I enjoyed the book but it had some harsh realities that we in America are not aware of. We live in a world in which the news we receive is filtered by our propaganda apparatus (news papers, 24 hour news cycle) which creates the paramaters and framework for the discussion (whether left wing or right wing). The arguments are shaped in a way to provide "some" of the options but not of all of the options in launching our military adventures. (whether "doves" or "hawks" the discussion becomes cynical at best in regards to "all" options, I say "all" sarcastically) We have a kind of "fantasy" reality that does not show the true complexity of the rest of the planet and the understanding of things, such as "blowback" and geo- political decisions being made by our "planners" (military, corporate/political etc.). Folks in other countries are margilized to be just the "other" so the action of our government (whether intended or not) have dire consequences for wide swathes of people in countries we purport to be helping. Strong stuff, but necessary read. Proceed with caution. (if you are not afraid to have your illusions dissipated!)

One of the best pieces of literature I've read this year. Very enlightening. Offers great insight and references to the the subject matter. If you want to know what the realities of American war are. Read this book.

The book made me physically sick by showing absolutely no glory in any of the U.S. Wars. My worst suspicions were documented.

Here is a warning: Books that purport to tell the "truth" are really only giving you a slice of it. This book is clearly a piece propaganda generated by "peace" advocates. Take it for what it is--a peacenik's view of America's wars.
