UN Security Council May Arm Libyan Unity Gov’t to Fight ISIS

The UN Security Council today agreed on a plan to "train and equip" an army loyal to the Libyan "Government of National Accord" after US Secretary of State John Kerry made a strong case for the remilitarization of the conflict. The UN-created "Government of National Accord" may be supported by western governments, but it has virtually no support in Libya. It's unelected "presidential council" will be the real power behind the "unity" government, but so unpopular is the group that it had to be delivered to Libya from Tunisia via warship. Ron Paul Institute Executive Director Daniel McAdams is interviewed on RT America with his take on today's dramatic move...

Brussels - Unrelated to Interventionist Foreign Policy?

What is the meaning of the Brussels bombings? "Experts" will make endless self-serving suggestions about how to better fight terrorism -- these "solutions" will always include more jobs for these "experts." Meanwhile, none of the elites will for a minute consider the deadly combination of violent Western intervention in the Middle East and an open door "refugee" policy in the EU. Why do none of the experts see blowback, interventionism, sanctions, and neocons as a cause of hatred in the region? RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins the Scott Horton show to peel back the layers of nonsense that cloud the official story of the "war on terror." Listen to the program here.
