Myths & Realities of the Middle East #2

08/21/2004

This week’s program is a continuation of our conversation with Middle East history professor Dr. Steve Carol, PhD.  Today’s conversation revolves around the history of the June, 1967 Arab/Israeli war and the issue of who started it.  This is important because most of the issues being disputed today revolve around this one question.

But first John’s extended boralogue examines the economic promises of Socialist Party (D) and Socialist Party (R) and the fact neither is dealing in the world of reality.  They are both making promises that are impossible to keep and Professor Larry Kotlikoff, co-author of “The Coming Generational Storm,” and former member of the President’s Council of Economic advisors, shows why. This is followed by an examination of the proposal to abolish the IRS and other stories.
