A Good Hard Look (And Listen) At American Foreign Policy
Whether it’s Bush Jr. starving 1 million Iraqi's to death with trade sanctions, Obama arming Al-Qaeda to overthrow the government of Syria, or Trump allowing for the Saudi-US partnered genocide in Yemen to continue, the United States foreign policy over the last couple of decades makes for a hard case to defend.
Since Clinton and even Bush Senior before him, the intervention-based model of foreign policy in the Middle East has earned its fair share of critics. Tom Woods, a New York Times Best-selling author of 12 books and host of the Tom Woods Show makes for a great podcast listen if you’re looking for a sharper, more constitutionally-focused view on American economics and foreign policy.
A politically engaged individual would perhaps agree that it’s always nice to hear a fresh opinion in the partisan media landscape, and Tom Woods does a great job of staying focused on issues that have no basis being partisan issues, genocide, the national debt, etc.
His most recent episode with fellow author/podcast host and anti-war advocate Scott Horton, reveals the shocking failures and arrogance going on down by 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Mr. Horton does a fantastic job of removing right/left veils and instead gives a clear picture of why imperialist and interventionist foreign policy has advanced neither democratic nor republican sympathies, but instead created unstable failed states, millions of innocent deaths, and a national debt which exceeds 20 trillion dollars.
