Head to Head - NATO: Guardian of peace or bellicose bully?

In this episode of Head to Head, Mehdi Hasan challenges Anders Fogh
Rasmussen, the former Danish prime minister and former NATO chief, on
the West's military alliance's role in Eastern Europe and the so-called
War on Terror.
We examine his record since assuming office in 2001, his role in the
European support for the Iraq War and ask whether his NATO policies
since 2009 have backfired.
Is it the West, or Putin who calls the shots in Ukraine? Has NATO
reignited the Cold War? Did it create a bigger problem in Libya? And did
it botch its mission in Afghanistan?
