Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast

By Chris Henrikson / Danny Sjursen / Keagan Miller

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world’s countries, and yet, most Americans don’t know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a ‘warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn’t see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.

The hearings was preceded by the revelations of the My Lai massacre, which unlike Winter Soldier, received major media attention and forced U.S. officials to defend their policies in Vietnam, causing leaders like General Westmoreland, the senior U.S. commander in Vietnam, to refer to My Lai participants as “a few bad apples”, a comment that many veterans of Vietnam found beyond disingenuous and, alongside other dismissals by those in power, compelled them to speak out.   It was organized by members of Vietnam Veterans Against The War (VVAW), with many of the veterans who participated having never spoken of their experiences publicly prior to their testimony, nor were many of them antiwar activists before the inquiry began.  It was filmed by a documentary crew and then turned into a film, which is available on YouTube, for anyone who wants to watch it.

But what is this complex? More accurately rendered as the “military-industrial-congressional complex,” it is comprised of the Pentagon, the headquarters of the U.S. Armed Forces; industry, the corporations that sell goods and services to the Pentagon and allied governments; and Congress, which authorizes funding for the Pentagon to purchase industry’s products. Large corporations—the “industrial” side—steer the triangle. Understanding the War Industry is a critical examination of corporate influence on matters of war. The book throws back the veil on how the corporations comprising the U.S. war industry wield authority and exploit financial structures and legal code. Sorensen demonstrates how corporate aggressors profit through such business sectors of war as information technology, nuclear weaponry, drones, space, and special operations. Sales to foreign governments (“foreign military sales,” or FMS) provide a major source of revenue for U.S. war corporations. Large swaths of U.S. academia function as part of the war industry instead of advancing the public’s understanding of the world or incubating innovation that benefits human progress. Other revelations within Understanding the War Industry include insight into how corporate boardrooms view the troops, overseas bases, and warzones. Understanding the War Industry can be read as a call for peaceful mobilization or as a detailed journey covering the ins and outs of corporate dominance. Drawing upon an impressive body of research, Sorensen demonstrates how industry commands the other two sides of the military-industrial-congressional triangle and how it subverts democracy in the process. Stunning in its depth and analytical perspective, Understanding the War Industry instructs the reader about the state of the nation and offers hope for a future in which “national security” involves caring for the public instead of waging elective global war.

Here, Danny and I discuss this issue with Pam Campos-Palma, a progresive Latina political strategist whose activism includes, among many topics, fighting for lasting change within the military’s sexual assault / harassment systems, and we’re excited to bring her incredible experience to Fortress On A Hill. Pam Campos-Palma is an impactful political strategist and movement builder focused on peace and security, equity engineering, and movement building at home and across borders. She is an often consulted and trusted adviser to national-level leaders, organizations, think tanks, and campaigns, expertly bridging the gap between grassroots movement and grasstops policy worlds to win lasting change. At the core of all her work is the democratization of foreign/defense/security policy through the leadership development, coalition building, and political organizing of war-affected peoples, namely the vets/military community. She is also engaged in transatlantic work around populism and defeating rising global ethno-nationalism and democratic slide. Pam served in the U.S. Air Force for over a decade as an operations and anti-terrorism intelligence analyst working in Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Iraq and Afghanistan. She began her career in the immigrant rights movement, served as a gubernatorial appointee for the state of Oregon, and as a consultant to international NGO’s and social impact ventures. She is a 2019 Atlantik-Brücke Young Leader, was named a \"Top 40 Under 40 Latinos in Foreign Policy\" by Huffington Post and a 2018 Champion of Change by the UN. Pam has been featured on NBC, CNN, BBC, and NPR, among others, and holds a Masters of Public Administration from NYU with a focus in International Policy and Management. She is a Defense Council member of the Truman National Security Project, an Advisory Board member of Women of Color Advancing Peace and Security (WCAPS), and was a member of the 2019 Women’s March Steering Committee.

