12/08/11 – William Astore – The Scott Horton Show

by | Dec 8, 2011 | Interviews

William Astore, Professor of History and author of Hindenburg: Icon of German Militarism, discusses his article “Fighting 1% Wars: Why Our Wars of Choice May Prove Fatal;” how willy-nilly US interventions discount the chaotic and unpredictable nature of warfare, virtually guaranteeing blowback; the young Americans who regularly play video war games yet remain ignorant of actual US wars (while military drone pilots, sitting in comfy chairs in front of computer screens, resemble gamers); and how the US military has transformed into a foreign legion, detached from legitimate national security concerns and the public they supposedly protect.
