Air date: 
Tue, 07/22/2014 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
The downing of an airliner over Ukraine is but the latest episode in a long, bloody history.

Ukraine is in chaos. The world is agog over the recent downing of a Malaysian airliner there, and the nation has been in turmoil since the ouster of its president earlier this year. But in truth, Ukraine and the other traditional "blood lands" of Eastern Europe -- Poland, Belarus, and the Balkan states -- have been squeezed between empires for centuries. Abe and Joe look at the latest chapter in Eastern Europe's grim history, and take your calls.
