Targeting Iran

Program #CHON183. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on February 10, 2006.

Audio sample:

Hypocrisy is criticizing others for behavior which one engages in as well, a double standard. Imperial powers of course take the cake when it comes to hypocrisy. Not content with its "mission accomplished" success in Iraq, the Bush administration is now aiming its guns at Iran. An original member of the "axis of evil," Iran with the world's fourth largest oil reserves, has long been coveted by the neocons. The U.S., with a large occupation army in Iraq, and apparently with no sense of irony, warns Iran to stop meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq. Corporate media do not even comment on this blatant contradiction. And the American people? Subjected to a steady stream of free press propaganda, the Gallup poll reports, "Americans say Iran is their greatest enemy."


Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky, by any measure, has led a most extraordinary life. In one index he is ranked as the eighth most cited person in history, right up there with Aristotle, Shakespeare, Marx, Plato and Freud. The legendary MIT professor practically invented modern linguistics. In addition to his pioneering work in that field he has been a leading voice for peace and social justice for many decades. Chris Hedges says he is “America’s greatest intellectual” who “makes the powerful, as well as their liberal apologists, deeply uncomfortable.” He is Institute Professor (emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT and Laureate Professor of Linguistics and Haury Chair in the Program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona. At 90, he still gives lectures all over the world. He is the author of scores of books, including Propaganda & the Public Mind, How the World WorksPower Systems and Global Discontents with David Barsamian.
