Welcome to the security perimeter

A fascinating discussion of current national and international security issues. I interview experts on different subjects. More often than not, the discussion ends with a heated (but friendly) debate between me and my guest. So far we have covered issues ranging from the future of NATO, violence and law enforcement in Mexico, defense policy in Canada, the US and Mexico, North Korea, cybersecurity, organized crime... you name it we have covered it or will eventually do so. Every other episode I also give my take on the new "cold war" between russia and the US. Trust me, its getting dangerous. listen to find out why!!! Email me at perimeterpodcast@gmail.com for comments and suggestions for future episodes. Podcast is mostly in english, but every once and and while, we cover a topic in spanish.

So this latest installment of the MYTHBUSTING WW2 series looks at Hitler and Nazi`s and the claim that Hitler was a great diplomat in the 30s and the NAZI`s were great military strategists.

Part II, from 1939 to 1942 and part III from 1942 until the end of the war. Have I ever told you I HATE NAZIS?

So here is the 3rd and final episode on MYTHBUSTING WW2 and the belief that the soviets single handedly won the war. This episode looks at the final phase of the war, during and after the landings at Normandy in June of 1944. Russians love to argue that D DAY was a piece of cake, but they conveniently forget what happened at Falais and at the Battle of the Bulge. Listen in to get the details!!!!

This episode looks at the battle of stalingrad, the bombing (flattening) of german cities and the north african campaign among other things. In the process, I explain that people underestimate what the western allies did before D DAY in june of 1944. Next episode on...

Ok, so im on sabbatical and i was thinking of a podcast project. I came up with this idea to bust WW2 myths like, "well the NAZI were evil, but they were good military strategists" No they were not. They sucked They were horrible. Thank god the NAZIs made these horrendous military mistakes because it cost them the war. If the Nazis were not there, the german army may have actually won. Another myth: that the verseilles treaty punished the germans so much and that...
