6:31 am
leash on our protesters killing at least sixteen and wounding dozens. well next year r.t. we talked to bernie dena dorm the former leader of the radical and t.v.'s on group underground she says america's militarization and wars pose a threat to the entire world you with us here. archie is in chicago sitting down with longtime activist former leader of the weather underground radical group that operated back in the sixty's and seventy's and now clinical law professor at northwestern university and director of the children and family justice center bernardine dohrn thank you so much for joining us today pleasure now you obviously have an extremely diverse biography hated by so romanticized by others from being on the f.b.i.'s top ten most wanted list to now being a law professor and dealing with children's rights which one of these stages serves
6:32 am
your purpose is the most i don't think of them is that the state and i feel like i've been obsessed with a couple of things my whole life certainly the question of justice and certainly he swore in peace you obviously throughout your career had received so much criticism of. your activities and actions were very radical about this group the weather underground. did some things that were you know later deemed terrorist and you say this entire time that you were really fighting for peace we've become used really since nine eleven as an example of american terrorism but we were never terrorists in fact i think the whole. the war and black freedom movement in the united states were militant had militant edges but really were always restrained and if you look around the world at the time we in fact were
6:33 am
tactically very restrained our rhetoric was sometimes a little inflamed and hyperbolic but our our actions really were quite restrained. in that revolution and insurgency takes is constantly changing we just saw the mideast uprisings who could have imagined that before it happened when those events broke out a lot of people in the united states worst. sort of fearful that the same could happen here on that kind of scale do you think that's possible of course it's possible you know we grown up in an era of american exceptionalism right the last seventy years where the united states somehow isn't bound by the other laws of history but of course we are bound by the laws of history militarily the united states is obviously still in full swing with iraq afghanistan libya military power still what do you make of that and what do you make of these particular wars and also what the peace movement where is it all this is going on it's not forget that
6:34 am
well i think that the u.s. economic down and spoke with globally hundred seventy four military bases you know over three five wars three shadow wars i think that it's you know a great danger to the world i think that the militarization at home is also quite significant since nine eleven and the i'm raveling of all of victories of the sixty's where is the peace movement i think the peace movement in the veterans coming home and i'm not sure why that is i think that people oppose the war there's no question that the american people oppose the iraq war continue to oppose it and think we should leave but we oppose the escalation in afghanistan they supported it you know the day after nine eleven and have opposed it ever since and and they already opposed the libyan. so i think the american people are not i mean really. right they haven't been able to change the tremendous military
6:35 am
control of this democracy so we haven't been able to stop the wars but i don't want you to i don't think you should read in my eyes how much the american people don't like these wars and then i think the second major force people i work with are the veterans coming home because as in vietnam and. as in every war they come home and see the truth about what they've been asked to do and i think this current glorification of the troops can't hide the reality of what happens when these young kids women and come home and they are the real truth tellers this us imperialism we've touched on a little bit yourself as well as quite a significant number of other people believe that the u.s. power is dying down both politically in interaction rather with other countries economically where does it really stand now realistically well i think that it's destroying itself american hegemony is no longer to be we have too many rising
6:36 am
economic and cultural powers in the world i think that gives us here in the united states a tremendous opportunity as well as a tremendous risk the risk of course is we've seen other countries other empires decline but where their military stays very strong and that is a tremendous danger can turn everything into a military opportunity instead of there's a social and human opportunity do you think that. that decline economy is also like a very significant large contributor to the fact that the united states is losing its power abroad just the fact that so many people here are struggling and are not contributing to the economy or the country as a strong force the tremendous acceleration of that gap of income in the united states in the last decade says it all yes most of us are getting poorer tiny handful or less than one percent of the population are getting extravagantly
6:37 am
wealthy you know you look from nine eleven till today and you say you know yes people who perpetrated the tragedy and i reckon take justice are many ways to do that could have. brought them in front of an international tribunal could have had a police action three or. millions of people being displaced separations of countries accusations of three countries that couldn't bring the united states to the work country and it certainly has imposed a tragedy on the rest of the world one of the latest developments to the war on terrorism course the death of bin laden i want to ask you as a law professor under what legal basis was that committed by the united states i heard a legal commentator yesterday on the radio when i was driving home and i was laughing out loud because. he claimed that under the u.n.
