Rules of Engagement: Listener Discussion
America’s use of targeted drone strikes in Pakistan and elsewhere has raised questions about what is — and is not — an appropriate way to wage war. In this episode, the History Guys will look at the ways previous generations have answered these sorts of questions. From the advent of automatic weapons to the atomic bomb; from the suspension of habeus corpus to the use of torture as an interrogation technique; we’ll consider how Americans have drawn the line between what is fair and what is foul.
What questions do you have for the History Guys? Have you or someone you know been forced to deal with the complexities of battle first hand? Are you curious about the deep history of “enhanced interrogation techniques?” Let us know!
