    Hassan El-Tayyab on the War in Yemen and What We’re Doing About It

    Hassan El-Tayyab on the War in Yemen and What We’re Doing About It

    Hassan El-Tayyab was back on Antiwar Radio Sunday to discuss the effort to end the war on Yemen. Scott and El-Tayyab have been advocating for the passage of two War Powers Resolutions (H.J.Res. 87 and S.J.Res. 56) in the two houses of Congress. In this interview, they discuss where things stand and what needs to get done. El-Tayyab argues that this lame-duck period in the House is the best time to get these resolutions passed.

That leads to a discussion about the possibility of negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow. McAdams argues against the idea that Republicans are about to turn against the provision of military support for Ukraine. Finally, they touch on the FTX situation.

    Tim Shorrock: The Tension with North Korea is America’s Fault

    Tim Shorrock: The Tension with North Korea is America’s Fault

    Scott talks with Tim Shorrock about the build-up to today’s tension with North Korea. Shorrock takes us back to the 1990s when the U.S. and North Korean governments were making serious headway in negotiating a formal end to the Korean war. At the time, the North Korean nuclear program was nonexistent. By the end of the decade, there were even serious talks taking place about ending the entire missile program. Then George W. Bush came in and, with the help of John Bolton, ruined everything. Scott and Shorrock talk about what went wrong, how it was almost fixed during the Trump administration and how things spiraled back out of control—again thanks largely to John Bolton.

    David Stockman on the Economy and the Misplaced Fear of China

    David Stockman on the Economy and the Misplaced Fear of China

    Scott is joined by David Stockman to talk about the economic issues facing the world today. To start, Stockman explains where the American economy stands today. He argues that the crash of 2020 represents the next stage in a 50-year evolution of the boom-bust cycle. They also touch on the labor markets, which Stockman argues are not doing as well as the news would have you believe. Next they turn to China, where Stockman says an accelerating slide back towards central planning that’s all built on an absurd level of debt should dispel the idea we’re headed for a world run by Beijing. He also debunks the myth that China has been waging an effective economic war on the U.S. since the 1990s. Instead, Stockman says America’s economic troubles are all the Fed’s fault. Lastly, Scott and Stockman take a step back and look at how the dollar is faring on a global scale. 
    Discussed on the show:
    David Stockman’s Contra Corner

    Muhammad Sahimi on the Iranian Protests and the Risk of Foreign Intervention

    Muhammad Sahimi on the Iranian Protests and the Risk of Foreign Intervention

    On Antiwar Radio this past Sunday, Scott was joined by Muhammad Sahimi to discuss the protests in Iran. Sahimi gives some background about how the brutal death of Mahsa Amini after she had been detained by Iranian morality police sparked protests led by the country’s younger generations. While both are supportive of the Iranian people in their resistance to the theocracy, Scott and Sahimi are also wary of the potential for foreign intervention to make the situation worse for everyone. They talk about which governments are already getting involved, what different factions in Iran are pushing for and examine the danger the U.S. government could turn this into another Syria. 
    Discussed on the show:
    The Murder of Mahsa Amini, Iranians’ Quest for a Democratic State, and the Role of Outside Forces” (Libertarian Institute)

Scott Horton is the man

Horton is better read than anyone on foreign policy, and has phenomenal guests on his show. This guy is one of the most important anti-war voices of the century.

Would give more stars if…

Would give more stars if Scott wasn’t always interrupting and talking over his guests. Almost intolerable.
