The Human Face of Imperial Ambition
Program #CHON-KELK001. Recorded in Lexington, MA on March 22, 2003.The National Security Strategy of the United States issued in September 2002 frankly states, "The events of September 11, 2001 fundamentally changed the context for relations between the U.S. and other main centers of global power, and opened vast, new opportunities." And what are those opportunities for the people of Iraq? A U.S.-led invasion and occupation for starters. Who's next? Iran and North Korea may already by in their sights. David Barsamian considers this one of Chomsky's best interviews. Crucial for understanding the invasion of Iraq and the goals of the United States for the Middle East and the rest of the world. David also interviewed Kathy Kelly in Baghdad on the eve of the second Gulf War. Kelly passionately gave a first-hand account of the human impact of the sanctions and the impending war in Iraq.