6:38 am
charter the great of self-defense was in operation here self-defense yes maybe after nine eleven the operation that was carried out against this terrorist cell would have been justified under international law ten years later you invade another country with your military and land and do it. and the other hand we can take this moment i think as an opportunity for peace really ok now it's time to declare an end to these wars which came at least a rationalization by u.s. presidents who was just you know to prevent nine eleventh's from happening again why don't we see this is a moment to withdraw from afghanistan and iraq just for ok do you think that's possible or is it also possible that this could this moment could be taken as an extra opportunity to really intensify efforts and well afghanistan's not going to
6:39 am
go well no matter how you define going well it is not possible to win these wars whatever that means and everybody knows that but the lamb is you can hear that drumbeat now for pakistan you know against pakistan and there's always going to be were ran was always available for the military aggressors that seem to dominate you know we've seen the united states. people want an end to these wars they voted for the current president as a peace candidate and now we've got two more wars so let's have an end to this as the death of bin laden should be a moment where we can say yes now withdraw american withdraw from occupation what are the chances of that really well i don't we don't know until we know we do we we don't know until we insist on it and i think it's our only hope is demilitarizing the entire american economy so large that will result in patients going on because
6:40 am
politicians love the occupations i think that they serve the interests of you know . the late empire of capitalism if you will there about oil you can't say well we didn't intervene in bahrain but we did intervene in libya right. i mean you had there's reasons why it will stay under it was very couple standards of course double standards we have the fifth fleet in bahrain and libya has oil and is near to europe and has no air defense system yeah there were very practical reasons why we pick and choose you did declare a state of war on the us government that was seven jeans and you were on the f.b.i.'s top ten most wanted fugitives list and you were known to say that the real terrorist is the u.s. government yes do you still maintain these sorts of statements i think we were rebellions i think that we were in insurgency we were dissidents american dissidents in the classic tradition. you know we were we thought it was possible to
6:41 am
join the global struggle of revolutionary war at that moment in the sixty's so i understand how unkind about it. i think now as many people do metaphors so terrible it's just so caramel and quick so much suffering on every one . that i wish we had kind of kept that rebel. rebellion metaphor instead. of the other things that we said and i stand by them about the u.s. government being terrorist that didn't come about long ago from what i read this was only in ninety three just you know decade ago do you still believe i do believe that i think you know i mean from the year in order to save people is a terrible idea if those bad people don't like it is that terrorism it usually is terrorism because it's killing civilians. i think you can call it you know
6:42 am
a message of. war to free people but i think that of course the wars of wars of empire have always been wrapped in. paper and ribbons of democracy and bringing education and freedom to people it's terrorism when you yes i mean civilian populations occupying land to make sure i understand correctly in this war on terror the u.s. is also a terrorist is that what you mean that is what i mean i think if you look at the terrorist act of nine eleven which created tremendous suffering and hardship here and around the world i mean it wasn't just americans who died in the world trade center and they're not in this activity is certainly made. thousands if not millions of arabs and muslims suffer as well.
6:43 am
and there's nothing to justify its total and. it's also true that the response of the us government war and occupation in both iraq and afghanistan are not justified. it's ten years later whatever we're doing in afghanistan it isn't about al qaeda and bin laden and as you can see from the arab spring the world has moved on the arab world is. really struggling for the same things who are all we all want real democracy not paper democracy real economic futures for our children living in more harmoniously not being afraid all the time what is the media doing these days when it comes to all of these issues they take the defense department. press releases and read them as news uncritically we need a robust independent critical media and especially critical of our border jim
