Against Empire Roundtable w/ Sameera Khan, Robbie Martin, & Marlon Ettinger
On this edition of Parallax Views, a roundtable discussion with foreign policy analyst Sameera Khan, Media Roots' Robbie Martin, and freelance journalism Marlon Ettinger on American hegemony and the antiwar/anti-imperialist movement. Sameera, Robbie, Marlon, and I begin by discussing the field of Democratic Presidential candidates in regards to their views on foreign policy. Although I myself am supportive of the Sanders campaign, our guests offer a more critical view of all of the candidates. From there we delve into a number of different topics including and especially the state of the antiwar movement. In particular we note the ways in which the paleoconservative, anti-interventionist right seems to have captured the antiwar movement. Sameera offers her critique of Tulsi Gabbard as well as discussing matters related to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, India, and China. Robbie gives insights into the role neoconservatism has played in paving the current tumultuous course of American foreign policy. Marlon chimes in with his usual astute observations about matters related to the politics of the current zeitgeist as they relate to America's foreign adventures.
