    "Beyond Afghanistan: Patriotic Dissent Against U.S. Militarism”

    with Maj. Danny Sjursen

Music by David Rovics 

Maj. Sjursen will begin with the current hot topic, to an extent, of the 
relatively recent Afghanistan withdrawal and the failure of the war 
effort there. He will explain the scope and scale of ongoing U.S. 
military operations – a new "American Way of War" waged in the shadows 
as a nearly invisible campaign of abstraction. It pivots towards an 
acknowledgment that war is now waged for profit, profiting a select 
few–now loaded with blood money; blood, however, that's on all of our hands.

*• Maj. Danny Sjursen* is a retired U.S. Army officer, the director of 
the Eisenhower Media Network (EMN), a senior fellow at the Center for 
International Policy (CIP), contributing editor at Antiwar.com, and 
co-hosts the podcast “Fortress on a Hill.” His work has appeared in the 
NY Times, LA Times, The Nation, The Hill, Salon, The American 
Conservative, and Mother Jones, among other publications. He served 
combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and taught history at West Point. 
He is the author of three books, Ghostriders of Baghdad: Soldiers, 
Civilians, and the Myth of the Surge, Patriotic Dissent: America in the 
Age of Endless War, and most recently A True History of the United 
States. Follow him on Twitter @SkepticalVet.
