Mark Perry discusses some of the disasters of America’s foreign policy for the last 20 years, particularly U.S. support for Saudi Arabia in their war in Yemen and repeated cases of empowering Iran by starting or supporting ill-advised conflicts that end up making Iran look strong. Perry says there’s no way to wrap up our involvement in the region; America simply needs to get out now and stop perpetrating this injustice altogether.
