Presenting an arresting analysis of U.S. foreign policy and the war on terror, this original recording delivers a provocative lecture on the nation’s past and present use of force. Demonstrating how imperial powers have historically invented fantastic reasons to sell their wars to their people, this powerful examination illustrates the attack on Iraq as not just a mistake but also a crime, proposing that the criminals behind it should be brought to justice. The discourse focuses on the present U.S. disregard for the Geneva Conventions and the dangerous and immoral use of “anticipatory self-defense” to undermine the United Nations Charter and international law.
In spite of this dark assessment, Chomsky maintains hope for democracy at home and abroad by inspiring listeners to shake off our political malaise and work to build a more egalitarian future for all.
