Antiwar.com editor Matt Barganier discusses the top news and opinion headlines on Antiwar.com’s main page, including “A ‘sign of weakness’ in the propaganda of war” by H.D.S. Greenway, “The Folly of More Burma Sanctions” by David Steinberg, and “Wanted: ‘Reality-based’ GOP candidates” by Gene Healy. He also discusses the conventional US excuses for losing wars; how sanctions are used for political blackmail, not to “help the people;” deciphering the intent behind US support for Syrian protesters; and why Gov. Rick Perry would make a strong (and frighteningly terrible) GOP presidential candidate.
