The Paradoxes of Trump’s Russia Strategy
Mosul Mourns Its Minaret, Sort Of
Rasha Al Aqeedi
Good evening, listeners! On this week’s episode, host Richard Aldous speaks with Damir Marusic about the Russia policy cobbled together by Trump’s cabinet before speaking with Rasha Al Aqeedi about the legacy of a destroyed minaret in Mosul.
First, Damir Marusic, Executive Editor of The American Interest, speaks with Richard about how Donald Trump’s cabinet has produced something of a sound approach to Russia in spite of the president himself.
Then, Rasha Al Aqeedi, a fellow at Al Mesbar Studies and Research Center in Dubai and a native of Mosul, Iraq, returns to the show to discuss how an historic minaret in Mosul, destroyed by the Islamic State, is “now being remembered for what it never was.”
