"NATO's Assault On Syria"
with Webster Griffin Tarpley.
Foreign journalists trip to Syria; religions and ethnicities; Syrian cities of Damascus, Qara, Homs and its Zahra neighborhood and hospital, Baniyas, Tartus, and Beirut, Lebanon; Russian Naval Base; death squads/snipers/ambushes and kidnapping; Syrian Army; foreign intervention.
"Guns & Butter" investigates the relationships among capitalism, militarism and politics. Maintaining a radical perspective in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, "Guns & Butter: The Economics of Politics" reports on who wins and who loses when the economic resources of civil society are diverted toward global corporatization, war, and the furtherance of a national security state.
