professionalism and Competence.

Mr. Ritter, the stage is yours:

From Scott Ritter’s talk at CCB. Watch the full video here:

Former UN weapons inspector and US Marine intelligence officer Scott Ritter speaks at the Community Church of Boston, about the conflict in Ukraine, US-Russia relations, and his most recent book Disarmament in the Time of Perestroika: Arms Control and the End of the Soviet Union.

Scott also wrote SCORPION KING: America’s Suicidal Embrace of Nuclear Weapons from FDR to Trump.

Having served in the Soviet Union, Scott offers an alternative perspective to the war in Ukraine when compared to the mainstream, corporate media. Before the 2003 Iraq War, Scott gained prominence as a weapons inspector for correctly stating that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction.

Scott Ritter’s most recent book, Disarmament in the Time of Perestroika: Arms Control and the End of the Soviet Union, “is the definitive history of the implementation of the INF Treaty signed by Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan in all its complexities.” The negotiations of the INF Treaty offer a blueprint for how world powers can peacefully negotiate complex situations.


  1. In fact, he is right. NATO has become a serious threat to Russia, when the USSR fell apart. Step by step the “NATO-Osterweiterung” happened and brought nuclear warheads closer and closer to Moscow’s doorstep.
    This doesn’t justify Russia’s war but one has to take in consideration the historical context of today’s conflict.
