This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. ~Matthew 15:8

A Peace to End all Peace, A Century of Intervention in the Mideast

Posted: 2015-02-27

Published on Mar 12, 2012

In order to understand the United States' current involvement in the Middle East, it is essential to understand the origins of Western intervention in the region during World War I. During World War I, Britain and France conducted secret negotiations to carve up the Middle East into new nation states under their control. The resulting Sykes Picot treaty suppressed Arab self-determination and inaugurated a century of western intervention in the region with the United States later taking over the leading role. Our guest is Professor David Fromkin, the author of "A Peace to End All Peace, The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East". 

Correction: A photo incorrectly identifies Kermit Roosevelt, Sr., rather than Kermit Roosevelt, Jr. as organizer of the 1953 Iran Coup.
