167. The American Empire: Arrogant, Ignorant, Hypocritical

A podcast with Eric Margolis on the US and its wars.

We are headed for more war. In Afghanistan, Eric Margolis sees a weak Obama being sucked into tribal politics that puts us on the wrong side of the Pashtun majority. In Pakistan, he sees an extremely unwise expansion to the south; it is Cambodia déjà vu. Neocon hawks push for seizure of Pakistani atomic weapons. India, too, wants Pakistan defanged. Eric also discusses the outrageous hypocrisy of the biggest violator of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty – the US – saying yes to nukes for Israel and India, while saying no to nukes for Muslims.
