06/08/12 – Eric Margolis – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jun 8, 2012 | Interviews

Eric Margolis, internationally syndicated columnist and author of American Raj, discusses the fundamentally flawed Middle East countries created after the Ottoman Empire’s dissolution; the US’s first attempt at regime change in Syria in 1948, as told in The Game of Nations: The Amorality of Power Politics; a history of the Baath Party; the chance for regional autonomy in Syria instead of a bloody civil war; why the US insists on picking fights with Russia in Azerbaijan, Georgia and Syria; and why Georgia’s inclusion in NATO would be as ridiculous as Puerto Rico joining the Warsaw pact.
