In the clip below Newsweek editor Fareed Zakaria debates neoconservative radical Norman Podhoretz on Iran policy. Podhoretz is a vocal advocate for bombing Iran. Typical of most Iran-war promoters, Podhoretz mechanically repeated the tired analogies of comparing Iran to Nazi Germany and conjured “mad mullah” denotations—that the Iranian regime is run by irrational religious fanatics who cannot be contained, leaving starting a third simultaneous war by the US as the only rational solution.
Podhoretz is foreign policy adviser to Rudy Giuliani. Watch Zakaria’s response below. (Video via TPM’s Veracifier)
