On the radio again
I did another radio interview yesterday with Scott Horton of Antiwar Radio, this time on the brutal and tragic violence in Mexico that has followed the government's decision a couple of years ago to make the drug war literal rather than a metaphor. More than 5,000 killed last year according to a State Dept. official I talked with today, and probably more beheadings than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. When will the governments of the world end this futile exercise in violent puritanism? I'll post a link when Scott gets it up on the site.
