Meria Heller interviews Dahr Jamail on his excellent book “The Will to Resist, Soldiers Who Refuse to Fight in Iraq & Afghanistan”. This book is a MUST for anyone considering the military. The military are victims of propaganda; “Support & Defend the Constitution by means of lawful orders”; duty bound to resist invasions/occupations; support the troops? Suicides and mental damage; returning to nothing; 30% return mentally damaged; 18 veteran suicides a day; the military the only ones hiring; recruitment “promises”; what’s it like over there? In service or jail? Vietnam’s G.I. resistance; low morale; why are they there? the draft; the media; virtual missions, search and avoid; IVAW “Winter Soldier” conference; war on reporters; the Palestine Hotel; AWOL & deserters; sexism, rape, murder and homophobia in the military; 1 in 3 women raped before discharge; La Vena Johnson – suicide? murder & rape covered up; how to stop the war and much more.
