3/27/20 Reese Erlich: US Beats War Drums in Middle East

Scott interviews Reese Erlich about his latest antiwar.com column, which describes the dangerous game being played by the war hawks in Washington as they ratchet up tensions with Iran. The Trump administration has retaliated several times against Katib Hezbollah targets in Iraq for alleged attacks on U.S. military bases there, and of course ordered the assassination of Qasem Soleimani in January. These acts of force could easily blossom into full-scale war, but even if they don’t, they still put American troops in unnecessary danger. The safest thing for these soldiers, and for the rest of the country, would be to end all hostilities and bring everyone home.
