This week’s Global Research News Hour airs a recording of a lecture by Professor Michel Chossudovsky, delivered June 8, 2018 in Regina, Saskatchewan. The lecture is based on his book, The Globalization of War: America’s Long War on Humanity. In this speech, Professor Chossudovsky postulates that the US and its Western allies have embarked on a hegemonic war of conquest, using the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as a pre-text. Further exacerbating this diabolical agenda is the complicity of media and co-opted movements which refuse to challenge the pre-text of a war on terrorism or of ‘humanitarian interventions.’
Professor Chossudovsky is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa and the Founder and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization. He is the award-winning author of 11 books and numerous academic articles. His site is globalresearch.ca
