Episode 5

The Alyona Show episode 5 features an interview with Dr. Bernard Finel from the American Security Project and Josh Ruben from Foreign Policy Magazine. The discussion centers on the use of drones as the new face of warfare in both Afghanistan and Pakistan. Is it cost effective? Does it save lives?

Then, “Interventions”, a book by Noam Chomsky, has been banned at Guantanamo Bay by the Pentagon. What are they so scared of?

Plus, gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia are making noise nationally. Alyona asks Ari Melber of the Nation, if Democrats lose, should this be treated as a referendum on Barack Obama and his policies.

Finally, Alyona talks to Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks about the Michael Jackson film, “This Is It”. Global obsession or just escapism?
