Regime Change Re-examined

This week on Hold Your Fire!, Rob Malley and guest host Richard Atwood talk with Phil Gordon about his new book Losing the Long Game: The False Promise of Regime Change in the Middle East, in which he argues that U.S.-led operations to replace Middle Eastern governments do not end well.

Episode 14: Regime Change Re-examined

In this week’s episode of Hold Your Fire!, Rob Malley and guest host Richard Atwood take on the U.S. “forever wars” with Phil Gordon, a former adviser to President Barack Obama and author of the acclaimed book Losing the Long Game: The False Promise of Regime Change in the Middle East (St. Martin's Press, October 2020). Rob also addresses one of the most pressing foreign policy decisions the incoming Biden administration will face: should the U.S. simply go back to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal or should it aim for a more ambitious agreement with Tehran?
