    Episode 280: Best of NATO in Afghanistan, With Stephen Saideman

    in Military

    Lost to many whose news sources in the USA consists of the major newspapers and the standard networks, for most of the last dozen+ years, the conflict in Afghanistan has not been a USA-Centric battle; it has been a NATO run operation.


    When the Commander of the International Security Assistance Force has been an American 4-star, the visuals can be misleading.


    For most of the last decade, American forces were dominate in only one region of Afghanistan, the east. Other NATO nations from Italy/Spain in the west, Germany in the North, and Commonwealth nations and the Dutch in the south.


    More important than the actual numbers involved, it was the Rules of Engagement, caveats, and the fickle nature of national politics that drove what effects those forces had on the ground.


    The good, the bad, and the ugly of modern coalition warfare was all in view for all in Afghanistan, but outside small circles, has yet to be fully discussed.


    Our guest for the full hour will be Stephen Saideman.


    Stephen holds the Paterson Chair in International Affairs at Carleton University’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.  He has written The Ties That Divide: Ethnic Politics, Foreign Policy and International Conflict and For Kin or Country: Xenophobia, Nationalism and War (with R. William Ayres) and NATO in Afghanistan: Fighting Together, Fighting Alone (with David Auerswald), and other work on nationalism, ethnic conflict, civil war, and civil-military relations.  Prof. Saideman spent 2001-02 on the U.S. Joint Staff working in the Strategic Planning and Policy Directorate as part of a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellowship.  He writes online at OpenCanada.org, Political Violence at a Glance, Duck of Minerva and his own site (saideman.blogspot.com).  He also tweets too much at @smsaideman.

    Hard Starboard Radio: 20-20 Iraq War Hindsight

    in Politics Conservative

    The University of Colorado-Boulder launches an "insult-reporting system" that records offenders’ Social Security numbers; Democrats get a taste of Obama’s arrogance; Obama's Middle East policy: a region in chaos and flames; and Hillary Clinton's - and Republican presidential contenders’ - cowardly, after-the-fact opposition to the Iraq War.

    Time's A'Ticken

    in Politics

    If Islam is a religion of peace then it should be held responsible for purging itself of its radical component.  Furthermore, I would hasten to say, that even those Imams that teach their constituents that it is okay to lie are evil.


    Today, we will scrutinize a prophetic Old Testament verse - Genesis 16:12.

    JIB-JAB-JEB! JEB BUSH ZIG-ZAGS ON IRAQ WAR - CAN'T DISS HIS BROTHER "W"!

    in Politics Progressive

    JIB-JAB-JEB!  JEB BUSH ZIG-ZAGS ON IRAQ WAR - CAN'T DISS HIS BROTHER "W"!


     


    Jeb Bush, when asked this week by Megyn Kelly of Fox News whether he would have invaded Iraq in 2003, knowing what we know now replied: "YES".


    .


    The Guy doesn't have the balls to say his brother - "W" - Fucked Up and brought this country into the mother of all quagmires! He literally jib-jabs on the question of whether or not his brother was right to invade Iraq in March 2003 saying only that the information at that time justified an invasion - never mind the fact that the information at that time was gerry-rigged by Vice President Dick Cheney to "create" evidence - out of whole cloth - that weapons of mass destruction were in fact present inside Iraq.
