Noted peace activist Kathy Kelly discusses the reality of the U.S.'s recent wars. This week's topics include how poverty in Afghanistan aids the Taliban, empire vs. national security, the US-sponsored Israeli attack on Gaza (2008-2009), M.L. King's opposition to the Vietnam War, and the sufferings of soldiers.

Kelly and some colleagues had "embedded" themselves--not among soldiers but among the common people living in war zones. She gives first-hand accounts of what she saw.
Kelly is co-founder of Voices for Creative Nonviolence (www.vcnv.org).

She spoke in Binghamton, NY, in November 2009. Recorded by (and thanks to) Wilton Vought for Essential Dissent -- www.essentialdissent.blogspot.com . Video of the entire talk may be found there.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "false promises") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
