Robert Naiman


Robert Naiman, Policy Director at Just Foreign Policy, discusses Obama’s commendable follow-through on reducing troop levels in Iraq and (at least rhetorically) standing by the 2011 withdrawal date, the huge increase in troop numbers and casualties in Afghanistan since the Bush administration, the end of finite wars as U.S. foreign policy remains on a permanent war footing and the much-exaggerated death of the antiwar movement.

  1. As long as commenatators such as Mr Naiman continue to accept the long discredited official 9/11 conspiracy theory about 19 Muslim hijackers flying planes into buildings etc etc the longer it is going to be before there is a credible analysis of what really happened, who really did it, their obvious motives (just look at the consequences and the answer to the universal question: cui bono?) and why the american war machine will go on constructing these "terror" attacks to justify the policies they want to pursue anyway.
    One might have thought that as US governments have been behaving this way since at least 1846 when Polk staged an attack to justify stealing one third of Mexico, and multiple examples since including in your lifetime Scott the Gulf of Tonkin, that Americans would cotton on to what their imperialist minded masters were really up to.
    Alas, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it, or more accurately the mistakes are repeated. So America will blunder on its murderous way until eventually the empire will crumble as all have crumbled before.

  2. Thank you for some other magnificent article. The place else could anybody get that type of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m on the look for such info.
