On COI #173, Dave DeCamp – News Editor at Antiwar.com – returns to the show to discuss recent news about China and Iran. Upon taking office, Biden had a golden opportunity to undo a key Trump blunder and return to the Iran nuclear agreement. However, Biden delayed action and is now struggling to make any progress with a new president in Tehran. Israel also remains a perpetual thorn in the side of diplomacy in the region, Dave and Kyle explain.  The US continues to use Taiwan to provoke China. Washington's increased diplomatic ties with the island, as well as weapons sales, have pushed the two even further from Beijing's decades-old 'One China' policy. The US is also increasing its military presence in the region with the ‘AUKUS' agreement with the UK and Australia, a pact designed to counter China in the Indo-Pacific.

On COI #166, Scott Spaulding – host of Why I'm Antiwar – returns to the show for the third installment of the 'Villains of the Afghan War' series. Scott breaks down the role of David Kilcullen, the godfather of counterinsurgency under the Bush administration. Kilcullen found himself in a high-ranking position that he exploited to push his own COIN policy. While his approach failed and the Afghan War ended in disaster, Kilcullen is still named as an expert and continues to profit off the military-industrial complex.  Scott discusses USAID official James Derleth's part in the Afghan nation-building effort. Derleth forced American soldiers to ask Afghan citizens questions and fill out forms. The information was useless – but worse, it put US soldiers in danger. He is now a professor who recently spoke at the prestigious West Point military academy.  Scott also takes aim at Paul Sommers and Ryan Brewster. While working for the USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service, the two headed a project that sought to use American soldiers to teach Afghans new farming techniques. However, the Afghans already knew how to farm and the US war had simply made it impossible to grow the fruit trees Sommers planned. In the end, Sommers and Brewster netted no improvement for average Afghans and racked up an expensive tab for American taxpayers in the process.

This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott talked with Dave DeCamp. DeCamp gives an update on Afghanistan where the Taliban are attempting to form a government. Both Scott and DeCamp agree that the Taliban are likely to face difficulties as they try to govern the country, especially if they continue to only appoint Pashtun men to positions of power. Both point to the retaliatory drone strike that killed civilians in Kabul as a preview of what “over the horizon” operations will look like if Biden is serious about continuing them. Lastly, DeCamp provides an update on Syria where insiders appear to be happy with the status quo. And both Scott and DeCamp point to northern Syria as a perfect example of Washington's hypocrisy on “terrorist safe-havens.”  Discussed on the show: Bill Roggio at the Long War Journal Emily Horne's statement about Taliban cooperation  “Tens of thousands of civilians likely killed by US in ‘Forever Wars'” (Airwars.org) “The Other Afghan Women” (New Yorker) “Looser rules, more civilian deaths, a Taliban takeover: Inside America's failed Afghan drone campaign” (Connecting Vets) Dave DeCamp is the assistant news editor of Antiwar.com.

In this episode we interview Ray Luc Levasseur. During his time underground Levasseur was a purported member of the United Freedom Front, and the Sam Melville Jonathan Jackson Unit. Prior to that Levasseur organized in several above ground formations, including the Southern Student Organizing Committee (SSOC), Vietnam Veterans Against The War, and SCAR. We talk to Ray about his early life, and the influence of his experience in Vietnam on the development of anti-imperialist politics and commitments.  He also shares his first incarcerated organizing experiences in Tennessee. And we have brief discussions of his time in SSOC, Vietnam Veterans Against The War, and SCAR. After that we discuss Ray's time underground, and the claimed activities the Sam Melville Jonathan Jackson Unit and the United Freedom Front.  Specifically he discusses IBM's involvement in Apartheid, and the targeting of the military and prison industrial complexes by those underground groups.  We end with a discussion of Ray's time in Marion and the refusal there by Levasseur and other political prisoners to build weapons for the federal government. Ray also shares thoughts on his experiences during 13 years of solitary confinement at Marion and later at ADX. And discusses why small acts of generosity and care on the outside can mean a great deal to people experiencing extreme repression.  He leaves the discussion with several ways folks can get involved in supporting political prisoners. We will include links in the show notes for folks who want to get involved in that necessary work. One quick urgent note, political prisoner David Gilbert goes before the parole board this month. He needs letters of support. They must be submitted by Wednesday September 8th at 6pm Eastern Time. Please go to friendsofdavidgilbert.org to get full details on the process and do that for him.  And just a quick reminder that if you like what we do and want to support our ability to continue to do it.

As the 20-year war in Afghanistan comes to a disastrous conclusion, even more questions have emerged as to why America was there in the first place. And why they didn't leave sooner. Scott Horton is the author of several books on the Afghan war and runs the wildly popular website Antiwar.com. He breaks down the mistakes that were made, not just with the botched exit, but from the initial invasion just weeks after 9/11. The repercussions of the longest war in American history will be felt for decades to come both inside and outside of the United States, but the loss of goodwill and respect from other nations is something impossible to quantify. America lost more than just the war, it lost what little moral superiority it claimed to have.

