Antiwar Radio: Doug Bandow

Doug Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, discusses his article “Mitt Romney: The Foreign Policy of Know-Nothingism;” the easier time Republicans have with diplomatic overtures since they don’t have to defend against “weakness” like Democrats; why you can’t be an Obama fan and morally principled; Glenn Greenwald’s lonely voice of dissent on the progressive Left; Romney’s empty sloganeering, like achieving “victory” in Afghanistan; and why Benjamin Netanyahu would be a de facto cabinet member in a Romney administration.

Doug Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, discusses North Korea’s acceptance of a deal to halt uranium enrichment and weapons testing in exchange for US food aid; why nobody should expect N. Korea to abandon their nuclear program or give up anything of military significance; closing US bases in S. Korea and Japan so the regional powers can resolve their own problems; and why China is more interested in trade than starting wars with its neighbors.

Doug Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, explains why Obama is among the most flagrant violators of the constitution’s delineation of the war powers, the uncertainty of Gadhafi’s successors in Libya, if and when he is ousted, why Obama needs to wrap up Libya before election season starts while not having the political capital to send in ground troops to take Tripoli, and why the US is (hopefully) too busy to intervene in Syria or Pakistan.

Doug Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, discusses his articles “Whiners at War” and “Libya: Resisting the Siren Call of Creeping Intervention;” the bogus pretexts for war, from Saddam Hussein’s nonexistent WMD cache to Col. Gadhafi’s supposed threat of a massacre in Benghazi; why “antiwar” is an overly-provocative word for the Left; why it’s hard to imagine a war the US isn’t involved in; and the god-complex developed by government officials possessing secret information.
