HOWARD ZINN: “Holy Wars” 2009 11 11 Democracy Now
Howard Zinn makes a persuasive case for questioning even the good wars, such as the “three holy wars” of US history.
Zinn argues in light of Obama’s Nobel Prize lecture, in which Obama said “Still, we are at war, and I am responsible for the deployment of thousands of young Americans to battle in a distant land. Some will kill. Some will be killed.” is that the American Revolution, the Civil War or The Second War may not be the one-sided moral 'victories' that conventional history teaches. Zinn in his enigmatic manner...spiced with jocularity, compelling logic,and passion leaves doubt that there is ever a 'just war'.
Howard Zinn (born August 24, 1922) is an American historian and professor emeritus in the Political Science Department at Boston University. He is the author of more than 20 books, including A People's History of the United States (1980).
