Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Jeremy Kuzmarov, James Bissett November 15, 2023

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded November 15th, 2023

If there is any value in staying informed: reading the papers, watching television reports, subscribing to online journalists and aggregators, it is to be prepared. But even the most assiduous, meticulously matriculated self-education can lead to where the familiar becomes alien, and once confident knowledge incognizance. It’s then, when the world fails to make sense, we ask, “How did we get here?”

Answering that requires a broader perspective than is possible with our noses pressed against the present; for that, a little historical distance is prescriptive. For example, we can’t appreciate why the United States is where it is in November, 2023 without knowing what happened November 22nd, 1963. Likewise, understanding Israel’s actions today means revealing the real events of November 4th, 1995.

Jeremy Kuzmarov is a journalist and author who also serves as Managing Editor at CovertActionMagazine.com. His book titles include, ‘Obama’s Unending Wars’, ‘The Russians Are Coming, Again’, written with John Marciano, and his latest, fresh from the printer’s, ‘Warmonger: How Clinton’s Malign Foreign Policy Launched the US Trajectory from Bush II to Biden’. Jeremy’s recent article at CAM, ‘Yigal Amir is Israel’s Oswald‘ examines the day prime minister, Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated and how that foul deed helped make Israel what it is today.

Jeremy Kuzmarov in the first half.

And; for millions inside the country and out, Canada seems unrecognizable today. From saluting Nazis in Parliament, to standing in opposition to peace and human rights resolutions at the United Nations, whither the familiar northern beacon of bland?

James Bissett is a former Canadian Ambassador whose tenure in Yugoslavia coincided with that country’s 1991 dissolution. And, at century’s end he was one of the very few government insiders to oppose NATO’s 78 day bombardment of Serbia in the name of “humanitarian intervention.”

James Bissett and finding Canada in the second half.

But first, Jeremy Kuzmarov and Israel’s infamous sacrifice.
