Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up: In the midst of rising acrimony, weâ€™ll talk about the prospects for a U.S. attack on Iran.
But first some listener comments. Listeners called in with these comments on John McCainâ€™s military record, Michael Parentiâ€™s speech last Thursday on these airwaves and yesterdayâ€™s interview about the values Thomas Jefferson believed in.
Earlier today officials from Iran and the United States traded tough words as indications increased that the U.S. and Iran are heading toward a confrontation.
Our guest is historian and journalist Gareth Porter, who has written extensively about the rising tensions between Iran and the U.S.
Porter is the author of Perils of Dominance, and his writings can be found at Anti-war.com.
