Scott talks to Gareth Porter about war with Iran. Porter is still convinced most people realize that such a war would be so costly in lives and dollars that it’s not even worth considering, but worries about National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who have been able to get their hooks into President Trump in the past.
Discussed on the show:
- “The Right May Finally Get Its War on Iran” (Truthdig)
- Center for Strategic and International Studies
