Given yesterday’s intense circumstances, you’ll receive two messages from me today: this and my final blog from the Walk to Paris for Climate Action, including the events that unfolded on the streets of Paris yesterday and my first-ever taste of pepper spray. Yum.
I hope you’ll tune-in to today’s Fallon Forum, either live at 11:00 a.m. or later via podcast. Dr. Charles Goldman again hosts the show, and writes:
“We’ll have Dr. Dennis Goldford, Professor of Political Science at Drake University and a sought-after political commentator, with us on the Fallon Forum to discuss whether the seeming rise of candidates Cruz and Rubio represents a ‘breakout moment’ in the Republican Presidential primary. We will also look at how the war on ISIS is likely to influence the 2016 Presidential election and its eventual winner.
“In the second half of Monday’s Forum, despite the almost universal blathering from Presidential candidates of both parties about the US leading a coalition into Syria and elsewhere, the American electorate had best get used to the idea that any solution to the ISIS problem is going to involve both Russia and Iran. We’ll take a look at the arc of America’s relationship with Iran, from the 1980’s trans-shipping of American weapons to Iran through Israel (yes, Israel) under the Reagan administration, through the first Persian Gulf War it engendered, right up to our present problems with ISIS.”
Hear the Fallon Forum live 11:00-12:00 noon CST on KDLF 1260 AM (Des Moines) and online. Call (515) 528-8122 to add your voice to the conversation. The program re-broadcasts Wednesday on KHO
Thanks! – Ed Fallon
