Episode details

We celebrate our last episode of 2021 with Robert Wright — author of  The Moral Animal , BloggingheadsTV podcaster, and publisher of the popular Nonzero newsletter.  We discuss the continued U.S. military operations in Syria, the spiraling tensions between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine, neocons, and humanitarian interventionists. A virtual holiday grab bag!  In the first segment, Kelley & Dan talk about Talon Anvil, the secret U.S. military kill team responsible for thousands of bombings and untold number of civilian deaths in Syria from 2014-2019, according to a new New York Times report.

Kelley and Dan will be taking off the next two weeks for the holidays and will be back with a new episode Jan 7. Thank you for your continued support and all the best for a Happy and Healthy New Year!
