4 reviews for The ISIS Crisis

    I’m surprised that war fevered NPR would talk to MS Napoleoni, given its atrocious record of shilling for the State Dept. and the Pentagon since the 9/11 attacks. Did a public outcry fore them to live up to their name and claims of “Independent journalism”?

    Mike states: “I would REALLY love to be able to listen to this again, but it seems crazy to have to pay for the recording of one “simple” interview.”

    I think Mike misses the point. Think of the interview cost as doing your part to support a news source that you value. Alternative Radio doesn’t have ads. The listeners are the sponsors.

    I unfortunately did not tune into the session early enough to hear all of it, but I have never heard anyone speak on the topic of the Islamic State with such knowledge, wisdom, authority, and honesty. I really wish if Ms. Napolioni were our secretary of state, if only so she could help us get out of the mess in the middle east.

    I would REALLY love to be able to listen to this again, but it seems crazy to have to pay for the recording of one “simple” interview. Yes, it was a great interview, but even an amazing interview is not nearly as much work as, say, an album. Yet, the price of access to this interview is the same. 🙁

    I recently listened on NPR to the interview with Ms Napolioni regarding the ISIS Crisis. Up til this point I couldn’t understand how ISIS was being funded and I wanted the funders brought to the forefront. Now, I understand how it works. ISIS is virtually self-sustaining. ISIS represents the poor and poverty stricken 3rd world peoples who in general have poor communication with the rest of the world. ISIS appeals to these folks “taxpayers” if you will, for support. In turn ISIS helps them, gives them things, even medical care, and the encouragement to be faithful Muslims, and most importantly that ISIS is the way out of the miseries they suffer. And clearly, through sophisticated “spin” the full cause of their suffering is….. you guessed it. ‘the un-holy world’. Ms Napolioni provides food for thoughtful discussion… even action. The problem is, the West has chosen an approach which I find best expressed by the title I have chosen for this review. Don’t miss this.
