On today’s episode of The Yaron Brook Show, topics included: Yaron’s review of American Sniper; the elections in Greece; everything wrong with President Obama’s State of the Union address; the policies Yaron would pass if he were president.
Three years ago, ARI hosted a symposium in Washington D.C. to explore American foreign policy in the Middle East in the decade after September 11. What have we learned since then? How should we evaluate America's policy in that volatile region? What lies ahead for U.S. relations with Israel and with a likely soon-to-be nuclear Iran? The 2011 event featured three panel discussions, with noted commentators and scholars presenting a range of viewpoints.
For years we at ARI have challenged the moral propriety of the Iraq war and its conduct. The basic reason: the war did not aim at advancing U.S. self-interest (the protection of the lives and freedom of Americans).
Much has certainly changed in Iraq since the nadir of the brutal civil war, but with increasing insurgent attacks, it’s fascinating to see the actual consequences of the U.S. policies that were widely credited with delivering us a “success”.
