Antiwar Radio: Ramzy Baroud

Ramzy Baroud, author of My Father Was a Freedom Fighter: Gaza’s Untold Story, discusses his article “East Africa at the Brink;” the multidimensional conflict in Sudan/South Sudan and neighboring countries; newly independent South Sudan’s devastating loss of oil income – which is the war and famine-wracked country’s entire economy; how US foreign policy disasters (like the Libyan War) create regional instability that justifies further interventions; why US interests are more geared toward disrupting China’s robust trade in Africa than controlling natural resources; and why a real Palestinian peace process will come from US pressure and Arab Spring momentum, not from the goodwill of Israel’s government.
