U.S. Mideast Policy: Motives and Consequences
Program #CHON030. Recorded in Los Angeles, CA on January 27, 1988.
Chomsky examines the roots and underlying impulses that inform, guide and direct U.S. policies in the Middle East. Within the regional context, he focuses on U.S. relations with Iran and Israel. He explores the background of the Iran/contra scandal and documents that secret arms shipments were going to Iran via Israel since the early 1980s. He shows how and why the U.S. has created and manipulated Israel as a "strategic asset" and why both countries have opposed and blocked a peace settlement with the Palestinians. Chomsky's perspectives are singular, his arguments cogent and his conclusions startling and provocative.
