Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good Afternoon, Welcome to Radioactivity on WMNF. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up, a former soldier and a conservative Catholic who is a staunch critic of the Iraq War and the easy willingness of the U.S. to go to war since World War II.
But first two listener comments about yesterdayâ€™s program discussing labor issues with several local union activists.
Our guest today, Andrew Bacevich is a conservative; he graduated from West Point, served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam and in Southeast Asia until 1992. He retired as a lieutenant colonel and is now a professor of history at Boston University. Heâ€™s written for conservative publications as well as liberal publications.
In his new book, The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalsim, he says the nationâ€™s involvement in what he calls endless wars has been a catastrophe for democracy.
