February 9, 2015 - America's Relationship with War

  • 02/09/2015

Panelists Michael McKean, Kimberly Dozier, Negin Farsad and Wes Moore join Larry for a discussion about ISIS as well as the U.S.'s foggy relationship with war.

>> LARRY: TONIGHTLY -- WAR,WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

I HAVE NO IDEA.

I WAS JUST ASKING YOU GUYS.

WE LOOK AT OUR RELATIONSHIP WITHWAR AND REVISIT THE MOVIE "BLACK

HAWK DOWN," OR AS BRIAN WILLIAMSCALLS IT, "THE BRIAN WILLIAMS

STORY."

AND OBAMA BRINGS UP THE CRUSADESAT THE NATIONAL PRAYER

BREAKFAST. IT WAS A ROUSINGSPEECH TO THE TROOPS...

THE ONES FIGHTING A THOUSANDYEARS AGO.

THIS IS NOT AN INQUISITION, BUTI AM GOING TO ASK A LOT OF

QUESTIONS.

LET'S GET TO IT!

COMEDY CENTRAL>> Larry: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WELCOME TO "THE NIGHTLY SHOW.

I'M LARRY, LARRY, LARRY -- LARRYWILMORE.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU'VE ALL HEARD WHAT'S GOING ONWITH NBC NEWS ANCHOR BRIAN

WILLIAMS.

NOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVEACCUSED HIM OF LYING.

I'M NOT GOING TO GO THAT FAR,BUT IT DOES APPEAR THAT SOMEBODY

HAS BEEN SLOW-JAMMING THE TRUTH.

>> NBC'S BRIAN WILLIAMS, HE'SSTEPPING AWAY TEMPORARILY FROM

THE NBC NIGHTLY NEWS DESK.

>> HE GOT CAUGHT IN A LIE ABOUTBEING ON A HELICOPTER THAT CAME

UNDER FIRE IN IRAQ.

>> I MADE A MISTAKE IN RECALLINGTHE EVENTS OF 12 YEARS AGO.

>> Larry: IT'S A SIMPLE MISTAKE.

AS A FELLOW PURVEYOR OF FAKENEWS, PART OF ME SYMPATHIZES

WITH BRIAN WILLIAMS.

I UNDERSTAND HOW STORIES GETBLURRED OVER THE YEARS,

ESPECIALLY IN TENSE SITUATIONS.

ONCE I REPORTED THAT ICOLD-COCKED GEORGE FOREMAN IN

HIS GRILL.

TURNS OUT, I JUST PUT COLD-CUTSON A GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL.

GOT IT CONFUSED.

OKAY?

EASY MISTAKE.

IN A WEIRD WAY, BRIAN WILLIAMS'CONFUSION IS THE PERFECT

METAPHOR FOR THE ENTIRE WAR ONTERROR -- NOBODY HAS A DAMN CLUE

WHAT'S GOING ON.

WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING IN THISTHING SINCE 2003.

WE STARTED BY LOOKING FORWMDs, WHICH AT THE TIME I

ASSUMED WAS A WAY TO CLASSIFYYOURSELF ON A DATING SITE.

AND I REMEMBER THINKING, "WHYARE WE SEARCHING FOR WHITE

MIDDLE-AGED DADS" IN IRAQ?

DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

WE'VE GOT ENOUGH OF THEM HERE.

TURNS OUT WE WERE LOOKING FORWEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION BUT

FOUND NEITHER.

THEN WE DECIDED THAT THAT WARWASN'T THAT EXCITING, SO WE

SAID, LET'S FOCUS ONAFGHANISTAN.

THAT'S WHERE BIN LADEN WAS, ANDHE WAS THE REAL BAD GUY.

AND THEN BLAH BLAH BLAH, CUT TOA FEW YEARS LATER, JESSICA

CHASTAIN TOOK CARE OF HIM.

BUT THEN WE JUST KEPT FIGHTING.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF WE WON.

I KNOW WE KIND OF LEFT.

BUT WE'RE STILL KIND OF HANGINGOUT THERE.

LIKE WHEN YOU GRADUATE FROM HIGHSCHOOL AND YOU STILL GO TO THE

DANCES AND IT'S REALLY AWKWARD.

AND NOBODY REALLY TELLS YOU TOLEAVE, BUT EVERYBODY WANTS YOU

TO.

I'M SPEAKING, OF COURSE, OF AFRIEND.

