Doug Bandow explains why the pathological need for neocons and neoliberals in Washington to antagonize other powerful countries is so dangerous for America. Russia and China, he says, can both be our allies. It makes no sense for the U.S. military to be involved in every conflict everywhere in the world, and pretending to be the world empire will only endanger American interests by making future conflicts more likely.
Discussed on the show:
- “Why The Hawks Are Wrong About China Too” (The American Conservative)
- “The Berlin Wall: Its Rise, Fall, and Legacy” (Foundation for Economic Education)
