Title

Ford Hall Forum: Dr. Yaron Brook on Democracy vs. Victory: Why the Forward Strategy of Freedom Had to Fail [audio recording]

Date

22 October 2006

Description

After Sept. 11th, the Bush administration declared that we must bring freedom to the Middle Eastern nations that threaten us; thus, the Forward Strategy of Freedom. By establishing democracies in key Muslim countries, starting with Afghanistan and Iraq, we would spur a revolution in the rest of the Muslim world—a revolution that would bring free, pro-Western, anti-terrorist governments to power. But the strategy has failed. The Muslim world has grown more militant, radical leaders are being elected to power, and Islamic totalitarian groups like Hamas and Hezbollah are on the rise. Dr. Yaron Brook discusses the inherent flaws of the Forward Strategy of Freedom and explore what should replace it.
