Joe Kent returns to the show to talk about the American mission in Iraq and Syria. Before three Americans were killed by a drone on the border of Syria two weeks ago, the troops stationed there were said to be on an anti-ISIS mission. But now US forces are fighting the very Shia militias that Washington has been funding. Kent has a lot of personal experience in the region and a deep knowledge of the factional dynamics at play. He and Scott talk about how ridiculous and dangerous the American deployments are.
