THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 173: A History of US Interventions in the Middle East w/ Matthew Petti
Over the last two decades, there has been an intensification of instability in the Middle East as a result of military intervention as well as economic warfare launched not only by the United States but also powerful regional actors. This week we speak to Matthew Petti of the Quincy Institute about a variety of dynamics shaping the region. What does the withdrawal from Afghanistan mean for US influence?
What is the future of the Iran nuclear deal? And how have interventions from the US and regional players exacerbated tensions and chaos in the Middle East and Islamic World?
