1:32 am
a couple of people lost the road and went over to the front gate of the ne watson station inform them that we were blocking and there was already a train that we could see you know this combo box cars were going to show they had to. be sure to engineer knew there was a dog or something on the rocks or use our brains. to the police would probably come at some point to remove them before they could move the train. we deliver the letter to the person at the base. and that person or someone else said we understand there's going to be violence here today. and we said no no we're told when the people are going to be doing any well. and then they start walking back and they say. walking back the cranes are a local. it was
1:33 am

1:35 am
cracks working the ground run over by a train. this morning. one to two a. few minutes we're going to be there with. which. we will watch it. with you with. this and for me it's a little that i. begin to just wish to get out of this. brian immediately wanted to get out into the right now to the track see in the surgeon that's in his heart immediately his compassion for the spotters on the train and doctors of the train he got it right away or other people expressed anything like that no doubt they were given an order just like they were given orders and vietnam to bomb diligence.
1:36 am
in one thousand eighty eight or take us government recognized brian sacrifice and his service to the people of nicaragua to receive the nation's highest honor the old goose still says our son deno a. little so. just to see the miracles this. was. just. the train attack drew attention to the u.s. military's involvement in the legal wars highlighting its role in training secret
1:37 am
armies from other countries most of the covert training took place in fort benning georgia at the notorious school of the americas. looks awful. for good. as we gather today the main gate of fort benning. portfolios the point of the many this is there a sacred moment is this the moment. cannot go about the business of killing without . changed we cannot come back from vietnam afghanistan and iraq and all those wars and go on with our lives as before. you know all these suicides stick p.t.s.d. that we reading so much about now. the message is clear we are not.
1:38 am
this is areso a wide stare right. i realize something that was. made by the right and often. played on a stand for the war on terror as it were or why we're all. right there is a bit silly other people i know just because i was ordered to do it so i don't. be disobedient. five hundred twenty five salvadoran soldiers arrived at fort benning georgia to start training there in combat a small group of us went in to say not in our name. and what we found through the freedom of information act was a schooner assassins as we are and it's well known it came to light in america a school for dictators a school march. on washington calls front
1:39 am
page long to figure. it a very big article that the torture and. there were a few news at the school of the americas techniques of torture is serious. crimes against here. and it was time. to put out the word. this. who went to latin america simply to request that the stops and in the troops here and i'm happy to report that five countries made decisions to pull out. those countries to be in argentina uruguay venezuela bolivia he went to ecuador where you met with president rafael correa and at that meeting he announced that it could. or it was going out of the school of the americas it's something
1:40 am
very important that according to. this school should not exist. let. the east. so. you can name or see. peaceful efforts to disarm the iraqi regime have failed because we are not dealing with peaceful man. intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the iraqi regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised. by went downstairs hours later the pentagon and the joint staff called me into his office and said i want you to know he said we're going to attack iraq you pull up a piece of paper off his desk so i just got this memo from the fences off that says we're going to attack and destroy their governments and seven countries in five
1:41 am
years we're going to start with iraq and then we're going to move to syria lebanon libya somalia sudan and iran i seventy seven countries in five years i says in a classified memo he said yes sir i said well don't show it jim. i go to camp sundown to get for people that can't go. and they're like so tired. safe house i guess they don't have to talk about what they go through with us because we understand her daughter katie was diagnosed with a very rare son sensitive condition if i get sunburned i heal she doesn't feel patients and they have problems with the walk to talk to your son the brains that
1:42 am
are actually shrinking inside the skull gets thicker in the brain still small. the pain is indescribable it's feels like a really really bad chemical burn but it goes through your skin in your muscle down to the bone and there's no relief. so we're just not sure this is just. us producing a lot of oil and gas in our energy independent as big as the bin russia and saudi arabia but the point as you're making there is that they're actually losing money on every power. responding in this hour the need. arise to hold the power but i can gouge and guns which i live. as this stock. market going to employ is going to go to the rich.
1:43 am
unless i go over and here is the other third the most a month and o.c.d. i mean look if you get to thump and you know has a funny because you don't love million. right on the bank or if you work on a base walker chemical lies and as our business is going to go he would develop a new treatment there internationally mockers know that these industries out of polluting goodness in philly. nor the money that ends most of them loving else unless the mother of them like me to the last name of this.
1:44 am
brian lost his legs trying to stop a train from going to central america to finance the same kind of war that we were engaged in in iraq the same kind of war that was being wasted against a nigger i want to be home when i was growing up and. as a young immigrant community and joining the us military in part to pay for a college education through the g.i. bill i was a very political i read the new but i didn't really question things i had been in the military almost a year i was about to graduate from college i didn't want to put anything in jeopardy. so i said to myself i'll just go to this war. because maybe we will just scare saddam hussein out of power and come back in no time i'll go back to school and everything will be fine.
1:45 am
my units first mission was to run a prisoner of war camp in al assad air base and there we used fear tactics that amounted to torture in order to keep prisoners to get the right. to be interrogated. in the city of ramadi it became evident. that our military commanders were not interested in helping the iraqi people. they were not interested in the well being of their own soldiers either. we started engaging their persistence in combat. which was basically hit and run operation for them. in order to retaliate since we were dealing with a ghost enemy we're going after the people who are killing to. the situation was very intense we were being hit with mortar rounds improvised
1:46 am
explosive devices rocket propelled grenades were moving targets which made it very difficult for anybody to question the morality of the war and. so i lost my my moral compass you could say i was too afraid to question i was too afraid to take a stand. until i went home i had to with for a lot and eventually became clear to me that i could not in good conscience continue to be a part of the war at that point i became the first combat veteran to publicly refuse to go back to war based on morality and based on my own assertion that the war was oil driven. after five months the area of being on the ground and being a wall and putting together a conscientious objector claim. i decided to surrender to the military.
