#358 Larry C Johnson is a veteran of the CIA and the State Department’s Office of Counter Terrorism. He is the founder and managing partner of BERG Associates, which was established in 1998. Larry provided training to the US Military’s Special Operations community for 24 years. He has been vilified by the right and the left, which means he must be doing something right. He blogs at www.Sonar21.com.

The KunstlerCast theme music is the beautiful Two Rivers Waltz written and performed by Larry Unger.

    As always, Jim, a great interview and a great time to interview Larry. I do kinda’ wish you had asked him about the sinking of the Moskva and the role the U.S. had in that. You did touch briefly at the end about the one general but a question on the reported large # of dead Russian generals would also have been very enlightening.

    Very interesting podcast MrK and another good blog for me to follow.

    Brilliant guest but full credit to JHK for asking a lot of great questions.

    If only every adult in the West could be forced to listen to this interview….

    Excellent interview, I tip my hat to JHK and Larry Johnson.

    I also appreciate the link to sonar21.com. I visited, good stuff!

    While I’m a big fan of JHK, I had a lot of reservations about Johnson after reading the intro, which is a resume of much that is wrong with the USA. However, I do have an open mind, so if JHK thinks Larry Johnson warrants a Podcast, well, then there must be something there, so I will listen to it before dismissing the source.

    I’m glad I listened.

    JHK has stated, to paraphrase, “suburbia is the greatest misallocation of resources in American history”. I trust I’ve conveyed that close to our host’s original, brilliant line.

    Well, I say the US Military Industrial complex (where, despite my misgivings, for various reason I spent the best years of my life as a member) has been the “most damaging institution in America’s history”.

    Setting aside the far greater damage and cost, that is all the needless deaths, of Americans, and much more so, the “natives”, of places that were of insignificant value to Middle America, to the vast majority of Americans. the massive spending on the military and security state drove deficits, and money creation, required artificially low interest rates, and all of that helped feed the suburbia JHK criticizes so often.

    While Mr. Johnson’s resume reads as an advertisement for much that was, and is, wrong in America, I tip my hat to him and commend him for putting his extensive knowledge and intellect to constructive use, by sharing his insights into what is happening, that only some one who was there and knows can provide, both on the podcast and at sonar21.com.

    Thank you for that. I hope you will continue to update us on what is happening in the Ukraine.

    Priceless Jim, priceless. Who is the biggest donor to the Clinton Crime Cartel? Ukraine? How the fuck can this go un-noticed and not reported on? Oh, that’s right, they own the media. Thank God for people like you and Elon Musk, though it looks like they will be coming for all of us that prefer truth over bullshit soon. Pray constantly!

    Jim, It sure would be a treat for those of us who have been following for decades if you were somehow to get an interview with Matt Taibbi. That might be a pay-per-view event which I would pay for.

    fantastic listen – and i have no doubt whatsoever that American/Ukrainian forces have killed waaayyyyyy more civvies there than Russia has. can’t believe a single word of our MSM or FedGov. not a single. God help us.

    Just FYI: Russia does have a full stack of social network companies (vk.com, ok.com, a domestic search engine (yandex.com), online stores (ozon.ru), and online email (mail.ru), and a bunch of other online services.
