Creating people's geographies
Will the U.S. ever leave Iraq? While official policy portends an eventual departure and US Republicans such as Senator Richard Lugar are on record as speaking out and calling for a coordinated withdrawal, facts on the ground tell another, very different, story.
In this Alternate Focus video, The Bases Are Loaded, independent journalist Dahr Jamail and author Chalmers Johnson talk about how military bases in Iraq are being consolidated from over a hundred to a few “megabases” with lavish amenities. Also features Gary Hart, James Goldsborough, Nadia Keilani, Raed Jarrar, Bruce Finley, Kam Zarrabi and Mark Rudd.
