RT America -- January 4, 2018

US counterinsurgency operations continue to fuel resistance in Afghanistan
The Taliban control more of Afghanistan today than they have at any time since the US invasion in 2001, Nicholas J. Davis, author of ‘Blood on our Hands: The American Invasion and Destruction of Iraq,’ tells RT America’s Manila Chan.

Is the US meddling in Iran’s street protests?
Iran officially accused the United States of meddling in the country’s affairs, saying Washington has been “inciting Iranians to engage in disruptive acts.” This comes as violent demonstrations begin to die down, RT America’s Anya Parampil explains.

Is US hostility towards Iran driven by Netanyahu and Israel lobby?
Is it fair to accuse Iran of terrorism when the United States is currently bombing seven countries, operating torture sites, and has killed more than 20 million people since WWII, Robert Fantina, journalist and author of the book "Empire, Racism, and Genocide: A History of US Foreign Policy," tells RT America’s Manila Chan.
