Why Is The US a Horrible Ally? (Pt. 2) | Faisal Saeed Al-Mutar | INTERNATIONAL | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Faisal Saeed Al-Mutar (human rights activist) about how the United States was a more reliable and predictable ally when it was fighting Communism and the Cold War, and how the US is no longer a predictable ally to Iraq or the Middle East. He suggests that even countries like Russia and China would be more reliable allies to the Middle East and Iraq. Political polarization in the US and presidents that alternate between interventionist and non-interventionist has made US foreign policy unpredictable for the entire Middle East region.

What is the current state of the international political economy? Is US foreign policy damaging international politics? We are more aware than ever of international news stories and the effect of our foreign affairs, but do we truly understand the perspectives of our global neighbors?
