Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Helle Dale (The Heritage Foundation)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt is joined by Helle to debate military action against Iran. Helle accuses Matt of attacking strawmen, while Matt argues that neocons have been hot for bombing Iran for a long time. They debate the tension between attacking Iran and supporting Iranian democracy, and whether hawks have a misplaced faith in the power of military solutions. Matt lays out his preferred policy: engagement, not appeasement.
