Live (Friday) Wisdom From Global Paradigms (Dr. Leon Hadar)

Our friend Global Paradigms has just returned from Israel with fresh insights on the geo-political situation inside the region and for the U.S. overall. In addition to having perhaps the best track record predicting Middle Eastern events that we know of dating back to at least 1991, Dr. Hadar is one of the truly most witty and funny people we have been lucky to meet in this Imperial City built upon a swamp.   Not sure if it will be on CSPAN.

“Sooner or later the United States will begin withdrawing from Iraq. Will the result be a catastrophe for U.S. interests, or are such predictions overstated? Can we expect a wider regional war, a safe haven for al Qaeda in Iraq, or a disruption to America’s oil supplies? What can the United States do to minimize the risks of withdrawal? Is diplomacy with Syria, Iran, and other nations the answer? Could Iraq benefit from political decentralization or even gerrymandering for the equitable distribution of oil resources? With the new Independent Policy Reports, A Diplomatic Road to Damascus and Do We Need to Go to War for Oil?, this timely and far-reaching Policy Forum will feature foreign policy experts Ivan Eland, Leon T. Hadar, and David R. Henderson.