AT THIS POINT, WE AS AMERICANSARE ABOUT AS UNCLEAR ABOUT THE

CURRENT STATE OF OUR ROLE IN THEMIDDLE EAST AS I AM ABOUT THE

CURRENT STATE OF BRUCE JENNER'SPENIS.

I THINK IT'S STILL THERE.

I'M JUST NOT SURE.

AND NOW WE HAVE A NEW ENEMY,I.S.I.S.

THESE GUYS ARE THE REAL DEAL.

I MEAN, EVEN AL QUAIDA SAID,"HEY, HEY, SLOW YOUR TERROR

ROLL.

I MEAN, WE'RE DICKS, BUT YOUGUYS ARE JUST PLAIN

UNREASONABLE."

THAT'S AN EXACT QUOTE FROMAL QUAIDA.

BUT ONE THING ABOUT I.S.I.S. ISTHAT AT LEAST WE AREN'T GOING TO

BE AS CONFUSED FIGHTING THEM,BECAUSE THEY HAVE A CLEAR-CUT

GOAL.

>> I.S.I.S. HAS MADE IT CLEARTHEY WANT A CALIPHATE OVER THE

BORDERS OF SYRIA AND IRAQ.

>> Larry: YOU SEE?

NOTHING TO BE CONFUSED ABOUT.

THEY WANT A CALIPHATE.

NOW IF ONLY ANYONE IN AMERICAKNEW WHAT A CALIPHATE WAS.

OKAY.

I'M JUST GOING TO ASSUME IT'SSOMETHING THOSE BAD PEOPLE

SHOULDN'T HAVE.

GOOD.

GOT THE CALIPHATE DOWN.

WHAT ARE THEIR OTHER OBJECTIVES?

WELL, THEY'RE TERRORISTS, WHICHMEANS ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS

ATTACK THE WEST.

I MEAN, THAT'S LIKE MIDDLE EASTTERRORISM 101.

>> ISLAMIC STATE MILITANTSCAPTURED A JORDANIAN PILOT.

>> TECHNICALLY, JORDAN IS WESTOF IRAQ.

MAN, IT'S STARTING TO GETCONFUSING AGAIN.

WELL, AT LEAST WE CAN ASSUMETHEY'RE RADICAL ISLAMISTS,

RIGHT?

>> PRESIDENT OBAMA DEFENDING HISCHOICE NOT TO LABEL THE

TERRORISM AS AN ISLAMIC STATEWAR ON ISLAM.

>> YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

LET'S GO BACK TO THE BASICS.

I'M GOING TO BE AS SIMPLE ASPOSSIBLE.

THEIR NAME IS I.S.I.S.

>> THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATIONISN'T CALLING IT ISIS ANYMORE

OR EVEN I.S.I.L.

THE NAME HAS BEEN CHANGED.

WHAT ARE THEY CALLING THESESAVAGES NOW?

DAESH WHICH IS THE ORIGINALARABIC NAME AS I UNDERSTAND IT.

>> Larry: OK, WHAT THE HELL?SCREW THIS.

THEY'RE AN EVIL GROUP KILLING INTHE NAME OF RELIGION, AND WE

AMERICANS NEED TO GET ON OURHIGH HORSE AND KILL THEM AND

MAKE SURE RELIGION HAS NOTHINGTO DO WITH IT.

COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, COMMAND US.

>> LEST WE GET ON OUR HIGH HORSEAND THINK THIS IS UNIQUE TO SOME

OTHER PLACE, REMEMBER THATDURING THE CRUSADES AND

INQUISITION, PEOPLE COMMITTEDTERRIBLE DEEDS IN THE NAME OF

CHRIST.

>> Larry: I CAN'T EVEN GET ONMY HIGH HORSE?

WHAT DID SHADOW SCOUT EVER DO TOYOU?

APPARENTLY THAT'S MY HIGH HORSE.

(LAUGHTER)MAN!

I THOUGHT WE WERE SUPPOSED TOHATE THESE GUYS, AND NOW YOU'RE

BRINGING UP OUR DIRTY CHRISTIANLAUNDRY.

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO HATE IF I'MTHINKING ABOUT WHAT WE DID IS

THIS THAT'S NOT FAIR.

WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TOCONFUSE ME WITH COMPASSION AND

FACTS, OBAMA?

YOU MAKE ME MAD ALL THE TIME.

ALL RIGHT.

SINCE WE'RE TALKING ABOUTHISTORY, I DON'T RECALL OTHER

PRESIDENTS MAKING US FEEL ALLGUILTY BEFORE WE GOT OUR KILLING

ON.

