PRA Archive #:

Description: 

Phone interview with noted linguist and scholar of international relations concerning the United States' military presence around the globe. He argues that the United States will not feel safe until the Soviet Union is reduced to Third World status, and Third World intervention is no longer needed to maintain the stability of "friendly" governments. Chomsky points to the breakup of Eastern European ties to the Soviet Union, which in turn the Soviet Union uses as a source of cheap labor and markets. At the core, however, the United States wishes to stand ready for military intervention around the globe.|WHY DOES WASHINGTON NEED A WAR MACHINE IF THE COLD WAR IS OVER? / Noam Chomsky| interviewed by Philip Maldari.
