from Gilad Atzmon
The American foreign policy is at cross-roads. For decades, Washington has advertised equality and human rights in international circles. But, at times, the U.S. has contradicted its own alleged values, philosophy and democratic approach.
Some argue that America's self-interest supersedes the spread of democracy worldwide. However, there are those who say Washington's approach serves neither the national interest of Americans, nor does it promote equality and democracy.
So, the question arises: who then benefits from current American policies?
Press TV's U.S. Desk discussed the issue with Gilad Atzmon who is a political activist, musician and author in London.

On Saturday, January 29, 2011, at noon, an “emergency demonstration” was staged in front of the Egyptian Embassy, in Washington, D.C. It was organized by the ANSWER Coalition and a host of other activist groups in the area. According to the ANSWER Coalition’s press release, the purpose of the rally was to “show solidarity with the Egyptian people” in their struggle to overthrow the “dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak,” who has received for decades “$2 billion a year” in U.S. aid to prop up his “corrupt regime.” This video features Brian Becker, National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition.