DURING WORLD WAR II, YOU NEVERHEARD F.D.R. SAY, "WHEN YOU'RE

KILLING NAZIS, DON'T FORGET TOREMEMBER THAT WE SLAUGHTERED

NATIVE AMERICANS!

GO GET 'EM BOYS! JUST KEEPING IT100.

GO GET 'EM BOYS! JUST KEEPING IT100.

THERE'S NOTHING TO FEAR BUT THE(BLEEP) WE'VE DONE IN THE PAST."

LOOK, HERE'S ALL I'M ASKING.

PRESIDENT OBAMA, WHAT DO YOUWANT FROM US?

JUST TELL US.

WE'RE LEFT FEELING LIKE THE GUYWHOSE GIRLFRIEND WANTS HIM TO

FIGURE OUT HOW SHE'S FEELING.

BUT GUYS CAN'T DO THAT.

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT MIND READERS.

YOU HAVE TO TELL US WHAT TO DOSO EVERYONE CAN GET ON WITH

DINNER, AN EPISODE OF "SCANDAL,"FOLLOWED BY MEDIOCRE MAKE-UP

SEX.

THAT'S HOW IT WORKS.

ALL WE WANT IS SOME CLARITY.

ARE WE AT WAR WITH I.S.I.S. ORNOT?

IF WE ARE, WHAT DO YOU WANT FROMUS?

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOW DIDOLIVIA GET OUT OF THAT PRISON?

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Larry: WELCOME BACK TO THESHOW!

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT OURRELATIONSHIP WITH WAR.

JOINING US ON OUR PANELTONIGHT -- ONE OF THE STARS OF

THE NEW AMC SHOW "BETTER CALLSAUL," MICHAEL McKEAN;

CNN GLOBAL AFFAIRS ANALYST AND"DAILY BEAST" CONTRIBUTOR

KIMBERLY DOZIER;COMEDIAN AND FILMMAKER NEGIN

FARSAD; AND AUTHOR OF THE NEWBOOK, "THE WORK, MY SEARCH FOR A

LIFE THAT MATTERS," WES MOORE.

THANK YOU GUYS.

I MADE JOKES AT BRIAN WILLIAMS'EXPENSE, BUT I WANT TO GO WITH

"FOG OF WAR" WHICH I THINK IS ANINTERESTING ANALOGY.

I FEEL LIKE WE'RE IN A FOG OFWAR RIGHT NOW.

AS A VETERAN WHO SERVED INAFGHANISTAN, DO YOU THINK

AMERICANS ARE CONNECTED TO THISFIGHT AT ALL?

WHAT IS YOUR ASSESSMENT OF THAT?

>> YEAH, I THINK AMERICANSHAVEN'T REALLY FULLY BEEN

CONNECTED TO THIS FIGHT SINCE ITBEGAN.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ANATION OF -- WE'VE HAD

2.6 MILLION VETS IN THISCOUNTRY WHICH REPRESENTS LESS

THAN 1% OF OUR NATION'SPOPULATION. EVEN THOSE WITH

ANY TYPE OF DIRECT CONNECTIONWHATSOEVER LIKE A PARENT, SPOUSE

OR SIBLING, THAT NUMBER ONLYRISES TO 3.5 IN THE COUNTRY, SO

ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THEPOPULATION HAVE HAD A DIRECT

CONNECTION.>> Larry: IT USED TO BE SO

UBIQUITOUS THAT YOU COULD MAKEFUN OF THE MILITARY, WE

HAD SERGEANT BILLCO.>> RIGHT.

>> Larry: KIM DO YOU THINK THEBRIAN WILLIAMS THING, LOSING OUR

TRUST IN MEDIA FIGURES, DO YOUTHAT HURTS OUR CONNECTION TO WAR

>> IF WE ARE YOUR TRANSLATORSFOR BRINGING THE WAR BACK HERE,

ABSOLUTELY. WHEN I GO ON THEAIR I WANT PEOPLE TO TRUST WHAT

I'VE SEEN, TRUST MY MEMORIES.THAT'S WHAT A NOTEBOOK IS FOR.

THAT'S WHAT THE VIDEOTAPE ISFOR.

>> Larry: WHAT YOU WANT US TODO THE WORK?

(APPLAUSE)MICHAEL, IT'S HARD TO TRUST WHAT

OUR LEADERS SAY, GIVING US THEMIXED MESSAGES.

