Antiwar Radio: Eric Margolis

Eric Margolis, foreign correspondent and author of War at the Top of the World and American Raj, discusses his article “Shock, Awe and Déjà Vu in Libya;” the self-inflicted political pressure on Sarkozy and Obama to force Gaddafi from power, lest they lose reelection themselves; why the West’s preferred successor will likely be chosen from London’s ample community of Libyan expatriates; the many questions left unanswered by hasty liberal interventionists; and the officers in AFRICOM who relish the chance to project power and win medals.
