Learning the Lessons of Bloods and Crips in the Middle East

When will anyone on the Right give a vision for strategic interests in the Middle East?

In this episode, we focus on our backwards policies in the Middle East by prioritizing urban renewal in untenable Islamic tribal wars while ignoring the real national security threats that confront our homeland. What is going on in Syria with the endless Sunni-Shia fighting is a reflection of the population, and there is nothing we can do to fix the situation. Why is nobody focusing on the chemical warfare on our own border being launched against our people in the form of fentanyl?

Using analogies of gang violence (and sports!), we demonstrate the foolishness of the false dichotomies presented to us on foreign policy and military intervention.

We also discuss the foolish GOP effort to distract from its spending binge with a ceremonial balanced budget amendment this week. Also, CBO just came out with a budget report. It’s now clear that interest payments on the debt will surpass military spending in just five years.
