I won't bother to write a long detailed review,because on my last attempt it was mysteriously deleted.Nor will I attempt to cover the whole theme of Chossudovsky's book.The most shocking revelation for me was the strong evidence presented in Chapter XV1, 'The Spoils of War:Afghanistan's Multi billion Dollar Heroin Trade'.Professor Chossudovsky provides tables and statistics which indicate that the Heroin Trade is the third most profitable commodity in Global trade, only exceeded by oil and timber production.This trade is sponsored by powerful interests who operate through proxies. The proceeds of this trade are laundered through the Banks and are worth something like 90 billion a year.Those proceeds are then used to finance legitimate businesses.This is only the tip-of-the iceberg as it were.Read this book for yourself,and you will realise,that if Chossudovsky's thesis is correct, those in power are ultimately criminal. And the evil which calls itself,among other names, the C.I.A. has,as its agenda,according to Professor Chossudovsky,
the expansion and extension of " The American Empire." There are of course many more topics such as 9/11;HAARP,the connection with the Bin Ladens and the Bushes.The New World Order and much more.This book is well researched,and can be supported by checking notes and references.Altogether a highly creditable and well documented book.Reading it will change the way one sees the world.

America's war on terrorism is a brilliant book. Professor Chossudovsky has done a good job , a lot of research and he is a very well documented and informed writter.. He explains in detail the evil of those in power who have lied and deceaved not only the American people but the whole world. The evil of the empire who has forced its hegemony not only in South East Asia in the infamous Viet Nam war during the kennedy-Johnson regimes but also in South and Central America in the Regan years and has continued unbridled making wars in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, the Balkan States, the Middle East and continues intimidating the ones who oppose to its dominance and hegemony by using its military might.
However Mr. Chossudovsky fails to reveal the real causes and the criminals who are behind all this mess and are responsible for all the conflicts that are destroying the very fabric of the American democracy and economy.
He keeps mentioning the ICI (Pakistan Military Intelligence) and every body else as the ones who were behind 9/11. He blames the Bush Administration, the State Department, the Anglo American Oil Giants, Wall Street, the powerful media giants and the Washington think tanks operating discretely behind the scenes but he deliberately fails to mention the work of Israel in the United States through the Zionist Power Configuration in high ranking positions in the US governmet who work as a transmission belt from Tel Aviv to Washington.
Prior to 9/11 powerful officials in the Pentagon like Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Pearle, Elliot Abrams, Douglas Feith (All of them Zionist Jews) who were cought stealing and passing top secret documents to Israel. Douglas Faith created "The Office of Special Plans" who fabricated the false information for the Iraq war.
When the Pentagon offices are flooded, like a crowded bordello on Saturday night with Israeli intelligence officers, crowding out even members of their own Pentagon staff full of Mossad agents, full of Israeli generals consulting day by day, hour by hour in the making of Iraq policy and this is very well documented a hundred times.
There is overwhelming evidence that American and Israel officials didn't just have foreknowledge of the event, but planned the attack and carried it out. It was Mossad-CIA false flag used to protect the Zionist entity from any future military threat and expand the parasitic hegemony of the illegitimate Tel viv regime throughout the world via Zionist inspired "war on terror".
All these wars in the Middle East and Central Asia were done to favor Israel supremacy, hegemony, dominance and expansionism in the Middle East and to take out of the picture Saddam Hussein a staunch supporter of the Palestinian cause, with the money and blood of the American people.
Read "the Power of Israel in the United States" by James Petras. There are many other books on the subject, videos, conferences etc.....

Apparently, Professor Michel Chossudovsky was the subject several years ago of a vicious attack by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. It seems that there had been material on a web site associated with Dr. Chossudovsky suggesting the possibility that there may have been Israeli involvement in the tragedy of "911". Notably, it also seems that Dr. Chossudovsky did not himself author said material. But the existence of this material associated with a public figure like Chossudovsky was enough for the ADL, which operates pretty much like the old Stalinist secret police. Chossudovsky was silenced. And we can see in reading his otherwise noteworthy book that this experience has weighed heavily on him since. Specifically policed out of this account is any mention whatsoever of Zionism, Israel, or the conflict in the Middle East, which is absolutely essential to understanding the black operation known as the American "War on Terror".

This book is deeply tarnished by the factors noted above. To its credit, the book does accurately depict CIA involvement in the creation of the enigmatic figure known to the world as Osama Bin Laden. And, like his colleagues at Global Research, Dr. Chossudovsky attributes much of the world's current woes to competition over naturual resources, such as petroleum and natural gas. No doubt, this explains some things. But it is equally certain that all is not explained by these factors. When Dr. Chossudovsky chose, due evidently to the previously mentioned harsh experience, to police out of his account the factors most dispositive of America's "War on Terrorism", he tragically compromised his effort. The writing is good. And the book is otherwise well done. But this calls to mind the story told about the man talking to Mary Todd Lincoln after the assassination of her husband at the Ford Theatre, which occured during the rendition of the play, "Our American Cousins":

"Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?"

In short, the book is sanitized and compromised. We cannot therefore honestly recommend it to those who would understand this very important subject. While we can certainly under Dr. Chossudovsky's position on this, we cannot commend it.

Must read book if you want to understand the world today.
Michel Chossudovsky presents the truth and describes well the forces and player behind global events.

See Global Research

Chossudovsky writes a convincing account of the American administration involvement in the 9/11 affair. He clearly showed that this sort of false flag machinations has been done many times before but may be not with such dramatic effect. To one who regularly reads about world news from different sources it helps put the missing bits together. I am extremely grateful to Chossudovsky for this excellent book.

An eye opener! Chossudovsky gets one to connect the dots on this subject. Besides, his presentation is not just chatter. He presents many, well researched references!
