Andrew Bacevich on China’s Rise as Global Superpower & Decline of U.S. Empire After Iraq Invasion

Democracy Now! – Mar 22, 2023


Andrew Bacevich is a historian, co-founder of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and a retired Army colonel. He joins us for a wide-ranging conversation about China’s 12-point peace plan for Ukraine, how Beijing is taking on a more assertive role in world affairs, and the 20th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. There is “no question” that the 2003 invasion was a war crime, says Bacevich, and he condemns its supporters’ “unwillingness to grapple” with their culpability.
