EXCLUSIVE BROADCAST:

Eric Margolis on Trump & Military Service—and More

Eric Margolis

In his new article “Is This the Man with his Finger on the Button?” award-winning journalist Eric Margolis offers a nuanced yet devastating assessment of Trump’s alleged remarks calling fallen soldiers “losers” and “suckers”:

“Our commander-in-chief Trump reportedly dodged the Vietnam era draft six times, at least once because of a little bone spur in one of his dainty feet that were more used to the floors of New York discos than far-flung battlefields…I enlisted in the wartime US Army to go fight in Vietnam. I didn’t have to. I had been accepted to do advanced degrees at Britain’s Oxford University and London’s War College. Instead, I chose to sign my life away to the Army. During the rigors of basic training, I broke a small bone in my left foot, described by medics as a ‘march injury’ from too much stress on the foot. It was very painful and forced me to hobble and limp while drill sergeants roared abuse at me. Somehow, I graduated from basic and advanced infantry training and still managed dawn bayonet practice against straw-stuffed dummies while yelling, ‘Kill the Kong! Kill the Kong!’”

Why did Eric Margolis volunteer to fight in Vietnam? What changed his view of that war? Under what conditions is war justified? Are all wars—or at least all recent US wars—based on lies? (And if so, did Trump have a point?!) Was the US military hijacked on 9/11 by neocons and flown on a suicide mission against the Middle East on behalf of Israel? Did the same US military biowar complex that manufactured The 2001 Anthrax Deception also engineer the COVID-19 pandemic? These are some of the questions raised in this unusually frank interview with one of our leading  mainstream world affairs journalists.

Eric S. Margolis is an award-winning, internationally syndicated columnist. His articles have appeared in the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune the Los Angeles Times, Times of London, the Gulf Times, the Khaleej Times, Nation – Pakistan, Hurriyet, – Turkey, Sun Times Malaysia and other news sites in Asia.
