A clip from our larger interview with the great critic of American Empire Andrew Bacevich, a professor emeritus and retired army colonel–we talked about the pernicious effects of American Exceptionalism, the belief that god ordained the U.S. to be the greatest country in the world and demanded that America go abroad to “civilize” other areas.
Green and Red had a great conversation with the well-known scholar (and Retired Colonel) Andrew Bacevich, whose new book is *After the Apocalypse.* We began by getting his views on the recent revelations regarding JCS Chair Mark Milley’s role in opposing Trump’s attempt to steal the election.
