Permission to oppose war


Guest: Mary Hladky, writer and activist with Military Families Speak Out, talks about the crisis in our Armed Services that nobody wants to notice.

Mary talked about giving Americans permission to oppose the horror and waste of our continuing wars abroad. She has a son in the military, and if she can do it, so can you and I. 

Driving home tonight, I listened to "Fresh Air." Terry was interviewing a NY Times reporter on Mali, and the drift of the conversation was how horrible the Islamists are, and how this country must eventually do something about it. I wondered if Terry would ever do a program exposing one of our allies, like Honduras. We supported the military overthrow of Honduras' elected government, and now send military aid to the army as it murders union leaders and journalists. Somehow, bleeding heart Terry is not going to be interested in exposing murderous governments the US supports. Only in stories about African nations the US is itching to invade. Another Pentagon whore.
