10/4/19 Andrew Cockburn on the America’s Military-Industrial Swamp

Andrew Cockburn talks about what he calls the legal corruption of the U.S. government and various lobbying industries. Whether it’s arms manufacturers, steel, farmers, or health insurance, practically every major industry in the U.S.—and some industries abroad—works with politicians to get favors and special treatment. Joe and Hunter Biden’s scandal with Ukrainian energy companies is just the most recent example, but is certainly not unique. Unfortunately partisan loyalty clouds people’s judgment and makes them accept these behaviors as normal when “their team” does it.

10/4/19 Adam Wunische on the Real Costs of the War in Afghanistan

Adam Wunische joins the show to discuss his work in assessing the true costs of the war in Afghanistan and the future of the American military there. He and Scott remind us that most metrics used to describe the costs of war assume that you can put a value on the loss of human lives, the physical and mental suffering of soldiers who do come home, and all the other subtle effects felt at home by the citizens of a nation at war. Clearly that’s not true, and it probably explains why the country has turned so strongly against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, including the veterans of these wars themselves.

Adam Wunische is a researcher for the Quincy Institute, an instructor at George Washington University’s Security Policy Studies program, and a PhD candidate at Boston College. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army, completing two deployments to Afghanistan. Follow him on Twitter @AdamWunische.

9/28/19 Sheldon Richman on the Real Story of Israel and Palestine

Scott interviews Sheldon Richman about his new book, Coming to Palestine, a collection of Richman’s essays on the founding of Israel. Richman was raised in a Jewish household to believe that Israel’s cause was just and worthy of support. He now believes that the narrative he got as a child—the one that most people get—is practically the exact opposite of how things really stand in almost every regard. His new book tells the real story.

9/30/19 Nasser Arrabyee on the Houthi Attack on Saudi Forces

Nasser Arrabyee is back with an important update from Yemen, where Houthi forces are now claiming to have captured thousands of Saudi soldiers in a battle in August. They likely view this as leverage in a possible peace negotiation, but Scott fears that it could also provoke President Trump into supporting America’s allies, the Saudis, in an even more violent retribution than what is already being carried out.

Mark Perry discusses some of the disasters of America’s foreign policy for the last 20 years, particularly U.S. support for Saudi Arabia in their war in Yemen and repeated cases of empowering Iran by starting or supporting ill-advised conflicts that end up making Iran look strong. Perry says there’s no way to wrap up our involvement in the region; America simply needs to get out now and stop perpetrating this injustice altogether.
