Credits Dr. Jamshid A. Marvasti, a practicing psychiatrist from Connecticut and author of numerous articles and books on the subject of psychic trauma and psychotherapy. His most recent book is Psycho-Political Aspects of Suicide Warriors, Terrorism and Martyrdom, a Critical View from Both Sides in Regard to Cause and Cure.

Dr. Marvasti argues that it takes ‘two villages’ to raise a terrorist, and the complexities of personalities representing both sides must be explored in order to achieve the kind of understanding that can lead to lasting peace.

We hear a clip provided by journalist and media critic Sam Husseini of the Institute for Public Accuracy. Husseini interviewed Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, asking him if US policy is not like throwing gasoline on a fire in the MidEast. Chertoff replied: 'What my observation of the history of this is that no matter what we do or don't do terrorists are going to carry out their acts, but the thing that is most likely to inspire terrorism is weakness. When terrorists saw us withdrawal from Somalia that actually inspired them to believe they could win against us. When we fight back and when we take the war to them that actually sets them back. There's no doubt in my mind that the war against terror is won through strength and not through weakness, by taking the war to the enemy and not by retreating.'

Dr. Marvasti critiques his remark, and we compare it to statements from others caught up in the Bush adm., characterization of an 'axis of evil' in the MidEast.

This is a small portion of a two hour interview which we will be providing. (and VolodyA! V Anarhist for reencoding and wikification)
