A dangerous addiction to war is a result of what our guest retired Lt Col. William Astore calls victory disease. He actually served at the nuclear trigger under 2000 feet of granite. Reagan fired up the desire for conquest, but what the real “new morning in America” we need now is to be a normal country in normal times. Astore worries that our re-awakened cold war attitude is a serious threat to democracy at home. Peace is a frightening threat to the military-industrial-congressional complex. And for those who think peace is only for dreamy liberals, remember Trump’s 2016 message of ending foreign entanglements resonated for a win.
