Max Blumenthal recounts his recent trip to Syria, where he witnessed firsthand the destruction wrought by the proxy war fought there with the support of the U.S. To this day, willingness to negotiate with the Assad regime makes you a pariah in Washington, as we’ve seen from Tulsi Gabbard’s presidential campaign. Blumenthal also talks about America’s economic war on Iran, which, like all sanctions, hurts only a country’s people and rarely does anything to accomplish the supposed political ends.
Discussed on the show:
- “Meet the militantly pro-Israel Trump official directing the economic war on Iran” (The Grayzone)
- “Commentary: I just visited Iran. Here’s what I heard about the U.S.” (Reuters)
Director and writer of “Killing Gaza,” Max Blumenthal is a senior editor of the Grayzone Project and the author Goliath, Republican Gomorrah, and The 51 Day War. Follow Max on Twitter @MaxBlumenthal.
