Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: A special live edition of the show analyzing the latest developments in Ukraine. Fareed speaks with former National Security Advisor Tom Donilon before convening a panel of analysts including New York University’s Stephen Cohen, Canadian politician and journalist Chrystia Freeland and Princeton University’s Stephen Kotkin.
Also on the show, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu finally came out for Secretary of State John Kerry's Middle East peace efforts this week. But he faces intense opposition even from within his own cabinet – Fareed speaks with Israel’s economics minister, Naftali Bennett, who explains why he believes Netanyahu is wrong.
And, is failure actually good for you? That's what a new book suggests, and Fareed will be speaking with the author.

Fareed, in listening to all of the commentary on the Ukraine crisis, your analysis stands out and is one that I agree with concerning the fact that the Ukraine is in a revolutionary stage now, with a deposed Russian, and may I add "puppet regime" President, and Putin's motives to assault Crimea began with the uprising in Kiev in Feb. that was a very embarrassing distraction to him during "his" Olympic moments of glory, (egg on his face), closely followed by Russia's early loss and exit from the hockey arena, (the pride of the USSR), and the final blow being the flight by night of his appointed President in Ukraine. The combined onlslaughts to his ego and personality, I believe motivated him out of rage!
Putin been nothing short of brilliant in a strategic war sense, as he's employed subterfuge whenever and wherever possible, as he is now in a position to call "checkmate" on Crimea today. Sad but true...
I would very much like to hear your view/take on these thoughts
I am hearing this notion that there are two narratives regarding the Ukrainian crisis. I disagree with this completely. There are three. The Bearish Pro-Russia, the Bearish Pro-West and the Bullish Pro-Everyone. Strict nationalism never fits well into a global business plan.
You have only 3 likes on Facebook and an evident propaganda .Sorry for that, Mrs.Fareed Zakaria.
This is how I see and saw the situation surrounding the Crimea in the past 17 days.
There is no doubt that Russia and Putin will do what it takes to keep their control over the Crimea and especially the Navel Bases. So frankly no surprise there.
Putin has ordered some navy vessel back from the Mediterranean on the same day Janukowitsch was ousted. So it was clear fro Putin days before if not even weeks before what he woud do if he loses control of the Ukrainien government.
As matter of fact the US military knew of Russian troop and ship movements days before the Russian military took control of key areas in the Crimea.
This situation needs the sugar and wip approach towards the Russians. Also if the Russian Ambassador to the UN makes false statements, he and Putin should be challenged to these statements. It is time that lies and fabricated statements are clearly addressed by other member states.
The parliament pushed Janukowitsch out. So by the rule of law he is not the president anymore. So Putin following a request by Janukowitsch is another lie.
Russians living on the Crimea where never threatened by anyone it is time that Putin is put on the spot. The Olympic games where givin to Russian because it was a political decision. Well it is clear that it did nothing but to bolster Putin’s ego.
Obviously Putin knows Russia would not stand a chance against Nato forces, but he also knows that NATO as a whole is incapable to act swift when necessary. However I believe the following is possible and should be done now, not tomorrow, now.
1. To me this has the making of the Kuba 1962 crisis all over again. The international community should have and still should send war ships into the black sea just to make a point to Putin and to be ready.
2. Any international sport events in Russia should be canceled. Yes Russian sports people can continue to compete outside of Russia but all international events scheduled in Russia should be cancelled by the international community as of now.
3. No new visas will be issued to Russians wanting to travel outside of Russia.
4. Imports of Russian goods will be halted.
Make an immediate firm stand against Putin. Start with point 1 and open talks for a week. Nothing changes point 2 should be implemented another week of talks. Still nothing changes implement point 3 and 4.
This is a matter of maximum 4 weeks period, this can not be dragged out for months as usual.
I’ve listened to Steve Cohen’s analysis of the situation in Ukraine twice, most recently this afternoon on GPS. I have great respect for Cohen’s knowledge of Russia and the USSR, but it is with some trepidation that I disagree with his analysis of the situation with regard to the Ukraine. Despite the saber rattling by NATO, and the movement of military assets, I do not see war on the horizon and I don’t think Putin does either. First, I don’t think Putin has much confidence in Russia’s military. Secondly, the USSR suffered catastrophic losses during World War II – including defence of the Crimea – and Russians are acutely aware of that history. Thirdly, even Putin is smart enough to know that wars cost money. Strictly from an economic standpoint, involvement in Crimea was stupid. War with NATO would be catastrophic. I do think, however, that Russia understands that the U.S. is war-weary and it probably would take something more serious that forced annexation of Eastern Ukraine to persuade any American government to engage militarily. This may embolden him, but I think Putin knows there is a limit.
Your perma link to the video on the Ukraine
On GPS Sunday: Live analysis on the latest developments in Ukraine
Instead links to a video on Israeli Minister rejects peace plan,
I saw the actual segment on Sunday, and would like to see it again, can the link be fixed please?
Ton Donilon's advice was useful. Stephen Cohen spoke as if he was a relic of the Cold War himself. Stephen Kotkin had deep insight in Russian studies. Chrystia Freeland talked like an idealist. Naftali Bennet didn't make a trustworthy impression.

It's like a couple of us have kept sainyg to Chuck in Tiny Town; FF creates all kinds of problems and issues, even old-ass versions that we have had at work to look at blades. Chrome is way faster and with the exception of the worldwide outage for a few minutes the other day, I have had zero problems with it. They have have a version for Linux: Chromium. Same deal. Works great. OFD