>> REALLY! YOU THINK?>> Larry: ESPECIALLY THESE DAYS

BUSH WAS ALL GUNG HO, ANDOBAMAIS LIKE, WHOA, WHOA.

WHO CAN WE TRUST? HOW CAN WE GETCORRECT INFORMATION?

>> OFTEN WE GET THE CORRECTINFORMATION 20 YEARS LATER.

THE LAST FEW WEEKS, THERE ISTHIS THESE NEW REVELATIONS ABOUT

POSSIBILE REVELATIONS WITH THESAUDIS AS BEING

ONE OF THE PRIME MOVERS BEHIND9/11.

I SAID WHAT ARE THE PERCENTAGEOF THE HIJACKERS WHO WERE

SAUDIS?

>> Larry: I THINK AROUND1,000%.

>> ROUNDING IT UP?

(LAUGHTER)BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT, THERE

REALLY IS THE LIE THAT ROLLSLIKE A SNOWBALL.

>> Larry: IT'S HARD TO GET ANYKIND OF INFORMATION RIGHT AWAY.

>> RIGHT.

>> Larry: SOMETIMES WEPROBABLY SHOULDN'T HAVE ALL THE

INFORMATION RIGHT AWAY.

I'M CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT OURFOCUS SHOULD BE.

THE PRESIDENT, AGAIN, HE TALKEDABOUT ISLAMOPHOBIA.

>> THE PRESIDENT WAS JUST SAYINGLET'S NOT BE BIGOTS IN OUR OWN

COUNTRY.>> HE KNOWS HOW WE LOVE TO HATE

>> THE FIRST THINGTRADITIONALLY IN A WAR IS TO

DEMONIZE THE ENEMY. I.S.I.S. ISCERTAINLY MEETING US HALFWAY.

YOU WANT DEMONS?

WE GOT 'EM!

>> Larry: WHAT SHOULD OUR ROLEAS CIVILIANS BE?

>> ONE OF THE REASONS THAT THEPRESIDENT HAS TRIED NOT TO CALL

THEM ISLAMIC MILITANTS IS OURMUSLIM ALLIES ASKED US NOT TO

USE THAT TERM.

THEY SAID WE DON'T WANT YOU TOPLAY INTO THE ISLAMIC STATE

GROUPS TO MAKE THIS LOOK LIKE AFIGHT BETWEEN ISLAM AND THE

WEST.

THAT'S WHY YOU'VE HEARD THEM USETHE TERM "DAESH," THE ARABIC

INITIALS FOR ISLAMIC STATE, BUTALSO --

>> THAT'S WHAT SEAN CONNERYROLLS WHEN HE PLAYS MONOPOLY

(LAUGHTER)>> THE ISLAMIC STATE DOESN'T

LIKE IT BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKETO ARABIC WORD TO CRUSH

SOMETHING UNDER YOUR BOOT. SOTHEY DON'T LIKE IT AND

THAT'S WHY WE'VE ADOPTED IT ATTHE GOVERNMENT LEVEL.

>> Larry: HOW IMPORTANT IS ITTO CLASSIFY WHO THEY ARE?

IS IT THAT IMPORTANT TO PUT ASTRICT NAME AND FACE ON IT?

>> WHAT'S IMPORTANT IS WEUNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF WHAT WE

TALK ABOUT.

I THINK THE PRESIDENTUNDERSTANDS THAT THIS IS A LONG

GAME, YOU CAN CALL IT WHAT YOUWANT, BUT THERE'S NOT A SINGLE

MILITARY SOLUTION ALONE.

>> Larry: DO YOU THINK HE'SALWAYS LOOKING AT THE LONG GAME?

THAT'S WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO ME.

I'M NOT SAYING THAT'S GOOD ORBAD BUT --

>> YOU MEAN ABOUT HIS PRAYERBREAKFAST REMARK?

>> Larry: THAT AND THE WAY HE TALKS ABOUT THINGS ALL THE

TIME.

I THINK, WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?

I FORGOT HE'S SMARTER THAN ME.

>> THE OTHER THING ABOUT A HIMIS HE IS A PERSON OF COLOR AND

HE'S MORE SENSITIVE TO ISSUES OFBIGOTRY AND I THINK HE DOESN'T

WANT TO EQUATE ISLAM WITHEXTREMIST VIOLENT PEOPLE.

>> Larry: DO YOU THINK IT'SHARDER BECAUSE HE'S A SECRET

MUSLIM FROM KENYA?

