12/21/18 Doug Bandow on Syria, Afghanistan, Cuba, and China

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Doug Bandow joins the show to talk about all four of his recent articles, covering China, Cuba, Yemen, and Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria and Afghanistan. The entire foreign policy establishment is melting down over the announcement, but Bandow says this is unequivocally the right move; American presence in the Middle East has accomplished basically nothing good and has only provoked more radicalism and unrest. Because everyone around Trump disagrees with him right now, Bandow thinks it’s vitally  important for people who do favor withdrawal to make themselves heard. Bandow and Scott also talk Yemen, Obama’s opening of relations with Cuba, and the recent arrest of Huawei’s finance chief.

Discussed on the show:

Doug Bandow is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and a regular contributor at Forbes Magazine, the National Interest, and elsewhere. He’s on Twitter @Doug_Bandow.
