Your Call: America's war for the greater Middle East

Sep 12, 2016

On the September 13th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with military historian Andrew Bacevich about his new book America's War for the Greater Middle East.

He says that perpetuating the war for the greater Middle East is not enhancing American freedom and security. If anything, it is having opposite effect. What will it take to break the cycle of America’s wars in the Middle East? Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10 am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest:

Andrew Bacevich, retired professor of international relations and history at Boston University and author of a dozen books including America’s War for the Greater Middle East: A Military History
