Today I’m welcoming Jeremy Kuzmarov back to Wider View. Jeremy has taught in history in colleges, written 4 books including “Obama's Unending Wars: Fronting the Foreign Policy of the Permanent Warfare State” with Glen Ford, and “The Russians Are Coming, Again: The First Cold War as Tragedy, the Second as Farce” with John Marciano, and was recently named Managing Editor of Covert Action Magazine. We talk about the magazine and its history, current US interventions including Belarus, and the upcoming election.
I keep getting asked that question. It does seem unbelievable that so many Americans would have voted for this con man and probably will again. In this episode we listen to the voices of some voters in Michigan recorded in 2016 and I try to make sense of this in some way. Have I succeeded? You tell me.
