A week ago Trump tweeted about leaving Syria. Now the US and other western nations stand at the brink of a new war in Syria, one that threatens much greater conflict with Russia. Daniel McAdams from the Ron Paul Institute joins Jeff Deist to discuss whether John Bolton is now running US foreign policy, what Bibi Netanyahu told Trump on the phone, and whether cooler heads in the administration are thinking about second and third order effects. Have we learned anything at all from Libya and Iraq? And, how do interventionists maintain wars with no popular support beyond the Beltway?
