Chalmers Johnson on: The BLOWBACK SYNDROME: Oil Wars and Overreach

The BLOWBACK SYNDROME: Oil Wars and Overreach

Uploaded on Jan 22, 2008
Chalmers Johnson, Professor Emeritus UC San Diego and author of Blowback, Sorrows of Empire and Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic and Ret. Naval Officer, talks about the U.S. 'military-petroleum complex,' the over-extension of the
American military, nuclear proliferation, and the decline of Washington's credibility abroad.  America is going for the oil in Georgia and plans to build a pipeline through the middle east.  They need to control the middle east countries to do this, necessitating the need for bases and wars.

Author of Blowback, The Sorrows of Empire, and Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic, Chalmers Johnson has literally written the book on the concept of American hegemony. A former naval officer and consultant to the C.I.A., he now serves as professor emeritus of UC San Diego. As
co-founder and president of the Japan Policy Research Institute, Mr. Johnson also continues to promote public education about Asia's role in the international community. In this exclusive interview, you will find out why the practice of empire building is, by no means, a thing of the past. As the United States continues to expand its military force around the globe, the consequences are being suffered by each and every one of us. (Written by Richard Castro)
