11/30/18 Ted Galen Carpenter on Libya and Ukraine

by | Dec 1, 2018

Ted Carpenter rejoins the show to discuss both of his recent articles for The American Conservative. The first outlines Libya’s political history since the ouster of Gaddafi, in which several promised democratic elections have come and gone. Now politicians are promising an election in early 2019, but Carpenter thinks this one too either won’t happen, or will be in some way illegitimate. His second article discusses the turmoil in Ukraine and how U.S. and NATO policy have worsened the situation there. Both Carpenter and Scott think President Trump should employ his famed deal-making abilities as much as possible with Russia; even if the news media make a stink about it, the American people are generally on the side of peace.

Discussed on the show:

Ted Galen Carpenter is a senior fellow for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute. Carpenter has written 10 books including “America’s Coming War with China: A Collision Course over Taiwan” and is a contributing editor at The American Conservative Magazine and the National Interest.
