Clip File: Long War Needs Long Peace Movement

"The simultaneous conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and beyond are all connected to the Pentagon strategy of 'the Long War' projected to last fifty years in 'the arc of crisis' that just happens to stretch across Muslim lands where there are oil reserves and plans for Western-dominated pipelines. The term 'Long War' was introduced by Gen. John Abizaid in the 1990s and is the perspective of counterinsurgency experts around the Pentagon and think tanks led by the Center for New American Security.

"The Long War will require a long peace movement, and a different one."

-- Long War Needs Long Peace Movement by Tom Hayden (Huffington Post, 2009-07-01)
