Antiwar Radio: Eric Margolis

Eric Margolis, foreign correspondent and author of War at the Top of the World and American Raj, discusses the US preference for new Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman as a successor for Mubarak; why the Egypt/1979 Iran comparisons fail despite the dire warnings of neoconservatives; the history of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is now dominated by moderates and old men; how Egyptians are disgraced by their government’s abandonment of the Palestinian cause; how the Palestine Papers lay bare the charade of “peace talks” and expose PA officials as stooges of the US and Israel; and how Turkey, not Tunisia, began the revolutionary push in the Mideast.
