André Vltchek on Western terrorism, Ajamu Baraka on "humanitarian intervention"

My next two shows feature two of our leading public intellectuals, discussing two timely topics, "Western terrorism" and "humanitarian intervention". . . which amount to the same thing these days, the latter being a euphemism for the former. You might even say that "humanitarian intervention" is an oxymoron like "jumbo shrimp" and "military intelligence."

Dr. Baraka is a political science professor who has served on the board of many of the world's leading human rights organizations. I interviewed him last April on “Operation Ghetto Storm”: The New Face of U.S. Fascism and The assassination of Dr. King and the suppression of the anti-war and peace perspectives.

    It’s funny how the terms “terrorism” or “mass murder” are only applied when the group or individual carrying out deadly acts of violence have an agenda that isn’t tied to money or profit.
