Sinopse

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the worlds countries, and yet, most Americans dont know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a warrior caste whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesnt see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny and Henri, two Army combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.

  • Censorship, mind control, biological warfare, and the Korean War w/ Dr. Jeffrey Kaye – Ep 111

    28/12/2021 Duração: 01h12min

    For anyone who follows this podcast, it’s never a surprise when you hear the words “I don’t know.”  Not due to a gap in knowledge of any kind or the question being one of an odd variety, but because it simply lives behind this giant wall of silence called the U.S. classification system.  The Korean War has been over since 1953 and yet, we still don’t know the full extent of U.S. culpability in using biological warfare against North Korean / Chinese forces.  Censorship is a different matter.  For a country ostensibly on the side of “free speech”, the United States often uses censorship to shore up their narratives among the American people.     Dr. Jeffrey Kaye joins the podcast to discuss his most recent CounterPunch piece, “CIA, MKULTRA and the Cover-up of U.S. Germ Warfare in the Korean War.”   “In this article, CIA mind-control programs are linked to experiments on returning Korean War POWs. Also revealed is the extent to which CIA officials from Projects Bluebird, Artichoke and MKULTRA collaborated with

  • Reign of Terror w/ Spencer Ackerman – Ep 109

    06/12/2021 Duração: 58min

    Spencer Ackerman joins the podcast to discuss his new book “REIGN OF TERROR: How The 9/11 Era Destabilized America and Produced Trump.”  We discuss the presence of war crimes in the post 9/11 era as features, not aberrations, of American foreign policy, the search for the “service” in military service, and America’s ongoing love affair with using military answers to solve political questions.  Enjoy!!!
