Join Professor Jeffrey Sachs and political and media analyst Mr Norman Solomon to discuss Mr Solomon’s new book, ‘War Made Invisible: How America Hides the Human Toll of Its Military Machine’.

Together, they delve into the intricate relationship between mainstream media and influential political forces that drive America's disastrous ‘wars of choice’, including the US-led conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, as well as the ongoing US-Russia proxy war in Ukraine and the US support for Israel’s actions in Gaza.

Mr Solomon's book explores how American foreign policy has led to a continuous state of war, and the how the media systematically hide the tragic human and political consequences of these wars, allowing the government to carry on with these conflicts.
