Andrew Cockburn comes back on the show to discuss his recent piece, “The Military-Industrial Virus.” Cockburn describes how the war planners, and even many of the officers, don’t care all that much about the men they’re sending off to fight and die in America’s wars. Mostly they’re waiting to cash in on comfortable pensions or work on the civilian side at a firm like Raytheon or Boeing. Cockburn laments how President Trump ran against the wars and the military-industrial complex, but hasn’t turned any of his good instincts into policy.
