The American author Mark Twain famously said: "God created war so Americans would learn geography." While Twain was known for his humor, this quip appears to hold some truth. Since the start of the Cold War, the US has been involved militarily in several foreign countries, often leading to long conflicts and thousands of deaths. Direct Impact's host Rick Sanchez delves into the US history of war and the public's view of these conflicts. Rick speaks with human rights lawyer and professor Dan Kovalik about the public's failure to question their country's participation in foreign conflicts.
