The Future Dangers of U.S. Foreign Policy
For Beyond 50's "History" talks, watch a video interview with Historian Mark Weber. He'll take a look at the vast and enduring US military role in the world, reviewing the record of American intervention around the globe for more than a century. You'll also learn about the pretexts used by political leaders to justify the campaigns - in the Spanish-American war of 1898, our first "imperial outreach, as well as in World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, and most recently in Iraq and Afghanistan. He'll show how this pattern is rooted in the American national character.
