Gabriel Kolko: an end to American Empire?

The existence of the Soviet Empire and Naziism can be laid at the feet of World War I. Lenin was a “crank.” The U.S.’s Cold War with the USSR was phony. The American way of war is a dead-end. The end of American Empire is near. Republicans must be run out of power, but Democrats offer no improvement. Hillary is an “opportunist” who will say anything to gain power.

There’s a lot to digest in this meaty interview with New Left historian and political and foreign policy analyst Gabriel Kolko, author of the recent The Age of War: The United States Confronts the World. This is hot stuff, worth more than just a single listen.
