draitserAs the conclusion of my conversation with Eric Draitser, we spoke about the events over the past decade in the Middle East and how empire has expanded in the historic Levant. This includes a discussion of the destruction of Libya and the Arab Spring, particularly what it meant for the region and how the events should be interpreted in the history books.

It has been my hope in creating this series that peace protestors might better grasp the events that define the geopolitical arena so to stand in solidarity with their fellows across the globe while posing a resistance to the continued destruction of the world by our imperial footprint. Only be shrinking this footprint and reducing the Pentagon budget can we have a serious discussion about the possibility of an alternative political economy in our lifetimes.