On this edition of Parallax Views, there's been a political blame game at play since President Joe Biden announced the U.S. withdrawal of its military forces from Afghanistan. The last of the U.S. forces officially left on August 30th, 2021. What now? What does this mean for U.S. foreign policy going forward? Will it open up a debate about U.S. foreign policy since 9/11? And what are the lessons that need to be learned from the U.S. military adventure in Afghanistan? We have two interviews delving into those questions on this edition of the program. First up, Ret. Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis of Defense Priorities joins us to discuss his whistleblowing on the Afghanistan War and the surge that took place on President Obama's watch. We talk about the Afghanistan Papers and how the public was systemically misled (or lied to) about the on-the-ground reality in Afghanistan. Also, we find out Lt. Col. Davis' response to criticisms that the withdrawal will hurt Afghans, that this opens us up to new terrorist threats, and calls to end the Forever Wars are the province of dangerous "isolationists". Also, we discuss how figures like Leon Panetta and H.R. McMaster are "addicted to war" as outlined in Lt. Col Davis' commentary at The Guardian. Lt. Col. Davis argues that we need to reintroduce the diplomatic toolkit and reorient U.S. foreign policy. We also manage to delve into the the Kabul airport attack and the U.S. cooperation with the Taliban against the threat of ISIS-K during the evacuation process. Then, Ted Galen Carpenter of the CATO Institute, who regularly writes for Antiwar.Com and the National Interest, joins us for further discussion about Afghanistan and, more broadly, the need for a revamp of U.S. foreign policy. As supplements to this conversation you may want to read Carpenter's latest Antiwar.Com piece "Blame-Shifting: The Political Elites Response to the Messy Afghan Withdrawal" and "The Cynical Campaign To Scapegoat Joe Biden for the Afghanistan Debacle" as well as his article at the National Interest entitled "U.S. Credibility Not Seriously Damaged by Afghanistan Failure".

RUSH: You know, I've got a story here in the Stack about Hollywood leftists, led by Ed Asner and Mike Farrell. Now, they're a couple of relics, but they are the leaders of the anti-war movement in Hollywood, and they're still influencing young actors and actresses, and they are admitting they don't like this at all. They don't like this Syria business. They don't like what's going on in Libya. They don't like Obama's foreign policy at all. But they will not go public with it, and Asner admitted why. They don't want to be seen as “anti-black.” Bingo again. It's the same reason the Republicans are not standing up and stopping this or opposing it. Nobody wants to be seen as anti-black, and so opposing Obama is not seen as opposing Obama. It is racism. It is perceived as being against black people. Because of the nature of this nation's past in terms of slavery, whenever a black person reaches a position of power we've got to relax all the standards. https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2013/09/09/anti_war_relic_ed_asner_admits_race_shields_obama_from_leftist_criticism/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

On this edition of Parallax Views, we continue our deep dive into Afghanistan and the war waged by U.S. forces in Afghanistan over the past 20+ years. This time Prof. Muhammad Sahimi, an astute commentator on Iran, joins me to discuss his latest Antiwar.Com article "The Fake Image of ‘Democratic' Afghanistan Made by the US Collapses With the Taliban Victory". Why did the U.S. military adventure in Afghanistan fail and does the involvement of the U.S. involvement in the country actually stretch back much farther in history than the immediate aftermath of 9/11? Prof. Sahimi discusses the birth of the Mujahadeen and the Taliban, the religious and diverse tribal nature of Afghanistan, what the withdrawal entails for Iran and the possibility that the withdrawal is part of a move against Iran by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, the long history of issues between Iran and Afghanistan (including dispute over water distribution), the Persian-speaking populations in Afghanistan, Massoud and the Northern Alliance, the role of ultraconservative Sunni Hanafi Islam in Afghanistan, and much, much more.

On COI #150 the great Scott Horton returns to the show to discuss the collapse of America's sockpuppet government in Kabul. Scott explains how he seemed to be one of the only Afghan War analysts to correctly predict how quickly – and mostly bloodlessly – the Afghan government would collapse. He talks about the Taliban's gains in recent years and how they were primed to consolidate their power.  With the Taliban now in control of almost all of Afghanistan, some Afghans – and nearly all of the corporate media – believe the Taliban will return to their same harsh style of rule from the pre-9/11 era. However, Scott explains there are some reasons to be hopeful that the Taliban's rule may be less brutal – although still horrible. Since taking power the Taliban has made an effort to create the appearance that women will be accepted into society and the government. The group has said they are not seeking reprisals and Kabul, at the moment, remains calm under their rule.  In response to the withdrawal, the hawks' favorite trope has been to claim the Taliban takeover makes the world more dangerous for Americans. Scott debunks the myth that the Taliban offers ‘safe haven' to groups that want to murder Americans. However, less than a year ago, the US was backing the Taliban with drone strikes against ISIS-K, with soldiers even dubbing themselves the “Taliban's air force.” Reports claiming an al-Qaeda presence in Afghanistan are nothing more than hearsay.  A second tactic being used by the corporate press is to spin the rise of the Taliban into a threat to American hegemony over Russia and China. Scott dismantles the argument that Chinese influence in Afghanistan is a concern for Americans. Scott also discussed the issue of Uyghur jihadists who take refuge in Afghanistan. Kyle rounds out the show by asking Scott if he thinks America's war in Afghanistan is over. Scott explains that the US does not have the ability to redeploy occupation forces to the country. The US would also struggle to carry out special forces missions because of Afghanistan's isolated location, though Scott says the US may try to continue CIA operations to undermine the Taliban.  Scott Horton is editorial director of Antiwar.com, director of the Libertarian Institute, host of Antiwar Radio on Pacifica, 90.7 FM KPFK in Los Angeles, California and podcasts the Scott Horton Show from ScottHorton.org. He's the author of the 2021 book Enough Already: Time to End the War on Terrorism, the 2017 book, Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan, and the editor of the 2019 book, The Great Ron Paul: The Scott Horton Show Interviews 2004–2019.
