Last Friday, I, along with Ron Glick, the co-host of our KDVS 90.3 FM
program, Speaking in Tongues
, interviewed Raed, from Raed in the Middle
, and Niki, better known as "The Letter N"
, from Another Irani Online
. They describe, from personal experience, how US policy has empowered Islamic fundamentalists, the economic and military destruction of Iraq, the prospect that a similar intervention in Iran will result in a another catastrophe, potentially even greater in scope, and the difficulty facing secularists in promoting a non-interventionist approach to the region.
Go here to listen or download the archived program. The interview commences about 17 or 18 minutes into the program, after Ron's initial commentary. It will be available through this Friday, February 10th, 5pm, Pacific time. Both Raed's and Niki's blogs, linked here, are, of course, highly recommended if you are unfamiliar with them.