(LAUGHTER)I BETTER SLOW MY ROLL ABOUT THE

WAY I TALK ABOUT THIS!

SOMEBODY MIGHT FIGURE IT OUT!

>> HE MIGHT BE MORE IN TUNE WITHTHEM BECAUSE WE'RE BOTH MUSLIM,

I'M NOT SURE.

>> Larry: EXACTLY.

HOW DO WE CONNECT MORE?

DO MORE PEOPLE NEED TO BE IN THEMILITARY, YOU THINK?

>> NO, IT'S NOT NECESSARILY THATMORE PEOPLE NEED TO GO OUT --

>> Larry: DO WE NEED A DRAFT?

WE WERE MORE DIVISIVE DURING THEDRAFT BUT IN SOME WAYS THE DRAFT

GIVES EVERYONE A STAKE IN IT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

>> I BEAT IT HAPPILY. IT'SNOTHING TO APPLAUD, BELIEVE ME

THE LIFE I WAS LIVING, I WASSURPRISED THEY LET ME INTO THE

PARKING LOT.

I WAS A PRETTY MESSY TEENAGER.

NO, BUT THEY TOOK A LOOK AT MEAND PASSED AND I'M SO LUCKY.

THEN THEY HAD THE DRAFT LOTTERYWHICH IS THE MOST DEMOCRATIC

THING ACCORDING TO SHIRLEYJACKSON THAT WE CAN DO.

I HAD A HIGH NUMBER AND TOTALLYLUCKED OUT.

THIS WAS DURING VIETNAM WHICH NOONE HAS EXPLAINED WHAT THAT WAR

WAS ABOUT.

>> WHAT CAN YOU TELL PEOPLE TOSAY OTHER THAN THANK YOU FOR

YOUR SERVICE?

BECAUSE WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT IKNOW THEY'RE TRYING TO GENERALLY

CONNECT WITH VETERANS.

>> HOW ABOUT "HERE'S SOMEHEALTHCARE?"

>> I THINK THE BIG THING IS,FROM A VETERAN'S STANDPOINT, WE

LOVE "THANK YOU FOR YOURSERVICE" BECAUSE IT MEANS A LOT

AND IT'S VERY HEARTFELT WHENIT'S SAID.

BUT WE DON'T WANT THANK YOU FORYOUR SERVICE TO BE THE END OF

THE CONVERSATION.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE, NOWLET ME MOVE ON AND GET MY LATTE.

ASK ME ABOUT MY SERVICE ANDUNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE THANKING

ME FOR.

>> Larry: IF YOU COULD TELLTHE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BECAUSE I

THINK SOMETIMES WE SHOULDN'THEAR FROM THE PRESIDENTS AND THE

MEDIA, WE SHOULD HEAR FROM THEMILITARY, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF

SOMEONE ASKED YOU WHAT IT'SABOUT?

>> FROM THE VAST MAJORITY OFSOLDIERS I SERVE WITH, YOU WON'T

HEAR A MAJOR SOCIOECONOMICDISSERTATION OF WHAT THEY WERE

FIGHTING FOR. THEY'RE FIGHTINGFOR THE MEN AND WOMEN TO

TO THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT, TOPUT EVERYTHING INTO MAKING SURE

THE PERSON TO THE LEFT ANDRIGHT GO HOME TO THEIR FAMILIES.

(APPLAUSE)>> Larry: SOMETIMES THE BEST

THING YOU CAN SAY IS IAPPRECIATE YOU LOOKING AFTER

EACH OTHER AND LOOKING AFTER US.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH "KEEP IT100".

>> Larry: THANK YOU!

OKAY.

IT'S TIME FOR THE SEGMENT WELIKE TO CALL "KEEP IT 100".

FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO DON'TKNOW WHAT THAT EXPRESSION MEANS,

IT MEANS KEEP IT 100% REAL.

LIKE "TRUTH OR DARE," EXCEPTHERE IT'S ONLY TRUTH

SO I'M GONNA ASK EACH OF YOU AQUESTION, AND IN YOUR ANSWER YOU

HAVE TO KEEP IT 100% REAL.

AND IF YOU DO, THE AUDIENCE WILLCLAP.

YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TOGET RID OF ONE OF THESE THINGS

AND YOU WILL DEFINITELY GET RIDOF IT.

ISLAMOPHOBIA OR SEXISM.

BUT WHEN YOU GET RID OF THE ONE,IT MAKES THE OTHER ONE WORSE.

WHICH ONE DO YOU GET RID OF?
