Decade War

"Obama in Vietghanistan," by George Latuff (2009)

In brief

March 2013 saw the tenth anniversity of the US-led war against Iraq. So this seemed like a good time to air selections from Decade War--Skidmark Bob's 2011 audio collage on the horrors and futility of the US's recent wars.

We'll hear an engaging mix of Hollywood film clips, TV news, new and old music--and a good British documentary about the experiences of soldiers, in a doomed outpost in Afghanistan, slowly being wiped out by the Taliban.

Musical highlights include a stunning update of Country Joe's "Feels Like I'm Fixin' to Die"--plus original (1965) and punk-rock versions of "Eve of Destruction."

Bob's original audio extravaganza is here shortened, edited, and (after some deft censoring) suitable for radio broadcast.
