Between Iraq and a hard place: USA to end ‘forever’ wars?

RT published this video item, entitled “Between Iraq and a hard place: USA to end ‘forever’ wars?” – below is their description.

20 years and four presidents later, America’s endless wars in the Middle East are coming to an end as the US withdraws from Iraq and Afghanistan. Has Biden managed to do the impossible, or is his administration simply rebranding its efforts in the Middle East?

This week RT’s No BS podcast with Ben Swann asks, is America finally done with its ‘forever wars’? This week’s guests include Iraq veteran and activist Adam Kokesh, professor of philosophy, public policy, and governance at the University of Washington Michael Blake, and lecturer in international relations at Salahaddin University Kamaran Palani.
