Antiwar Radio: Robert A. Pape

Robert A. Pape, coauthor of Cutting the Fuse: The Explosion of Global Suicide Terrorism and How to Stop It, discusses the evidence that (still) shows suicide attacks are much more closely related to foreign military occupations than religious extremism, why U.S. efforts to date have been more effective at provoking terrorism than preventing it, the inverse correlation between troop levels and suicide attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan and how Pape’s thesis is finally catching on in media and government circles.
