"An American Anthem: What's Behind Murdering Soldiers in Afghanistan, Racist Vigilante Killers in Florida and the Blind Arrogance of White Privilege on Stage"

Kathleen Barry, Professor Emerita/author, takes on the assertion that Sgt. Bales was simply a deranged soldier who went nuts and slaughtered 17 people, mainly women and children, in Afghanistan. Barry argues instead that this kind of sociopathic behavior is rooted in the training, mission and purpose of the US military.

We discuss some 'dear colleague' letters (dealing with Gaza) being circulated by US Representatives, we talk about the surge in Afghanistan, and upcoming Haitian elections. Note: Bob will be in Palestine from Dec 27, so we plan to bring coverage from there during his trip.

Shorter show than usual, weighing in at just over 22 minutes. Hope it might still be of use to some of you. Also - if you do make use of it, I'd appreciate being told (though notice isn't required for non-commercial broadcast use).

NATO Forces slaughter Afghan farmers; nothing confirms your Taliban affiliation like a NATO bullet in your head. Labor joins Likud in the Israeli Knesset, forming the most right-wing government from the broadest political spectrum in Israel's short, violent history. Evidence mounts that the IDF's rabbinate urged soldiers to cleanse the Holy Land of non-Jews, contradicting Israel's claim that every effort was made to prevent civilian causalities during Operation Cast Lead, the recent, horrific, collective assault on the Palestinian people of Gaza.

Seeing Red Radio

A member of the editorial board of the International Socialist Review, Sherry Wolf spoke at Marxism Today 2007 in Melbourne, Australia and we feature excerpts of her talk, “The Case for Revolution”. Also, we cover the plight of Afghan children forced to survive on garbage heaps, Afghani reconstruction monies pilfered by corrupt aid agencies, and the continuing efforts to boycott, divest and sanction the Apartheid regime of Israel. Finally, Noam Chomsky gives his take on Obama’s pro-Israel hawk appointments and his unprecedented “obsequiousness” to AIPAC.
