      • Yes Lo. Great update, RT on overdrive! Superb content. The crimes of empire, confronting the war machine.

        Senor Hedges really does lay out the radical feast with consummate brilliance. So astute….I find his intellectual capacity and penetrating focus quite awesome. A truly great mind.

      • Key point raised by CH about the Jordanian pilot incident, around 14:39ff Sabah Alnasseri then underscores the fact of state terror as a violent abuse of government since the invasion of Iraq….expands on the critical context of the al-Maliki army suppression of peaceful protests, and continues to explain the militarisation of revolution in Syria; as war becomes endemic, so “justification” becomes “contingent,” a critical formulation to grasp in my opinion.

        This is a profoundly enlightening conversation. (I think we could further benefit from a really impartial forensic account of the historical relationship of nascent Zionism to imperialist ambitions, over the past century or more; including the controversial connections to ascendant national socialism in Germany, US financial interests and the role of the Vatican on British-Israel allegiances.)

        The analysis here is particularly fine; and as SA suggest, we may witness the prospect of emergent possibilities as young minds, from various cultural contexts, begin to recognise the mutual benefits of common regional goals, as the necessary means to overcome localised government corruption and proxy state terrorism.

Please add to the conversation.