America's military industrial complex and multiple presidential administrations have funnelled several generations of soldiers through unwinnable wars from Vietnam to Afghanistan and Iraq seemingly without qualms. What has emerged from these tragedies are thousands of traumatized young Americans bringing home wars and leaving behind millions of innocent civilians killed, wounded and forced to become refugees. But some of these former soldiers also came home with an urgent new perspective to share with their compatriots. That is the case of the two veterans on this week’s “Scheer Intelligence” episode: Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone and journalist Maj. Danny Sjursen. Although they served in the U.S. military with very different ranks and decades apart, the two share one important commonality: dissent. Before pursuing a career in film, that ultimately would win him many awards and accolades, despite often tackling controversial topics, Stone worked first on a U.S. Merchant Marine ship in 1966, and later joined the U.S. Army and requested to be sent into combat. Sjursen took another route, becoming  a military officer at the prestigious West Point Academy before being sent overseas for several tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and recently retiring after nearly two decades of service. Stone’s new book, “Chasing the Light: Writing, Directing, and Surviving Platoon, Midnight Express, Scarface, Salvador, and the Movie Game” coming out soon, and Sjursen’s new book, “Patriotic Dissent: America in the Age of Endless War,” to be published in September, the two dissenters sat down with host Robert Scheer to discuss the concepts of patriotism and American exceptionalism in the context of their own life experiences as well as the film director’s career.  “When we talk about exceptionalism,” says the retired Army major, “through these terrible movies that are made post-9/11 about combat, it strikes me that perhaps your dedication to showing reality, to showing the brutality, is often misunderstood [by critics] as liking the violence or fetishization of violence when the reality is you hate violence so much. Perhaps you’re trying to demonstrate that through a refusal to whitewash it. Has that been an aspect for you throughout [your career]?” “As I said in the book, it’s in me too,” responds Stone, reflecting on the violence he internalized while fighting in Vietnam. “There is an aspect of that ugliness in me. Charlie Sheen comes out of that war [in my film “Platoon” and] he says, ‘I’m the stepchild, the child of both [sergeants] Barnes and Elias.’ You take in the poison. You have to, to survive, I suppose. You can’t be an idealist in a war. You’re on site. It’s a very dirty situation.  “So I came home a darker strain of myself,” he concludes. “And I saw it in myself. So when I did these movies, I said, ‘Let it out, show it, man. Show it in all its ferocity, and let them fucking realize.’ That was what was misunderstood, and thank you for saying that. That’s been constant in my fucking life, just constant.” Sjursen pins the conversation back to Stone’s book, which details the first four decades of the film director and screenwriter’s life, throughout the discussion, insightfully linking Stone’s many films, from “Platoon” to “Salvador” and “The Untold History of the United States,”  to the political events that not only shaped the two veteran’s lives, but also the America we all know and live in today.  Tying the two careers together, Scheer concludes, “Oliver Stone’s movies and Maj. Danny Sjursen’s writing are ultimately attempts to hold us accountable. For our apathy, our indifference. We send people like Oliver and Danny to war. We all do; we pay the taxes. Most people didn’t protest, most people think it’s just hunky-dory, right. And you guys witnessed evil by your own side.”  Listen to Stone, Sjursen and Scheer grapple with what it means to be American,","duration_ms":4419944,"explicit":false,"external_urls":{"spotify":"https://open.spotify.com/episode/4daVOYlGq6lTt5E0F2Llnh"},"href":"https://api.spotify.com/v1/episodes/4daVOYlGq6lTt5E0F2Llnh","html_description":"(click here to see the video version of this episode.)\nAmerica's military industrial complex and multiple presidential administrations have funnelled several generations of soldiers through unwinnable wars from Vietnam to Afghanistan and Iraq seemingly without qualms.

