Most wars are for profit, and this book sheds more light about the connection between Israel and Iran Contra. I am amazed at the interviews he obtained with some of these Israelis. And some of their candid remarks about how they feel about "Gentiles". Not very suprising really, as history has shown us. Nevertheless its a must read as Israel is prolific in their entaglement for profit and otherwise in a lot of the ugliest killings around the world. Its sad to read then and even now how civilians are slaughtered by killers trained and supplied by Israel, and then for the Israeli trainers to say, they don't care what Gentiles do with the bombs as long as Israelis make a profit.
Most US government as so afraid to speak the truth about Israel, witness how Netanyahoo lectures Obama to a White house audience, how the Israeli bombing and killing of US sailors on USS Liberty, etc, etc, is never addressed by the US government, and in fact the information is suppressed. And we think we are the superpower?? The truth is we have been hit by a deadly virus that has infilttrated all levels of government using greed, blackmail and other tools. You won't hear our "patriots" take on this virus!
When I read a book like this, I always look into the sources, and am especially pleased when the authors provide you with an annotated bibliography, so you can look and see which sources they agree with or approve of, and which they reject. Here, the main clue is that the authors appear to revere Noam Chomsky: any historian with any objectivity will tell you Chomsky would make Karl Marx look close to Rush Limbaugh politically. The authors are also so relentlessly cynical it defies belief: does no one in either the American or Israeli governments act for any reason other than personal gain? Or perhaps they're motivated by base goals: power for their countries at everyone else's expense. Whatever, no one in the book with very few exceptions is portrayed in a positive light. Every president from Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan (pretty much the gamut of American politics) is portrayed negatively. And frankly, while I'm no big fan of Carter politically, I don't believe he used the obscenity attributed to him towards the end of the book. That just makes the whole book less believable. The final result is that the whole book for me, submerges into irrelevance. I wouldn't recommend this book much for anyone.
