New World Notes - Casualties of War
This week on New World Notes: radio program #265, April 2, 2013, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst takes a look at some seldom-acknowledged victims of the U.S.'s current wars.
Hundreds of children have been killed by drone strikes ordered by President Obama. (We name 25 of the children.) Thousands of U.S. servicemembers, male and female, are raped each year by other U.S. servicemembers. One soldier per day commits suicide and one veteran per hour.
Why is this happening?
Features articles by Dave Lindorff, Alyssa Rohricht, and the New York Times; commentary in song by David Rovics and Roy Zimmerman; and remarks by me.
Music added: David Rovics, "The Comets of Kandahar"; Roy Zimmerman, from "Thanks for the Support"; and a dash of Orff's "Carmina Burana" (London S.O.).
Chuck Rosina recorded David Rovics live in performance in Boston on January 27, 2013. The articles by Dave Lindorff and by Alyssa Rohricht are from CounterPunch online. .
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "radar") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.