Gareth Porter is an independent investigative journalist who has covered national security policy for decades, really, and was the recipient of the 2012 Gellhorn Prize for Journalism for his coverage of the U.S. War in Afghanistan.  He is a graduate of the University of Chicago and Cornell, where he earned a Ph.D. in Southeast Asian Studies.  Much of his early work - as scholar and activist - surrounded the American War in Vietnam.  He was, in fact, a chairman of the Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars at Cornell and then a Saigon Bureau Chief in country.  Especially since 2005, he’s regularly reported on political, diplomatic and military developments in the Middle East for a variety of mainstream and alternative publications. His previous books include Perils of Dominance: Imbalance of Power and the Road to War in Vietnam, and Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare (2014), among many others.  His most recent is The CIA Insider’s Guide to the Iran Crisis co-authored with John Kiriakou.  Currently, he has a column at the GrayZone.

This should scare you; it terrifies the fuck out of us. And with that in mind, we want to remind our listeners, especially those who are still in the military, of one very important thing: you don’t have to do this.  You don’t have to deploy to the Middle East. You don’t have to sacrifice your own safety, nor those of your fellow troops, nor certainly the safety of the people of the Middle East (especially Iraqis and Iranians.)  If you need an ear, email us anytime. You can also call us, leave a message, and we will call you back. You also can contact the fine folks at the GI Rights Hotline. Their information is below. The GI Rights Hotline provides accurate, helpful counseling and information on military discharges, AWOL and UA, and GI Rights: Why should I call 1-877-447-4487?

This should scare you; it terrifies the fuck out of us.\n\nAnd with that in mind, we want to remind our listeners, especially those who are still in the military, of one very important thing: you don’t have to do this.  You don’t have to deploy to the Middle East. You don’t have to sacrifice your own safety, nor those of your fellow troops, nor certainly the safety of the people of the Middle East (especially Iraqis and Iranians.)  If you need an ear, email us anytime. You can also call us, leave a message, and we will call you back. You also can contact the fine folks at the GI Rights Hotline. Their information is below.\n\n\n\nThe GI Rights Hotline provides accurate, helpful counseling and information on military discharges, AWOL and UA, and GI Rights:\n\nWhy should I call 1-877-447-4487?\n\nThe GI Rights Network is a private, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that answers thousands of calls from military personnel and their families. There are many reasons for these calls. You can call us for help with any of the following issues:\n\n \tDEP Discharges (Delayed Entry Program)\n \tEntry Level Separation\n \tDependency or Hardship Discharges\n \tMedical or Disability Discharges\n \tODPMC or Psychological Discharges\n \tConscientious Objection Discharges\n \tReservist Unsatisfactory Participation\n \tAWOL or UA\n \tReservist Mobilization\n \tArticle 138 Complaints\n \tHarassment or Discrimination\n\nWhat will happen when I call?\n\n \tYou will be helped by a trained GI counselor.\n \tIf a counselor is unavailable, you may leave a voice message, or contact the Hotline by eMail or text message.\n\nOur trained civilian counselors are ready to help you sort out your options.\n\nCall now — the call and the service are free and confidential.\n\n\n\nEnjoy the show?!  Please leave us a review right here.\n\nContact us direct by email at fortressonahill@gmail.com\n\nCheck out our t-shirt store on Spreadshirt.com\n\nLeave us a voicemail at 860-598-0570.\n\nNot a contributor on Patreon?

The military is joined disproportionately by a ‘warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn’t see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.","id":"2FfTHBcSCR4wozTs1vAXAZ","images":[{"height":640,"url":"https://i.scdn.co/image/b4269b3b245c6c0077ea3402454fc6881a5f45cb","width":640},{"height":300,"url":"https://i.scdn.co/image/da7c263e852bc4f2672c98d1a9f9633cfde43065","width":300},{"height":64,"url":"https://i.scdn.co/image/3bf57052a0069aa1e4ea8874f2d1d04e2ac2959a","width":64}],"is_externally_hosted":false,"languages":["en-US"],"media_type":"audio","name":"Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast","publisher":"Chris Henrikson / Danny Sjursen / Keagan Miller","total_episodes":118,"type":"show","uri":"spotify:show:2FfTHBcSCR4wozTs1vAXAZ"};
