Who Wants to Invade Iran?

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


From the latest broadcast of Mother Jones Radio:

  • Who wants to invade Iran? Joe Cirincione of the Center for American Progress says the neoconservatives want to, but he doesn’t think they’ll succeed: “I don’t believe that the neocons for all their big bluster, for all their big lie techniques, are going to be able to do to us what they did in 2001 and 2003.”

  • Suellen Miller says a simple, $150 device can save the lives of thousands of women around the world who are at risk from dying during childbirth. Miller explains the “life wrap,” which looks like a wet suit, and tells us how it can save lives.

  • An ominous “dead zone” where aquatic life can’t survive has appeared off the coast of Oregon again. Is global warming the cause? We talk to Jane Lubchenco, a marine biologist from Oregon State University.

  • Who’s making good political music these days? Music and politics organization Music for America is distributing podcasts of the “Top 50 Progressive Songs” We talk to MFA director Molly Moon Neitzel and Geologic of the Blue Scholars, a hip-hop group on the organization’s Top 50 list.
