Our leaders talk a great deal about diplomacy, but they also talk about "projecting" American power.
And often, that has meant going to war. The Institute for Policy Studies formed more than 50 years ago to promote justice and find alternatives to war.
IPS fellow Phyllis Bennis tracks international relations across the Middle East; she joins us to talk about potential solutions to the US/Iran and Israel/Palestine relationships.
Bennis speaks in Eugene on this very subject on March 6th.
