Fool’s Errand Turns 1

My book, Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan came out a year ago today. It was good timing since I knew that Trump was about to launch his first escalation there and that other than that, the status quo would hold: the Taliban would continue to slowly...

Scott interviews Gareth Porter about John Bolton’s most recent efforts to raise tensions with Iran.

7/26/19 Hassan El-Tayyab on Congress’ Unusually Good Antiwar Efforts

Hassan El-Tayyab summarizes the efforts in congress to end America’s various wars in the Middle East, led mostly by democrats, but also with the support of some liberty-oriented republicans. Democrats have been accused of slashing the military because their proposed NDAA budget is smaller than the republicans’. But the critics leave out the fact that it too would mean an increase from last year, and is almost as large as the republican proposal. Scott theorizes that this multi-pronged campaign in congress may have been partly responsible for the recent announcement that the UAE will be withdrawing most of its soldiers from Yemen, signaling a possible end to the war.

7/23/19 Pat Buchanan on America’s Endless Wars

Scott interviews Pat Buchanan about his life in politics and the lessons we can apply to today. Buchanan was a committed cold warrior during the 1980s, but then advocated withdrawal of the U.S. from Europe after the Soviet Union collapsed, and urged that NATO not expand up to Russia’s border. Much of his advice has been ignored, and the consequences have been America’s catastrophic and endless wars. Today, he is optimistic that we will not have a war with Iran, since he believes that President Trump knows what a bad idea that is, and because Iran does not want, and has never wanted, nuclear weapons. This takes the main excuse for war off the table.

Discussed on the show:

Pat Buchanan is a former Republican presidential candidate and political analyst who advised Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Reagan. He is the author of Churchill, Hitler, and “The Unnecessary War”: How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World and A Republic, Not an Empire: Reclaiming America’s Destiny.

7/17/19 Lyle J. Goldstein on the Consequences of War with Russia

Scott interviews Lyle J. Goldstein about what the “Russiagate” narrative means for America’s relationship with Russia. Scott and Goldstein remind us that a hot war would probably mean the destruction of both American and Russian cities with tactical nukes, and possibly the devastation of human civilization all over the world. For that reason it’s incredibly irresponsible of the media to push the narrative that the Russian government attacked our country during the 2016 election, and that any sign of President Trump’s conciliation toward Putin is confirmation that he’s a foreign agent.

7/17/19 Jason Ditz on Iran, Yemen, and Afghanistan

Jason Ditz updates Scott on the news from the Middle East. Recently, a missing Emirati tanker that some claimed had been seized by Iran in the Strait of Hormuz was revealed to have simply been towed there voluntarily for repairs. In other news, the UAE has announced the withdrawal of its troops from Yemen, probably realizing it can’t win a ground war there, at least not without stretching itself too thinly and becoming exposed at home. Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, seems content to keep fighting the war, since they want to ensure that the entire country is ruled by a friendly regime, or even a puppet ruler.
