The bigger question would be where does old Noam get his info from? Does he have some kind of connections with anti-US/Western intelligence or does he just try and make sense of skewed information provided by varied media sources? He seems to speak about things with alot of authority. One can try and divine some kind of reason behind global events but ultimately it dissolves into speculation. Noam has alot of things to say--my question is what are his sources?
"when you hit fragile things with a sledgehammer unpleasant things can happen" (camera cuts off, interview resumes a later point) Can anyone remind me of the doctinre of destroying the political realms of the middle east? fracturing them so as to render them a uncohesive society?
