Danny Sjursen: Beyond Afghanistan: Patriotic Dissent Against U.S. Militarism

Sun December 5, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST

Maj. Sjursen will begin with the current hot topic, to an extent, of the relatively recent Afghanistan withdrawal and the failure of the war effort there. He will explain the scope and scale of ongoing U.S. military operations – a new “American Way of War” waged in the shadows as a nearly invisible campaign of abstraction. It pivots towards an acknowledgment that war is now waged for profit, profiting a select few–now loaded with blood money; blood, however, that’s on all of our hands.

• Maj. Danny Sjursen is a retired U.S. Army officer, the director of the Eisenhower Media Network (EMN), a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy (CIP), contributing editor at Antiwar.com, and co-hosts the podcast “Fortress on a Hill.” His work has appeared in the NY Times, LA Times, The Nation, The Hill, Salon, The American Conservative, and Mother Jones, among other publications. He served combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and taught history at West Point. He is the author of three books, Ghostriders of Baghdad: Soldiers, Civilians, and the Myth of the Surge, Patriotic Dissent: America in the Age of Endless War, and most recently A True History of the United States.
