Gorilla Radio for Monday, October, 29, 2007
by C. L. Cook
How long do we in Canada, and the United States, and Britain, and Australia, and those other countries willing to slaughter the innocents of Afghanistan, and Iraq, and if rumour proves true, Iran and Syria and Pakistan next too, abide the criminality of "our" governments?
 
 
This Week on GR; courageous Afghani "MP," Malalai Joya on Canada's involvement in her country; American journalist and author, Dave Lindorff on escalating aerial bombardment of Iraq and Afghanistan; and, Janine Bandcroft brings us up to speed on good things to get up to in and around Victoria in the coming week.
 
Chris Cook hosts Gorilla Radio, airing live every Monday, 5-6pm Pacific Time. In Victoria at 101.9FM, 104.3 cable, and on the internet at: http://cfuv.uvic.ca .  He also serves as a contributing editor to the web news site, www.pacificfreepress.com .

Canadians were recently informed by State broadcaster, the CBC, that polls conducted in Afghanistan show high approval ratings for Canadian intervention in that country. It's a claim put to the lie by crusading National Assembly member, Malalai Joya. Joya was in Victoria yesterday on the finishing leg of her cross-country tour of Canada. I went down to the Canada Out of Afghanistan march and talked to Malalai Joya and some of the other participants. The authentic view from Afghanistan in the first half.

And; Far from easy victories promised, six and four years after their commencements, the battle for the hearts and minds of the Afghani and Iraqi people respectively have failed utterly. How else can you account for the aerial bombardment currently being conducted above Baghdad and increasingly around Kandahar? The Pentagon, and their quisling operatives in London, Ottawa, and Canberra, do as little accounting of the reality on the ground as possible, reminding again that the real battle is for the hearts and minds of the citizens of their own countries, the ones picking up the tab for their atrocious actions. Dave Lindorff is a Philadelphia-based, award-winning journalist and author of 'This Can't Be Happening! Resisting the Disintegration of American Democracy,' with Barbera Oshansky, 'The Case for Impeachment: Legal Arguments for Removing President George W. Bush from Office,' and 'Killing Time: An Investigation into the Death Row Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal,' among others. Dave Lindorff in the second half.


And; Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with all that's good to do in and around Victoria in the coming week. but first, Dave Lindorff and tracking the American blitzkrieg over there.
