5/17/19 Mashal Hashem and James Allen on the American Firms Lobbying for Death in Yemen

Mashal Hashem and James Allen, research associates with the Center for International Policy, join Scott to discuss their work on the congressional lobbying by American arms manufacturers. Last year the U.S. sold more than $4.5 billion of weapons to Saudi Arabia alone, and American firms donated thousands of dollars to the people behind those decisions. Lobbying by the likes of Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman create a perverse political incentive to start and continue wars.

5/17/19 Charles Glass on Julian Assange’s Arrest

Charles Glass talks about the arrest of Julian Assange, which is being cheered by partisans on both sides, since he has done enough to make enemies everywhere.

  • “Julian Assange Languishes in Prison as His Journalistic Collaborators Brandish Their Prizes” (The Intercept)
  • “WikiLeaks cites report saying Clinton mulled killing Assange with drones” (The Washington Examiner)

5/17/19 Jason Hartwig on Negotiating With Al-Shabaab in Somalia

Scott talks to Jason Hartwig about how to end the civil war in Somalia, where he recommends negotiating with Al-Shabaab as the best chance for peace. Like other countries where the U.S. military is involved, a decisive victory by one side might not be realistic, and will cost far more in blood and treasure.

  • “How To End The Civil War In Somalia: Negotiate With Al-Shabaab” (War on the Rocks)

5/17/19 Harry Kazianis on the North Korean Talks

Harry Kazianis discusses the negotiations between North Korea, South Korea, and the United States. Kazianis says that although North Korea has some nuclear weapon capability, they’re not a real threat to America, because the moment they launched a missile they would be wiped off the map in minutes. Their economy is also so small that they pose no possible economic threat. He says the very best thing for everyone involved—especially the North Korean people—is to try to reach a peace deal, something that many Democrats seem intent on opposing in order to score political points against President Trump.

Discussed on the show:

Harry Kazianis is director of defense studies at the Center for the National Interest and executive editor The National Interest. He previously served as editor of The Diplomat, a fellow at CSIS, and on the 2016 Ted Cruz foreign policy team. Follow him on Twitter @GrecianFormula.

5/17/19 José Niño Explains How Socialism Destroyed Venezuela

José Niño talks about his new book, How Socialism Destroyed Venezuela. He explains the debate between critics of socialism, who claim that the economic system is responsible for Venezuela’s problems, and its defenders, who maintain that socialism was working well until America and its allies began imposing sanctions and trying to take control of the country’s oil. Niño clarifies, however, that Venezuelans have been living under socialism for much longer than most people realize, and that they were facing severe economic problems as early as the 1950s. Venezuela, in fact, was on of the only countries in the world to get poorer between the 1950s and the 1990s, before most of the American interference took place.

José Niño is a Venezuelan-American freelance writer. He is the author of The Ten Myths of Gun Control and How Socialism Destroyed Venezuela. Find him on Twitter @JoseAlNino.
