Welcome to the Voices of Liberty Weekly Podcast with Dr. Ron Paul and Ron Paul Channel Managing Editor Tiffany Rider. Every Monday we review the events of the weekend that will drive the news this week.
This weekly podcast is new content we’ve developed for the expansion of the Ron Paul Channel. Check back soon for details.
Today we discuss what is happening in Iraq. While the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues its ruthless battle to take control of Iraq, the Iraqi government is reporting that its own air force has killed hundreds of ISIS militants.
At least 50 U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army personnel have arrived in Baghdad to protect our embassy there. And we know some embassy staffers are being relocated. We ask Dr. Paul, what is at stake if we continue to send military personnel to Baghdad?
According to Secretary of State John Kerry, our federal government is open to military cooperation with Iran if Iranians could help quell the situation in Iraq. We ask Dr. Paul, what do you make of the Obama Administration’s willingness to work with Iran over Iraq?
And, in an interview with Yahoo News, Kerry said drone strikes “may well” be an option. We ask Dr. Paul, do you believe targeted killings and drone attacks by the U.S. on Iraq could be the start of the next world war?
Thanks for tuning in and be sure to come back every Monday!
