David Vine makes the case that the U.S.’s roughly 800 military bases in over 130 countries are harmful not only to those countries’ interests, but to America’s own self-interest as well. His movement seeks to bring together people from all parties to force political change in Washington.
Discussed on the show:
- “Left-Right Alliance for Closing U.S. Military Bases Around the World” (Institute for Public Accuracy)
- “11/5/18 Stephen Walt on a Realist Foreign Policy” (Libertarian Institute)
David Vine is a professor of Anthropology at American University and the author of Island of Shame: The Secret History of the U.S. Military Base on Diego Garcia. He also writes for the New York Times, Washington Post, and The Guardian, among others. Follow him on Twitter @davidsvine.
