6/14/19 Interview #5,000: The Life and Times of Gareth Porter

For Scott’s 5,000th interview, 317-time guest Gareth Porter shares some of his life story and how he got into national security journalism in the first place. Porter recounts his years in graduate school studying Southeast Asian politics, including a year spent in Vietnam during the war, and the intervening decades before he finally embraced journalism as his passion and vocation. Porter started writing about Bush’s and Cheney’s wars in the early 2000s, shortly before Scott started interviewing him. Since then Porter has become one of the very best voices in the anti-war movement and a favorite guest of the Scott Horton Show.

6/14/19 Tom Eddlem on the Anti-Muslim Propaganda Used to Promote America’s Wars

Scott talks to Tom Eddlem about the late Will Griggs’ new book, No Quarter, now out on paperback and Kindle. Eddlem also discusses the anti-Muslim propaganda spread by those who want to make war in the Middle East more palatable to Americans. Eddlem says that most people who promote an anti-Muslim (or anti-immigrant) narrative aren’t being deliberately subversive or evil, but they use statistics that are misleading or only true in a limited context in service of a cause they believe is good for America’s safety. But the result is that those who are deliberately spreading this misinformation have plenty of willing supporters for their cause.

6/14/19 Bob Murphy on the Economics of Climate Change

Bob Murphy joins the show to discuss his work on the economics of climate change. He explains that even according to the science cited by the UN and the Obama administration, the economic costs of the proposed plans to slow down global warming would be wildly more expensive than the costs associated with the warming itself. The more reasonable plans, like a modest carbon tax, on the other hand, would allow for up to 3.5 degrees celsius of warming, which is much more than most of the scientists think is tolerable. Most activists don’t want to address any of these economic questions because it’s highly inconvenient for their narrative.

Bob Murphy is an economist with the Institute for Energy Research, a research fellow with the Independent Institute, and a senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

6/14/19 Eric Margolis on Gaza, India, and Iran

Eric Margolis shares stories from his work helping rescue zoo animals from Gaza, where Israeli occupation has forced the Palestinians living there to squalor and the brink of starvation. The promise of a Palestinian state appears to be totally forgotten, says Margolis, and now the Trump administration is supporting the Israeli government in taking even more territory from the Palestinians. Margolis also talks about the risk of ethnic cleansing in India and the possibility of war with Iran.

6/14/19 Peter Ford on the Jihadis Left in Syria

Scott talks to Peter Ford about the latest in Syria and Iraq. America and the allied “coalition” have made the same mistake over and over again in the Middle East, says Ford, and President Trump seems to be walking the same path; he claims one day that he wants to pull U.S. troops out of Syria and Afghanistan, and then changes his mind on the next. Ford is also concerned about worsening tensions with Iran, but finds it credible that they really could have been behind the recent attacks on Japanese tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

Discussed on the show:

Peter Ford is a retired British diplomat who was ambassador to Bahrain from 1999–2003 and to Syria from 2003–2006. He is the co-chairman of the British Syrian Society.

6/14/19 Jason Ditz on the Gulf of Oman Tanker Attacks

Antiwar.com news editor Jason Ditz discusses recent Japanese tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman, which the Trump administration is claiming were perpetrated by Iran. Trump officials say they have solid evidence for this claim, but nothing has been released except for a grainy video supposedly showing Iranians interfering with a tanker after the attack. Ditz points out that the supposed motive for the attack makes little sense, since Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe is visiting Iran right now. It seems more likely that someone might have staged such an attack in order to sabotage the negotiations.
