This week’s Ring of Fire, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and Sam Seder: Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

Stepping into the Ring of Fire this week:  Congressman Jerrold Nadler will be joining us to tell us why the only option for American forces in Afghanistan is to pull out of the country completely.

We’ll also be taking a look at the assault on labor unions – Andy Kroll from Mother Jones will give us an up to date analysis of what’s happening in Wisconsin.  And Joshua Holland from Alternet will tell us how Republicans are attacking labor unions in their continued class warfare.

And attorney Peter Mougey will be joining us to discuss Bernie Madoff’s recent claim that the banks he worked with had to have known that he was a scam artist.
