Bill Moyers and Andrew Bacevich discuss ‘neo-con armchair warriors’ and the futility of ‘endless’ war

Host Bill Moyers opened the episode reminding viewers what the Iraq War has cost us, adding “…here we are, nine years later, and once again the drumbeat sounds for war in the Middle East. This time the bull’s eye is Iran, and many of the bloodthirsty cries come from the same lusty throats that agitated a decade ago for invading Iraq. Now the neo-con armchair warriors call for hitting Iran before it builds a nuclear bomb to drop on Israel – a scenario that remains in doubt.

“Add to this potential nightmare Afghanistan, where the U.S. is still fighting more than ten years later, and where events just go from bad to worse.”
