War-nation US, the lies it tells, and why we shouldn't go down its war path

Friday, 12 August 2022 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Jacques and Jennifer wonder why we're lock-stepping with the US down its war-mongering path - not just relating to policy, but having US military operations on our shores and in our waters, and having interchangeable defence hardware. It seems that we are all hoodwinked by US propaganda with its supposed higher moral ground - and our mainstream media have completely dropped the ball.

To provide some balance, Jennifer and Jacques challenge three pillars of US propaganda: (i) that the US is a beacon and promoter of democracy, (ii) that China is the main aggressor in the current conflict (and implicitly that the US is not militarily aggressive), and (iii) that the US is interested in the international 'rule of law'.
