De-Manufacturing Consent: Drugs & Terror: U.S. Imperialism in Latin America

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Dr. Oliver Villar

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by author of the book, Cocaine, Death Squads, and the War on Terror: U.S. Imperialism and Class Struggle in Colombia, Dr. Oliver Villar. Guillermo and Dr. Villar discuss the global drug trade within the context of U.S. imperialistic ambitions around the world, using Colombia and its ongoing civil war as a specific case study. What is a "narco-state"? Who are the real "narco-terrorists"? What explains the sudden rise and dramatic falls of kingpin front-men like Pablo Escobar? We explore the answers to these questions, and much, much more.
