On today’s show, Allen Ruff explores President Trump’s removal of troops from Syria. And what about the resignation of James “Mad Dog” Mattis, the supposed “grown up in the room”? And how does the now-canonized H.W. Bush factor in regard to the Middle East?
Those and more question with critical Middle East specialist Stephen Zunes, Professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of San Francisco. Professor Zunes also serves as a senior policy analyst for the Foreign Policy in Focus project of the Institute for Policy Studies, as an associate editor of Peace Review, as a contributing editor to Tikkun, and as a member of the academic advisory council of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict.
