President Obama: Stop the Wars!

Nine years after Baghdad erupted in “shock and awe,” we’re once again hearing in America the drumbeat for war in the Middle East. Now, the bull’s-eye is on Iran. But what we need more than a simple change of target is a complete change in perspective, says Andrew Bacevich, a West Point graduate and Vietnam veteran-turned-scholar who’s become one of the most perceptive observers of America’s changing role in the world.

This week, on an all-new Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers and Bacevich explore the futility of “endless” wars, and provide a reality check on the rhetoric of American exceptionalism.

  7. Col. Bacevich presents a quandary for politicians who claim positions on the political left and right, the polarity of which is false and part of the same propaganda machine for the empire. Bacevich is a conservative, retired from the officer corps, and yet an eminently candid and honest presenter of uncomfortable facts. I admire his courage in stepping away from the neocon/military consensus that dominates US foreign policy. An individual of this caliber gives hope for rational colloquy in American affairs, but I fear that his sober and measured warnings about the slide into totalitarianism will be unheeded, and that the nation has far to fall before meaningful change will occur.

  8. Thank you so much for making me aware of Andrew Bacevich. I am so glad to know he is out there sharing the common sense, rational and reasoned thinking reflected in his views.

    I recommended your Blog to Professor Richard Falk, International Legal Scholar, in his Blog. While I don’t know for sure, I would hope Richard Falk knows Andrew personally. If they don’t, I hope my comment inspires the Professor to make 1st contact.

    Why not get the Law and Politics Right in Iran?
