Please check out my interview with Scott Horton of Antiwar radio: http://antiwar.com/ and the Scott Horton Show: http://scotthorton.org/  On this episode Scott obliterates the notion that the U.S. should police the world, that any of our wars are just, and that anything good at all comes from our war machine.  This was a lively conversation.  I know you’ll enjoy it!

I recently had an extremely interesting chat with Ward Churchill, author and former professor at the University of Colorado. Churchill became well-known after his controversial article on the 9/11 attacks and his view that this was a case of chickens coming home to roost. I agreed with him on many things and disagreed on quite a few. He is certainly not our typical guest, but definitely one of our more interesting ones. Enjoy!

The American experience in Vietnam once had a real bite to it. Second only to the Civil War in the way it affected the American psyche. These two wars go hand in hand in that respect, for they were both firsts when it came to seeing the blood, and guts, and bones of dead Americans in living color. After the Civil War we sure kept waging war on the Native Americans, but after Vietnam we actually stopped the killing for a minute, took a pause, and actually reflected on what we had done. (more…)

Agree or disagree with Dr. Ron Paul, you have to admire his gigantic sack. Watch this clip from the 2008 republican debate in SC. Most politicians would wilt here. Imagine the guts it takes to tell an auditorium full of blood-thirsty, war-mongering neo-cons that our foreign policy contributed to 9/11 and that we should not be at war in Iraq.

Does anyone remember the saying we used to collectively memorialize the victims of the cowardly attacks of September 11, 2001? “We will never forget.” With four words we made a vow to those we lost on that day that they would never be far from our minds.

Something just didn’t feel right about it from the very start. Invading Afghanistan, yes, after September 11, 2001 the invasion of that country seemed very rational. Even though it was obvious immediately that we went about it in a way that would guarantee the escape of Osama Bin Laden, at least we were after someone who had claimed responsibility for the worst attack ever on modern America. Then Iraq, and it just didn’t feel right. Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden hated each other. They hated each other worse than they hated America and that’s saying something. There was no way they were in cahoots, and yet we the American people allowed our Federal Government to sell us such a stupid story.
