11/22/19 Danny Sjursen on the Failures of America’s War in Iraq

Danny Sjursen talks about the ways his experience in Iraq convinced him of the futility of that war, allowing him to see things that the generals and the war planners often could not. Sjursen says that not all officers paid attention to the local situation or to the people their units were supposed to be working with. Failure to do so led to far greater casualties, among both American soldiers and Iraqi civilians. Sadly the generals and politicians still seem unable or unwilling to learn the lessons of the past, and thus will be doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

Discussed on the show:

Danny Sjursen is a retired U.S. army major and former history instructor at West Point. He writes regularly for TomDispatch.com and he’s the author of “Ghost Riders of Baghdad: Soldiers, Civilians, and the Myth of the Surge.” Follow him on Twitter @SkepticalVet.

11/22/19 Philip Weiss on Israel-Palestine and Zionist Politics in America

Philip Weiss discusses the latest in Israeli politics, where incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recently been indicted on corruption charges. Neither Netanyahu nor his main opponent, Benny Gantz, have yet been able to form a government, and Weiss thinks this revelation may cause some of Netanyahu’s supporters in Parliament to jump ship. In America, Scott and Weiss agree that both democrats and republicans are horrible on recognizing the truth about Israel and Palestine, because there are so many political and electoral incentives, including a wealthy Jewish-American lobby and a large population of American liberal zionists. Weiss is hopeful that some of the more radical democratic presidential candidates will be willing to take a stand for Palestinian rights and thereby inform the public of what’s really going on.

Discussed on the show:

  • “‘Parts of Gaza sent back to Stone Age’: Gantz videos laud his IDF bona fides” (The Times of Israel)

11/22/19 Donald Bolduc on Limiting US Military Intervention

Donald Bolduc shares some of his experience from his time overseas with the U.S. army during the terror wars. He spells out the fact that although America’s mission is ostensibly to suppress groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, we often end up supporting the very same people in one place that are the enemy elsewhere. This happened in Mali, fighting those we had supported in the regime change war in Libya in 2011, and in Syria, where America sided with Al-Qaeda-affiliated rebels in the rebellion against Assad. Bolduc stresses the importance of getting U.S. troops out of these theaters of war, because the sooner America stops interfering, the sooner the kind of blowback we’ve seen constantly for the last two decades will end.

Donald C. Bolduc is a retired U.S. Army Brigadier General and former commander of U.S. special operations in Africa. He served ten tours in Afghanistan before deciding to run for senate in New Hampshire. Follow his campaign at donbolduc.com.

11/22/19 Peter Van Buren on the Lasting Damage of Russiagate

Peter Van Buren rehashes some of the details behind the surveillance of the Trump campaign through FISA warrants on Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, which originally opened up the “Russiagate” investigation into Trump. Now the same anti-Trump plot has expanded into the current Ukraine hearings. Van Buren urges us to look beyond the partisan politics of 2019 and think about the effect this kind of conflict could have on the future of American life.

Discussed on the show:

Peter Van Buren worked for 24 years at the Department of State including a year in Iraq. He is the author of We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People and the novel Hooper’s War. He is now a contributing editor at The American Conservative magazine.

11/21/19 David Stockman on the Phony ‘Ukrainegate’ Witch Hunt

David Stockman discusses everything that’s going on with Ukraine and President Trump right now, which he says is nothing more than a shallow ploy to oust the president and to gin up fear around the general threat of Ukrainian and Russian power. Stockman reminds us that compared to America Russia has a tiny GDP and a weak military, posing no credible threat to the U.S. They would be perfectly happy to get along with us, he says, if it weren’t for a deliberate effort to expand NATO right up to their borders. America should show the same willingness to cooperate with them.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Ukraine on Fire (2016)” (IMDb)
  • “Democrats Empower a Pack of Paranoid Neocon Morons” (Antiwar.com Original)
  • “The Ukrainian Influence Peddling Rings – A Microcosm of How Imperial Washington Rolls” (Antiwar.com Original)

David Stockman is the ultimate Washington insider turned iconoclast. He began his career in Washington as a young man and quickly rose through the ranks of the Republican Party to become the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. After leaving the White House, Stockman had a 20-year career on Wall Street. He is the author of Trumped!, The Triumph of Politics, and his history of the financial crisis, The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America.

11/18/19 Ted Snider on the Bolivian Coup America’s Always Wanted

Scott interviews Ted Snider about his recent article, “Finally Got Him,” which explores the details behind the coup in Bolivia. Although it’s being held up as a triumph of democracy, Snider says this is obviously a coup, just like recent cases in Venezuela, Brazil, Ukraine, and many others. “Democracy”, in fact, pretty much just means whatever political outcome is favorable to the U.S. government. And for some reason, the puppets in the mainstream media are perfectly happy not to question any aspect of the standard narrative or do any real investigative reporting.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Finally Got Him: The Bolivian Coup” (Antiwar.com Original)
  • “Massacre in Cochabamba: Anti-Indigenous Violence Escalates as Mass Protests Denounce Coup in Bolivia” (Democracy Now)
