Associate Director Matthew Hoh discusses waking up to the true nature of the military in light of witnessing America’s unwinnable proxy wars first hand.
The more the U.S. tries to rely solely on military solutions to maintain control, the deeper the fractures between the U.S. and the majority of the world.
Supplying weapons and munitions to enable Israel to carry out its ethnic cleansing campaign in Gaza is a violation of U.S. and international laws.
The killing, detaining and silencing of journalists is a tool used by governments worldwide, including the US and its allies, to push war and militarized foreign policies that otherwise would be exposed as immoral, illegal and counter-productive by a free press.
The Biden Administration’s hidden and secret wars like many of Kissinger’s, serve no practical American interests and make a mockery of purported American values. Kissinger is now dead, like millions of his victims, but his ruinous legacy remains.
The success of the now extended truce and prisoner exchange shows that diplomacy works where military force does not.
Rather than utilizing our relationship with Israel to demand they conduct a hostage exchange and begin good faith negotiations to end the blockade and occupation of Palestine, the Biden Administration spent the last six weeks aiding and abetting what more and more people and major institutions around the world are decrying as a genocide.
Hoh shares stories from his time in Iraq to illuminate the visible and invisible war zone wounds that tear apart veteran and civilian alike.
