Description

@pplswar On July 28, 2015, Ezra Klein of Vox sat down with Bernie Sanders to ask him some deep, penetrating questions. This video is an excerpt of the foreign policy Q&A. 0:00 -- Do you consider yourself a realist, a democratic socialist, in terms of your approach to foreign policy? What school of thought do you subscribe to? 2:15 -- U.S-Iran nuclear deal. 3:37 -- Should America have intervened military to stop genocide in Rwanda? 4:48 -- Do you view yourself as a Zionist (i.e. pro-Israel)? 5:55 -- Does China's rise mean America loses? Is it a zero-sum game (meaning because they win, we lose)? 6:18 -- Global warming as a national security issue. 7:05 -- Is it possible to price carbon emissions internationally? 8:02 -- Do we need to price or tax carbon emissions? 8:48 -- How do you get developing, industrializing countries like India and China on board with capping carbon emissions? 10:19 -- How do you think the average American sees the rise of China as an economic power? 11:49 -- Changing U.S-China trade policies may close factories in China, so that makes it seem like a zero-sum game? 12:49 -- Do you think the creation of the Euro is a mistake? (Thoughts on the Greek debt crisis?)
