Waging Peace

Waging Peace is a campaign aimed at overcoming Russophobia and fostering a new nuclear disarmament treaty between the United States and Russia. Scott Ritter was scheduled to take a team that includes Ask the Inspector co-host Jeff Norman and Judge Andrew Napolitano into Russia as part of a 45-day trip from early-June to mid-July. In addition to visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg (the latter to report on the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum), the team was set to visit 14 other Russian cities “from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea, and Everywhere in Between.” However, the U.S. State Department ordered Scott’s passport to be confiscated at JFK Airport as he was about to depart for the trip on June 3.

The team is still planning to tour various cities this summer with an eye to capturing its true essence and spirit of the population. We’ll also stream our Ask the Inspector podcast live from each location, with various local guests of note, to help share and explain our experiences. In addition, we’ll post video highlights of each city we visit, and capture the entire journey on film for a three-part documentary that will also include footage from Scott’s two previous visits, to educate the audience on the reality of Russia today, and the absolute imperative for better US-Russia relations.

Scott was intimately involved as a weapons inspector in implementing the INF Treaty signed by Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan in 1987. Prior to that historic disarmament process, a treaty between the United States and Soviet Union had seemed impossible, much as it now seems impossible for US-Russia relations to improve. As such, Scott is uniquely qualified to lead this effort to defeat the existential doom that plagues us.
