Takes on the World: Chris Davidson on Qatar, Saudis and ISIS as US asset

Date Uploaded: 2017-06-28 13:53:42.0
Dr. Davidson, author of Shadow Wars, the Secret Struggle for the Middle East (One World, UK) sorts out the details of the Saudi-Qatar conflict that appears to have been given the green light by Trump and Kushner in Riyadh. He explains that Saudis object to Qatar support for Muslim Brotherhood and its attacks on the KSA on Qatar-owned Al Jazeera's Arab broadcasts which are very different in content than its English language edition and is more like an Arabic version of Fox News.

In noting the forces now taking sides in that conflict, with Iran and Turkey supporting Qatar and supplying it with food and necessities to break the Saudi blockade, he compares it to the situation in Europe before the outbreak of World War One.

He speaks about the US support for Al Qaeda and the extremist jihadist groups going back to the attacks on the Russians in Afghanistan and explains how such groups, including ISIS have served US interests by fighting more nationalistic, more radical forces which he describes in great detail in his book.

He notes how the actual numbers of bombing raids by the US-led coalition against ISIS don't compare with previous campaigns such as in Serbia and sees that against ISIS as more of a formality than an attempt to eliminate it since its continued existence makes it a useful bogeyman.



Takes on the World: Jeff Blankfort: News/Op:US War on Syria, Electing Yeltsin in �...

Blankfort begins with comment on role of Trump and Kushner in Saudi government shuffle and Saudi blockade of Qatar. He then notes that with the shooting down of a Syrian jet by US fighter in Syria that the US has launched war on Syria without any legal justification which, of course, the US has never cared about. He notes that initial steps in the war were taken by Obama when he first sent US soldiers there and set up a US base.

He notes that one day after Si Hersh exposed US lies about alleged Syrian sarin gas attack in April, White House press spokesman Spicer announced that Syria was planning another such attack and warned Assad of the heavy consequences if Syria does so.

He provides highlights of Hersh's article in Germany's Die Welt which he couldn't get published in US., which indicates that Trump and his generals knew it was a lie when he ordered the cruise missile strike on the Syrian base.

He then speaks of additional US troops sent to Syria in March and refusal of Pentagon to make the number of troops there public but quotes general in charge as being ready to fight.

In making a case that making war and invading other countries is what the US has been doing since its founding and notes list published in Congressional Record in 1969 of more than 250 incidents since 1776, citing one event in 1824 when US sailors burned a Nicaraguan town to the ground to avenge an insult to their captain.

He notes that the unwillingness of Americans to support new wars after Vietnam was considered an illness, Vietnam syndrome, which was exorcised by first Gulf War. Now, without a draft, Americans are indifferent to what its government is doing and cites absence of any mention of US wars in call for the June 10-11 People's Summit in Chicago.

He concludes with report of US interference in Russia's presidential election of 1996 which was well publicized in the US at the time but the media has seem to have forgotten and the role played in that election by components of the National Endowment for Democracy who were back again in Ukraine before the 2014 coup.

Sea Change Radio: Barret Werk: Bamboo Bikes

Date Uploaded: 2017-06-27 15:51:58.0
“I guess the grass is itself a child, the produced babe of the vegetation.” Perhaps Walt Whitman had this week’s guests on Sea Change Radio in mind when he wrote those words, as we talk to two entrepreneurs who, in very different ways, are using nature’s bounty for innovative purposes. First, we speak to Hawaiian-based bicycle maker, Barret Werk, who uses bamboo, the strongest grass around, to make his bike frames. Then, we revisit host Alex Wise‘s discussion with Bay Area-based sea forager extraordinaire, Kirk Lombard.
