Christopher Hitchens v. Lawrence Wilkerson at the College of William & Mary

Noted journalist Christopher Hitchens squared off against College of William and Mary government professor Lawrence Wilkerson on U.S. Middle East policy Monday night.
. . .
He said that America’s current role as a power broker was unsustainable, and that the nation cannot afford a war with Iran.

Hitchens criticized what he viewed as an evasion, and replied that the commonest misconception about the modern Middle East is the persistent belief that solving the Israel-Palestine conflict would bring peace to the Middle East, elaborating that the regions difficulties ran much deeper.
