I would give so much, not to have felt the need to do this show.
On past shows, in light of the well-publicized rapes of women in India, I’d advised the Critical Discourse audience that I would be covering this very sensitive subject.
This was back in January, and to be honest, I figured that I might be able to avoid this wrenching and arduous task. .
Then, something happened, that just shook me to my very core. A crime, a sin, so unspeakable, that affected females and males, demand justice; remedy and redress, reciprocity and righteous retaliation.
Last week in New Delhi, a 5 year-old girl died, from a heart attack, after she was raped by a 35-year old man, who is now in custody, charged with sexual assault; I don’t know if Indian jurisprudence would deem, that a murder charge could be applied, as well.
In the nation of Afghanistan, there is a cultural more’, this time with boys, that will also shock and stun you, making you wonder, “What kind of world are we living in”? What goes on in the minds of these and any males, who would do commit such a heinous act? What kind of “culture” kindles these perversions?
On Critical Discourse, we will discuss these issues, and try to make some “sense” of it all.

Author Miyoko Hikiji grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, joined the Army and later the Iowa National Guard. She was deployed to Iraq in 2003-4 and afterward graduated from ISU with a degree in journalism. “All I Could Be: My Story as a Woman Warrior in Iraq” is a female soldier’s perspective of combat, but also a love story. Miyoko speaks about the cost of war, in terms of human life–two of her buddies died there and two were permanently disabled. She also talks also about PTSD, MST (military sexual trauma) and suicide for returning veterans transitioning back into civilian life.
“We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.”
The War on Iraq was one of the most brutal events in modern history. Sold to the people on the basis of lies about non-existent WMDs and Saddam Hussein’s non-existent ties to non-existent al Qaeda, the above quote from a Bush administration official encapsulates the pathological delusion of grandeur that is US government foreign policy.
On this week’s show we’ll be marking the 10th anniversary of ‘Shock and Awe’ by comparing American fantasy with reality and examining the disastrous choices American policy-makers have taken as the economy implodes. 9/11 gave the warmongers their “new Pearl Harbor.” Couched in lofty rhetoric about spreading democracy and liberating the world from tyrannical dictators, America’s glorious self-image stands in stark contrast to the brutal reality of ten years of bloody mayhem that has left Iraq and its people ripped apart.
Hubris and pathology writ large… it’s a tale as old as time: from Athens and Rome to the British Empire and today’s US-managed Global Pathocracy. To paraphrase Orwell, in times of monumental deceit, rhetoric is valued over truth. And the reality today’s ‘philosopher-kings’ have created is about to get a very rude awakening.
Iran is clearly a global threat and a genocidal force to be reckoned with. Iran's active role in the Islamic genocidal war against Israel is more well-known and so is Iran's desire to destroy Israel, America, and the free world, as well as Iran's constant suppression of dissident. But Iran is not only exterming freedom-loving people in their own country. Iran and their proxies in Iraq [especially the Iranian forces in the new Iraqi Government] are also actively exterminating Iranian dissidents in Iraq in a place known as Camp Ashraf [a base for the MEK]. Also, I'll discuss Iran's hypcrosiy on the MEK. While I'm no fan of the MEK's leadership, I think that Iran is hypocritical in denouncing the MEK as a terrorist cult; considering that Iran is an active terrorist nation promoting their own genocidal ideology. Also, I'll discuss why delisting the MEK was the right decision. Just as America and the west supported Stalin, a brutal Communist dictator, who killed millions of people [perhaps even more than Hitler] against Hitler cause they had no choice; even with Eastern Europe falling under Soviet Communist tyranny. If supporting a brutal dictator like Stalin is a necessity to stop Hitler; with Iran taking the role of the new Nazi Germany and killing Americans in Iraq [and also killing Iranian dissidents and Iraqis, who don't support Iran], supporting the people in Ashraf [the people in Ashraf moved to a place known as Camp Liberty] is clearly a necessity. That means that supporting the MEK is clearly a necessity, especially when it comes to keeping Iran out of Iraq. If Iran gets Iraq, then it'll be far more dangerous.
Tune in, as I discuss Iran and their proxy Government in Iraq in exterminating freedom-loving Iranian refugees in Iraq and Iran's hypocritical crybabying of the MEK, which denounced violence in 2001; even as Iran continues to be the major global terrorist threat that it is.
How many of you think about the war in Afghanistan? Does it even seem like there is a war goin on? Aside from the occasional story on a service member who has been killed or tragically injured there is not much being said about a war that has been going on for almost 11 years. As a veteran I have my own feelings about this and all wars and tonight is your opportunity to voice your feelings about this issue. I encourage all veterans, family members and spouses of veterans to please call and share your feelings or stories about how you have been affected by the war. War, What is it good for, on Rap Sessions Radion this Thurs., March 21, 2013.

We hear from MidEast scholars Jennifer Loewenstein, Francis A. Boyle, and Conn Hallinan. First these news updates on raq, Afghanistan and Gaza: The web page ideabeats.org has an archive of Bush audio and video on the Iraq War. It soon becomes obvious that the entire Bush administration was lying its way into an invasion, war, and occupation of Iraq, and th
