Robert Stark Interviews Keith Preston about the Iran Deal, Russia’s role in the Mideast, & the US Elections

I listened to this whole thing. I agreed with every single thing he said. If you really want to try to figure out what is going on the world in domestic politics and US foreign policy, this podcast is a must listen. I also think that everything he says here would be compatible with my view of the Alternative Left

Topics include:

The Iran Deal and the myths about it.
Why the US Establishment is divided over the Iran deal.
US Jews Shifting Their Views on Israel and Iran.
Why the neoconservatives oppose an independent Iran that has emerged as the leader of the Resistance Bloc.
How the US has supported Islamic fundamentalist against secular regimes in the Middle East.
Why the US is concerned over and wants to prevent Russia from having influence in Mideast.
The refugee crisis in Europe and how it’s largely a product of Western intervention in the Middle East.
Why the Gulf states are not letting Syrian refugees in and how they bear much of the guilt over the crisis in Syria.
Sanders v. Klein on Immigration: The Old Left Against the Adolescent Left.
Bernie Sanders and his Enemies to the Left.
How the plutocracy and Democratic establishment co-opted the Cultural Left.
Trump’s incoherent foreign policy.
How Donald Trump and Ross Perot are similar in the sense that their wealth enables them to be outspoken, and they are in favor of Economic nationalism over supply side economics.
How ironically a Trump versus Sanders race could lead to an even more polarized America, because those candidates represent positions closer to those of their supporters as opposed to those of special interests.

    I’d like to see a Trump/Sanders ticket. They have more in common with each other than with their supposed parties.
