I have a feeling that this is one book that will stand out as very prophetic in a few years.
In sixteen thought-provoking chapters, the author
discusses, among other topics, a comparison of the
zealous mindsets of Ossama bin Laden and George W.
Bush, the rise of the religious right and its growing
influence in the Republican Party, the international
implications of the "Bush Doctrine" of September,
2002, and the strategic importance of oil.
One of the most enlightening sections in this timely
book is the discussion of the "Just War Theory".
Is George W. Bush's war of aggression against Iraq a
"Just War"? The author emphatically answers No. He
presents a clear case against a war which has so far
caused more than 25,000 deaths, most of them civilian,
including those of more than 1,000 young Americans
sent half way around the world. For what? Nobody seems
to know, since the official rationales for starting
this war have disappeared one after the other, some
being outright lies.
This was not a war of "last resort", since Wolfowitz,
Cheney and Co had been planning the invasion of Iraq
for more than a decade. It would seem now that the war
in Iraq is not being fought with the "right
intentions": Wolfowitz and Cheney have mentioned, on
numerous occasions, that "Iraq's oil" had to be
secured. There was no "just cause" either since Iraq
had no military capabilities to threaten the United
States, or any other country for that matter.Read more ›
The New American Empire comes highly recommended and I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. NOT TO BE MISSED.
