I enjoyed this interview. Thank you. There is so much for us Americans to learn about military and political actions in the other parts of the world, and so much of the press and the media in the US is controlled by zionist forces, both here in the US and abroad. Having noted that, I see from the map (above) that Palestine does not show up, but the military regime of israel does show up as a country. If the world is to address political and military actions truthfully and honestly, I suggest that everything, including zionist israel, be discussed. There are no sacred cows on this planet, and if humans are to strive for peace, all political and military organizations must be discussed in an open and frank manner. No more secrets. No more hidden hands of control.
