8/8/18 Ted Galen Carpenter on Venezuela and Russia

Cato Institute Senior Fellow Ted Galen Carpenter joins Scott to talk Venezuela, Russia, and the United States’ penchant for supporting brutal regimes. Though government officials like to talk a big game when it comes to freedom and democracy, they mostly only support those things when it’s in their political interest—otherwise they’re perfectly happy to put up with tyranny and hope Americans don’t notice. Carpenter fears that the growing turmoil in Venezuela may be yet another opportunity for military intervention by an American president.

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.
