Talking Foreign Policy with Michael Scharf
“Talking Foreign Policy”
Topics up for discussion are:
(1) Predator Drones
(2) The International Criminal Court (and the controversy concerning al Bashir, Sief Gadaffi, and the Kenya Six)
(3) Responding to Iranian Nukes (including the recent assassinations of Iranian Nuclear scientists).
International policy issues are so prominent in a day-to-day news cycle but often can be difficult to grasp, Professor Scharf lined up a few colleagues known for their ability to discuss complex foreign policy topics in an easy-to-digest manner.
They will offer listeners a broad expanse of views, as their political beliefs range across the entire spectrum. In addition, the participants will strive to make the show casual and sometimes humorous, even when discussing serious topics.
