10/10/16 Conn Hallinan on ‘humanitarian’ excuses for war

“US Diplomacy, a Dangerous Proposal”, by Conn Hallinan from Foreign Policy in Focus is discussed on this episode of the Scott Horton Show. The United States’s so called “Responsibility to Protect” and the Doctrine of Humanitarian intervention, which has been hijacked by Samantha Powers, is talked about at length. Powers’s word destruction, and the ability to find the US “National Interest” in every conflicts is also reviewed.  The doctrine’s spread and use in Latin America is also detailed, with Venezuela and Honduras being examined in particular. Additional topics include China and Russia, on another great value of information for the Scott Horton Show.
