Antiwar Radio: Eric Margolis

This interview is excerpted from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles radio broadcast of September 20. The entire show (1 hour segment) can be heard here.

Eric Margolis, foreign correspondent and author of War at the Top of the World and American Raj, discusses how the Afghan election failed to confer any legitimacy to the government and was a total waste of time and money, why the Afghan Army’s minimal Pashtun representation bodes ill for future security and cohesion, the incredible hubris of the “government in a box” strategy for pacifying Marja, the stealthy U.S. occupation of Pakistan and how the increased violence in Kashmir complicates U.S. regional strategy.
