Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the justifications for US involvement in conflicts around the globe have become increasingly strained. While most Americans do not ask themselves why we are supporting conflicts in Libya and Syria while ignoring equally undemocratic and often brutal regimes in other countries. 

The set up for war in Iran is not questioned in the corporate media, which begins with the assumption that the US has the right to impose murderous economic sanctions on Iran for a bomb that it has never been shown to be building, under the assumption that it is necessary to protect a US ally that has hundreds of nuclear weapons which are unmonitored by international agencies.

In the past, when politicians were expected to justify military intervention, the quaint concept of the "just" war was developed. Pastor Mary Sue Evers talks about the just war theory and whether it applies to modern conflicts in a unipolar world where the US is the only superpower.


This show was broadcast on March 9 on the Star Com Radio network.
