Behind the Headlines: What's the real cause of war? Ask Tony Blair

Sott Talk Radio logo
As far back as the historical record goes, human existence on planet earth has been shaped and arguably defined by war. On the most significant level, i.e. the experience of those most directly and painfully affected by it, war is nothing more than the wanton slaughter of large numbers of human beings, the majority of them civilians, for no good reason. Aldous Huxley pointed out the absurdity of war when he said:

"The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own."

If war is not then in the interest of the average human being, why does it keep happening and what do the "mostrous coventions of politics" referred to by Huxley have to with this repeating pattern of war-making?

In early 2003, at least 11 million people in cities around the world took to the streets to protest against the planned invasion of Iraq. But their voices, and that of the silent majority they represented, were completely ignored by the political elite. Less than 10 years later, 1.5 million Iraqis lie dead and world wide terrorism has increased. So who benefits?

Join your hosts on Behind the Headlines this Sunday October 25th 2015 3-5pm EST 8-10pm CET as we explore the hidden hand behind the push for perpetual war.

The Truth Perspective: What are Constructive Revolutions made of?

Sott Talk Radio logo
Broadcasting from deep in the heart of the American Empire, join your host Elan Martin, and fellow Sott.net editors, as they discuss everything from current events and the latest machinations and manipulations of the global elite to history, science, and religion, and how it all fits together.

On the lips and in the articles of many observers and activists these days is the call for Revolution in the US. With the Federal government's propensity towards war and more war, with a highly dysfunctional Congress meeting the goals of high-powered money interests and with a population of millions that has been increasingly disenfranchised, abused and terrorized the collective state of affairs in the US has become near intolerable for all but the very few.

But what to do about it - and how to do it? Though we see the desperate need for profound change in how things are being run, how can this change be implemented? Who will do the implementing, and what could take its place? As the saying goes, 'LIgnotas nulla curatio morbid' -- do not attempt to cure what you do not understand -- brings us to the question: What would a constructive Revolution consist of? And is one even possible now when it is needed most?

He burst onto the paleo scene years back with his Leptin Prescription and Cold Thermogenesis protocol.

Sott Talk Radio logo
This week on Behind the Headlines, we're discussing the 'final report' by Dutch investigators on the causes of the MH17 plane crash in eastern Ukraine in July 2014, the threat to Western civilization posed by hipsters, and signs that the northern hemisphere is in for a severely cold winter.

As the US Empire does more 'stupid stuff' in Syria, we'll also be introducing the 'New Syrian Democratic Forces', casting an eye on the Canadian elections, and sussing out what the Chinese leader's upcoming visit to the UK means for the transition to a post-American world.

The Truth Perspective: Western Violence and Disintegration: The New Normal

Sott Talk Radio logo
Broadcasting from deep in the heart of the American Empire, join your host Elan Martin, and fellow Sott.net editors, as they discuss everything from current events and the latest machinations and manipulations of the global elite to history, science, and religion, and how it all fits together.

We can hardly read, watch or hear the news without learning about some new grotesque violence inflicted among family members, a new mass shooting, a lethal bout of abuse perpetrated by police, or Western proxy forces acting like scourges upon whole nations. How much of what we're seeing is a manufactured and 'synthetic terror,' and how much of what we're seeing is the result of other factors that are largely unknown or unacknowledged. Whatever the case, the results are all around us staring us in the face, and looming larger everyday. We ignore the rising tide of irrationality and violence, which has become the 'new normal,' at our own peril.

Behind the Headlines: Russia eclipses the American Empire: A radically different world awaits

Sott Talk Radio logo
99% of the people on this planet have an entirely false understanding of how the world really works and, therefore, they totally misunderstand the true meaning and significance of major events that transpire on the political, social and environmental stages. This misunderstanding is the result of the deliberate dissemination of lies and propaganda by people in positions of power and the mainstream media that propagates these lies and propaganda.

In the two weeks since Russia began bombing ISIS positions in Syria from its airbase in Latakia, the mainstream media, both in the West and in Russia, has crafted a narrative about why this is happening. The Western narrative is that Russia is attempting to support the Assad government. The Russian perspective is that the West has not been effective in defeating the terror group and therefore the Russian military was required to get the job done. While both of these narratives describe basic truths of the situation, the true implications of, and background to Russia's moves in Syria are completely edited out and hidden from the global public record.

Suffice to say that the actions of the Russian government and military over the past few years have massive ramifications for the current world order. It is not an exaggeration to say that the world as we have all know it for 100+ years is on the brink of a profound change. Want to know what that change will involve, and how?

Behind the Headlines: Russia eclipses US as global superpower

Sott Talk Radio logo
This week on Behind the Headlines your regular hosts, Joe Quinn and Niall Bradley, are once again joined by 'The Truth Perspective' host, Harrison Koehli.

Putin's Russia shocked the world, and Western elites, with their lightning fast move to fight ISIS in Syria. Caught off guard, the American empire is further demonizing Putin and Russia in the process in a desperate bid to save face. But they don't have a leg to stand on. From the shredded tatters of democracy on US soil to the transparent joke of a foreign 'War on Terror', decades of imperial hubris have left them wide open to having the entire facade crumble. The resurgence of Russia has exposed the man behind the curtain, and the US has nowhere to go but down.

But what's the real deal in Syria and the wider Middle East? Why is it so important to Russia to defend Assad and why has the West turned on Assad like they turned on Gaddafi?

For the answers to these questions and more, join us this Sunday October 4th 2015, 2-4pm EST - 8-10pm CET.
