The Responsibility to Protect - R2P

<R2P> A month ago, I visited Penn State, thanks to Sophia McClennen. The topic on the table was the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) doctrine, which was the fig leaf for the West's attempt to give ideological cover for its wars after the Iraq debacle. The talk goes over the terrain of R2P, but falls heavily on Libya and Syria. You can listen to the talk here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MiYazFZYpI.

Before the talk, I spoke to two very smart undergraduate students, who had read my book - The Death of the Nation and the Future of the Arab Revolution - and asked me pointed questions. The interview is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyGR-2w46u0.