1:47 am
that made my case very political to the military commander. on the military installation. i was very scared of what the military would would do to me if i spoke out against a war and surrender. you may not know or maybe you do know that they still have the death penalty for the service in a time of war so i was really afraid of buck and i had no idea what would happen there. so i mean it is. you it was authorized. under the treaties which we have thought. precedent which we. have to. take more if you want to be a great society than find obedience to a tyrant. you she didn't order is illegal intervene in order to commit
1:48 am
a crime don't do it. quickly found guilty. assertion. and given up by bad conduct discharge the motion to stop sergeant the private. sector of my pay and twelve months of incarceration in a military jail. there i became a prisoner of conscience. after nine months i was released early because of good. and then i became an anti-war activist thank you a duty we stand for the immediate withdrawal of all u.s. troops from iraq when i got out of jail in the first place is that i've decided what's good for an area where brian was living not the time from that moment on my association with brian began to open my eyes in ways that i had never imagined possible i began to meet so many people that helped me understand so many different pieces of the web of. what has been and still is u.s.
1:49 am
intervention throughout latin america and the world. there are over one million american military personnel stationed in one hundred seventy five countries the u.s. government has increased its military budget play nearly ninety percent since two thousand the budget now stands at seven hundred billion dollars per year. add in health costs plus interest for more than one point five million veterans and the u.s. is paying one. trillion dollars per year. and the preparation of. our government spends ten times more percent of some on average for military costs over industrialized. this increased military spending has not made the us more secure home. well you know let's face it the weapons corporations in america always love the enemy and they always log new instability
1:50 am
because they're able to sell more weapons that way the pentagon says our role in america under corporate globalization will be security export which means and war to benefit the corporations so we can extract oil. minerals from africa or whatever that our job is going to be making weapons fighting wars and increasingly . communities addicted to military spending cutting the military budget just a tiny little bit corporations are saying don't do that because we're going to lay off thousands of people before the next election will punish us if you try to cut the military budget so we're held hostage. and say hey we're not trying to. play now the way we
1:51 am
conduct ourselves in the world makes us a lot of enemies and one thing that i think is important. in april two thousand and ten army private manning sent to wiki leaks to iraq air strikes video collateral murder which shows a u.s. helicopter gun down eleven on our journalists to be. on. for leaking the classified video and related documents manning was charged with espionage and abetting the enemy the sentence was thirty five years in the military prison. whoever leaked all those state department documents to the wiki leaks website is a traitor if you want to have a democracy with even some democratic front some foreign policy have to have was
1:52 am
labeled as an interest and that will always be at risk because the government will always try to deter anyone from following their example. during sentencing manning apologize to the court. i'm sorry for the unintended consequences of my actions and i made these decisions i believed i was going to help people not hurt. to make democracy functional really to get the information we need we need whistleblowers who expose the truth that personally british. people who will risk their reelection are using their powers of all for their powers in a corporation to effect bullshit. at dawn every sunday since february two thousand and fourteen contemporary military cemetery appears on santa monica beach in california it is an improvised protest to
1:53 am
remind people of the costs and consequences of the rule is an instrument of american foreign looms. to st louis right there see those three. over there you can see two here those are just those are images of all those it wounded american and iraqi like children it's a people that's the first thing they see and i think. something is touched it. yeah so because nobody is paying for more they think they're right. i'm paying for the wreck. and they're not paying for it threaten. me devastated my child been taken in. this is an effort to be introduced to the world i'm able to feel something. about the monster for me to kill me.
1:54 am
and the sound of the crowd. let's put it takes to remember. when you know you've seen it before. then it turn cheese drill. down on them please. use them to. move closer that i'm a model please. read the answers because. everybody has a greater role to play the role they're playing right now people who are afraid to write right start out with a two paragraph letter to the editor and you'll see the words will start flowing people who are prayed to speak out. by convincing
1:55 am
a friend and then those speaking in a church and then you'll find your voice you can do it with a measure of fear because you can be very frightened but it's equally when it's over and you've confronted your worst fears and then called the society out and you said i love you enough to risk your route by opposing me and i didn't harm anyone if we don't willing to go into harm's way and willing to risk being killed for our sins surely. we can risk some discomfort for an easy nice for pete's. and. our suffering to other human beings who are worth more. then the question is how can you justify continuing to live a shift other people don't come. along to please.
1:56 am
the. president say. they're close enough. in the shadows of our own. skin them. to this thing would be easy but then that. was. by.
1:57 am
i'm one of them but i think. we're buddies. put them down i don't want or i think it's funny as hell and mission into that
1:58 am
community yeah. whom he could feel that he had to keep that going i know he made a move out of a photo that you know enough but otoh before i don't know. when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murderer i would prefer it be in the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict is found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people was terrifying who's just new really hasn't been that we're even many a victim's families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victims' families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way.
1:59 am
it's ukraine versus russia again a minor maritime incident on the current strait is said to be anything between a major international crisis to achieve campaign trick as ukraine interest in election cycle take your pick but one thing is for sure russia is deemed aggressive by the west even when defending its solver. new trick or frightening yeah. i'm a little but i think it's ended up by one local news we're buddies. a
2:00 am
lot on. one of them one night you should have an extra. trip and i don't want or i can't listen to me as well and nation under the name of community yeah i am kind of the little room gets kinda any kind of chicken dad's going to say he made a move on a photo of the last young enough i don't know before i don't mess with. all the top stories this hour wiki leaks prepares to take the u.k.'s guardian newspaper to court saying it lawyered over an alleged meeting between julia song and former trump campaign chief paul manifold also ahead. don't sell your house. so.
