As ISIS jihadists edge towards Baghdad, Iraq is on the brink of collapse. Does the Islamists' spectacular advance reflect the failure of US foreign policy? Could Iraq slip into civil war? And what would it mean for regional security? Oksana is joined by Christopher Hill, a former US Ambassador to Iraq, to delve into these issues.

Professor Christopher Hill reminds me Professor Harold Hill from Meredith Wilson’s The Music Man. It seemed that everything Professor Hill said was carefully scripted and guarded with unknown intentions. Oksana did a great job debating but there was a couple of things said that I take great exception to as an American and New Yorker I resent when points are made using 911 or war and killing is justified because of 911.

There is a free pass in blaming 911 …”Osama Bin Laden planned and executed an attack on the United States in which 3,000 people were killed…”. Where is the proof? How can he make this statement when there was no trial, no proper investigation especially when there were a series of explosions prior to the planes hitting and traces of white phosphorous on support steel which enabled the buildings to collapse and when 7 World Trade Center fell for no apparent reason?

Clea rly Prof Hill is selling regime change in Syria with Russia agreeing. Why does he say Assad should not lead Syria? What is ISIS, for all I know just another US backed force to cause chaos to enable political and financial gain. Did Saddam Hussein attack a neighbor did he liberate Kuwait, a legal province of Iraq that was stolen from foreign nations by illegally splitting it away from Iraq.
