Eric Draitser appears on WBAI 99.5 FM (New York City) to discuss the politics and geopolitics of the Iran nucelar deal, Israel’s regional agenda, and the US strategy internationally.  Draitser touches on the recent history of US-Iran relations, and how that history has led to the political and financial dynamics we see today.  He examines the role of Israel in the region, and as an integral part of the western imperial system, with particular attention also paid to Tel Aviv’s vast nuclear arsenal and the blatant hypocrisy of Netanyahu’s warmongering towards Iran.  Eric also outlines the broader geopolitical and strategic picture in terms of non-western institutions such as BRICS, Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and others, arguing that this new reality is fundamental to the US strategy vis-a-vis Iran.  All this and much more in this in-depth conversation with Nellie Bailey, co-host of Black Agenda Radio and host of Behind the News on WBAI.
