Chris Giannou - Understanding the Middle East

Large parts of the Middle East today are engulfed in violence. Why? What historical factors shape the current conflicts? Take Iraq for example, a country in chaos. The U.S. has been intervening in Iraq non-stop for decades. What has it produced? Sectarianism and strife. Death and destruction. Actual U.S. policy in the Middle East is buried in a blizzard of propaganda about democracy and human rights while in practice Washington backs feudal and repressive regimes like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and the Emirates as well as dictatorships like Egypt. Justification for U.S. military bases, invasions and occupations are cloaked in the garb of altruism and noble intent. It’s always been that way for imperial powers.

Karen James interviews domestic violence advocate Liysa Swart. Liysa released from prison in 2012 after serving 12 years for killing her abusive husband. Many women serving time in Coffee Creek Correctional Facility, Oregon’s only women’s prison, picked up a bat or knife to stop an abusive partner. Liysa says the women end up serving long sentences under Oregon’s mandatory minimum sentencing law, Measure 11, while the abusive partner is free. She works tirelessly to raise awareness about domestic violence which she calls a national disgrace.
