Lebanon: The Top Ten Myths About the Country and Its Conflicts – Ep 81

We take a pause from the insanity of the election and a commander in chief with COVID-19 (remind me to thank him for endangering the staff at Walter Reed, as well as the permanent staff at the WH!) to discuss the recent explosion in Lebanon and America’s long intervention history there.  We break down some of the myths from Danny’s series and give everyone a good picture of where Lebanon is today and how American foreign policy took it there.  Below is the links for Danny’s series on Lebanon.  Enjoy!!!

Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast
Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast
Chris Henrikson / Danny Sjursen / Keagan Miller / Jovanni Reyes

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.

Fortress On A Hill is hosted, written, and produced by Chris ‘Henri’ Henrikson, Danny Sjursen, and Keagan Miller.

Intro / outro music “Fortress on a hill” written and performed by Clifton Hicks.  Clifton’s Bandcamp pageClifton’s Patreon page
