This fortnight in New World Notes, radio programs #196-197, December 6 & 13, 2011
the Sorrows of War
Noted peace activist Kathy Kelly discusses the reality of the U.S.'s recent wars. Kelly and some colleagues had "embedded" themselves--not among soldiers but among the common people living in war zones. She gives first-hand accounts of what she saw and heard in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Gaza. She details the massive suffering of innocent people caused by the U.S.'s military adventures.
Here is a side of war that you won't find revealed in the mainstream media.
Kelly also speaks eloquently of the high cost of these unnecessary wars to the American people.
She delivered this talk in Binghamton, New York, in November 2009.
Kathy Kelly is co-founder of Voices for Creative Nonviolence (http://www.vcnv.org/).
Recorded by (and thanks to) Wilton Vought for Essential Dissent -- http://www.essentialdissent.blogspot.com/ . Video of the entire talk may be found there.
