Various analysis by different political positions have tried to analyze the recent events in the Middle East. Of these analysis, the liberal approaches have put the main emphasis on the political effects of events like invasion of Iraq or Afghanistan. What has been missing in these discussions is a Marxist analysis and outlook on explaining the overall direction of these policies and their relationship to the domestic policies in the US. Today, we will go over some of the issues with respect to the subject of oil and the economic as well as political crisis inherent in the current capitalist system. We have conducted an interview with Dr CYRUS BINA the Professor of Economics and management at the University of Minnesota.
