10/5/18 Danny Sjursen on Blowback in the Mideast

by | Oct 8, 2018 | Interviews

Major Danny Sjursen comes back on the show to talk about the blowback from America’s many wars in the Middle East. He explains a process with which listeners of this show will no doubt be familiar, by which the U.S. sets itself up for future wars by arming and training a generation of young rebels to help fight the current wars. All too often, the veterans on America’s side of the war then become either extremists or a part of the next brutal regime that takes the place of the old one—justification for more war either way.

Discussed on the show:
